If it’s time for your routine professional cleaning and dental exam, or you’ve fallen a little behind, we at Smiles of Tulsa are here to help. Our expert and friendly staff have the skills and tools necessary to clean what you might not be able to reach home. We’ll also provide a thorough examination to detect any possible oral health issues. These regular office visits may not be glamorous, but they’re one of the best practices we have to keep your smile at its healthiest and most beautiful.

Professional Cleanings

Professional cleanings performed by our registered dental hygienists are one of the simplest and most effective measures we have to protect and defend your oral health. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth at home, you’re still likely to miss a few things. On any given day, plaque and tartar are collecting on your teeth. Plaque is a sticky, invisible film that may inflame your gums, which could be the first sign of gingivitis. Tartar, or calculus, is hardened plaque that’s been allowed to collect on teeth, and it must be removed by professionals. Left unattended, plaque and tartar could develop into gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.

Professional cleanings done at regular intervals prescribed by Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS, based on your oral health needs, are the best defense we have against gum disease and other oral health concerns. It’s important to preserve your natural teeth, ideally for your lifetime. Cleanings will also remove stains that aren’t otherwise removed by your regular brushing and flossing. We may prescribe deep cleanings for patients who present signs of gum disease or have had previous periodontal treatments.

Dental Exams

After your cleanings, you can expect to see Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS for a comprehensive dental examination. The exam will usually include an digital X-ray. We use X-rays to help us detect what we can’t see right away, like decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS will also check for signs of oral cancer by examining your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums. We’ll evaluate any gum disease, tooth decay, and check on the status of any restorations such as fillings or crowns you may already have.

Consistent visits for cleanings and exams, including an oral cancer screening, help us detect problems during their early stages when they are most treatable. Left unattended, small concerns like gingivitis can become worse, and will eventually require more extensive, and more expensive, dental work to repair. Usually, we recommend our patients schedule their routine cleanings and exams twice a year, about every six months. Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS may suggest lengthening the time between visits if you have excellent oral health or may recommend more frequent visits if you are at higher risk for dental issues. High-risk patients include:
•  Smokers
•  Patients who have a history of cavities and plaque build-up
•  Patients with weakened immune systems
•  Patients with gum disease
•  Diabetics
•  Pregnant women
