About Our Portland, OR Dental Office
Your teeth give you the ability to eat your favorite foods, speak your mind, and express yourself with a confident smile, and Dr. Russ Teasdale is ready to make sure they stay strong and healthy for decades to come. A dentist with nearly 40 years of experience, he combines personalized, one-on-one attention with the latest dental techniques and technology in our downtown Portland practice. Whether you want a place to get your checkups and cleanings, have a few teeth in need of repair/replacing, or you need help with chronic jaw pain and headaches, you’ll only experience the best care and service here at Advanced Dental Arts NW.
We Treat Everyone Like Family
Too many modern-day dental practices treat their patients like a bunch of numbers, forcing someone to sit in the waiting room past their scheduled time before rushing them through an appointment and recommending all kinds of services they don’t really need. Here at Advanced Dental Arts NW, we’ll earn your trust by taking the time to explain things so you’re always in the driver’s seat when it comes to your care. Your treatments will be performed with a gentle touch to ensure you consistently have a comfortable experience.
Modern, Relaxing Atmosphere
Our beautiful dental office combines the best of what’s old and what’s new. We have plenty of state-of-the-art technology, like intraoral cameras and digital X-rays, but our practice is also warm and inviting. Large windows fill our spacious treatment rooms with natural light, and you’ll even find original Dr. Seuss artwork on the walls. Between our serene surroundings and friendly team, a trip to the dentist has never been so relaxing.
Free On-Site Parking
You don’t need us to tell you that parking can be a nightmare downtown, and for many people, it’s enough to make them avoid going to the dentist entirely! Fortunately, our practice has its own FREE on-site parking. Now, you won’t have to waste time searching for a spot three blocks away to take care of your teeth. Whenever you need to see us, we’ll basically have a space reserved just for you.
TMJ/TMD Therapy Available
Your bite is often the most neglected part of your dental care. Yet, it is potentially the most destructive. That’s because poorly aligned teeth can trigger the muscles to act in self-destructive ways. So it is vitally important to make certain the bite is always right.
Long term forces applied by your jaw muscles can literally move mountains. They can also break or chip teeth, cause migraines, gum and bone problems, and destroy nerves. They can cause ice water sensitivity, move teeth out of alignment, cause discoloration, and destroy porcelain restorations. They can even threaten your very life by causing obstructive sleep apnea.
At Advanced Dental Arts NW, we are able to use computers and EMGs to fine tune your bite so that the muscles are happy and healthy, enabling them to work when they need to and spend the rest of the time completely relaxed. Does that sound great or what? And, we are the only dental office in the Portland area with the equipment and know-how to accurately adjust your chewing.
