Why Dental Hygiene in Tulsa is No Joke | Utica Dental

Feb 11, 2016 | Dental

Your car and your mouth have at least one thing in common; if you run them non-stop, eventually something’s going to go wrong. We’re not talking about thoughtless speech; we’re more interested in talking about the last time you had an appointment for dental hygiene in Tulsa.

Take ownership of your 2016 benefits with your hygiene dentists in Tulsa!

The most successful celebrities and executives know that “regular maintenance” is a must if they are to keep their empires growing strong. A Hollywood actress would never get on screen with horrible-looking teeth, would she? They value their smile for the opportunities and confidence it affords them with; so why shouldn’t you? While most of us are not celebrities, it is true that the treatment you receive from your spouse, family, workmates, and even the waiter at the restaurant is greatly influenced by your smile and overall personality.

A warm, bright smile will make you feel healthy, attractive, and confident. This in turn will influence those around you to treat you in a more positive way. That is just one reason why regular checkups and dental hygiene visits with your dentist in Tulsa is beneficial.


Is dodging the dentist for a couple years really that serious?


It is if you want to keep on living. For example, suppose you are currently unaware of an infection in your mouth, but have felt some funky symptoms, such as a bad taste in our mouth, or even worse, bleeding gums. If left to develop and spread, you could suffer from the following disastrous conditions within a few months:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Oral cancer
  • Erectile dysfunction (yes, you read correctly)
  • Pregnancy complications (premature labor, low birth weight in babies)
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Difficulty becoming pregnant


Your dental hygiene dentist in Tulsa just wants you to be healthy and happy. If your mouth is unhealthy, your entire system will soon start to break down, and then your career, household, and personal life would soon follow suit. We can partner with you to make sure you are ALWAYS the brightest smile in the room.
