Keep Semi-Annual Dental Cleanings
As with your medical health, your dental health is a partnership between you and the dentists at our Tulsa, OK dental office. We both need to do our part to help your teeth stay healthy and beautiful. Of course, you need to brush and floss your teeth regularly. However, only a dentist and dental hygienists have the specialized training and unique tools needed to give your teeth professional dental cleanings. You will also get a dental exam with your twice-yearly visit.
Your Next Dental Exam
After your teeth have been cleaned by our dental hygienists, you will get dental exams. Early detection is the key to maintaining great teeth and avoiding expensive and time-consuming treatments. For example, a cavity that isn’t treated soon enough could require a dental crown or root canal therapy. We use a special dental laser during your dental exams that painlessly detects cavities you cannot see.
We also take fully digital X-rays to see if there are any problems lurking in your teeth or gums. When necessary, we also have state-of-the-art 3D imaging capability that gives us incredibly detailed information for early diagnosis. We can also make a wax impression of your smile.
Caring for Your Teeth at Home
There are several things you and your family should be doing at home to improve your dental health. Probably the biggest thing is to brush and floss regularly. If you’re a parent, be sure to help your younger kids, and let them see you brush and floss. Role modeling like that can be powerful. Also, reduce the amount of sugar your family takes in. Even skip diet sodas, as they’re so acidic that they corrode enamel.
