Below we have listed six ideas for new year’s resolutions that may give you another reason to smile.


◼︎ 1. Schedule regular dental cleanings.

We know that going to the dentist is probably not high on your goals for 2017. Unfortunately too many people never make time for this important part of their health.

Regular professional dental cleanings will remove any plaque or tartar buildup in your mouth. This reduces your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Likewise, dental examinations are how we find those problems in the early stages. This can play a vital role in getting the treatment you need to prevent more serious oral health issues.


◼︎ 2. Learn to manage your dental anxiety.

One of the reasons people avoid coming to the dentist is dental anxiety. It’s OK to feel anxious. Everyone feels anxious about something. If you live in or near Tulsa, our dentists would like to show you how you can get the dental care you need in spite of that anxiety.

Our compassionate staff will do everything we can to help you feel comfortable. We have a variety of ways of helping patients relax, including sedation dentistry. With nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation, you can rest assured that you won’t feel any pain during your treatment.

Contact Masterpiece Smiles today to learn more about what dental sedation could do for you.


◼︎ 3. Remove the stains from your teeth.

Do you like coffee? How about tea? Soft drinks? Wine? Do you eat pasta or other foods with delicious and colorful sauces? Do you have a sweet tooth?

If you said yes to one or more of those things, then you may have developed stains on your teeth over the years. Each sip and each bite can leave behind tiny particles. Over time, they can build on one another to cause our teeth to look yellow or stained.

The fastest and most effective way to remove stains is with professional teeth whitening. Our dentists will be happy to discuss our whitening options during your next appointment at our office.


◼︎ 4. Straighten your smile.

Few people have perfectly straight teeth. If you feel like your teeth are crooked, then you may be interested in Invisalign®. This is an excellent option for many patients.

Where braces used brackets and wires to push and pull your teeth, Invisalign pushes gently against your teeth change their alignment. Invisalign can be used to  close gaps between teeth, put some needed space between crowded teeth, and get crooked teeth to stand straight.

◼︎ 5. End your morning headaches (and other problems).

If you wake up more than you would like with headaches, earaches, or jaw pain, then you may be grinding or clenching your teeth in your sleep. In some cases, this can lead to a temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ disorder.

If you would like to stop the headaches — as well as the wear and tear on your teeth — talk to Dr. Cobble about our teeth grinding treatment. We can design a custom-fitted mouthguard for you to wear at night. This can protect your teeth from one another and change your jaw’s resting position.


◼︎ 6. Replace missing teeth with our restorative dentistry.

Whether you are missing one tooth or an entire row of teeth, we have teeth replacement options that can bring back your smile. More than that, they can restore your ability to comfortably eat the foods that you want to eat.

Dental implants can replace the roots of your missing teeth. They can also support a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures. Those services can replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or a whole row of teeth.
