In a report published by the American Dental Association, the average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more decayed or missing teeth. Even if it’s not noticeable, missing teeth can affect how a person chews. The remaining teeth may shift. Stated in the report is also how dental bacteria tend to cause damage to systemic health.
“For people suffering from poor dental health or missing teeth, the negative effects include jaw pain, headaches, bone loss in the mouth, and even a weakened immune system because bacteria travels into the blood stream through the mouth. Dental diseases can contribute to heart, lung and liver disease and for pregnant moms, still-born babies and pre-matured babies,” said Dr. Ben.
Concerned with bigger problems that develop overtime for those who skip regular dental examinations, Dr. Ben offers a free dental consultation, exam and X-rays. This service also provides a second opinion for those who have treatment plans suggested by another dentist and would like to get the treatment plan re-evaluated.
Implants, dentures and bridges are a few of the possible options that Dr. Ben’s office provides for missing teeth. Dr. Ben also offers 3D X-rays, which contain up to 80% less radiation, and sedation, which helps patients with a relaxed and pain-free experience while visiting the dentist.
“I believe in preservation of the tooth and try to help a patient find ways to have healthy oral conditions without unnecessary dental work,” said Dr. Ben. “With the advancement of technology, those suffering from the consequences of missing teeth can find a variety of solutions at my office for any budget!”
Zao B., a patient of Dr. Ben, expressed, “Dr. Ben is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and personable. There is no comparison to other dentists. I’ve had to have major dental work like removing bad crowns and having multiple implants along with regular cavity fillings. Dr Ben has my best interests at heart when doing the work.”
In addition to providing dental work at his office, Dr. Ben is regularly involved in the community and giving back with free dentistry in volunteering missions, participating in local charity events, and partnering with local charity Portland Rescue Mission for food drive campaigns.
