Safe, Effective Treatment Using the Latest Advances
Our Portland office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to make our care more precise and increase the success rate of our treatment. We capture detailed images using our digital x-ray machine without the exposure associated with conventional radiography. Not only do we use a CEREC machine to create crowns in a single visit, this same technology allows us to take impressions digitally.
When treating a patient with obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Carothers uses a pharygnometer and rhinometer to measure their airway. This medical equipment provides verifiable data that is used to create a custom-fit mandibular advancement device (MAD), taking the guesswork out of oral appliance therapy.
What to Expect When Visiting Our Portland Office
At your first visit, we make sure you have the opportunity to become acquainted with both our office and staff. Before you are brought back to see our hygienist, we welcome you to enjoy the educational videos and assortment of reading material available in our reception area as well as free, secure WiFi access for your smartphone and devices. Your comfort is our priority and we’re more than happy to accommodate your needs.
After conducting a comprehensive review of your oral health, which includes a complete periodontal charting and full-mouth set of x-rays, Dr. Carothers discusses his findings and goes over treatment recommendations with you. Our dentist uses intraoral cameras connected to patient monitors so that you can have information about your care as it happens. Once you have worked out a treatment plan with Dr. Carothers, our office manager will go over estimated benefits, our financial policy, and your financing options, as well as address any questions and concerns you may have. This ensures that there are no surprises down the line.
