The mouth is full of bacteria that produce a sticky substance called plaque. Plaque sticks to the teeth and if not cleaned well regularly, this sticky substance inflames the gums around the teeth and forms spaces, called pockets. Plaque and bacteria can become trapped within these pockets and harden into tartar over time. Only a professional cleaning can remove this tartar to prevent future bone and tooth loss.
A scaling and root planing procedure is the procedure that removes this plaque and tartar build up from underneath the gums. Multiple anesthetic (numbing) options are available for patients who have sensitive gums. After the cleaning, patients can develop mild sensitivity that may persist for a few days after the procedure. while the gum tissues are regenerating. In most cases your dentist will schedule a follow up visit after this procedure to check how your gums have healed after the scaling and root planing was completed.
As a family dentist in Battle Ground, Daybreak Dental is your one-stop dental clinic for the whole family. Our wide-range of services cover the needs of all ages, whether it’s a child’s first cleaning or your grandmother’s professional denture whitening.
We help young children get comfortable with the dentist.
We believe in creating a positive dental experience for children to prevent future adult dental phobics. Fun roll playing, show and tell technique are both incorporated to into their appointments. We also offer review home care tips we used for our kids to help maintain their oral health.
A lot of kids are scared of going to the dentist. We know that all of the strange-looking machines and unusual noises can be frightening for children. That’s why we do whatever we can to calm down young ones and answer their questions calmly and informatively. If the patient is calm and submissive to dental procedures, it’s easier and less stressful for both them and us, and that goes double for kids!
Daybreak Dental’s custom crowns are micro engineered to restore badly damaged or fractured teeth. Our crowns are specifically designed to strengthen the tooth structure that remains and prevent further breakdown from occurring. Dental crowns can be made from several different materials, the most common being white porcelain zirconia. We take pride in our work and want to provide you with the most esthetic restoration possible, so we take an additional step with every crown and provide a custom shade selection at no extra charge to you. This ensures a seamless color transition so your crown looks identical to your natural teeth. During the cementation appointment your dentist will take several steps to ensure that your new crown fits your tooth perfectly. These additional processes ensure that our crowns will last longer, not cause gum disease, and will be more resistant to decay than crowns that have not been properly seated. Once the crown is seated fully our doctors use precision materials and instruments to adjust the bite to ensure better adaptation of the new crown to your mouth, which prevents jaw and muscle pain.
Premature tooth loss can be both a functional and esthetic problem. To treat this, our dentists utilize the latest technology available to place and restore dental implants to replace one or multiple teeth. A dental implant is a biocompatible titanium “screw” that is surgically placed into the jaw bone and self integrates with the bone. This implant serves as the structural support for a prosthetic tooth to be placed on top.
A dental implant is the best option for a missing tooth as it supports the remaining teeth, underlying jawbone, and facial structures and allows you to eat the foods you enjoy.
Root canal therapy is a procedure that allows your dentist to save natural teeth. Teeth that have deep cavities are often painful as the cavity bacteria infects the pulp, or nerve, of the tooth. This can create pain, infection, and a health risk to the patient. When pain and infection occurs, your dentist is often able to save your natural tooth by completing a root canal procedure. This is a procedure that removes the infected bacterial-laden pulp and fills the area with a sterile material that prevents the pain and infection from returning. This allows the patient to have a healthy, pain-free, natural smile!
Laser gum treatments are less invasive, non-surgical ways to promote healing and treat harmful disease-causing bacteria that cause damage to the bone surrounding the teeth. The laser not only kills the bacteria in the area but it also stimulates healthy tissue proliferation. This procedure is very comfortable and is usually done without the need for injections and numbing. Our patients have greatly benefitted from this non-surgical option and we are proud to offer it in our office.
Bioclear is one of the newest restorative techniques in dentistry, and our dentists at Daybreak Dental are two of only a small handful of Bioclear-certified dentists in the state of Washington. Bioclear is a novel method of removing the infected portion of a tooth that spares the surrounding tooth enamel, resulting in the need for less drilling. This technique can be used to treat spaces between teeth as well as build up larger areas that have been lost due to cavities or fractures. This technique preserves your natural tooth and decreases the risk for root canal treatment. Our patients also have less post-op sensitivity and can keep their natural teeth longer.
We offer several options of teeth whitening to fit every patient and budget. These options include in-office laser bleaching, conventional bleaching, and custom molded trays that can be taken home. As every patient is different, we recommend patients meet and discuss their bleaching desires with their dentist so the best option can be selected to achieve the best esthetic result.
A composite veneer requires little to no tooth drilling and can often be completed in only one appointment. This minimally-invasive treatment delivers enormous esthetic results. Our dentists rebuild fractured, discolored or misshapen teeth by adding composite resin in multiple tooth-colored shades to create an esthetic result that mimics your existing teeth. While most dentists utilize the traditional method of a solid- colored composite veneer, Dr. Fu has taken extensive training through the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to learn to ways to create a more natural looking cosmetic veneer using gradients of color. Only about 4% of US dentists have taken the training courses she has taken.
Clear aligners, or “invisible braces,” are nearly invisible plastic trays that fit over your teeth and exert pressure to shift mis-aligned teeth and straighten them. These aligners are commonly used for adults and older teens with mild to moderate crowding who wish to straighten their teeth without the use of metal brackets. These aligners are worn nearly the entire day and only taken out for meals. Clear aligners are comfortable and affordable, making them a great cosmetic alternative to the traditional metal braces.
