Preventing tooth decay and gum disease in Beaverton

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 Treatments

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

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.

dental cleaning or prophylaxis

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.

My dentist just up and retired with very little notice, her practice is going to two other very young doctors, I couldn't even leave a voicemail to be seen, I was in a slight panic because this issue kept me from wearing my denture. I called Pacific Northwest Dental and I was seen right away. Turns out, it wasn't serious and my gums are recovering. The office it bright and up to date, exam rooms are really nice, and most importantly the doctor and staff are fabulous. They told me that they are accepting new patients so I'll be transferring my records.

They're always extremely pleasant and helpful 😀 This last visit their suction tool was wigging out, and they'd apologize when it stopped but had it fixed in like 5 minutes tops. I schedule my appointments during my days off, so I personally wasn't bothered, plus they had it fixed in such a short amount of time I didn't even notice. They're also always upgrading their facility; this time, in a room previously visited, there was a new TV installed on the ceiling to help calm patients' nerves. I also had composite bonding done 2 months ago, and the Doctor + assistants were extremely thorough and did such an amazing job! 10/10 🙂

The dental hygienist I saw was kind, caring, and informative. They walked me through the process every step of the way and didn’t waste any time. I appreciated their professional attitude and attention to detail. Dr. Bradley came up with a strategy for fixing the issues I’m experiencing with my teeth while doing his best to keep costs to a minimum. Their facility is clean and they provide distractions to keep you from focusing too much on the actual work being performed - in my case it had been an extended period of time since having a cleaning. I strongly recommend Pacific Northwest Dental if you’re looking for skilled professionals providing quality care.

I have had a great experience at PNW Dental. The staff are all very friendly and responsive (over email and the phone). It has been very easy to schedule and change appointments to fit my schedule. I was even able to come in for an emergency visit within an hour of calling the front desk. All of the hygienists and dentists have been wonderful, especially when a procedure is uncomfortable or painful. They are patient and kind, and try to make the experience as quick as possible (while doing a good job). I have also learned a lot about how to better care for my teeth (and some of the science behind dentistry). Overall great experience!
