Northwest Implants and Periodontics

Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality of dental implant and periodontal care in a warm and caring environment.

On your first visit to our office you will be given a thorough examination. Afterwards, we will explain our findings and your options for treatment including the cost of treatment. We will allow extra time to be sure all your questions are answered. We want to make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision that works well for you.

While using ingredients that are naturally acidic or abrasive may seem like an appealing option for DIY teeth whitening, they can wear away the enamel with repeated use, so using citrus fruit, apple cider vinegar, or baking soda to whiten your teeth might do more harm than good in the long run.

While looking for early signs of oral cancer is part of a routine dental exam, you can also check for potential signs of oral cancer at home while you brush your teeth, such as red or white spots, lumps, sores that will not heal, difficulty swallowing, pain, and numbness. Noticing the signs early on is a key part of effective treatment, so contact our office as soon as possible if you notice these symptoms.

Tooth grinding (also known as bruxism) not only wears down natural teeth, but it can also damage restorations such as dental implants. Excessive force can affect the stability of dental implants, so it is important to take steps to protect restorations, such as getting a mouth guard or avoiding stressors that cause jaw clenching or tooth grinding.

When cleaning and organizing this spring season, it’s important to not forget about your toothbrushes! If you haven’t replaced your toothbrush recently, be sure to add buying a new one to your spring cleaning list. Toothbrushes should be replaced about once every three months to keep the bristles clean and in good condition.

There’s evidence that humans have been using tools to clean between their teeth for a long time, but modern floss can be traced back to the early 1800s. This was the first time regular use of waxed silken thread was recommended to help keep teeth free of cavities. By the 1900s, using string floss to clean between teeth was commonplace, but as silk became harder to obtain, nylon became the primary material used to create floss.

It actually does not matter whether you floss first or brush your teeth first. What matters is that you are effectively brushing and flossing twice a day. Both brushing and flossing help remove plaque and food particles from your teeth, preventing the buildup of tartar and eventual tooth decay, so staying consistent will help keep your smile healthy regardless of the order.

Water flossers use a stream of water to help remove debris and plaque from your teeth, acting similarly to traditional string floss. If you have trouble flossing by hand or have a restoration that is difficult to clean (such as a bridge), a water flosser could be a helpful addition to your dental hygiene routine.

Since the first day of spring is quickly approaching, you may already be experiencing symptoms of seasonal allergies, such as a runny nose, stuffy sinuses, and dry mouth, but you also might start to notice tooth pain. When the sinuses are filled with mucus, the pressure builds up and starts to push against your top molars, which can result in tooth pain.

Teeth can discolor for many reasons, such as injury, medication, smoking, or food, and while some types of discoloration can be corrected with a teeth whitening treatment, others cannot. To learn more about teeth whitening, contact our office today, and we can help you determine what options are best for your smile.

Knowing the symptoms of oral cancer can better the chances of early detection, which results in more effective treatment. Symptoms of oral cancer include: red or white patches, sores that won’t heal, difficulty chewing and swallowing, loose teeth, jaw pain, and numbness. If you notice any of these symptoms or other unusual changes to your mouth that will not go away, contact our office as soon as possible.
