Filed under: Uncategorized — Grand Dental Studio @ 4:35 pm

Reclaim your youthful appearance with a new smile from your cosmetic dentist in Oklahoma City.A few years ago, the only reason that a person would visit the dentist was to either get preventative care or to get care to restore their teeth after damage or after an accident. Some people would get cosmetic procedures, but these were typically famous individuals. They would usually get these procedures because they had some special occasion to attend. These days, as more attention is being put on the aesthetics of a person’s teeth, more and more people are opting to take advantage of cosmetic dentistry services. There are so many benefits that can come from undergoing these treatments.

We Take Special Care of Seniors

July 22, 2015

Gene Shultz, 92 years old, and Jane Shultz, 86 years old, have been patients for 15 years.

Gene Shultz, 92 years old, and Jane Shultz, 86 years old, have been patients for 15 years.

The older we get, dental issues can increase or worsen. It’s no secret the mouth loses its strength as the years go by, so it’s vital to be aware of conditions associated with aging that can impact oral health. At Grand Dental Studio, Oklahoma City dentist Dr. Michael Kirk and his caring staff offer dental services specially tailored for senior patients. Maintaining a healthy mouth, teeth and gums, no matter what age, is very important. Our office in Oklahoma City, OK is here to help!

Senior Care: Why?

Did you know only roughly 2% of older Americans have dental insurance? That means 98% of our senior population may be at risk of going without any dental treatment. And the older the person. The more likely they are to need complete care for a multitude of reasons. We can’t let our older citizens’ oral care fall by the wayside. It can be hard for seniors to practice dental hygiene, especially when some can’t brush their teeth or floss because of arthritis. Memory loss can also factor in as well. Over time, there are many changes that occur in the mouth.

It’s these gradual changes that can put a senior’s health at risk. They include:

  • Dry Mouth – a result of decreased saliva flow, medicinal effects, or certain diseases.
  • Reduced sense of taste – a result of disease, medicines, and denture wear.
  • Darker teeth – Smoking and excessive coffee/cola intake can darken enamel.
  • Gum disease – as the leading cause of tooth loss, it’s the result of poor dental hygiene, smoking/chewing tobacco, poor eating habits and certain diseases.
  • Root decay – Occurs when gum tissues retreat from the tooth.

Your older loved ones will receive fantastic dental care from our staff. A gentle touch is what seniors deserve during their dental care, and that’s where we excel!

A Comfortable Setting

Our office is designed to bring our patients all the comforts of home. Our furniture is super comfortable and relaxing. From the moment you walk in the door, our staff will make you feel at home with friendly service that goes above and beyond anything you expect. A dental appointment can be a nerve-racking experience for some, that’s why we answer all questions and guide everyone through their procedure.

If you thought an appointment couldn’t get any more relaxing, just wait until our Zen Garden spoils your eyes with its ornate beauty. Every patient can enjoy the soothing sights of the lovely garden while they receive treatment. The garden sparkles and changes with the seasons! It truly is a sight to behold. When it comes to pampering our patients, we take the cake. Our mission always has been and always will be to provide general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and implant dentistry in a way that we hope changes a patient’s perception of oral healthcare.

Replace Missing Teeth and Restore Your Natural Smile with New Dental Implants in OKC

March 2, 2015

170080021Teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, for many of us, this just isn’t possible. Problems with gum disease, decay, and injury can all lead to adult tooth loss. But this doesn’t mean you have to give up on having a full and healthy smile. By replacing missing teeth with new dental implants from the Grand Dental Studio, you can improve your overall appearance and preserve your long term health. Schedule your personalized dental implants consultation appointment with Dr. Kirk today. Grand Dental Studio is the premier implant dentistry of Oklahoma City, now proudly renewing smiles daily throughout OKC, Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and the surrounding communities.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are actually small metal posts that can be surgically positioned in the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they can be used to securely mount replacement teeth like dental crowns or dentures. Because dental implants can fully fuse with your jawbone, they provide permanent and stable support for artificial teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants Instead of Other Restorative Methods?

Dentures and dental bridges mounted to dental implants won’t slip or shift and can improve both eating and speaking abilities. Dental implant secured tooth replacements also feel more natural than conventional dental bridges and dentures. For many patients, traditional bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable enough for daily support, and often cause soreness and gagging. Traditional bridges must be attached to healthy teeth on either side of the space left by a missing tooth. With dental implants no adjacent teeth are reduced or made vulnerable to hold your new tooth in place. Additionally, dental implants are the only restorative option which can stop tooth loss related bone loss and preserve your youthful facial features.

Two Types of Dental Implants

There are two main types of dental implants, full sized and mini implants. For patients who lack the minimum bone density requirements to receive full dental implants, mini dental implants are a great alternative.

