Regular general dentistry visits can help you prevent complicated dental treatment in the future. Our team is dedicated to treating existing gum conditions from gingivitis to more complex periodontists with the most advanced modalities like soft tissue LASERS. We provide deep cleanings to remove difficult-to-reach pockets of bacteria and take preventative measures to make sure these issues do not reoccur.

Routine preventative care can prevent gum disease, decay, and other dental conditions before they can develop. Our general dentistry team offers comprehensive checkups, screenings, and periodontal cleanings for the entire family.
Our team helps determine the best practices and products for your daily oral hygiene routine. We also offer dental sealants for added protection from bacteria and tooth decay. When needed, we can provide bio-compatible dental restorations to re-establish optimal oral health. Keep up with regular cleanings to get yourself one step closer to that perfect smile!

Types of Oral Cleaning

●    Prophylaxis Cleaning (Your Regular Teeth Cleaning)
●    Scaling and Root Planing (Also Called Deep Cleaning)

General Cleaning vs. Deep Cleaning

General dental cleanings are routine procedures that primarily focus on preventive care. They may include the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the surface of the teeth and just below the gumline. This type of cleaning is typically performed during your regular dental checkup, which should occur twice a year. The goal of a general cleaning is to maintain good oral health, prevent the development of gum disease, and keep your smile shining bright.

On the other hand, our general dentistry in Portland, OR, may recommend deep cleanings for certain patients. These intensive procedures are typically recommended when we see signs of serious gum disease or periodontitis. During a deep cleaning, a dentist or hygienist will scale the teeth to remove plaque and tartar from below the gumline and then plane the roots of the teeth to smooth them. This helps to remove bacterial toxins and makes it more difficult for bacteria to accumulate in the future.


At our dental practice, we believe that a healthy mouth is the gateway to overall wellness, and regular cleanings are a significant part of that. During a routine cleaning, dentists and hygienists remove tartar and plaque from your teeth while searching for signs of potential problems such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other health issues. Early detection of these conditions can make treatment more effective and less invasive.

Poor oral health has been linked to serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent these issues, making them an essential part of your preventive health care routine.

And remember, professional cleanings reach areas that regular brushing and flossing at home simply can't. It's hard to cover every aspect of your mouth when cleaning, so letting an expert handle the job every 6 months makes a real difference!


Our general dentists have received extensive training in airway-focused orthodontic treatment that expands the volume in the mouth for more tongue room and improved breathing or swallowing functions. They work with you to give you the confidence-boosting smile that you deserve, plus a boost in your overall health by making breathing and swallowing more comfortable. People will often think that they cannot do anything about their severe tooth crowding or small jaw size without invasive surgical procedures — but they would be wrong!
We are among a few dental offices nationwide that offer Epigenetic orthodontic treatment protocols that can actually remodel the jaw bones and stimulate proper jaw development and growth without surgery.

As an alternative to traditional metal braces, our office provides Invisalign®, Clear Correct®, Candid Pro®, SPARK®, and Suresimile® with VPro vibration frequency technology to provide orthodontic treatment.


With many patients suffering from dental anxiety or about to undergo a lengthy procedure, you may benefit from our safe, effective sedation options. Aesthetic Smiles' approach to dentistry has transformed patient comfort during dental procedures. We offer both Nitrous oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation to ensure you remain at ease during treatment at our office.

Patients who have avoided dental visits for years can receive the vital care they need for a healthy smile through sedation. We also offer soothing music, warm neck pillows, and blankets to naturally take the body to a relaxed, meditative stage.

Is Sedation Right for Me?

Sedation can transform your dental experience. But how do you know if it's right for you? Here are some types of people who could best take advantage of sedation dentistry:

●    Fearful Patients: If you experience severe dental anxiety or fear, sedation can provide a calm, stress-free experience.

●    Patients with Low Pain Threshold: If you're sensitive to pain, sedation can ensure your comfort during procedures.

●    Patients with Strong Gag Reflex: Sedation can help control the gag reflex, making dental procedures more comfortable.

●    Patients Needing Extensive Work: If you require a large amount of dental work or lengthy procedures, sedation can allow for more work to be done in fewer appointments.

●    Children or Individuals with Special Needs: Sedation can be beneficial for young children or individuals with special needs who might have difficulty sitting still for a full dental procedure.

Fluoride and Sealants

At our dental practice in Portland, OR, we offer comprehensive fluoride and sealant services designed to protect your teeth and enhance your oral health.

Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen the enamel — the outermost layer of your teeth. It aids in preventing cavities by making your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in your mouth. Our professional fluoride treatments provide a higher concentration than what's found in toothpaste or mouth rinses, offering optimal protection against cavities.

Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). These sealants quickly bond into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel. By blocking out bacteria and food, dental sealants prevent decay and cavities from forming on these vulnerable surfaces of your teeth.

When to Consider These Treatments

●    Children and Teenagers: As soon as the first permanent back teeth (molars) come in, it's best to seal them. The same goes for the second set of permanent molars that usually come in during the early teen years. Fluoride treatments can begin as soon as baby teeth erupt.

●    Adults Without Decay or Fillings: Adults can benefit from sealants on healthy teeth. It's never too late to protect your teeth against decay.

●    Individuals Prone to Cavities: If you're prone to cavities, fluoride treatments can give your teeth extra protection.

When Should You See Our Dedicated Team of General Dentists?

Think it's time to see the dentist? You should be in here every 6 months for your regular cleanings. But if you need an extra nudge to get up and schedule an appointment, we've got you covered. Give our general dentistry services in Portland, OR, a call if you're experiencing the following:

●    Toothache: Persistent tooth pain is a clear signal that something's not right. Whether it's a cavity, an infection, or gum disease, we can diagnose and treat the problem to alleviate your discomfort.

●    Sensitive Teeth: If you're feeling a sharp sting while consuming hot or cold foods and beverages, it may be due to tooth sensitivity. It can be a sign of a cracked tooth, receding gums, or even a cavity.

●    Bleeding or Sore Gums: Bleeding after brushing, flossing, or persistent gum soreness can be early signs of gum disease. Early detection and treatment can prevent more serious problems down the line.

●    Bad Breath: Chronic bad breath, also known as halitosis, could be a sign of underlying dental issues such as gum disease or cavities.

●    Jaw Pain or Clicking: Regular jaw pain or a clicking sound when you open or close your mouth could indicate temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Our team can provide treatments to manage this condition effectively.

●    Changes in Mouth or Lips: Any noticeable changes such as patches, sores that don't heal, or changes in the color or texture of your mouth or lips should be evaluated immediately. These could be early signs of oral cancer.

●    Difficulty Chewing or Swallowing: If you're having trouble chewing or swallowing, it could be due to various dental issues, including tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer.
