The most basic of the general dentistry services offered at our Oklahoma City office is biannual cleanings and examinations. These twice-yearly visits give us an opportunity to thoroughly clean your teeth – even below the gum line – and allow Dr. Bass to detect early warning signs of oral health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay.
If you are ready to schedule your next routine dental appointment, please contact Terry Bass, DDS online or by calling (405) 622-8996 today. Dr. Bass welcomes patients from Edmond, Lawton, Norman, and surrounding areas at our Oklahoma City location.
Early Detection is Essential
Oral health issues are progressive, often quickly getting worse when left undetected. Even seemingly minor issues like tooth decay can turn into large problems when ignored, making it important that you maintain routine office visits for prompt diagnoses and treatment.
Failure to treat common oral health issues can result in problems including:
- Pain and sensitivity
- Tooth loss
- Chronic bad breath
- Severe tooth discoloration
What’s more, untreated gum disease has been shown to complicate blood sugar regulation and increase risks for heart attack, respiratory illness, kidney failure, and a host of other systemic diseases. The best way to avoid increased risks for these and other complications is by identifying early warning signs of oral health issues and treating them before they get out of hand.