  • Full Dental Implants are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a secondary surgery is needed to connect an abutment post before an artificial tooth replacement can be attached.
  • Mini Dental Implants consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame fuses to the jawbone. Abutment posts, which are already attached to the frame, protrude through the gums so that artificial teeth can then be mounted.

OKC Dental Implants Consultations

For many patients, tooth loss creates problem after problem after problem. However, many of these problems can be resolved with new dental implants. New dental implants will allow you to look and feel better, regain confidence, and improve your overall quality of life. Schedule a dental implants consultation appointment with Dr. Kirk today to get started. Grand Dental Studio is the leading Oklahoma City implant dentistry, now delivering quality care daily throughout OKC, Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and neighboring areas.

GDS_html_Feb15Do you love your smile?

How Does Invisalign Work?

Consultation

  • Invisalign uses a series of removable, custom, clear plastic aligners to incrementally reposition your teeth.
  • The Invisalign method requires a series of dental impressions to be taken to first determine the optimal position of your teeth. These impressions and photographs can be taken during your initial consultation.
  • Dr. Kirk will create a 3D digital projection of how your teeth could be realigned in stages. This projection forms the basis for developing a series of custom fabricated clear aligners which can accomplish that movement.

Fabrication

  • Invisalign aligners are manufactured at the Invisalign dental labs using stat-of-the-art computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology.
  • The finished aligners are then sent to Dr. Kirk, who will dispense them in groups of one or two at a time during regular progress monitoring appointments (about once every four to six weeks).

Treatment

  • Each aligner must be worn in its specific order for about two weeks, for at least 20 hours per day. Your teeth will be moved in increments of about .25 millimeters to .33 millimeters at a time.
  • Your aligners will be easily removable for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or for special occasions.
  • A typical Invisalign treatment requires 20 to 30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth, with most treatments taking no longer that a year. However, treatment times do vary from patient to patient.

Remember, our $500 off Invisalign clear braces is a limited time offer, so schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Kirk today. Grand Dental Studio is the leading orthodontics destination of Oklahoma City, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout OKC, Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and neighboring areas.

Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month! Schedule Your Child’s Dental Checkup Appointment Today

February 2, 2015

159161486Has your child seen a dentist lately? Sometimes, parents are confused by dental health recommendations for children, but as soon as your child’s first tooth appears, it’s time to schedule a children’s dental visit. Every February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of children’s oral health. Celebrate your child’s dental health and make an appointment with Dr. Kirk for your child’s next dental checkup today. Dr. Kirk is a pediatric dentistry expert. Grand Dental Studio delivers quality pediatric dental care daily throughout Oklahoma City, OK, Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and the surrounding communities.

What Is Children’s Dental Health Month All About?

The month-long national observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, educators, and families to promote the benefits of good oral health for children, their caregivers, teachers, and others. This year’s theme is centered on defeating “Monster Mouth” and features the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck, along with their next-door neighbors, Den and Gen Smiley and K-9 the dog.  They are all fighting to defeat “Plaqster the Monster” for good oral health.  Older children and teens can also benefit from the messages demonstrating effective ways to defeat monster mouth and maintain good oral health by always brushing, flossing, rinsing, and choosing healthy snacks.  Resources are provided to help speakers, teachers, and others communicate the importance of oral hygiene to children of all ages.

How to Prepare Your Child for Their Next Dental Checkup

  • First, consider making a morning appointment when children tend to be more rested and cooperative.
  • Keep any dental anxiety or concerns you have to yourself. Children can pick up on your emotions, so always emphasize the fun and positive.
  • Never use a dental visit as a punishment or threat.
  • Never bribe your child with cavity causing treats.
  • Talk with your child about visiting the dentist and role play so they can get used to the idea early on.

Oklahoma City Children’s Dental Checkup Appointments

Developing good oral hygiene habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental checkups will ensure your child gets a head start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Celebrate the New Year with a Straighter Smile

January 6, 2014

shutterstock_140713165If you are a person who suffers from gapped, misaligned teeth or have an off bite, you may think there is no help. You do not want to go through the embarrassment of traditional metal braces, and you are worried of the pain associated with straightening your teeth.  You are in luck, because at Grand Dental Studio, our very experienced and talented dentists will be able to give you the smile you have always wanted with Invisalign Clear Braces!

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign gives you the discretion you want by being barely, if at all, visible on your teeth. Being FDA approved, there is no doubt Invisalign is a great option for anyone who wants to have their teeth corrected. The entire process involves a series of aligners that are made just for you so it fits your mouth perfectly. Being able to gently straighten your teeth, each aligner you receive will be a new stage in your straightening process, so no aligner is alike.

You should wear each aligner for two weeks, 22 hours a day in order to the most advantageous results.  The whole process should take between 12-18 months, and at the end, you’re left with nothing but a beautiful, even smile you can be proud of!

Our Oklahoma City dental office is conveniently located for patients who live or work in the greater OKC area.
