Did you know that 20 percent of children from the age of 5 to 11 have had at least one decayed tooth? The same goes for 13 percent of adolescents aged 12 to 19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) predicted that by the age of 15, about 60 percent of all adolescents will have had a cavity. Although cavities are generally preventable, the CDC states that they’re the “most common chronic disease of children.” By visiting your dentist in Hillsboro routinely, whether it be either Dr. Brandon or Malinda Kearbey, you can work towards preventing your child from becoming a statistic.

Congratulations! With help from The Dentists at Orenco Station, you have rebuilt your healthy and beautiful smile with dental implants. You may know that your implants take the place of both the root and crown of a missing tooth. The implant portion is embedded in your jaw and the attached restoration—a porcelain crown, bridge, partial or full denture—is what shows. Properly cleaning your implant supported teeth replacements is just as important as cleaning your own natural teeth. If you have dental implants, Hillsboro dentists Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey have some advice on how to maintain optimal oral health with proper cleaning.

Your Delta dentist encourages you to stay on top of your dental care, for the benefit of your oral health and your wallet.

If you’ve ever had a toothache, then you know the pain can be severe. In some cases, the pain you feel is caused by more than just your tooth. An abscess is an infection at the root of a tooth or between the root and the surrounding gum tissue. This infection can be quite serious—even life threatening—and, therefore, demands immediate attention. If you or a loved one has a toothache, don’t play the waiting game. Contact the dentist in Hillsboro, Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey at The Dentists at Orenco Station, for immediate diagnosis and treatment.

If it has been a while since you’ve visited the dentist, there’s a good possibility your teeth are going to need deep cleaned. The American Academy of Periodontology recommends adults visit the dentist every year for an evaluation. However, we know this doesn’t always happen. No matter if you visit the dentist regularly or if it has been a few years, an evaluation by your dentist will determine whether or not you need a regular cleaning or a deep cleaning. While many believe the two are the same, there are actually fairly big differences between the two procedures.
