Routine Exams and Cleanings
We provide thorough cleanings and examinations to further maintain our patients’ wellbeing. Cleanings at our office are detailed and gentle, to effectively clean areas of teeth and gums that cannot be reached when brushing and flossing at home. Our Oklahoma City dentist polishes the front and chewing surfaces of the teeth, making it difficult for bacteria to accumulate between check-ups.
Exams provided by our practice demonstrate to patients how preventive care can be customized to their unique needs. During these visits, we also determine the current state of your oral health and check for early signs of oral cancer or other conditions that detriment long term wellness.
Fluoride and Dental Sealants
Key to preventive dental care is the use of fluoride. Fluoride is applied after cleanings to strengthen healthy enamel and protect against decay.
In addition to fluoride washes we provide non-invasive prevention through dental sealants. These are applied to the top of the molars after they have been cleaned. Sealants are then hardened, making it difficult for decay to develop on back teeth with deep grooves that trap food particles.
