Monica Neely Dentistry Keeps Your Smile Healthy
Preventative care is key to achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. However, in today’s busy world, it can be hard to make time for healthy meals, sleep, and even time to visit the dentist office. But these things are important to ensuring we are healthy, which includes our oral health.
Preventative dentistry goes beyond brushing and flossing your teeth. It’s about ensuring your gums and mouth are healthy as well. If you haven’t always had good oral hygiene, it’s never too late to start taking care of your teeth. A visit to our Northwest OKC dental office can help you regain a healthy smile.
We provide ongoing preventative dentistry services to our patients. At each visit, we’ll make time to review your dental history, oral health, review x-rays, previous treatments, and more to put together a plan to help keep your smile healthy.
In addition to examinations and regular cleaning of your teeth, we provide several treatments and procedures to help encourage healthy teeth and gums:
- Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
- Ultrasonic Cleaning
- Flouride Treatments
- Air Polishing
Preventative dentistry in NW OKC helps prevent diseases and conditions that can impact the healthiness of your teeth. Conditions such as gingivitis, cavities, enamel loss, and periodontitis can all be prevented, and in some instances, reversed. While enamel cannot be regained once it has been lost, it can be slowed, and you can work to preserve the enamel that remains on your teeth with regular check-ups, cleanings, x-rays, and a reliable brushing and flossing routine.
Education and Advice Can Improve Your Oral Health
We’ll provide you with ongoing education and insight into your oral health, advising ways to improve brushing and flossing to prevent conditions from becoming worse. The sooner you start taking care of your teeth and gums, the sooner you’ll notice a difference in the quality of your smile.
If you are concerned about conditions that may flare between visits to our dental office, contact us anytime between Monday and Thursday, 9 am to 5 pm. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can book you an appointment to assess your condition and start a treatment plan as soon as possible.
Everyone Benefits from Preventative Dentistry
Young and old can benefit from preventative dental care. Not only can regular dental visits prevent oral disease and conditions from arising, but it can also contribute to your overall health. Maintaining excellent oral health can prevent more serious medical conditions from occurring such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, and more.
If you have concerns about any of these conditions related to your oral health, don’t hesitate to reach out to our dental office to book an appointment. We can provide you with a treatment plan to help reduce your risk of infection, disease, and more.
There May Be More Going On
It should be noted that not all oral health issues are due to not brushing and flossing on a regular basis. In some instances, people are predisposed to oral health issues due to low birth weight, pre-existing medical conditions, prescription medication, and more. Some people struggle to maintain good oral health their entire lives. Thankfully, innovative and new developments in dentistry can help restore the look and feel of teeth.
Save Yourself Money and Discomfort in the Future
Finally, taking good care of your teeth can not only provide you with a healthier outlook on life, but it can save you money in the long run. Regular visits to Monica Neely Dentistry can provide us with an opportunity to identify early-stage issues related to your dental health. The sooner we diagnose a problem, the sooner we can start treating it, saving you time, money, and maybe most importantly – pain. If you’ve ever had an infection or pain in your mouth, you know that issues don’t usually go away on their own. Even if you don’t have insurance, it is important that you make time to visit a dental office to prevent big bills from piling up if serious conditions arise.
