Warn and his team are honored to provide dental services to families from throughout the Lawton, Oklahoma area and beyond. Many adults come to the practice seeking individual care but are so happy with their experience that they bring the entire family in for routine, cosmetic, and emergency dental services.

What is the best way to deal with a child’s fear of the dentist?

You know that dental care is essential for your child’s health, but when a visit to the dentist turns into a source of stress, it can create stress and anxiety for everyone involved.

Dr. Warn is a parent himself and understands that kids have a specific set of needs when it comes to dental visits. He and his staff make every effort to make kids feel comfortable and welcome during appointments, and many even look forward to coming in for routine screenings and preventive care.

If your child is especially fearful of dental visits, it might help to bring them along for your next check-up or cleaning. Letting them see what a routine dental appointment looks like can remove the “unknown” aspects of dental visits, and show them that there is nothing to worry about when the time comes for their appointment.

How do I know if my child needs braces?

Your child’s mouth goes through several changes as they grow and develop. From the eruption of those first baby teeth to the anticipation of visits from the tooth fairy, childhood is a time of transition.

Many parents are unsure about whether their child needs braces. The following are signs that braces may be a good option, and should prompt a visit to Premier Dental Arts for a consultation:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding of teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Misalignment of bite

What are “invisible braces,” and are they an effective option?

Advancements in dental technology have changed the way that dentists approach alignment issues. You may have heard of various “invisible braces” options and might be wondering if this is a good option for you or your children.

At Premier Dental Arts, Dr. Warn offers the Short Term Ortho. This technique is only available to adults and teens over the age of 18. Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires provide just the right amount of tension needed to straighten crooked smiles over a short period.

Invisalign is a treatment program that straightens crooked teeth gradually with a series of removable dental aligner trays. These trays are clear, so they aren’t as noticeable, or distracting as traditional metal braces and treatment with Invisalign is generally shorter, too.

Six Month Smiles can create beautiful smiles with fewer dental visits and at a lower cost than traditional braces.
