We work one-on-one with our patients to deliver a customized preventive approach that yields the greatest benefit.

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.

  • 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

Your Child’s First Dental Visit: The Importance of Early Oral Healthcare & Children’s Dentistry

June 9, 2014

Shutterstock Children Girl ToothbrushYour child’s smile is unique and precious, holding a special place in your heart like nothing else.

Children’s Dentistry for Lifelong Oral Health

Studies have shown that children who visit the dentist regularly beginning at an early age tend to experience better oral health in adulthood. This is largely due to the fact that these initial trips to our office instill a sense of trust and comfort in young children, setting the stage for many happy dental experiences in the future.

Your child’s first dental exam should ideally occur between the ages of two and three years old, when a number of the primary teeth have erupted. During his or her first visit to our practice, your child will receive a thorough examination of all teeth and the gums to ascertain proper development and to check for signs of decay. Throughout this exam, we’ll be sure to take your child’s individual personality and needs into consideration in order to ensure a happy, positive first experience. If we do see signs of a problem, we’ll discuss the appropriate treatment plan with you so that you feel well-informed throughout the process.

Schedule Your Appointment Today

We can’t wait to show you and your little ones what a difference our kind, compassionate, and experienced touch can make in your child’s oral health.

Family Dentistry for Patients from OKC and Beyond

November 9, 2012

Dr. Joe Isaacson is committed to the smiles of adults and children alike. After all, every smile is vulnerable to conditions like gum disease and tooth decay, not just mature smiles. So to help families from Oklahoma City and beyond, we offer great family dentistry services to help all age ranges.

One of the best ways we can provide preventive family dentistry is with an oral exam. During an oral exam, Dr. Isaacson can closely inspect teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. We also look for signs of tooth wear, which might indicate a struggle with bruxism or TMJ dysfunction, and we perform oral cancer screenings. Catching any of these conditions early lets us provide effective care sooner, when it can be more comfortable and less invasive.

With all that in mind, one way we can help you and your family is with dental sealants. This popular family dentistry service uses a thin, plastic coating to physically protect teeth from decay. A similar service – fluoride supplements – draws important minerals and nutrients to teeth, strengthening spots that have softened. With both of these, Dr. Isaacson can help patients, and especially young patients, preserve their oral health.

Other services, like nightguards and athletic mouthguards, can protect teeth in situations where they are vulnerable. And lastly, as part of our dedication to family dentistry, Dr. Isaacson and his team are always happy to recommend products or techniques for better at home care.

Has it been more than two months since you or your child’s last checkup and cleaning? Call Dr. Isaacson’s dental office in Oklahoma City to reserve an appointment. We gladly serve patients from Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, Mustang, and beyond.
