There you are at work…spending the day like any other. Between the usual meetings and making headway on some big projects, you take a quick drink of your iced tea and start chewing on ice. You don’t think much about it since it’s been a habit for so long, but all of a sudden… crunch. You feel something give way on a back tooth and get the distinct impression that you’re suddenly chewing more than just ice. You have a broken piece of filling in your mouth! How could this happen?! You’ve been chewing on ice for years but apparently, this was one time too many.
If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation like this one you know it’s an experience you’d rather not repeat. In this blog, your dentist in Sapulpa will talk about simple ways to prevent these things from happening in the future.
It’s not uncommon to hear about the importance of screening for skin, colon or breast cancer. What we don’t hear much about is oral cancer. Unfortunately, this type of cancer has been on the rise in recent years. As with many diseases, screening and early detection remain one of the best ways to improve the prognosis of this devastating condition.
But how can you go about getting an oral cancer screening? It’s simple – schedule regular dental care! In this blog, your dentist in Sapulpa will explain how often screenings are recommended, what’s involved and some ways to potentially prevent this disease.

We understand that you don’t avoid the dentist because you don’t feel like going. Getting your regular treatments can be extremely difficult if you have a dental fear, especially if it’s because of a negative experience you had at a previous practice. However, dental fear is not as uncommon as you think. It’s been estimated that between 9 and 15 percent of Americans avoided seeing the dentist out of fear or due to anxiety. That equates to between 30 and 40 million people.
That’s why your sedation dentist in Sapulpa is offering multiple solutions to curb your dental fear. Trust us, it’s much better to consider these over never visiting.

Wisdom comes with age, and so do wisdom teeth. The third molars at the back of your mouth got their name because they tend to show up later in life — supposedly when a person is older and smarter.
