Taking good care of your teeth and gums is an important part of life. A beautiful smile not only looks good, but it is also an indicator of your overall health. Studies have shown that systemic illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, are directly linked to oral health complications like periodontal (gum) disease. At Calapooia Family Dental, our goal is to help you maintain excellent oral health and improve your overall quality of life. Our services include preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and emergency dentistry. If you are in need of any professional dental treatment, you have come to the right place!
A large part of our practice involves family dentistry. We take great pride in treating every member of the family, from infants to grandparents! These treatments are often simple and straightforward, designed to prevent potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of professional cleaning and check-up exam. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for adults, and fluoride treatment for children. If we notice any instances of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need restorative treatment.

Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Dr. Summers will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common then you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.

In many instances, you can have your dental implant placed by Dr. Summers or Dr. Hagerty in the comfort of our office here at Calapooia Family Dental. Dental implants offer a similar structure to your natural teeth, so they look, feel, and function like real teeth. A dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.
Dental implant treatment involves several steps. After meeting with Dr. Summers or Dr. Hagerty to develop your treatment plan, an implant post will be surgically placed in your jawbone. It typically takes about six months for your implant to fuse with the bone, forming a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Next, a small connector, called an abutment, is placed on top of the implant to connect to the implant crown. Unlike a bridge, dental implants help maintain bone volume and health.

Many people are fearful or anxious about dental treatment. It even causes some people to avoid seeking dental care, putting them at increased risk for oral health problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. Sedation dentistry reduces feelings of anxiety and stress that you may associate with dental procedures. With sedation dentistry, you will feel relaxed and calm during your procedure. Drs. Summers and Hagerty are trained to offer many sedation dentistry techniques.
