Protect Yourself from the Hidden Dangers of Gum Disease with Dr. Isaacson in OKC

February 6, 2014

Shutterstock Healthy GumsWhen you think of gum disease, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Most likely, the words “periodontal disease” evoke images of bleeding gums and even missing teeth. While it is true that untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, this common condition can result in a variety of other lesser known complications. At Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City, OK, we treat our patients with laser periodontal therapy to help maintain not only their oral health, but their overall health as well.

The Mouth-Body Connection

When a patient suffers from periodontal disease, the bacteria that causes inflammation, redness and bleeding can seep into the bloodstream that flows throughout the body. If allowed to progress untreated, the disease can spread to other organs and tissues, wreaking havoc on many of the body’s vital systems. Some complications that have been found to correspond with periodontal disease are:

  • Cancer of the blood and pancreas
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Preterm birth and low birth weight babies (in mothers with gum disease)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Respiratory problems

Fortunately for patients affected by gum disease, treatments like laser periodontal therapy at Joe Isaacson Dental drastically diminish the chances of developing these potentially life-threatening conditions.

Treat One Problem to Avoid Many

If you or someone in your family suffers from periodontal disease, it isn’t too late to seek help and protect yourself from future health problems. Contact our office in Oklahoma City, OK today to schedule your appointment and ask about laser periodontal therapy. This revolutionary technology is more gentler and more effective than traditional gum disease treatment and patients love that they heal faster with less discomfort. We can’t wait to show you how simple it can be to reclaim your smile and your overall health. Dr. Isaacson and his team also serve patients from Edmond, Mustang, Yukon, Piedmont and the surrounding communities.

Completely Revitalize Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers from Dr. Isaacson

January 14, 2014

If you find that you’re consistently dissatisfied with the look of your smile, know that you’re certainly not alone. Millions of American men and women report being unhappy, on some level, with the appearance of their teeth. In our office in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Joe Isaacson specializes in helping patients achieve the dazzling smile of their dreams with dental veneers and he wants to do the same for you.

Why Should I Choose Veneers?

Porcelain veneers and Lumineers, also called instant orthodontics, are extremely thin layers of tooth-colored porcelain material that are custom-fit to your natural teeth. They instantly give the appearance of straight, uniformly spaced, brilliantly white teeth, making it easy to feel comfortable and confident when you smile. Common problems that are easily corrected with the application of porcelain veneers and Lumineers include the following:

  • Chips and cracks in enamel
  • Yellowing, staining or other discoloration that resists professional whitening
  • Misaligned or misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or unevenly spaced
  • Small gaps between teeth in the smile zone

Veneers are cared for in the same way you would your natural teeth – with brushing, flossing and routine scheduled visits to Dr. Isaacson’s office for checkups. They’re durable, long-lasting and can completely transform your smile.

Treat Yourself to a Confident Smile

Whether you’re unhappy with your teeth because they’re discolored, chipped, crooked or any combination thereof, it’s time to reclaim the beautiful smile of your dreams with porcelain veneers. Contact our office today to see what this revolutionary procedure can do for you. We also happily serve patients from Oklahoma City, Piedmont, Mustang, Yukon, Edmond and the surrounding areas.

Dr. Isaacson Can Give the Emergency Care You Need to Preserve Your Oral Health in Trying Times

November 8, 2013

We all knows that accidents happen – often when we least expect it. Your oral health isn’t immune to this principle, either. Even for people who diligently brush and floss, a shocking injury or spot of hidden decay can have sudden, devastating effects if not cared for swiftly. That’s why Dr. Joe Isaacson is sure to provide emergency dental care at his Oklahoma City office. Our dedicated team will always try our best to see your emergency case the same day you call in, whether you’ve completely knocked out a tooth or are experiencing sudden pain in your mouth. Here are some steps for what you should do before you reach us when faced with common dental emergencies:

Knocked-Out Tooth

First, rinse the tooth gently with water; be sure not to pull off any pieces of tissue! If you can, place it back in its socket until you can reach our office. If this simply isn’t possible, placing it in a cup or plastic bag of milk is a viable alternative. Be sure to bring it with you! Once you’re here, we can determine whether reattachment is a viable option.

Broken Tooth

Rinse your tooth with warm water and then hold a cold compress against it. This should help reduce the swelling while you travel to our office.

Bad Toothache

Rinse your mouth as exhaustively as possible and floss all around the tooth that’s in pain; this could help dislodge any debris that may be causing the problem. If the feeling isn’t relieved, call our office.

Losing a Temporary Crown

Did you lose it? If not, dry your tooth, apply a small amount of toothpaste to the crown, and place it back in its original spot. Then, call our office so that we can schedule a time for you to come in; then, we can reattach it more effectively.

Invisalign Can Help Straighten Your Smile and Restore Your Self-Confidence in Oklahoma City

July 9, 2013

For adults with crooked teeth or unsightly gaps, it can feel like they’ve missed their chance to achieve a beautifully straight smile. After all, at that point in your life, you’ve surely got a professional image to be thinking about – the last thing you want is to have to suffer through years of clunky, metal braces. Thankfully, Dr. Isaacson offers a solution that’s truly the best of both worlds here in Oklahoma City: Invisalign clear braces. With the help of this transformative cosmetic treatment, you can achieve straight teeth quickly and seamlessly.

Countless Benefits, One Easy Solution

Most adult patients with mild to moderate misalignments in their bite are candidates for Invisalign, and the process couldn’t be simpler – after taking detailed measurements of your mouth, we’ll provide you a set of custom-made aligners, each one representing a different stage of your teeth as they move into their proper alignment. All you have to do is wear them for the appropriate amount of time before switching to the next in the set, and you’ll start to see changes in your smile in no time!

