CHECK-UPS, CLEANINGS AND DIGITAL DENTAL X-RAYS
The Staff at Nowlin Dental Clinic wants to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy with regular cleanings. Studies have shown that healthy gums are essential to a healthy body. One of our Dentists will perform a comprehensive examination using digital x-rays at this appointment also. You will be evaluated for oral cancer, decay, TMJ problems, gum disease, and treatment options will be discussed.
DENTAL CROWNS (CAPS)
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely covers a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. Our crowns are bonded to the tooth using top-of-the-line dental cements. Many of our crowns can be delivered to the patient just hours after the initial preparation appointment. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. All of our crowns are made locally by National Board Certified Dental Technician Jerry Dry, owner of Southwestern Dental Laboratory, who has over 30 years of experience in porcelain artistry.
“Root canal” may be two of the scariest words in the English language. It conjures up images of a long painful dental appointment. When we ask people if they know what a root canal is, the standard answer is “No, but I’ve heard it’s painful.” Well, good news! Today with our new Wave One technology, root canal treatment is painless and can be accomplished in only one visit. Because root canals are in great demand, we have had extensive training in the new root canal techniques and equipment. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. The teeth on either side of the space are covered with crowns and a new tooth is suspended between them. Bridges can be beneficial not only in replacing a missing tooth, but also in providing complete coverage and restoration to adjacent teeth as well.
TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth-colored fillings have always presented a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional silver and amalgam fillings. Fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings and are made of a plastic dental resin combined with glass particles. With our new materials, a small filling may last a lifetime without ever requiring repair, while larger fillings should last for many years with appropriate care. Plus, tooth-colored fillings feel more like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with increased confidence and comfort. Composite fillings are much more natural looking than the silver mercury amalgam fillings. NOWLIN DENTAL CLINIC IS A MERCURY FREE DENTAL PRACTICE!
Sometimes a tooth must be removed. It is also quite common to have your wisdom teeth removed, especially for teen-agers and young adults. We have experience in all types of extractions, from removing root tips to impacted wisdom teeth, to full mouth extraction.
WHITENING YOUR SMILE
Improving your smile is the easiest way to improve your appearance and look years younger, and professional whitening is one of the quickest, least expensive ways to give you an overall brighter look and take fifteen years off of your face. Tooth whitening is much, much easier and less expensive than a face lift! Our office combines powerful in-office whitening with a take home kit for an absolutely dazzling smile. Our Registered Dental Hygienists are experienced and knowledgeable providers of this easy self-improvement service.
STRAIGHTENING YOUR SMILE
Dr. Bob has been straightening the smiles in Western Oklahoma for a long, long time. We provide conventional braces, and for those patients who are candidates for this esthetic and almost invisible treatment, we also provide Invisalign®, which consists of a series of custom-made clear aligners that fit securely over your existing teeth. We have patients of all ages who are straightening their teeth – you are never too old to improve your smile!
Your experience here at Nowlin Dental Clinic is very important to us, especially your level of Comfort! A comfortable setting for your treatment is our priority. We offer the following ways to help you relax and be more at ease:
Nitrous Oxide, commonly called laughing gas, is an anti-anxiety drug that is quickly cleared from the system allowing patients to drive immediately after their treatment.
Soft blankets and neck pillows (we wash between each use).
Sunglasses to darken the room.
Sirius XM headphones and channel of your choice (or you can bring your own device).
Oral sedation (sleep dentistry).
EMAX all ceramic crowns (caps) allow a restoration to be finished the same day your impression is made with no need for temporary crowns.
Our personal attention to you, along with our state-of-the-art equipment, help make your experience at Nowlin Dental Clinic a pleasant one.
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Oral Conscious Sedation is an excellent option for high anxiety patients who need more than just nitrous oxide. Many people are able to relax while having important dental treatment completed using just a small pill. With minimal sedation you will be fully awake throughout your dental appointment although it may feel as if you aren’t. This is because minimal oral conscious sedation has an amnesiac effect, leaving the patient with little or no memory of their dental appointment even though they were fully awake. This is an extremely effective and very safe option for those who would otherwise avoid the dentist due to high fear and anxiety. Be sure to ask us if you are a good candidate for minimal oral conscious sedation so that your dental team at Nowlin Dental Clinic can help you achieve the smile of your dreams quickly and comfortably.
