I had a standard teeth cleaning this past week with one of Dr. Anderson's experienced hygienists. Dr. Anderson inspected my teeth for cavities as he normally does, while also taking note of the fact that i have extensive wear from bruxation (teeth grinding/clenching). He took extensive time to discuss options, while also setting aside a few hours of his time on a scheduled morning off (just two days later), to come in to diligently and carefully rebuild the back of my worn teeth. He had the tremendous assistance of another well trained and friendly hygienist. I would highly recommend Dr. Anderson, as he was very customer service oriented and exhibited a lot of knowledge. His sense of humor sure did help ease the tension, too.

Borgwardt, Ryan N, DDS
I thought Dr. Ryan Borgwardt was very personable, he even joked around a little before my extractions. Agree with the comment from Alyson P. that the wait time seems extra long getting in to a room. And a tad long in the procedure room before Doc comes in but not as bad as the main waiting room. Like many medical offices they probably overbook. But Dr. Borgwardt himself I give a high score.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