There are several advantages to undergoing Invisalign treatment, including:

  • Invisibility – thanks to the acrylic your new aligners are made of, hardly anyone will be able to tell that you’re receiving orthodontic treatment.
  • Removability – you don’t have to make any changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine; instead, simply remove the aligner when the situation calls for it!
  • Speed – while traditional braces can take multiple years to produce lasting effects, Invisalign treatment usually completes in as little as 12-18 months.

Don’t hold yourself back from pursuing the smile you’ve always wanted to see in the mirror – instead, choose Invisalign! Contact our Oklahoma City office to learn more, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Isaacson Can Help You Banish Bad Breath for Good

June 4, 2013

Simply put, bad breath is embarrassing. Not only does it hinder your enthusiasm and confidence when you’re in social and professional settings, it can also be an indicator of more serious oral health problems, such as gum disease or severe cavities. In you suffer from this common malady, come visit Dr. Isaacson at his dental practice in Oklahoma City – our team will be happy to inspect your mouth and gums during a check-up and offer you methods to effectively combat the presence of bad breath. In the meantime, here are some helpful tips:

  • Bad breath (also referred to as halitosis) is caused by foul-smelling bacteria, which most commonly found on the back on the tongue, which can be hard to reach with a regular toothbrush. Investing in a tongue scraper, as well as routinely brushing and flossing, will go a long way in helping keep bad breath at bay. Attending regular check-ups is a big help as well!
  • Illnesses that affect other parts of your body can also contribute to the presence of bad breath, such as gastrointestinal issues, lung disease, sinus infections, diabetes, and liver or kidney problems. If you suffer from any of these conditions, it may be worthwhile to ask Dr. Isaacson and his team about the state of your breath at your next check-up.
  • Using an anti-bacterial mouthwash daily can help add an extra layer of protection against stubborn germs.
  • Likewise, chewing sugarless gum can help increase the production of saliva, which is a natural cleanser.
  • While having bad breath every once in a while is normal, chronic bad breath should be checked immediately with your dentist; there may be a deeper problem at work.

Contact our Oklahoma City office today to schedule an appointment with our friendly dental team! We can’t wait to give you and your family a reason to smile. We also welcome patients from all over the surrounding OKC areas, such as Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, Mustang, and beyond.

Guard Against Oral Cancer with Help from Dr. Isaacson in Oklahoma City

April 22, 2013

Did you know that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month? When faced with so many other common oral health problems, such as cavities, structural cracks, or gum disease, it can be easy to forget that oral cancer is a threat as well. The statistics are shocking, though – This year, tens of thousands of people will be diagnosed with the disease, and half of them won’t live beyond five more years. That’s why Dr. Isaacson and his dental team are committed to thoroughly checking your mouth for signs of oral cancer every time you come in for a check-up at our Oklahoma City office. In addition, here are possible symptoms that you can look for at home:

  • Flat, white or red spots or sores in the mouth that are painless
  • A sudden color change in your oral tissue
  • A sore in your mouth that bleeds and doesn’t show signs of healing
  • An eroded area, lump, or crusty spot in the mouth
  • Excessive pain, tenderness, or numbers in the mouth or lips

However, remember that your dentist should always be your first line of defense against oral cancer. While oral cancer may be incredibly destructive in its more advanced stages, patients whose symptoms are noticed by a professional early on before the disease has progressed have a much higher chance of being treated successfully. By attending a routine check-up with Dr. Isaacson once every six months, you’ll provide our team with the opportunity to keep a close eye on your teeth and gums and spot any suspicious areas.

Here in Oklahoma City, our team is committed to providing you and your family with personalized dental care that treats problems quickly and effectively. Contact us today to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions about oral cancer. We also see patients from the surrounding OKC areas, such as Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, Mustang, and beyond.

Keep Smiles of All Sizes Happy and Healthy with Family Dentistry from Dr. Isaacson

March 22, 2013

At its core, family dentistry isn’t just one specific service or treatment – it’s a way of life for dental practices! Here in Oklahoma City, Dr. Isaacson and his staff understand that it can be frustrating for families, especially those including small children, to keep up with multiple dentists and specialists all over town in order to ensure that everyone gets the dental care they need. By offering family dentistry, we’re letting you know that we can provide you with all of those thorough and personalized services you and your loved ones need in just one convenient location, saving you valuable time and money. Our office enjoys helping smiles of all ages stay happy and healthy for years to come!

Just like with any other field of dentistry, family dentistry begins with optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that you attend a routine oral health check-up and cleaning twice a year, and Dr. Isaacson couldn’t agree more! Our team will work hard to help you avoid common dental problems such as injury and decay, and we can instruct patients of all ages (especially children) how to properly brush and floss their teeth on a day-to-day basis.

However, family dentistry goes beyond just routine check-ups. We offer preventive services that can benefit both young and old smiles, including:

  • Dental sealants and fluoride supplements – these tools are perfect for younger children whose permanent teeth are only just coming in by helping to strengthen their natural enamel and add extra protection against decay.
  • Athletic mouthguards – if you or your child is an athlete, these custom made oral appliances will keep pearly whites protected against injury while they’re out on the field.
  • Nightguards – both children and adults can grind their teeth unknowingly. In order to prevent unnecessary wear, we can create a piece to wear during sleep that will protect smiles from damage.

Don’t keep running all over town any longer – Dr. Isaacson is committed to providing you and your loved ones with thorough, personalized care that puts your comfort first each and every time. Call our Oklahoma City office today to schedule a family dentistry appointment. We also are happy to see patients from surrounding OKC areas, including Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, Mustang, and beyond.
