Restorative Dentistry Portland, OR
Dental fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth.
Dental crowns are used to restore cracked or decayed teeth. A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.
Dentures are created for patients who no longer have any healthy teeth remaining. They provide patients with some level of restoring function, improving appearance and holding your facial shape. Traditionally, dentures have not been known for being very comfortable, and patients had to make significant changes to their diet. Dentures today come with a variety of options in how they feel and how they are retained.
Our office utilizes the most cutting edge and state-of-the-art technologies available to give you the most efficient and most accurate treatment options available. We provide you with the best possible crowns without the wait!
Root canal therapy, or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction.
If you are experiencing pain in the back of your mouth, it is important to be seen as soon as possible. We can perform a thorough oral exam to determine if the pain is your wisdom teeth. We look at your teeth and gums and also take X-rays. The X-rays will allow us to see exactly where your wisdom teeth are and the direction in which they are developing.
TMJ disorder is a term that covers a broad category of issues that affect your TMJ as well as the jaw and the attached muscles. No matter what the cause of your TMJ pain, the issue can significantly impact your ability to perform basic functions such as eating and speaking, decreasing your overall quality of life.
Scaling and root planing is essentially a deep cleaning of your mouth. It is designed to remove all buildup from all surfaces of your teeth, including the roots. With your teeth clean, the gums can begin to heal and reattach to your teeth.
Inlays and onlays are an alternative to these traditional fillings. They are known as indirect fillings, created outside of the tooth rather than cured in it.
A dental implant is a metal device designed to replace missing teeth. The device is usually made out of titanium and is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
An extraction, or getting your tooth pulled, is when a problematic tooth is surgically removed to retain your oral health, prepare for orthodontic procedures, or for cosmetic purposes.
In most cases, damaged teeth can be treated and restored. If you have several teeth that are beyond repair, we can help with multiple tooth extractions.
