Therapeutic and Preventive Dentistry
Dr. Spoor was one of the first Seattle dentists to implement digital dental x-rays into his practice. Since then, we have come a long way as a leader in modern preventive dentistry and therapeutic dentistry. The goal is to prevent the need for fillings or crowns in the future.
Preventive Teeth Cleaning and Laser Gum Disease Treatments
Preventive dentistry, including dental teeth cleanings, can help you keep your mouth free of gum disease. But when periodontal disease strikes, you need proven, gentle care that helps you save your smile. Our deep cleanings and soft tissue laser therapy prevent tooth and bone loss caused by gum disease. We may even need to perform a soft tissue graft in more severe periodontitis cases. Gum disease is not just a danger to your smile – it also impacts your overall health.
TMD / TMJ Therapy
TMD or TMJ disorder is a painful condition that causes problems like:
- Chronic headaches
- Neck, shoulder and back pain
- Clicking or popping jaws
- Limited opening and closing
For 15 years, Dr. Spoor has used neuromuscular techniques and therapies to aid in TMJ muscle relaxation. He has had great success in managing chronic head and neck pain cases related to TMD.
Oral Sleep Apnea Appliances
Snoring and sleep apnea often respond well to an oral sleep appliance. Dr. Spoor will work directly with your sleep physician to analyze how to treat your sleep apnea with an oral device. Our patients find this to be an effective way to enjoy sounder, higher quality sleep at night.
Comprehensive Dental Examinations
Dr. Spoor starts every dental evaluation with the goals and needs of the patient at the forefront of his mind. Do you have specific oral health needs that need to be corrected? As Dr. Spoor examines your teeth, he creates a plan to transform them into a smile that encompasses optimal health and beauty all at the same time.
