What we do
We want to meet as many of your dental needs as possible to ensure you’re cared for by a team you know and trust. For that reason, our practice in Tillamook offers many specialized treatments in-house, the kind that would often require a referral to a specialist. See the list below, or call Ashley for more information on our capabilities.
INDIVIDUALIZED PREVENTATIVE CARE
This is the general check up type stuff to make sure you’re doing A-OK.
- Risk assessment
- Nutrition and diet analysis
- pH testing and modification
- Remineralization therapy
ORAL CANCER SCREENINGS
Examination of the mouth and throat to detect any abnormalities.
Tooth-colored composite fillings that restore and mimic natural tooth structure.
PORCELAIN & GOLD CROWNS
Lab-made restorations that replace missing or damaged tooth structure. The only difference between the two is the porcelain is tooth colored and gold makes you look fancy.
INLAYS & ONLAYS
Lab-made restorations that are placed on teeth when the cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a filling. The process is very similar to a crown. After the tooth is prepared, it is cemented or bonded to the tooth.
IMPLANT PLACEMENT & RESTORATION
This is a great option for missing teeth. We place a synthetic tooth root (a titanium post) in the jaw and place the replacement tooth on the post. They are also a great option to increase the stability of partials and dentures.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Definitely the one everyone hears the most about, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered if you’ve heard one too many horror stories. It’s a treatment of infected or severely inflamed root tissue. The infected or dead tissue is removed and the canal is cleaned, medicated and filled with a special material.
Exactly what it sounds like. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to kick out a house guest.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE GRAFTING
One of the specialized treatments we offer. Used to treat root exposure and maintain healthy gums and bone.
DENTURES & PARTIALS
Natural looking replacement teeth that are removable.
- Porcelain veneers - thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth. It can be a great choice for those looking to make position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
- Teeth whitening
- Replacement of old fillings
