Our dentist and dental team in Portland, OR are excited to provide general and family dentistry to patients of all ages. We are dedicated to providing you and your family with all of the dental care you require in one convenient location. General and family dentistry includes a number of services whose purpose is to help you and your family reach ideal oral health and then to maintain the health for a lifetime. Depending on your unique dental needs, our dentist at Columbia River Dentistry in Portland, OR may suggest one or more of our general and family dental treatments. The following will give you an idea of some of the procedures that fall under the category of general dentistry at our office:
- Dental Hygiene Appointments: It’s important to always visit your dentist every 6 months for proper check-ups and cleanings in order to prevent decay.
- Gum Disease Treatment: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, can eventually result in the loss of multiple teeth. This is due to the bacteria found in the hard deposits, or tartar, that form on the teeth when dental hygiene is not properly maintained. These bacteria attack the gums, which can become inflamed and bleed frequently. The first step in preventing periodontal disease is by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly.
During your visit at Columbia River Dentistry, our dentist and dental team will always thoroughly explain all of your treatment options prior in order for you to make an informed decision. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental care and that of your family. We offer metal-free dentistry and use only aesthetic, tooth-colored material to construct our dental restorations, not metal.
We urge you to contact our dental office as soon as possible if you experience any dental pain or any other type of dental emergency. To learn more and to schedule your next visit, contact our dental office today.
