Does OTC Teeth Whitening Really Work?A:
Yes, but not effectively. In order for teeth whitening to be sold without a dentist’s prescription, the whitening agent must be diluted. Plus, you often have to follow complicated instructions or you could have uneven results or damaged enamel. At our Tulsa, OK dental office, you can get professional-strength teeth whitening either in our office or with take-home trays. These will get you the professional results you want.
Q: What Is Laser DentistryA:
Modern technology has changed a lot in our lives, and dentistry is no exception. At our Tulsa, OK dental office, you can get a special dental laser to help in several treatments, making them more comfortable and more effective. Our LANAP system uses a laser to remove infected gum tissue while leaving the healthy tissue untouched. It can also reshape your gums to make your smile look better. TouchWhite™ teeth whitening uses a laser to activate a whitening gel. You can even get laser treatments for root canal treatment, sleep apnea, and facial wrinkles removal.
Q: What Is The Best Toothbrush To BuyA:
When it comes to purchasing a toothbrush, you should look for two things: a small head and soft bristles. A toothbrush with a large head will make it hard to reach your back teeth. A smaller head will help you clean those hard-to-reach teeth. Some people think hard bristles will help keep their teeth cleaner. Unfortunately, they can actually damage your tooth enamel over time. Soft bristles are strong enough to keep your teeth clean.
Our dentists and hygienists at our Tulsa, OK office strongly recommend a powered toothbrush to achieve ideal oral hygiene. Don’t worry about trying to navigate the maze of options in the stores. While at our office, our trained hygienists can show you the best brush for you, instruct you on how to properly use it, and even save you money when you buy.
Q: Can A Dentist Help With SnoringA:
Snoring occasionally is usually not something to worry about. If you suffer from chronic snoring, you could have sleep apnea. This condition occurs when you stop breathing (several times) while you’re asleep. Without a good night’s rest, you’re going to be more irritable and prone to mistakes. Our Tulsa, OK dentists can give you a take-home sleep study to evaluate whether you have sleep apnea. If you do have a mild or moderate case, we can treat it with a special dental appliance you wear over your teeth at night. We can also use a dental laser to help you breathe better and therefore sleep better.
Q: Do You Offer Invisible BracesA:
Metal braces work, but they take a long time and do not look attractive. Instead, you can get Invisalign clear plastic aligners at our Tulsa, OK dental office. This orthodontic treatment gently guides your teeth to where they should be for a straight smile. Because they are made from clear plastic, they are almost completely invisible when worn.
Q: Do You Have Any Dental SpecialsA:
Yes! We always offer free consultations for second opinions or information on a specific concern. Also, we have a $99 new patient special you can take advantage of that includes a full set of digital X-rays with a comprehensive exam and consultation with Dr. Cobble.
Q: Do you accept dental insurance and other financing optionsA:
Yes! To help more patients get the treatments they need, we accept several forms of payment. Of course, you can pay with cash or credit card. When it comes to dental insurance, you can get a free personalized coverage review for your specific insurance carrier and treatment needs. You also may be eligible to work with CareCredit, a company that offers low- and zero-interest financing just for dental treatments you need.
