The Importance of Prevention

Preventive dentistry includes comprehensive dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Portland dental office twice a year. By seeing you regularly, Dr. Brown can easily find and treat problems like small cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages.

Dental Exams

Our Portland dentist recommends dental exams every six months because they help us to stay up-to-date with your oral health. During these appointments, we carefully check each tooth for signs of decay and look for evidence of gum disease.

We want you to feel fully informed and confident about the treatment we recommend, so we use technology like digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. They not only help us diagnose dental conditions, but they also let you see what we see and better understand the need for treatment.

If we find that you need treatment to get your oral health back up to par, we will work with you to develop an individualized plan to ensure that we meet all your needs.

Teeth Cleaning Appointments

Gum disease is a widespread problem affecting half of all US adults over the age of 30. It can exist without your knowledge, but all the while, it is damaging your oral health. Routine hygiene appointments are crucial because we can find and treat gum disease early on, and long before it threatens your oral health.

Cleaning appointments every six months are fine if you have a healthy smile and no history of dental problems. If yours isn’t, our knowledgeable dental hygienists may recommend more frequent appointments to help you maintain excellent oral health.

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

Preventing decay and gum disease doesn’t just benefit your oral health. Every day we learn more about the effect that our oral health has on our general health and wellness. Chronic gum disease has been linked to numerous systemic diseases, including heart and lung disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, cancer, and pregnancy complications.
