Your Portland Dentist
If you’re looking for a dentist in Portland, look no further than Hunter Dental Care. We have experienced and skilled dentists, Dr. Hunter and Dr. Lemond C. Hunter, who can examine your mouth thoroughly to determine your oral health, listen to your concerns, and provide you with a suitable treatment plan.
With us in your corner, you can bid adieu to teeth and gum-related pain and welcome your confident smile back into your life. Whether you are looking for dental implants to replace your missing teeth, a treatment for sleep apnea, or sedation dentistry to keep you calm in the dental chair, our Portland dentist can offer everything you need.
We provide our patients with dental implants to replace their missing teeth. Our dentists are well-versed in assessing gum and jawbone density and monitoring the patient’s overall oral health to ensure they are candidates for dental implants. Once we have ascertained that, we fit the implant into the bone, wait for it to fuse with the jawbone, place the abutment, and then fix the replacement tooth. We guide you through the implant procedure, answer all your questions, and provide you with a care plan.
Our dentists focus on treating loud snoring and sleep apnea. We can help you reduce your snoring and cure mild to moderate sleep apnea so you can sleep soundly through the night. We can provide you with custom snore guards for sleep apnea. These guards will be designed to suit your mouth and jaw structure so that they can fit comfortably and keep you from readjusting them throughout the night.
Moreover, these devices will keep your airway open throughout the night while improving sleep apnea symptoms, including moodiness, daytime sleepiness, concentration problems, and snoring. These snore guards for sleep apnea are an excellent option for people who do not feel comfortable with CPAP. They work without electricity and are easy to take along when traveling. However, if you need this treatment, you will need to visit Hunter Dental Care for a comprehensive assessment.
Our Portland dentists have special certifications to provide our patients with sedation dentistry. It keeps them comfortable during dental procedures and works wonders for people with dental anxiety or those undergoing extensive treatment. Sedation dentistry ensures you remain calm and at ease during your process. We offer a moderate level of sedation or conscious sedation so that you experience no pain.
We recommend it for people who fear visiting the dentist, have anxiety issues or an overly sensitive gag reflex, fear needles, have extreme teeth sensitivity, feel claustrophobic in the dental chair, have special needs, face difficulty controlling movements, or have developed a decreased sensitivity to local anesthesia. Our dentists use multiple sedation dentistry techniques based on your specific needs. We offer nitrous oxide sedation, intravenous sedation, and oral conscious sedation.
