General & Preventive Dentistry In Beaverton OR

Preventing tooth decay and gum disease has multiple benefits including: systemic reduction in harmful bacteria ingestion, elimination of painful teeth and gums, aesthetic function and appearance, and reduction in costly treatments before they occur.

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection caused by bacteria under the gum tissue that begin to destroy the gums and bone. Teeth become loose, chewing becomes difficult, and teeth may have to be extracted. Gum disease may also be related to damage elsewhere in the body; recent studies point to associations between such oral infections and diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and preterm, low-weight births. Research is underway to further examine these connections.

Sealants

Sealants are a white plastic resin that is placed into the grooves of the chewing surface of your tooth to help to prevent the formation of tooth decay (“cavities”). Sealants can wear over time and need to replaced, usually after 3 years or more depending on diet and bite force.

Teeth Grinding

Dental guards are recommended treatment for patients with nocturnal or daytime teeth grinding (bruxism) habits. In addition to limiting teeth wear, night guards (NG) help to support the muscles used to chew and the jaw joint called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In some cases, patients with severe habits and or symptoms will need to be referred to a TMD (Temporomandibular Dysfunction) specialist, or a sleep clinic for further diagnosis and treatment.

There are two main types of night guards: soft, which is flexible and preferred by mild bruxism patients, and hard, which is not flexible and made for patients with mild to severe bruxism and misaligned teeth. Options are discussed prior to fabrication of the night guard. Both types will last from 1-5 years on average before need for replacement.

Cleaning

A dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, is a routine procedure that usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour and occurs 2 times per year. A deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is a procedure that could take up to 4 appointments to complete and will last an hour or more. This is a one time treatment unless recurrent disease occurs. A periodontal maintenance cleaning is scheduled after scaling and root planing for subsequent and long term routine care, usually 3 or 4 times a year.

The level of cleaning needed is determined by bacteria level, bone loss, and periodontal (gums/ bone) disease diagnosis. Most patients will fall into the prophylaxis category and see the hygienist 2 times a year or every 6 months.

Radiographs and an exam will also be a provided after routine cleanings. Dr. Bradley will advise you if any issues are found at this time.

Dr. Bradley is my new dentist. My first visit went smooth and didn't have to wait long. Got my teeth checked and a plan of action was quickly set in place to get my teeth back to getting them cleaned and fixed. His dentistry team made me feel welcome and comfortable. Glad to have him and his team as my dentistry team. Thank you.
