Life is busy. Work, family, school, home, and the list goes on and on. Sometimes that regular appointment with the dentist isn’t easy to schedule. Rest assured, however, it is time well spent. Preventive and family dentistry with Joe Isaacson, DDS in Oklahoma City, OK, is your first step to oral health, a beautiful smile and even overall health.
Preventive Dentistry is More than Just Cleaning
For a healthy mouth, we recommend a check-up with Dr. Isaacson once every six months for you and your entire family. During your visit, your teeth will be cleaned, of course. But beyond that we can monitor your oral health in order to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer and other conditions.
In addition, Dr. Isaacson and his team will be able to offer you services to treat any condition that can be spotted during a regular visit. For example, we can prevent or treat tooth decay before it progresses. If your children play sports, we can customize athletic mouthguards to protect their teeth and smile. Other services provided during a preventive dentistry visit include:
- Dental Sealants—an invisible plastic coating that is typically applied to back molars to prevent tooth decay
- Night Guards—a custom-fitted appliance worn at night to stop the wear and tear on teeth from grinding
- Fluoride Supplements—a gel, foam or paste that is applied in the office to treat any soft spots on the teeth
- Oral Cancer Screening—a complete examination of the mouth and throat tissue to find any suspicious areas early
Finally, Dr. Isaacson will offer guidance for how you can help keep your oral health at its best by suggesting an at-home hygiene regimen for you and your family.
