Taking Out the Tooth, but Protecting the Jawbone

Many people have had a tooth extracted. For teens, it may be due to overcrowding before the placement of orthodontic devices. For others, the tooth may be overly damaged from trauma or have too much decay to save it. But Dr. Miller goes beyond simply providing the extraction. He also plans for the future of […]

Fill ’er Up

“Fill ’em up.” Now that’s something you don’t hear anymore unless you like to talk to yourself. If you’re old enough to remember asking a service station attendant to fill up your car with gas, you’re probably old enough to have a few cavities. You may know them as cavities. But officially, they’re called caries. […]


Whiter Teeth Beyond the Red Wine

No one wants stained teeth. But in Oregon, we like our lattes, our red wine, and our blackberries, and all of these tasty offerings conspire to stain our teeth. But you don’t have to swear off all the good stuff to have whiter teeth; you simply need to see Dr. Miller for our in-home whitening […]

Cleaning Beyond What You Can Do At Home

A good home dental hygiene program is critical to avoiding all sorts of dental issues. But it isn’t a substitute for professional twice-yearly cleanings and exams with Dr. Miller and his team. If you want to get downright technical about it, the term for these cleanings is oral prophylaxis, and it’s something you need to […]


The Root Canal — Is It Safe?

Root canal. There we said it. Wait, don’t run from the room screaming. If the ever-helpful root canal were any more misunderstood, it would be right in there with quantum physics. It’s as if too many people have seen the old movie Marathon Man, where the ex-Nazi doctor, played by Sir Lawrence Olivier drills into […]



The Trusty Toothbrush

Your toothbrush is a bristled superhero, fighting the evil attackers known as plaque and tartar day in and day out. It never gets a day off (at least hopefully not for those around you dealing with your breath), and it gets little respect. Where’s a little bit of Aretha Franklin’s R-E-S-P-E-C-T when you need it? […]


Easing the Fears with Sedation Dentistry

One of the biggest misconceptions about modern dentistry is the pain involved. Long gone are the days where procedures such as filling a cavity or addressing issues with the gums involved a degree of pain. Modern anesthesia and techniques have eliminated much of the pain of any procedure. Still, perceptions die hard, and some people […]



E-Cigarettes Damage Oral Tissue Just Like Regular Cigarettes

Everyone knows cigarette smoking is a short cut down the path to health issues affecting your lungs, your skin, your blood vessels, and even your heart. But of more concern to Dr. Miller is what cigarette smoke does to the health of your mouth. Smoking has a direct correlation with gum disease and mouth cancer. […]


Patient Testimonials

quote

I had a substantial portion of my teeth crowned to correct my bite and restore teeth 25 years prior to the recent full mouth restoration done by Dr. Miller. I had a conversation with Dr. Miller to discuss the options to correct current dental problems and to replace well-used teeth and restorations. When I made the decision to proceed, I was looking for a functional and healthy mouth. Little did I know that Dr. Miller would turn me into a ‘smile show-off’.

quote

In spite of wearing braces twice and having had a great deal of dental work done, including bonding and crowns, I was so displeased with the appearance of my teeth that I would sometimes have nightmares about them. Then my next-door neighbor started sporting this new, beautiful smile. I HAD to query him. His father, being a perfectionist, had been seeing Dr. Miller who succeeded in completely transforming his appearance!
