At South Tulsa Smiles, we believe in delivering the best overall dental experience to our customers. We believe that paying for your dentistry shouldn’t just be about your teeth but also your health. Rather than rushing patients in and out of our office, our South Tulsa Smiles team prioritizes your experience with a spa-like, relaxing environment. We are dedicated to helping our patients feel cared for and comfortable. We offer comfortable and plush dental chairs rather than having our patients sit on the usual uncomfy dental chairs. Our office believes in our clients’ ultimate relaxation, including those who experience anxiety or panic at the dentist’s office. We are the most patient-friendly office for overcoming the common fear of visiting the dentist’s office. We offer nitrous or sedation when getting your teeth cleaned if that would help you during your visit. We will help make you comfortable, relaxed and assist you in whatever ways our office is able. The result will be the cleanest smile delivered most comfortably.
Dental cleanings and checkups are imperative when it comes to the health of your teeth. You should receive at least two dental cleanings and checkups per year. These trips to our office are crucial for setting you up for good oral health and identifying any possible dental issues while they are in earlier stages.
Don’t wait! Call our South Tulsa Smiles office today to schedule your checkup and cleaning.
Our dental checkups are comfortable, and Dr. Fields will gently check over your teeth to ensure tooth decay, disease in the gums, or enamel wear is not a problem. Our team will then use diagnostic tools to assess the unseen tissues in your mouth, like the root of your teeth. Diagnostic imaging can show irregularities that may need a specialist’s to investigate further. Often, we refer patients to an orthodontist or another dental specialist. It’s very common for people to develop dental problems like inflamed or irritated gums or other common issues. Many times, these conditions develop due to diet and poor oral hygiene practices. Regular dental checkups can help your dentist identify these problems before they advance and sometimes prevent them from happening at all.
Dental cleanings are vital for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. This especially true since many patients have trouble reaching the back of their teeth when brushing or flossing. Dental cleanings are non-invasive for our team to help preserve and even improve gum health. Dental cleanings are also essential to manage tartar and any plaque accumulation on your teeth. You may think that since you brush your teeth several times a day, you don’t need a dental cleaning, but you do! You still have built-up plaque and tartar on your teeth that can’t be removed by daily brushing or flossing. We will take care of this plaque at your dental cleaning when removed with our professional-grade dental instruments.
At South Tulsa Smiles, we take preventative care very seriously. Our goal is to ensure you don’t develop oral disease and help you take care of it if you do it in the best way. Prevention does start with patients exercising good oral hygiene and maintaining a healthy diet. Coming in for regular checkups is also a crucial preventative step. When it comes to helping your teeth get healthier, we want to help. Our office can offer various treatments to strengthen your teeth and limit tooth decay or injuries that are more prone to weaker teeth. Two of the most popular of these treatments are explored below:
Minerals make up the substance of tooth enamel. Strong acid can strip these minerals away, thus stripping the strength of your teeth out. Fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral, is a proven enamel strengthener. It does this by attracting more minerals to your teeth and reinforcing the strength of your teeth. Having strong enamel is imperative to having healthy and strong teeth. Fluoride treatments are non-invasive and typically don’t take long.
Dental sealants are another great way to take precautions against weakening teeth. These sealants are made up of disease-resistant materials and are applied over your teeth and then hardened. These sealant shields then more protect the teeth’ surfaces, and it will be harder for harmful bacteria to get to your teeth.
