Preventative Care in Midwest City, OK
Would you like a problem-free smile and strong, healthy teeth that serve you for as long as possible? If so, you must make preventative dental care part of your everyday life.
It’s not too hard to figure out that the best way to deal with problems is to stop them from happening in the first place. At Diamond Dental, we love visiting with our patients, but we’d much rather you see us for a cleaning than a root canal!
Start with Cleanings and Exams
Diligent at-home oral hygiene is critical, but this effort must be paired with semi-annual professional cleanings at our Midwest City dental office to be beneficial.
During your cleanings, our hygienist will check your teeth and gums for signs of disease. She then removes plaque and tartar that have collected on your teeth, especially at the gum line. Both are loaded with bacteria and, without treatment, will ultimately lead to decay and gum disease.
Semi-annual exams with Dr. Brent Amaya include a visual exam of your teeth. During the checkup, he carefully examines your teeth and notes any problems or changes since your last visit. If necessary, we will take digital x-rays to identify problems while they are small and easy to treat.
If we find conditions that need attention, we will work with you to develop a plan for treatment to regain your oral health.
Your At-Home Oral Hygiene Routine
Your at-home oral health care routine is essential. We support you with cleanings and exams, but obviously we can’t be with you 24/7, so you need to make sure that you are getting the most out of your brushing and flossing.
Our hygienist will talk to you about your efforts and how you can improve them. If you need a refresher, she will be more than happy to show you the proper ways to brush and floss.
Friendly, Convenient Care
One of the best ways to motivate you to keep appointments is to provide a calming, supportive environment where you feel like a member of the family. Our team will take the time to get to know your family and treat you with the respect and understanding you deserve. You will be pampered with treatments like blankets and neck pillows for your comfort. We want to ensure that every detail of your visit with us is perfect!
We are preferred providers for many insurance companies, including Delta Dental, Guardian, Humana, and many others. If you aren’t insured, we are pleased to offer interest-free CareCredit as well as in-house financing.
