Preventative Dentistry Services
- Professional hygiene visits

Periodontitis is a serious form of gum disease that can cause tooth loss and other health complications. No matter the stage of gum disease, we have the expertise and technology to restore the health and integrity of your gums and teeth. Our periodontal treatments include:
- Tooth extractions
- Root scaling & planing
- Ridge augmentation
- Crown lengthening
The health of your smile starts from the innermost layer of your teeth. Endodontic treatment addresses the area known as the pulp, as well as the soft tissues and nerves surrounding it. We understand root canal therapy and endodontic treatment can be unsettling for some patients. Keeping our patients comfortable throughout all of our treatments is of the utmost priority to us. Our endodontic treatments include:
- Root canal treatment
- Endodontic surgery
Dental surgery can be necessary to preserve your smile. We’ll guide you and answer all of your questions every step of the way. Our goal is to keep you comfortable and at ease throughout the course of your surgical procedure and your post-op care. We perform the following surgical dental procedures:
- Dental implant restorations
- Extraction site preservation
- Bone grafting
Gilmore Dental uses the latest technology for the safe removal of amalgam fills. We use the Isodry technology that removes the particulates from the air. We also have oxygen available (an additional cost) during the procedure should you opt for it.
Losing a tooth can be a life-changing event that affects your confidence and ability to speak and chew. Tooth loss can also cause gum and bone loss in the jaw and alter your facial appearance. With implant restorations, you have a permanent and restorative solution to missing teeth.
We work with the best oral surgeons in Central Oregon for your implant placement. You will return to our office to have the implant restored once healing is complete.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Now you can restore the appearance of your tooth in a single visit! With CEREC same-day dental crown technology, we can prepare, mill, and apply your dental crowns all in the same day. No more messy impressions! In one visit, you can restore the confidence you have in your smile.
Our crowns are not only aesthetically-pleasing, they are durable and restore teeth to their natural appearance and functionality. Additionally, same day crowns provide permanently sealed full coverage, reducing the risk of possible root canals from wearing a temporary.
When you have missing teeth, dental bridges provide a stable, alternative to implants or removable partials for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges are made from durable porcelain material and bridge areas where there are missing teeth.
Next to an implant, bridges provide the most normal functionality. The drawback is the contouring of adjacent teeth to act as anchors for the bridge. These teeth may be healthy teeth. Ideal treatment would be an implant so as not to have to cut the adjacent teeth. If an implant is not feasible, the bridge is a much better alternative to a partial denture.
We’ll then use our CEREC same-day milling technology to create your dental bridge – all in the same visit.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and Onlays (or “partial crowns”) are digitally fabricated to the exact shape and size of a damaged tooth.
An inlay covers the fissures, pits, and chewing surfaces between a tooth’s cusps. Inlays are often administered when a cavity is too large for a filling. An onlay covers one or both cusps of a tooth and wider areas that are decayed or damaged. Both are cemented the same day they are milled and fabricated, leaving no difference in your smile’s appearance.
Do you grind your teeth at night? You may suffer from teeth grinding if you experience the following symptoms:
- Dull headaches
- Jaw soreness
- Loose/painful/fractured teeth
- Restless sleep & daytime fatigue
An occlusal guard (or “night guard”) can protect your teeth while you sleep. We customize occlusal guards and help patients of all ages address their teeth grinding. We’ll work closely with you to develop an at-home treatment plan that enhances your relaxation and minimizes your stress and anxiety levels.
