Find Relief in Your Tooth Pain with Root Canal Therapy

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. When the bacteria in your mouth infects the pulp of your tooth, the result is pain and pressure. 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!

shutterstock_151587851With summer knocking at your door, many people are doing everything they can to make sure they look their absolute best for the summer season. Whether it is buying the best food for the barbeque or going to the gym to get ready for the beach, many people are wanting to have as much fun and feel as confident inside and out as possible.

Brandon and Malinda Kearbey understands the struggle his patients go through when they have teeth missing from their smile, and he is able to give them the smile they have always wanted using dental implants.

A dental implant is a small piece of biocompatible titanium that is placed directly into an empty tooth socket. The titanium post-like implant will act as a new tooth root, and will prevent the rest of the teeth in your mouth from shifting to make up for the empty spaces due to the missing teeth. The bone in your jaw and your gum tissue with bond with the implant over time, creating a strong, permanent bond. After the right amount of healing time as passed, a crown is added on top of your implant– a crown that exactly resembles a natural tooth. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a beautiful, full smile you can be proud of.

Dental implants can be used to anchor a dental crown to completely recreate a tooth, or to hold a fixed bridge permanently in place. Both solutions create a natural-looking row of teeth that you are ready and willing to show off at any given moment! So if you are ready for a beautiful, full smile just in time for summer, make an appointment with Drs. Kearbey, and they will be more than happy to help!

Calm Your Dental Fear with Sedation Dentistry

May 14, 2014

shutterstock_98139272It is no secret that having a fear of the dentist is quite common. For some people, the fear is slight, only a feeling of discomfort. For others, however, the fear is severe, causing them to delay, or avoid altogether, getting the much needed dental work they need done. If you are someone who suffers from severe dental anxiety, you may feel as though there is no helping you. Fortunately, Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey are able to alleviate your fears with the use of sedation dentistry!

Sedation dentistry can be beneficial to many people, not just those who have a fear of the dentist. Those with TMJ, a sensitive gag reflex, or people who are embarrassed by the condition their smile is in can all reap the benefits of sedation dentistry.

Oral conscious sedation involves taking a small pill one hour prior to your appointment. During the appointment, you will feel relaxed, and we will cover you with a warm blanket, making you feel as comfortable as possible. Be sure to have a friend bring you to your appointment and home, that way you will be able fully recover from your appointment. There is also nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, which is included in our sedation dentistry. With this, you are conscious the entire time during your dental work, but you feel absolutely no pain! Simple and convenient, nitrous oxide is ideal for adults and children alike!

IV sedation is where we administer an IV line in your arm, and deliver the sedative right into your bloodstream. This form of sedation is for those patients that experience moderate to severe dental anxiety. Dr. Simmons will be able to administer you the right about of sedation, offering you a customized dental experience. With both forms of sedation, you will be free of pain and be able to experience a wonderful, relaxing dental appointment.

The Connection between Oral Health and Heart Health

February 25, 2014

What if we told you there was a very important connection between oral and overall health? Most people would be surprised to hear that, but it’s true.

What’s the connection? According to recent data, it can be traced to gum disease, a very common oral health condition that affects a majority of U.S. adults.

Gum disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria and plaque around the gums. Over time, these irritants will cause tissue loss, culminating in the formation of pockets between the teeth and gums. These pockets give the bacteria and plaque of gum disease an entryway into your bloodstream, and from there, to other parts of the body.

What kinds of health problems can be exacerbated by gum disease? Heart disease is one of the most common but it’s not the only one. Other health conditions that can be impacted by gum disease include:

  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Pneumonia
  • Pre-term birth or low birth weight

You can protect your smile and your overall health by following a couple of easy but important steps.

First, make sure that you’re brushing and flossing every day. At The Dentists at Orenco Station, we recommend brushing twice a day, flossing at least once, and gargling with an antibacterial mouthwash. Following a routine like this will help you control the amount of bacteria in your mouth.

But a good homecare routine isn’t all it takes to enjoy good oral health. We also recommend seeing Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey twice a year for checkups and cleanings. Why so often? Because some patients may be struggling with gum disease without even knowing it. During your appointment with us, we’ll look for signs of the condition and offer care if we find anything.

Call The Dentists at Orenco Station if you’re ready to schedule your next checkup with Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey. They’re happy to care for patients from Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and beyond.


Improve Your Entire Family’s Smile In 2014 with Family Dental Care

January 29, 2014

A common question for any dentist is: How often should I come in for checkups and cleanings? The answer might surprise you. While you only need to see your primary care doctor once a year, it’s a good idea to see your dentist twice a year. Why so often? Because common oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease can develop quickly and easily. And it doesn’t matter how old the patient is—children are just as susceptible to these conditions as adults.

That’s why Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey are proud to put family dental care at the center of what they do. With a checkup and cleaning twice a year, our friendly, experienced Hillsboro team will help you and your little ones watch for signs of decay, gum disease, TMJ dysfunction, and even oral cancer. We can also remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar above and below the gum line with a professional cleaning.

What’s more, our helpful Hillsboro dental team can also talk to you about taking care of your smile at home. Regular brushing and flossing are important; they can do a lot to protect your teeth from gum disease and tooth decay in between visits, though even the best homecare routine isn’t a substitute for a professional cleaning.

And what if we find something during your visit with us? Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey are happy to put together a customized plan to help you. We offer a great range of today’s best general, cosmetic, and restorative services.

Do you need to schedule your first appointment for yourself or your child? Call The Dentists at Orenco Station today for an appointment. Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey serve families from Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, and Rock Creek.

Trade Sugar for Xylitol This Holiday Season

October 28, 2013

On Thursday, Halloween will come and go, signaling the start of the holiday season. From now until the stroke of midnight on December 31, 2013, homes and offices will be awash in holiday treats.

At The Dentists at Orenco Station, we want you to enjoy everything the holidays have to offer, but we also want you to enjoy good oral and overall health. To help with that, we recommend that our Hillsboro patients trade conventional sugar for xylitol.

What Is Xylitol?

Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibers of plants and can be substituted with sugar for baking at a ratio of 1:1. But the key thing to note here is how differently it responds to the bacteria in the mouth. Sugar responds to bacteria by creating acid, which damages teeth and creates cavities. That’s not the case with xylitol, which creates a neutral environment safe for teeth instead.

Because of how different the response is, why not consider making a switch? You can use xylitol for baking, but you can also find candies that have been sweetened with it. To find candies sweetened with xylitol, explore sites like Dr. John’s Candies and Ice Chips. You can also find xylitol products at your nearest health food store.

Do you have questions for Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey? Call us today to ask, or to schedule your next appointment. Our office is located in Hillsboro and serves patients from Forest GroveBeaverton, Cornelius, and Rock Creek.
