March 15, 2016

But good dental health is about more than brushing, right? Indeed it is. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about dental hygiene from your family dentist in Oklahoma City, Dr. Michael Kirk.


Prevent Oral Cancer – Visit Your Family Dentist in Oklahoma City

December 11, 2015

man relaxed during a regular checkup and oral cancer screening from his family dentist in oklahoma cityAccording to the Oral Cancer Foundation, the most effective way to control oral cancer is to diagnose and treat the disease in its earliest stages. This is likely no surprise. At Grand Dental Studio, our dentists and team are dedicated to offering patients superior preventive dentistry. That starts with great at-home hygiene and regular six month visits. When your dentist is familiar with your oral health history as well as family, environmental, and behavioral risk factors, he or she is more likely to diagnose oral cancer before it causes significant damage. Oral cancer symptoms are subtle and often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed by doctors who are less familiar with patients. Maintaining regular preventive dentistry checkups at Grand Dental Studio is one of the best ways to prevent oral cancer and other detrimental dental health concerns.

Family Dentist, OKC Reminds You to Use Dental Benefits

November 4, 2015

family dentist okcCan you believe it’s already November? This time of year always sneaks up on us. Before you know it we’ll be getting ready to celebrate the start of 2016, and that also means the end of your dental benefits for 2015. That’s right — you’ve paid for those benefits all year long, but any money remaining in your account or within your limit won’t roll over for next year’s dental treatments. Keep reading to learn more about how you can make the most out of your dental insurance before the year’s end, then schedule your appointment with Dr. Michael Kirk, the family dentist in Oklahoma City, before it’s too late!

You’ve Earned Your Dental Benefits: Now Use ‘Em or Lose ‘Em

It’s hard to keep up with the rules of any insurance plan, and it certainly hasn’t gotten any easier lately. That’s why Grand Dental Studio wants to remind you that most dental plans expire at the end of the year. If you’ve got a flex or health savings account, any money that’s left in your name will be forfeited. And as for regular insurance plans, if you haven’t reached your maximum yearly allowance, or the money you’re entitled to each year, you’ll lose that, too. Come 2016, you’ll have to meet another deductible — and because insurance plans are always changing, it could be higher than ever.

It’s simple. Use your 2015 dental benefits before it’s too late — or lose them entirely.

Here are some steps you can take in order to maximize on this year’s dental insurance.

  • Call your insurance provider and find out how much you have left to spend in 2015 — and verify that these benefits are on a calendar year. Very few dental plans work on a fiscal year, but some do.
  • Find out what dental treatments your insurance covers. Most offer only preventive treatments, but sometimes cosmetic services are covered, too.
  • Once you fully understand everything about your 2015 benefits, call to schedule an appointment for you and the whole family at Grand Dental Studio. Your Oklahoma City dentist will help you save money — and you’ll get healthy teeth in return.

Take Advantage of Your Dental Benefits for Your Oral Health

Using your dental benefits before they expire isn’t only good for your budget — it’s also crucial for your oral health. Twice annual visits to the dentist include a dental exam, a thorough cleaning and x-rays, too. These preventive steps are vital to maintaining healthy teeth, and are also usually 100 percent covered by your dental insurance. Catching signs of decay or other problems while they’re small saves you a lot of time, pain and money overall.

Don’t forget that December is the busiest month for Grand Dental Studio, so don’t wait — contact us to schedule your appointment today!

Grand Dental Studio: The Family Dentist Oklahoma City, OK, Trusts

May 7, 2015

465162307Taking care of your family isn’t only a matter of doing a lot, it also requires thought and planning. What’s for dinner tonight? To answer this question, you have to think about what to serve and what to buy at the grocery store. Your son has softball practice tomorrow after school. Better make sure his uniform is clean. This weekend is your daughter’s birthday. Are the plans set and the party favors ready? Just thinking about all there is to do can be tiring!

One thing you don’t have to think about is your family’s dental health. Just schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael K. Kirk or Dr. Janice Henry at Grand Dental Studio—the family dentist Oklahoma City, OK, turns to for a comprehensive menu of general dentistry services—and we’ll take it from there. From exams and cleanings to TMJ therapy and gum disease therapy, we have the treatment that you or a family member need to enjoy a smile that is healthy and attractive.

