A healthy smile starts right here! Our dental exam utilizes top notch equipment to ensure that you have the best information possible. Our dentist will talk to you about a customized dental treatment plan so that you have a healthy smile and a healthy mouth.
We understand that the dental experience can make you nervous and anxious. We want to give you the best experience possible. So here is what you can expect from Healthy Smiles during your check up:
A conversation with your dentist to put you at ease and to answer any questions that you may have, regarding your dental experience, teeth, gums, mouth, or really anything dental related – please ask us questions!
X-rays, if necessary, to see exactly where your teeth are at or to look at any problem areas that you may be having.
A customized treatment plan, from the dentist so that you know the pathway to maintain a healthy smile.
We want to ensure that your appointments and hygiene stay consistent and are maintained. After all, you have one smile!
What exactly is a dental bridge?
According to the American Dental Association a dental bridge is to create a custom-made tooth or teeth that will fill the space where teeth are missing.
The whole idea of getting a bridge is to help restore your bite and to keep the natural shape of your face. This is something that most of our patients never think about.
There are different types of dental bridges that you have access to with Healthy Smiles. These types are a fixed bridge or implant-supported. The dentist will inspect your mouth to see what the best option for you is.
We will teach you how to care for your dental bridge and floss under the bridge. This time we spend to educate our patients is exactly what sets us apart from everyone else.
The idea with dental implants is to restore your smile! They should look, feel, and function like natural teeth. There are many dental offices that have knock-offs; at Healthy Smiles we have the best options for you. At your first consultation, the dentist will use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that we get an accurate scan of your mouth. We want to ensure that you have the right type of dental implant for your mouth.
Many patients will need at least one filling in their lifetime. This is completely normal. It does not mean that you are a terrible person or that you never take care of your teeth. Again, it is normal. The idea with a filling is to treat cavities, broken teeth, or teeth that have simply worn down over time by their use. Here at Healthy Smiles we use metal free fillings so there are no reactions to possible metal allergies. 9 out of 10 metal fillings replaced have undetected decay present, as well as some with allergic responses present such as swollen or bleeding gums. If you have any questions or concerns about metal allergies, we have the right alternative to metal for you and your overall health!
Sometimes a tooth extraction is something that has to take place. At Healthy Smiles the dentist and the team will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before, during, and after the extraction. If you are feeling nervous or anxious about a tooth extraction, ensure that you let the team know. We are here to help!
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile. They say a smile is worth a thousand words; so we want to make sure that you feel confident and excited about the dentistry cosmetic options that we provide. We offer different types of cosmetic options that include veneers, teeth whitening services, and SureSmile (teeth aligner) to ensure you have the best smile. Give us a call and chat with our team to see what options we can provide for you and what will fit you best.
SAME DAY DENTAL CROWNS
A dental crown is the “cap” that covers the tooth. It should feel normal, fit, and function just like a normal tooth. Because 75% of women are allergic to base metals, Healthy Smiles offers same-day metal-free crowns. No more worry about metal reactions. No more worry about your temporary crown lasting until you have to come back. No more second appointment. Your time is important to us!
The cost of the crown and what insurance can and will cover should definitely be a point of conversation with the Healthy Smiles team.
There is a difference between functional orthodontics and traditional orthodontics. The idea of functional orthodontics is to reposition your jaws to better position your teeth and to hold your facial profile in a natural way. This is a different approach to teeth straightening because we want to look at the original cause and not just start shifting and moving teeth. This can potentially influence the airways for breathing issues and/or can help with chronic jaw pain. Give us a call and let us set up a consultation with you to see if this is a good fit for you.
Sleep disordered breathing has many effects, not only on your oral health and development but on your overall health. There are many comorbidities (such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or hormone imbalances, just to name a few) that are caused by sleep disordered breathing. Often this is thought of as snoring which can often progress to sleep apnea. With either myofunctional therapy or oral appliances, and sometimes a combination of both, we can help you (and most likely your bed partner) achieve a more peaceful night’s sleep. A sleep assessment is part of our standard patient care so that we are not leaving any part of your overall health out of your oral health.
A healthy sleep is a healthy you. We have trained sleep coordinators on staff to assist in your sleep needs.
Did you know that teeth are meant to last a lifetime? Of course you did! But sometimes a tooth can become diseased or injured. A root canal is the way to save the tooth. If you need to have a root canal just know that our Healthy Smiles team is here to assist you. We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible before, during, and after your root canal. Our dentist will educate on what the steps will be to keep the area cleaned.
At Healthy Smiles your comfort is the first thing that we care about. Our oral surgeries treat a wide range of conditions and disease, such as: dental treatments, tooth loss, wisdom teeth removal, endodontal disease, teeth extraction, jaw/mouth/teeth injuries, etc. Talk with our dentist about your pain management options to ensure that we have the best treatment available for you.
EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE
There are times in our life where an emergency just happens. We don’t want them to happen, but sometimes they are inevitable. If you are a Healthy Smiles patient and feel that you are having a dental emergency give us a call!
This emergency can consist of a toothache, extreme pain, a knocked-out tooth, broken, cracked, or chipped tooth, etc. Call our team if you are having any of these issues or send us a message on Facebook at Healthy Smiles Enid. We want to help alleviate this pain that you are having as much as possible.
