Our Office

Located in the Twin Oaks Plaza, near George Bush High School, Gamble Dental is the convenient choice for family dental care to residents of Mission Bend, Aliana, and the surrounding area. 

Outstanding Dental Care Begins At Home

The care your family provides their teeth daily is instrumental in keeping their smiles healthy, and avoiding the complications poor oral hygiene leads to. At a minimum, the American Dental Association recommends brushing teeth twice a day. Make sure toothbrushes are in good condition- if a toothbrush is worn down, it will not provide the cleaning power it was meant to and should be replaced. Use a modest amount of toothpaste and begin brushing, focusing on the outer surfaces, inner surfaces, and chewing surfaces of your teeth. Be sure to give extra attention to the gum-line, and around crowns and fillings. Brushing the tongue can help to freshen breath. After two whole minutes, spit out the toothpaste and rinse your mouth (please monitor any young children to be sure they’re not using too much toothpaste and/or swallowing).

After your teeth have been brushed, they should be flossed, at least once a day, to remove any food particles stuck in-between the teeth. Take a length of floss and gently clean the spaces on the sides of your teeth, even those not touching another tooth. Regular flossing will keep your family’s gums healthy, preventing gingivitis and other gum diseases that, besides giving their smiles an unhealthy appearance, can lead to tooth loss.

Through regular brushing and flossing, your family can help prevent the majority of dental ailments and keep their smiles shining!

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to see the dentist?

Under normal circumstances, patients should visit the dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and examination. Gamble Dental’s staff can clean the hard-to-reach places that sometimes elude toothbrushes. Also, only a professional cleaning can remove harmful material such as calculus, hardened plaque that can not be removed through regular brushing. Timely visits also help ensure that any problems are caught in the developmental stage and complex procedures are avoided.

Is flossing important?

Flossing is a key to oral health, since it helps remove food from between the teeth and gums, where a toothbrush typically can not reach. By keeping these areas clean, your family will keep their gums healthy and firm, and avoid diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis, which can lead to the loosening, and eventually, loss, of teeth.

How should I handle a knocked-out tooth?

A tooth being knocked out is an accident most people are susceptible to, and with proper first aid the likelihood of the dentist of being able to save the tooth is strong. Contact our office immediately, and handle the knocked out tooth very gently, avoiding the roots. If it is dirty, rinse it in water, but avoid soap or cleaning agents, and do not scrub or brush it. Place the tooth in a special solution such as Save-A-Tooth, or milk, for transport to the dentist. Do NOT store in tap water. Time is of the essence, and the sooner a dentist can re-insert the tooth into its socket, the better.

How often should my family brush their teeth?

Ideally, the teeth should be cleaned after every meal, to remove food particles that may be lodged the teeth and gums. Also, beverages such as sodas and sports drinks leave an acidic residue on teeth that eats away at enamel, your tooth’s hard, protective coating, so it is best to clean your teeth after consuming these products as well.

Are X-Rays required?

To help make an accurate diagnosis, Dr. Gamble may have an x-ray taken to help determine the nature or extant of a dental disease or condition. Armed with the knowledge an x-ray provides, he can provide a more effective treatment, in a more efficient manner, than without an x-ray. If Dr. Gamble recommends an x-ray, it is entirely for your benefit. Plus, his convenient hand-held unit makes in-chair x-rays more convenient than ever before.