Exams and Cleanings

The cornerstone of family dentistry is a dental checkup. In keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Kirk encourages his patients to schedule checkups every six months. At these regular visits, Dr. Kirk and his staff of dental hygienists and assistants will clean your teeth and carefully check for any signs of tooth decay. When necessary, we’ll take digital x-rays to find decay that may be hiding in between teeth or just below the surface. In addition, we’ll evaluate the health of your gums and other soft tissue. We’ll conduct an oral cancer screening and check for symptoms of temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder.

Of course, if a problem is discovered, then family dentist Dr. Kirk will want to treat as soon as possible. For example, a small cavity can be repaired with a tooth-colored filling—a much more practical and less expensive option than allowing decay to spread and necessitate more extensive treatment. Likewise, if a tooth is cracked, we can preserve the tooth with a dental crown that is both strong and natural-looking.

Fluoride Treatment and Dental Sealants

For the youngest members of your family, Dr. Kirk will likely recommend a fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Children sometimes have trouble adequately brushing and flossing, so these treatments can be helpful.

Fluoride is a mineral that has been proven to strengthen teeth’s enamel, the first line of defense in the battle against tooth decay. At Grand Dental Studio, we offer fluoride rinses in a number of tasty flavors. With one quick swish around the mouth, your kids’ teeth will have a better chance of staying healthy.

Dental sealants form a protective barrier between teeth and decay-causing bacteria. Food particles and debris can easily hide in deeply grooved and pitted molars. Sealants start out as a liquid that is applied to your children’s back teeth and then dried with a curing light. Once hardened, dental sealants form a solid shield against cavities.

Grand Dental Studio FREE First Visit™ in Oklahoma City, OK

April 7, 2015

454388947Research studies have proven that there is an undeniable link between your oral health and your overall health. The same bacteria that can damage your teeth and gums are able to migrate to other parts of the body, possibly causing health problems that include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, orthopedic implant failure, and pneumonia and kidney disease. Yet, recent statistics show that only some 50 percent of Oklahomans visit the dentist regularly. At Grand Dental Studio in Oklahoma City, OK, we want all Oklahomans to visit the dentist. With this in mind, Dr. Michael Kirk and his staff are offering a FREE First Visit.

At your Grand Dental Studio FREE First Visit, Dr. Kirk, his dental hygienists and dental assistants will, of course, thoroughly clean your teeth and remove any plaque buildup, which is the precursor to periodontal disease. In the early stage, periodontal disease is known as gingivitis, the commonly recognized symptom of which is gum bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth. As the disease advances to become periodontitis, symptoms may include swollen gums, bad breath and loose teeth. You can avoid this condition with the Grand Dental Studio FREE First Visit.

Beyond this thorough cleaning and evaluation of the health of your gums, at your Free First Visit we will carefully examine each of your teeth for any signs of tooth decay.  If found, then Dr. Kirk will likely recommend a tooth-colored filling to repair the tooth and maintain your white smile. Without treatment, a small cavity can grow and necessitate a more complex—and more expensive—therapy, such as root canal, a porcelain onlay or crown for more extensive decay, or even tooth extraction. Unfortunately, a small cavity left untreated can destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth.

Likewise, a cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Your FREE First Visit also includes x-rays, so we will be able to detect any hidden spots of decay or infection below the gum line that would otherwise be unapparent to the naked eye.

Your Partners in Dental Health

At your FREE First Visit, we’ll also help your take better care of your teeth at home by showing you how to properly brush and floss in order for your hygiene routine to have the most beneficial results. For example, did you know that you should be using a soft toothbrush when you brush your teeth and that a thorough brushing lasts at least two full minutes? If you have any questions for us about your oral health, we’ll be glad to answer them at your Grand Dental Studio FREE First Visit.

Schedule an Appointment Today

To schedule your FREE First Visit, call the office of Grand Dental Studio in Oklahoma City, OK. Dr. Kirk and his gentle hygienists are waiting to treat you and your family to our professional and compassionate care. We proudly serve patients from the surrounding communities of Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and other neighboring areas.
