Dentistry for the Whole Family
Tigard, OR

Smiling family after visiting their Tigard dentist at Lisa Gitelson, DMD.Taking care of your mouth is important. Whether you have a young child or a teenager, you are a young adult or a senior, oral care is crucial. Not only do you need to take care of your mouth every day at home, but professional care is important as well. At Lisa Gitelson, DMD, we can provide effective dental care for every generation.

Cleanings and Exams

The American Dental Association recommends that you, and all other members of your family, from young children to seniors, have your teeth professionally cleaned and examined every six months. Cleanings are performed to help you remove all buildup from every surface of your teeth, including those surfaces that you might not be able to access properly at home. These cleanings, in conjunction with your home care routine, help to prevent the development of serious oral health issues.

Dental exams, typically performed in the same appointments as your cleanings, are done to detect the presence of oral health issues in their earliest stages. Most oral health issues do not present any noticeable symptoms early on. By the time you notice any symptoms, the condition has often progressed into something more serious. We can detect the early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and more. By detecting issues early, we can provide the treatment you need to restore your oral health, preventing the need for more invasive, more expensive, treatments later on.

Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an important part of your oral health record. These images allow us to see the hidden areas of your mouth, including between your teeth and under your gums. We can spot cavities between your teeth, see root damage, monitor your jawbone, and more. In younger patients, X-rays are also important for monitoring the development of their teeth and jaws. With X-rays, we can get the complete picture of your mouth, which can help us to provide you and your family with the best oral care possible.

Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for the prevention of serious oral health issues. There are several components to your oral hygiene. A good portion of your oral hygiene takes place in the home. This care includes brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day. Also, part of maintaining good oral hygiene is keeping up with your regular oral cleanings and exams. We can help you, and the other members of your family, to develop good habits so that you can keep your mouths happy and healthy.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is a serious condition that affects not only your gums but your teeth and their supporting structures as well. Without treatment, gum disease can also affect your whole-body health as well, causing complications such as respiratory issues, heart disease, and diabetes. Gum disease can cause gum recession, loose teeth, infections, and even tooth loss. It can strike patients of all ages, and even those who have had teeth replaced with dentures or implants. We can help to diagnose and treat gum disease, restoring the health of your mouth and protecting your overall health in the process.

Gum Disease Maintenance

While early-stage gum disease is relatively benign and can be reversed, the more advanced stages of this disease need to be treated as a chronic disease with a treatment protocol known as periodontal (gum) disease maintenance. If left untreated, advanced gum disease (called periodontal disease), can lead to a host of complications such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and even death. That is why we here at Lisa Gitelson, DMD provide periodontal disease maintenance to our patients with this type of severe gum infection.

Dentistry for Children

Children, just like adults, need dental care. However, their needs are different from those of adults. Going to the dentist can also be a stressful situation for younger patients. We provide the care your child needs in a safe, comfortable environment, which helps in building trust in us. We will clan and exam your child's teeth, provide preventative treatments such as sealants and flouride, cavity treatments, and early orthodontic evaluations.

No matter what your age, taking care of your mouth is essential for maintaining your oral health as well as your overall health. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call our office at (503) 985-8945 today.
