If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $500 toward that final cost and free Vivera retainers following treatment.

At City Dental, Dr. Jason Bajuscak and his team promise compassionate dental care and a relaxed visit. To help their patients feel confident about any works that needs to be done, they maintain open communication about each procedure to help allay fears. That's only where the team's work begins. An artillery of cosmetic treatments helps each patient achieve just the smile they want, whether through teeth-whitening systems such as KöR Whitening or teeth-straightening with Invisalign. They also repair teeth with Lumineers, which, unlike porcelain veneers, are reversible and don't require grinding or shaving of teeth. Whenever emergencies arise the team also keep their doors open for same-day emergency appointments, from broken teeth to needing a hug from a professional.
Portland native Dr. Gerald T. Fujii along with Dr. Lee emphasize personalized preventative care, prioritizing treatments designed to stave off future dental problems with advanced diagnostic tools such as lasers, digital x-rays, and intraoral pictures. Fluoride treatments strengthen the enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay and keeping smiles beautiful before auditions or hours spent pressing your face against a casting director’s window. Some dentists are also certified in IV sedation and oral sedation, allowing them to help anxious patients through dental implants or root canals with no pain and no recollection. The office also offers crowns at their convenient downtown location.
