Dentistry Built on Relationships, Trust, and Optimal Dental Outcomes - Poulsbo's Kitsap Dental Clinic
Our Kitsap Dentists in Poulsbo, WA are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality in general and cosmetic dentistry in order to support your smile, teeth, and oral health for a lifetime. Our mouth and teeth are such a sensitive area in terms of how we are designed so it is not surprising that how we perceive our dental health has a significant impact on our psychological sense of well-being.
Our Poulsbo dentist team of dentists recognizes and respects the delicate yet complex role our mouths and teeth play in individual quality of life. This ranges from basic function (eating and speaking) to self-perception (confidence and aesthetics). Because of this intricate relationship between health and individual consciousness, our dental focus is on building strong, long-lasting relationships as an important foundation for treating each of our customers. When trust is established, then supporting one’s dental health becomes much easier. This is the ultimate goal at our dentistry family practice. Our dentists, along with our entire team, have extremely high standards for our work, and we are committed to excellence.
Our dentists work hard to provide you and your family with gentle, comprehensive dentistry in a friendly, warm atmosphere. Guests are welcome to make themselves feel at home at our cozy little office. But behind the scenes, we have invested in dentistry technologies that allow us to run more efficiently and provide better care to our dental customers. These include things like digital low dose radiation, intraoral photography, and improved communication software between guests and our clinic.
Our Dental Team Cares
Poulsbo's Kitsap Dental Clinic offers a wide range of dental services. Our dentists believe the most important service we provide is preventative in nature. There are many things we can “see” in a person’s mouth. Perhaps the two most widely seen disease states are caries (cavities/decay) and periodontal disease. Not everyone is affected to the same degree so determining one’s risk for developing these diseases must be determined. When an individual’s risk for developing disease is high, education becomes paramount.
One of the most frustrating and heartbreaking things to witness in dentistry is when the disease state is left unchecked and extensive dentistry is carried out in higher risk individuals. This combination results in:
- premature loss of restorative dental work,
- increased cost to the patient,
- unnecessary retreatment of dentistry,
- and ultimately, loss of teeth, function, and possible depression.
Our Dentists Believe
When dentistry is required, it is often inconvenient to patients when basic dental services and surgical procedures are not offered at one clinic. For this reason, you will find we offer a wide range of basic procedures available to each patient.
- In terms of a basic filling, much thought has also been placed in the types of high quality dental materials we use.
- Dentistry has a flood of new materials and technologies but as a rule, we tend to use those materials that have been most widely studied and accepted as the gold standard in research seen in dental research literature today.
- Our dentists also incorporate additional steps to help ensure longevity of our work, particularly in the backdrop of basic materials science where nothing that ‘isn’t natural’, lasts forever.
Top Questions our Patients Ask
Dental Cleaning & Checkups
Regular checkups and cleanings are an extremely important part of oral care. While a lot of people don’t think of having their teeth cleaned and checked, it’s actually extremely necessary to maintaining the integrity of a patient’s teeth, gums and overall mouth.
If your tooth has sustained damage, it needs to be repaired as soon as possible. Whether the damage is due to an accident or due to decay, having a damaged tooth can lead to serious issues if it is not properly repaired. One excellent repair option for teeth that have suffered moderate to severe damage is the placement of a dental crown.
There are some general dentistry procedures that are very common amongst children and adults alike. One of the most common restorative procedures is the placement of a dental filling.
Dental care is important for every member of your family. Because of this, it’s very important to find a great dentist for your children, as well as a great dentist for your spouse and you. A family dentist is able to provide excellent dental services for every member of your family—regardless of their age!
Oral health is important for every member of your family. Because of this, it’s very important to find a great dentist for your children, as well as a great dentist for your spouse and you. A family dentist is able to provide excellent dental services for every member of your family—regardless of their age!
Unless a person has a spouse, it can be difficult for them to know what they do in their sleep. While some people only have issues with tossing and turning, others have much more dangerous issues like bruxism and TMJ.
While in most situations dentists will do everything possible to save a tooth or teeth, sometimes the only option available is a tooth extraction procedure. There are cases, though, in which teeth are redundant, or are getting in the way of the placement of a replacement prosthetic.
Once tooth decay becomes too severe, the safety of the tooth is threatened. There is a certain point where simply clearing away the decay and placing a filling is no longer an option. The decay may have spread deeper, and the root of the tooth may be infected. In this case, root canal therapy is an option to save the tooth.
Everyone in your family needs to see a dentist. For new parents, though, the question arises of where to find the right dentist for their child. There also may come a time to move, in which a child needs to switch dentists.
If you have experienced a recent accident, or if you are experiencing severe oral pain, you may need emergency services. If this is the case, you shouldn’t wait until your general dentist is able to see you for a regularly scheduled appointment.
When you smile, you don’t want to feel self-conscious. Instead, you want to be able to smile wide without feeling worried about what others will think about your teeth and/or gums. If you don’t like the appearance of your teeth and/or gums, you should consider contacting a cosmetic dentist to design a smile that you are proud of.
An accident may occur that causes damage to a tooth, such as a chip or crack. If the damage is severe enough, more advanced procedures may need to be completed. For minor cracks, chips, discoloration and other cosmetic issues, though, a cosmetic procedure may be enough to repair the tooth.
Having a missing tooth or set of teeth can be a serious dental health issue. While many people simply think of it as a cosmetic issue (and it is partially a cosmetic issue), there are actually many other reasons to have a gap between teeth filled. Gaps between teeth can lead to disease, infections, decay and other forms of damage.
Dental implants are dental prosthetics that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. These prosthetics involve the placement of a titanium screw or metal frame below the gum line to hold false teeth in place. Implants help to replicate both the look and feel of natural teeth.
Dentures are dental prosthetics that are intended to replace a large portion or all of a patient’s teeth. These appliances are custom fitted for patients, and can often be made to look very similar to the teeth that are being replaced.
Veneers are dental prosthetics that replace a portion of a tooth that has been damaged. A porcelain veneer is a thin laminate that covers the front surface of a tooth.
Whitening your teeth includes any process that allows a patient to improve the color and shade of their teeth. This is done with either over-the-counter or professional whitening solutions and products.
