Preventive Dentistry and Gum Infection Therapy in Portland
Over 40% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease, but they don’t even know it. At Timber Dental, with our comprehensive menu of preventive dentistry services, we help our patients in NE Portland, Bethany, and East Burnside neighborhoods eliminate the bacterial infections around their teeth. If left untreated, these infections could lead to pervasive tooth loss, impacting your quality of life and finances significantly.
Preventive Dentistry Services Include:
Six Month Cleanings
Starting to notice a fuzzy feeling on your teeth after that Voodoo Doughnut? You’re probably due for another preventive dentistry tooth cleaning! We’ll show you ways to keep your smile healthy between checkups.
Checkups for Kids
The ADA recommends that all children receive their first dental checkup by the time their first tooth comes in or their first birthday… whichever comes first. Children of all ages are welcome in our Portland offices!
Kids aren’t the only ones who can take advantage of this protective coating that combats tooth decay. Adults can too!
Sleep Apnea Options
Do you struggle with sleep apnea or chronic snoring? Are you CPAP intolerant? Ask how we can help you get a better night’s rest.
Gum Infection Therapy
In cases of gingivitis and advanced gum recession, people get infections underneath their gums due to tartar buildup on their roots. During our therapeutic treatments, we clean under the gums to remove the source of the infection before you lose your teeth.
Chronic headaches and migraines can be a real pain, but TMJ disorder or grinding habits can also wear down your teeth. Find out if an NTI or acrylic bite splint can help protect both your smile and your facial muscles.
Ready to schedule? Call now. We’re open late and on Saturdays to accommodate the Portlander on-the-go.
We offer a complete range of general and family dentistry dental treatments to keep your smile healthy, no matter your age.
