Oregon City Preventative Dentistry

Routine dental exams, cleanings and x-rays are the key to avoiding painful and disruptive dental health issues in the future.

Routine Dentist Exams and Cleaning Are Key to Prevention

We believe preventative dentistry is the cornerstone of optimal oral health. Unfortunately, many patients wait to seek care until an issue becomes noticeable or painful, and often the delay results in discomfort, inconvenience, and preventable damage.

Our routine exams identify and address underlying issues and prevent them from escalating to serious complications, and our dentists provide thoughtful care plans that cater to each patient’s specific needs.

Whether it’s implementing effective oral hygiene practices or advising on lifestyle choices for good dental health, we provide Oregon City preventative dentistry services that help preserve life-long oral wellness.

Periodontal Treatments As Preventative Dentistry

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a significant cause of tooth loss, as well as other serious dental health issues and persistent bad breath. Early detection and intervention are critical to preventing the progression of gum disease, so regularly scheduled cleanings are essential.

By addressing gum disease in its early stages, we can help patients prevent tooth loss and more severe oral health issues. Our team utilizes deep-cleaning techniques to reduce the risk of infection and restore health to the tissues that support the teeth.

Our dental team also has experience treating more advanced stages of periodontitis, such as scaling and root planing, but aims to prevent this level of treatment through preventative periodontal care.

Proactive Preventative Dental Treatments for Kids

Establishing good dental hygiene habits at a young age sets the stage for lifelong oral wellness. We believe that when children have positive dental experiences at a young age, they’re more likely to embrace the importance of dental hygiene and commit to maintaining optimal oral health.

Our preventative pediatric treatments keep existing teeth healthy, and give our team the opportunity to assess any changes from the patient’s previous exam so recommendations can be made for further preventative care if necessary – sealants to prevent decay in permanent teeth for example, or night guards for children who grind their teeth.

It’s normal for children to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, but our team is committed to providing pediatric dental care with a gentle compassion that reduces worry, builds trust, and helps young patients understand the benefits of preventative dentistry.
