WHERE TIGARD SMILES WITH CONFIDENCE
Restore your smile with implants and dentures.
Both implants and dentures offer solutions to replace missing teeth. Dentures are used to replace a full set of teeth either on your upper or lower arch, or when all-natural teeth are lost or damaged. Dental implants are an ideal way to replace a single tooth but may be used to fix a non-removable denture to. Ask Dr. Hayden about fixed dentures if you have traditional dentures, or your dentures are ill-fitting or worn out.
Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.
Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth. Learn more about dental implants and dentures on our implants and dentures page.
DR. HAYDEN AND DR. ROSE GENUINELY CARE
Crowns and bridges repair damaged teeth.
Our goal is to meld artistry and technology to restore your damaged teeth with porcelain crowns and bridges. A dental crown or cap completely encases the tooth needing restoration. Depending on your needs, a crown may be used to enhance the tooth’s size and shape for the best appearance. Bridges repair a gap where a missing tooth lies. A better alternative to a bridge is the use of a dental implant.
Dental crowns and bridges are a great choice for major tooth problems caused by accidents, disease, or wear and tear. The material most-used for these restorations is high-grade porcelain which is tooth-colored and has many of the same properties as your natural tooth. Porcelain restorations are a long-term solution for the replacement of a missing tooth or repairing a damaged tooth.
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING TOOTH PAIN?
When do you need a root canal?
If you’re suffering from cold or hot sensitivity, tooth pain, have a visible tooth injury, swelling of the tooth, or pain in the gums, please call us immediately so we can help you!
A root canal is one of the most common procedures completed outside routine maintenance that’s done with over 14 million completed each year. The root canal treatment preserves the tooth while removing infection in the root of the tooth. Once a root canal is done, typically a crown is made to protect the tooth.
Often, a root canal is performed by a specialist called an endodontist who we’ll refer you to. The endodontist will perform the root canal and we’ll then take over the restoration to make the new crown to protect your tooth. In general endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.
TIRED OF GOOPY IMPRESSIONS?
Hayden Dental Care uses goop-free scanning.
If you’ve had an impression of your teeth or jaw area done in the past, you probably remember that goopy substance that made you gag. Dr. Hayden knows how yucky that stuff is and doesn’t want to put his patients through that so he invested in a 3Shape TRIOS® handheld oral scanner.
The TRIOS scanner is widely recognized as the best on the market and unparalleled at creating quality scans for clear braces, crowns, retainers, night guards, and more without the goop!
TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS IN TIGARD
Mercury-free fillings for health and beauty.
Dr. Hayden and Dr. Rose are capable of replacing aging metal fillings with tooth-colored restorations (onlays). There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations besides just looking beautiful and natural. Resin is bonded to teeth and helps to retain tooth structure, wears like the natural tooth, and can be used in cases where the natural tooth structure has been lost to a large degree.
The common silver filling contains mercury. Our practice uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.
Silver (or mercury amalgam) fillings can wear down at the edges, break or split and since they’re a different material entirely from the tooth, they expand and contract at a different rate than the tooth. They can corrode and leak causing staining in your teeth and silver fillings to contain 50% mercury which of course is a toxin incompatible with your body. If you’re concerned about the health risks of your mercury fillings, please request an appointment.
