Research 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.
