Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
During a routine checkup and cleaning, Dr. Kendrick can keep an eye on the health of your teeth and gums, as well as the rest of your mouth. Gum disease, oral cancer, and cavities can be found during a general dentistry appointment. We don’t want to take any chances with your safety, so our routine exams are thorough. Dr. Kendrick and the Midwest Center Dental staff use a variety of methods to look out for your needs.
During every general dentistry examination, we’ll look for signs of decay occurring above or below the gum line. With digital X-rays, we can catch problems along the roots of a tooth, and our general dentistry team are experts in the detection of cavities. After a comprehensive examination, one of our dental hygienists will give your teeth a deep cleaning, gently removing plaque and gum disease-causing bacteria from your smile.
Dr. Kendrick is concerned with little smiles, too! That’s why he sees kids for children’s dentistry exams after their second or third birthday, once their teeth have grown in. We’ll be able to educate your loved ones on the proper way to brush, floss, and otherwise maintain oral wellness. Dr. Kendrick wants to provide reliable general dentistry care to every member of your family!
The Midwest City Dental Center staff is concerned with making your dental care routine as effective and efficient as possible. During each trip to our dental office for a general dentistry appointment, we can provide dental education. We’ll briefly go over brushing and flossing techniques while we clean your smile. Our general dentistry team wants to help you maintain your beautiful teeth for years to come!
Please contact our dental office today to schedule your general dentistry appointment. We see patients from Midwest City, Del City, Oklahoma City, and nearby areas.
Oral Cancer Screening
The prevalence of oral cancer is rising in the US, and early detection of the disease can dramatically increase the chances of successful treatment. Precancerous or cancerous areas may go unnoticed for too long. Fortunately, Dr. Kendrick is highly trained to look out for suspicious areas that may indicate trouble. With an oral cancer screening performed alongside your regular checkup and cleaning, we can increase life expectancy of patients who have oral cancer.
You can’t always plan for when you need to visit the dentist. If a tooth becomes dislodged, knocked out, broken, or if existing dental work malfunctions, you can count on the team at Midwest City Dental Center to come to the rescue with prompt emergency treatment. Contact us right away when you experience any situation requiring urgent care, and we’ll schedule a time for you to come in as soon as is necessary given your situation.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease currently affects the majority of adults in the US. The condition can cause tooth loss and a host of health issues when left untreated. Symptoms of gum disease include swollen, tender, bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, gum recession, and others. Attending regular checkups and cleanings can help us help you prevent gum disease — but if you do experience the condition, we come to the rescue with gum disease treatment.
In the beginning stages, gum disease can be reversed with improved dental hygiene at home and a couple extra cleanings. As the condition worsens, nonsurgical scaling and root planing may be needed. Also called a deep cleaning, it’s a procedure in which your dentist or trained dental hygienist cleans above and below the gum line, then smooths the tooth’s roots to prevent reinfection.
