W. Ross Ryan and his staff undergo continuing education in order to perform the preventive treatments they believe can steer patients clear of future dental disease. In the clinic, they preemptively perform exams, x-rays, and routine cleanings and also apply coats of sealant and fluoride. Dr. Ryan can also send patrons home with custom whitening trays. He regularly attends dental conventions to stay up to date on these services or to hang out with somebody who doesn’t think the word mandibular is hilarious.
Dr. Michelle Sanor—a product of the University of Central Oklahoma—and her team of hygienists foster a spa-like atmosphere with relaxed demeanors and tranquil surroundings. Besides providing family- and cosmetic-dentistry services such as teeth whitening and dental implants, they perform spa services, offering dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm to erase fine lines around mouths and eyes. They also utilize the latest technology to ensure efficient visits, such as digital x-rays, which deliver comprehensive views of mouths quickly while exposing patients to less radiation than standard x-rays.
Dr. Stephen Buchanan, DDS, and his professional staff straighten and whiten crooked or stained chompers in a cozy, earth-toned office. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift incisors into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 18 or as many as 30 separate aligners need to be worn and removed only when eating, brushing, flossing, or discussing politics during a period of 9–15 months to achieve best results. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer; it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. This Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost.
Your appointment will begin with Signature Dental's top smile specialist, Dr. Kesa McConnell, and her team giving you a comprehensive oral exam ($72), during which they'll screen your mouth for problems such as decay, periodontal disease, and restless tongue syndrome. Digital x-rays ($57) and a panoramic x-ray ($95) doubly guarantee that troublesome teeth's underlying traumas and psychological scars are brought to inverted light. A full cleaning ($79) will then remove plaque and tartar, helping to prevent future cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, and mouth moss.
