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.

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.

Missing teeth can be a real drag for your mouth. It just feels weird. If you do have missing teeth, you probably find yourself dragging your tongue through the open area where a tooth used to stand. A missing tooth is nothing new for our office. We’ve treated many patients who’ve dealt with missing teeth throughout their lives. We hear the same thing from our patients regarding missing teeth and how it keeps them from smiling. This is simply no way to live. Smiling, just like laughing, is highly contagious. We understand why anyone with missing teeth would want to hide their smile, but there are ways to bring that same smile to full beauty.
Dental implants are excellent choices for patients that are suffering with missing teeth. It isn’t just the appearance of your smile that is at risk, your oral health is, too. Open spaces can lure bacteria in and keep it there for a long time. The longer bacteria sticks around, the greater a chance of an infection. Our office in Hillsboro, OR offers dental implants for all patients that want to do something about their missing-tooth problem. It’s tooth replacement Hillsboro residents can receive for their missing teeth.
