Trust Us, We Have A Lot To Offer
We strive to be a comprehensive dental office that takes care of the entire family’s current needs over and above preventative maintenance. Some of our treatment services include:
Fillings are a common treatment for cavities at our office and are effective when dental decay does not extend into the roots of your teeth.
You can customize your fillings by selecting from tooth colored composite, porcelain, silver, or gold.
The process for fillings is quick and painless. We first gently remove the decay to prevent further damage to your teeth. The filling material is then applied and allowed to harden, and you are good to go.
At Oregon City Family Dentistry, we use crowns to cover a tooth and bring it back to its normal shape and size.
When do we use crowns?
In cases where a tooth’s structure is no longer capable of supporting a filling (usually because of decay or some sort of injury), a crown can be used to cover and strengthen the remaining tissue.
Crowns are also used to attach a bridge, cover an implant, or protect weak or broken teeth.
Fixed partial dentures are commonly called bridges.
What exactly do bridges do?
A dental bridge replaces missing teeth. It is affixed into place with glue and can be fashioned from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
It is not removed at night like dentures.
Dentures and Partials
False teeth, or dentures, are prosthetic dental devices that, you guessed it, replace missing teeth.
Dentures rely on support from surrounding bone structure and gums and must be taken out nightly for cleaning.
What about partials?
If some teeth still remain in the arch, a removeable partial denture can be used. It is often chosen as an alternative to a bridge for cost purposes, or if a patient is not a good candidate for a bridge.
If you have suffered any adult tooth loss, the most natural feeling and functioning treatment option we can offer you is a dental implant.
At Oregon City Family Dentistry, we do these in three stages.
First, we insert an implant into the jaw with the tip just above the bone structure.
We let the implant fuse with your bone for three to six months, then we place a post in the implant. This post provides the structure for the new tooth.
The last step is placing a crown is over the post, and your smile will be good as new.
