Dental Health Reminders For Moore OK Area Kids

At OKC Smiles we see many Moore OK area children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.

I am Dr. Mark Phan and I recommend that Oklahoma City parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Oklahoma City sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.

If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to a dental emergency or an accident, my staff and I at OKC Smiles offer many restorative options.

If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be an option. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.

Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.

If a crown or dental implants are required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at OKC Smiles will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.

OKC Smiles has been offering family and cosmetic dentistry to the people of Oklahoma since 1986. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
