Perio Protect

We are now a Perio Protect Provider!
Oral Infection and the Immune System Gum disease is a chronic tax on the immune system. Chronic infections and inflammation of the gingival tissues make it harder for type 2 diabetics to manage blood sugar leading to inflammation in the cells lining the arteries and speeding up the progression of dementia there are so many other connections, including some cancers, ED, pulmonary diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and pregnancy complications.
Gum disease is also the number one cause of tooth loss. Research shows that continuous lack of bleeding on probing was a 98% accurate predictor of no further periodontal damage.* It’s so important to keep your teeth.

Composite Fillings

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.

Composite Resin Fills: The advantages of composite resin material for fillings over amalgam (silver/mercury) fills are substantial. For starters, less tooth structure is removed as the composite material bonds to the tooth structure unlike amalgam fills. The more tooth structure removed, the weaker the structure gets. Another benefit is less sensitivity as the composite resin helps to insulate the tooth against hot and cold. It is important to note that the initial placement of the fill may have mild sensitivity. Composite resins can also be used to fix chips and cracks in your teeth. The quick bonding, durable, and tooth-colored appearance of composite resin fillings make them ideal for repairing chips and cracks visible in the teeth.

Safe Amalgam (Mercury) Removal

Patient safety is our top priority. We are always investigating new materials, methods and technologies to deliver the safest dental experience. Let’s explore how we implement this with the removal of amalgam (mercury) fillings.

1. Isolation Combined With High-Speed Evacuation: Many practitioners may utilize a dental dam, which offers the patient protection while removing amalgam. We take it a step further using a technology called Isodry. The Isodry offers a flexible mouthpiece that acts as a bite block for patient comfort with continuous suction and isolating the field of operation. This is a safety benefit for not only the patient but the staff as well.

2. Excessive Amount of Water: The more water that is used in the removal of amalgam fills, the fewer particles that become airborne. This is essential to guard against ingestion of the fine particles.

3. Large Section Removal: The amalgam is separated into sections using a small diameter carbide drill and removed in as large of pieces as possible.

4. Activated Charcoal: Activated charcoal is lightly sprinkled in the oral cavity once the Isodry has been placed. The charcoal is helpful in absorbing and eliminating mercury that may have been inadvertently ingested during the removal process.

5. Oxygen: An optional service is having oxygen administered during the removal process with the use of a nasal cannula. The use of Oxygen ensures that the body is regulating any fumes (minimal due to the processes listed above) in the air and minimizes entry into the body.

6. Amalgam Waste Disposal: Considered hazardous waste, amalgam is handled and disposed of in accordance with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruling. The installation of certified amalgam separators demonstrating a minimum of 95% amalgam separation efficiency is used, This allows for the recycling of the material in lieu of it being discharged into the sewer system.

7. Full Body Draping: We provide disposable draping for full body, face and hair to protect against mercury vapor and particles.

8. External Oral Aerosol Vacuum: In conjunction with our Isodry technology, we also utilize an external oral vacuum that sucks up additional aerosols in the air. The ADS EOS extraoral dental suction system collects aerosols, droplets, dust, and pathogens produced during routine dental procedures through a suction mouthpiece hood. Particulate matter is filtrated by the dust/particulate filter. The HEPA filter captures particles down to 0.3 microns with 99.995% efficiency. Clean dry air is exhausted from the base cabinet.

Implant Restorations

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.

Learn more about dental crowns.

Dental Bridges

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.

Learn more about dental bridges.

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.

Learn more about inlays and onlays.

Occlusal Guards

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.
