As such, it can take several weeks of daily use before you seen any significant improvement in the color of your teeth.

Do You Have Dental Fears? Discover Your Sedation Dentistry Options in Hillsboro, OR

February 17, 2015

469790631Do you have a fear of dental treatment? Dental fear and anxiety is a common barrier for many patients to seek the dental treatment they need to stay healthy. For some, dental fear and anxiety can persist despite the promise of pain relieving anesthetic doses. If your dental fears keep you from receiving dental care on a regular basis, you could be jeopardizing your overall health. But you can protect yourself from dental decay by making your next dental care appointment with the gentle and understanding sedation dentistry experts of Orenco Station. Drs.

What Are Your Sedation Dentistry Choices?

  • Oral Conscious Sedation: Oral conscious sedation can help the majority of patients with mild to moderate levels of dental fear and anxiety. Sedation medication can be taken orally, about an hour before your appointment begins. The medication will make you drowsy, but you will remain awake.
  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation: If you need stronger sedation, Dr. Kearbey offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation. Nitrous oxide gas is combined with oxygen through a mask that’s gently placed over your nose. The gas will help you feel completely relaxed, and Dr. Kearbey can control the amount of sedation you receive. Nitrous oxide gas can wear off quickly once the mask is removed so you will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure if this is your sedation choice.
  • IV Sedation: With IV sedation, you can receive your sedative medication through a vein, so that it will take effect quickly. This method will also allow Dr. Kearbey to continually adjust the level of sedation administered.

While oral conscious sedation can help the majority of patients with mild to moderate levels of dental fear or anxiety, it may be ineffective in patients with more acute levels of anxiety. Dr. Kearbey will work with you to ensure that you receive the type and amount of sedation medication that works best for you. Make your next sedation dentistry appointment with Drs.

Could Your Headache and Neck Pain Be Caused By a TMJ Disorder?

December 17, 2014

479066503Do you often have unexplained head pain and jaw stiffness? You could be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Millions of people suffer from the headaches, neck pain, and joint and muscle soreness of TMJ disorder without knowing it. Untreated TMJ disorder can make it difficult to eat or even speak. If you suspect that you may have developed a TMJ disorder, make an appointment with Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey for a TMJ disorder evaluation and treatment plan today. They can determine if your pain and discomfort stem from a TMJ disorder. The Dentists at Orenco Station proudly serve patients of all ages throughout Hillsboro, OR, Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and nearby communities.

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorder is a group of degenerative conditions involving the temporomandibular joint and its surrounding muscles. This area is responsible for the jaw movement necessary to talk and eat. The joint slides and rotates just in front of your ear, connecting the temporal bone (side of the skull) with the mandible (lower jaw). TMJ disorder can fall into one of three categories:

  • Myofascial pain: discomfort or pain in the muscles of the jaw, neck, and shoulders
  • Injury: resulting from a dislocated jaw or displaced disc
  • Degenerative joint disease: rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis in the jaw joint

What are the Signs of TMJ Disorder?

  • Jaw pain or soreness that is specific to a certain time of day
  • Jaw pain when you chew or yawn
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth
  • Difficulty opening and closing the mouth
  • Locked or stiff jaw
  • Sensitive teeth in the absence of infection or gum disease
  • An earache without an ear infection

Who’s at Risk for Developing TMJ Disorder?

No one knows the exact cause of TMJ disorder. However, TMJ disorder does affect twice as many women as men. Trauma to the jaw or jaw joint can sometimes play a role in development of the disorder, but in most cases the cause of the disorder is unknown. However, stressful situations can aggravate the symptoms. The discomfort you experience is caused by the overuse of the jaw joint muscles, especially if you clench or grind your teeth (bruxism). These excessive habits can tire the jaw muscles and lead to the associated pain and discomfort in the head and neck.

August 15, 2014

489085765You can talk to anyone who has had to live with pain, and they will all say that it is never an enjoyable or easy experience. Living in pain is never an easy experience, and can be taxing on the mind, body, and heart. One of the worst pains someone can live with is tooth pain, causing your entire mouth to ache. Though some people may be quick to dismiss it as mere discomfort, there can be many underlying issues within your smile causing your tooth to ache. If you are experiencing intense tooth pain, Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey are able to put you at ease with root canal therapy.

A root canal is needed when a cavity has taken control of your tooth and has started infecting the pulp within your tooth, or when there has been some sort of dental trauma.

It is important to make sure that you contact our office if you are experiencing tooth pain, as the bacteria have the capability of entering your blood stream if left untreated. A few signs that you may need a root canal are a sharp pain when you chew, pressure on the tooth causes immediate pain, swelling and discoloring in the gum tissue, and severe sensitivity to hold or cold foods and beverages.

Our doctors will begin your root canal therapy by addressing the infected tooth. They will remove the pulp and the nerve, immediately alleviating you of your pain. After that, they will fill the tooth with a biocompatible material, and top the tooth off with a crown, as to make sure no bacteria is able to make its way back to your tooth. If you would like Drs. Kearbey’s help in alleviating you of your tooth pain with root canal therapy, contact our office today!
