His team will provide all the comforts you and your family deserve while providing gentle care that you won’t find anywhere else. Providing excellent family dentistry services is what we do best!

 

Family Dentistry

Strong, healthy teeth are important. How important? Let’s start off with the basics, like eating. A healthy set of pearly whites allow you to chew freely, which promotes proper digestion and a healthy diet. On the flip side, a glowing smile will encourage you to meet new people and lead an active lifestyle. No matter how you slice it, having and maintaining a healthy oral regimen is important for your family.

Depending on your oral health, age and lifestyle, our recommendations include the following:

  • Dental sealants – think, plastic coatings that form a barrier against decay.
  • Fluoride supplements – gel, foam or paste that strengthens softened spots on teeth.
  • Athletic mouthguards – custom-fitted mouthguards for athletes of all ages.
  • Nightguards – custom-made, anti-grinding devices to prevent unnecessary tooth wear.
  • Oral cancer screenings – examining oral tissues to detect suspicious areas in the earliest stage.
  • At-home hygiene guidance – recommendations for products and techniques to use at home.

Dr. Isaacson will ensure you and your family’s smiles stay disease-free for years to come. As a family dental practice, we help patients of all ages understand and maintain their oral health. Dr. Isaacson has always said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” With proactive prevention, we can help you avoid tooth decay, gum disease, bad, breath, dental injuries and more.

Dr. Joe Isaacson: The Family Dentist Oklahoma City Knows is OK!

March 12, 2015

465162307As your family dentist, Dr. Joe Isaacson is committed to the complete care of your and your family’s teeth and gums. With this in mind, our family dentistry practice in Oklahoma City, OK, offers a comprehensive menu of preventive and restorative treatments to guarantee you and yours happy and healthy smiles for a lifetime.

The old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure has probably never been truer than with family dentistry. With this in mind, Dr. Isaacson and his staff would like to see you and your family at least twice every year for dental checkups. Regularly scheduled checkups help us monitor your oral health and notice any concerning changes before they become painful or expensive. Of course, at these checkups we’ll also clean your teeth and remove plaque, assess the health of your gums and look for early signs of gum disease, check for tooth decay and take digital x-rays when necessary.

Beyond the Checkup at the Oklahoma City Family Dentist

Family dentistry extends well beyond the checkup to include a variety of procedures that address a number of dental problems. For example, children especially may need fluoride treatments or dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens enamel. Topical fluoride treatments help children fight the battle against decay-causing bacteria. Likewise, dental sealants create a physical barrier between bacteria and the chewing surfaces of your children’s deeply grooved molars where food particles can hide and initiate decay.

If you hear the sound of teeth grinding at night, then someone in your family needs a nightguard to protect those teeth from unnecessary wear and tear. And if there’s an athlete in the family—young or old—then he or she should be wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect teeth, gums, lips and tongue during competition.

If it’s time for you and the ones you love to see the family dentist Oklahoma City, OK, trusts, then schedule an appointment with Dr. Isaacson. We also serve patients from the surrounding communities of Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, and Mustang and beyond.

Have a New Smile for the New Year with Cosmetic Dentistry from Dr. Joe Isaacson

December 12, 2014

100047604Happy New Year! Believe it or not, 2015 is around the corner. Why not greet the New Year with a new smile? If your smile could use a little boost, then consider cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Joe Isaacson in Oklahoma City, OK.

Nowadays, there are so many options that fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry, there’s sure to be one that will be the fix your smile needs. Dr. Isaacson offers a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Teeth Whitening Whether you want quick results or prefer to leisurely whiten your teeth in the privacy of your own home, we have the package for you. With Zoom! 2, we can safely lighten teeth up to 14 shades in about an hour in our office. The patented whitening gel is activated by a special light and the results are significant. With our take-home whitening system, we’ll give you custom-fitted mouth trays and professional grade gel.

Veneers and Lumineers If you have teeth that are moderately chipped, cracked, or crooked, you may want to consider veneers or Lumineers. Both are made of thin layers of dental porcelain that are bonded directly to the front of your teeth. The difference is that Lumineers are even thinner than traditional veneers and can often be placed without removing any tooth enamel.

Invisalign Clear Braces The kid in you wants braces to straighten your teeth, but the adult in you cannot contend with the appearance of metal wires and brackets. In that case there are Invisalign Clear Braces. Simply wear the clear plastic aligners as instructed by Dr. Isaacson, and you’ll see a straighter smile in about one year.

Laser Gum Recontouring If you see more gum tissue than tooth when you smile, then a cosmetic gum lift may improve your look. With a soft tissue laser, Dr. Isaacson gently removes excess gum tissue to reveal the tooth underneath.

If you would like to learn more about cosmetic dentistry, call the office of Dr. Joe Isaacson. We are proud to serve patients in Oklahoma City, OK, as well as Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, and Mustang and the surrounding communities.

May 7, 2014

If your teeth are affected by misalignment, gaps, a crossbite, an overbite, or an underbite, you may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. At Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Joe Isaacson and his team help patients just like you achieve straighter teeth and more attractive smiles with an alternative to traditional metal braces: Invisalign clear braces.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners

Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, Invisalign clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable acrylic. The aligners are customized to fit your unique dentition, gradually shifting misaligned teeth into their proper positions over the course of your treatment. Depending on your individual case, you will most likely receive between 20 and 30 sets of customized aligners, each of which you will wear for about two weeks. In addition, you’ll visit Dr. Isaacson’s office every four to six weeks for a brief checkup, just to make sure that your aligners are straightening your teeth as planned.

When your Invisalign treatment is complete and you remove your final set of clear aligners, you’ll have the perfectly balanced, straightened smile you’ve always wanted. Because straighter teeth are easier to clean, you’ll also be doing something great for your overall oral health even as you enjoy the cosmetic benefits Invisalign provides.

The Importance of Treating Bruxism: What You Need to Know About Teeth Grinding

March 5, 2014

Shutterstock Mouth GuardAccording to the American Sleep Association, approximately 10 percent of Americans suffer from bruxism, a common sleep disorder that causes the person affected to unintentionally clench the jaw and grind the teeth during sleep. At Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Isaacson and his team help people with bruxism avoid the many consequences of this subconscious behavior with general dentistry services and customized oral appliances called nightguards.

How Does Bruxism Affect Me?

Individuals with bruxism are typically completely unaware that they are affected until a visit to the dentist reveals damage to the teeth caused by the grinding. For some, other symptoms may arise before a dental examination. Some of the common signs of nighttime teeth grinding include the following:

  • Frequent, unexplained headaches
  • Pain in the muscles of the face
  • Tension and stiffness in neck and/or shoulders
  • Jaw pain
  • Worn teeth and/or dental work
  • A loud grinding noise that disturbs you or your partner
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitivity in gums and teeth

Because bruxism can cause serious damage to your dentition and lead to chronic pain that interferes with your daily life, it is important that you speak to Dr. Isaacson as soon as you notice any signs of the disorder. He may suggest that you use a flexible, comfortable oral appliance that is customized to fit the contours of your mouth. The nightguard is worn while you sleep to prevent the clenching and grinding actions that cause these problems.

Simple Solutions for Teeth Grinding in OKC

If you’ve noticed any of the tell-tale signs of bruxism in your own mouth or in anyone in your family, contact our office in Oklahoma City, OK today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Isaacson. The doctor and his team look forward to helping you conquer your teeth grinding dilemma with a custom-fitted nightguard. We also happily welcome families from nearby communities in Mustang, Yukon, Edmond, Piedmont, and beyond.
