179150393Life 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.

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.
