There’s a lot going on in your mouth right now. Various bacteria and other mouth-loving chemicals are moving up, down, over, and across your teeth. Some of these bacteria are washed away from your saliva, but other fragments can remain. Think of food particles. Every time you eat food the spaces between your teeth and other areas throughout your mouth are inundated with food particles that haven’t been properly digested. When these food particles stick around for too long they begin to rot. Rotting food isn’t good for your mouth – bacteria can flourish and eventually result in tooth decay, which can then lead to costly procedures and more time than you have spent at our dental office. There’s a lot you can do to keep your mouth in excellent health, including brushing and flossing twice a day. Unfortunately, doing these tasks alone won’t keep your mouth totally clean, but it certainly does help. The rest can be taken care of by us. A dental checkup helps keep us in the loop as far as your oral health is concerned. We’re your extra set of eyes for things you can’t see in your mouth. We’ll clean and polish your teeth while keeping an eye out of possible disease or cavity development. The dentists Oklahoma City, OK trusts are right here in our office.

Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier at Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK are on a mission to provide a full range of services while reducing patient anxiety in a comfortable and friendly environment.
Researchers “… found almost two thirds of participants reporting depression (61 per cent) also reported having an aching mouth in the past year and more than half (57.4 per cent) considered their teeth to be in fair or poor condition.” In addition, it was noted that “… the more dental conditions one had the greater the severity of their depression.”

Replacing missing teeth is of great importance for a variety of reasons, including improving your ability to eat and speak properly. At Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier offer a wide range of restorative dentistry options to help reconstruct your dentition, including conventional dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Are Dentures Right for Me?
When most people think of dentures, the image of a full set of false teeth is typically the first thing that comes to mind. These are called complete dentures, and they effectively take the place of an entire arch of missing teeth. At Dental Expressions, we will ensure that your complete dentures look natural and feel comfortable so that you can once again fully enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling with a full set of teeth.
Partial dentures also replace missing teeth, though they differ from conventional dentures in that they replace only a few teeth rather than an entire arch. The custom-crafted prosthetic teeth are color-matched to your existing dentition for the most natural look possible. Partial dentures not only replace missing teeth for improved function and aesthetics; they also help prevent other teeth from shifting.
A consultation with the team at Dental Expressions will aid in determining which type of dentures are right for you. We’ll take the time to sit down with you and discuss all available options to ensure that we find the ideal solution for your unique situation. If you are interested in implant-retained dentures, we’ll explain the dental implant process and develop a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
