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.

Best Oklahoma City Invisalign Clear Braces

Why Invisalign

While many people choose to live with crooked teeth thinking the only adverse effect is esthetic, it’s important to note that there are additional health concerns to consider as well. A crooked or misaligned bite places uneven pressure on your teeth and jaw making you more susceptible to damaging the teeth that take extra wear and tear, and an increased potential to develop TMJ disorder. No matter what your age or lifestyle, it is important to have an aligned bite that will help you maintain dental health for life.

Invisalign clear braces offer a teeth straightening option without the hassle of traditional braces. When you want to create a better smile, it seems irrational to make your smile worse before it gets better. Traditional braces are bulky, painful, and a metallic smile doesn’t help anyone to look or feel their best. Traditional braces also limit the types of food you can eat, and require extensive oral hygiene.

Invisalign is a great option if you want to share your best smile from the first day of treatment. The clear, custom alignment trays gently shift your teeth, and no one will even notice. The alignment trays are switched out for new ones every few weeks until your teeth are straight. No orthodontic visits for tightening wires. In addition to fewer dental visits most patients report experiencing less discomfort with Invisalign when compared to traditional braces. Because Invisalign is removable, you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods while you correct your bite. Simply remove your correcting tray during meals, and replace after.

For More Information

If you’ve considered traditional braces, but don’t want a mouth full of metal Invisalign clear braces may be for you. Our relaxing, spa like office is conveniently located in the heart of Oklahoma City 73118, but you will feel like you just spent a day on the beach. Call to schedule an appointment today. We welcome patients form Oklahoma City and surrounding areas including Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, and Nichols Hills.

How Does Invisalign Work?


  • 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.


  • 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).


  • 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.

Top 3 Reasons to Maximize Your Dental Insurance Benefits Before December 31st!

October 27, 2014

5138847572014 is drawing to a close and before you know it, the New Year will be upon us. This time of year always seems to fly by, especially if you’re busy planning for the holidays. At Grand Dental Studio in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Michael K. Kirk would like to take this opportunity to offer an important reminder regarding dental insurance benefits, a topic that may not necessarily be something at the forefront of your mind toward the end of the year. Today, we’d like to talk about the top three reasons that your dental benefits should be a subject of real priority, particularly during the last few months of 2014.

Maximizing Your Dental Benefits in OKC

Everyone wants to make the most of their hard-earned money when seeking healthcare, and getting the dental treatment you need and deserve should be no different. The following factors are among the important reasons to utilize your dental benefits before December 31st.

  1. Yearly maximum allowed. This is the maximum amount of coverage that is offered by your plan over the course of a year. If you only utilize a small portion of this coverage and your plan resets on January 1st, any remaining benefits are forfeited.
  2. Keep your deductible in mind. A deductible is an amount that a patient is required to pay out of pocket before his or her dental benefits begin to cover the cost of treatment. After the deductible requirement has been fulfilled, your coverage kicks in, allowing you to fully utilize your benefits. Unfortunately, many patients end up paying their deductible and then never follow up with their dentist; this means that their benefits go unused for the remainder of the year. The amount of a deductible varies from plan to plan and between employers, so ask your human resources department for more information if you are unsure about this cost.
  3. Make your monthly premiums count. If any portion of your monthly income is going toward payment for a dental insurance plan, it only stands to reason that you should be taking full advantage of your benefits. Make your dental coverage work for you rather than against your wallet.

Getting the most from your dental benefit plan isn’t only about making sure you get your money’s worth. Twice yearly visits to our OKC dental office help keep your teeth and gums healthy, which can actually protect your overall physical health as well. Major health concerns like heart disease and even some kinds of cancer have been linked to poor periodontal health, so be sure to schedule your six month dental checkup with Dr. Kirk before year’s end.

Visit Your OKC Dentist Today

The majority of dental benefit plans follow a calendar year schedule, which means that on January 1st, your benefits reset. If you haven’t utilized your dental benefits to their fullest by now, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kirk at Grand Dental Studio. Contact us today to reserve your visit with our caring, experienced team in Oklahoma City, OK. Our state-of-the-art dental practice proudly serves families from throughout OKC and the surrounding areas, including Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and beyond.

Plastic in Your Toothpaste? Understanding Microbeads with Dr. Kirk in OKC

September 22, 2014

469667769Have you ever noticed the tiny blue, green, or red particles in your toothpaste? Many toothpaste brands on the market today include these little colored dots, but what are they and what function do they serve? At Grand Dental Studio in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Michael K. Kirk and his team emphasize the importance of patient education in all aspects of oral health, and today we’d like to cover the recently popular subject of microbeads in toothpaste.

What are Microbeads in Toothpaste?

Microbeads are tiny spheres of a colored plastic called polyethylene. They are added to many toothpaste brands for aesthetic reasons, and they do not offer any oral health benefit. Crest, a widely loved toothpaste brand, has recently decided to remove microbeads from their toothpastes after complaints from dentists from across the country. Some states have already made moves to ban microbeads from other products, including body wash, facial cleansers, and shampoos. Environmental concerns have also surfaced as microbeads have been found in soil and in multiple bodies of fresh water.

Are Microbeads Dangerous?

Proctor & Gamble, the manufacturer of Crest toothpaste, states that microbeads are completely safe, but many dentists still disagree. The tiny plastic beads have been found embedded in their patients’ gums, a problem that can potentially lead to irritation and inflammation of the gingival pockets. This can serve as the ideal breeding environment for the harmful bacteria that cause gum disease.

At Grand Dental Studio, our doctor recommends that patients who are concerned about microbeads simply switch to regular, white toothpaste without the colorful additives. Choose a toothpaste that bears the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance to ensure that the product has been properly tested and proven effective. As always, if you have any questions regarding your home hygiene routine, Dr. Kirk and his team are happy to help.

Contact us today to schedule your appointment, and discover the difference that our commitment to patient satisfaction can make in your next dental experience. Our Oklahoma City, OK office proudly serves patients from throughout the surrounding areas as well, including Nichols Hills, Moore, Midwest City, Edmond, Deer Creek, Yukon, and the greater OKC area.
