Cleaning and Prevention
Oral cancer is cancer of the mouth or throat. While some people may believe that the only patients at risk for oral cancer smoke or chew tobacco, this is not always the case.
As recommended by the American Dental Association, visiting the dentist at least every six months is a great way to ensure you keep your smile healthy and free from disease and decay.
Patients of any age and oral health condition can feel comfortable coming to us for their dental cleanings. We provide the best dental cleanings available in a non judgemental environment.
Not every dentist is equipped to work with children. At Distinctive Dentistry, Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros are trained and experienced in providing dental services to patients of all ages.
It is more important than ever for parents to ensure their children are partaking in good oral health habits that improve their smile’s health and wellness during the teen years.
Many problems that can affect the health of the smile are entirely preventable. We encourage patients of all ages to visit with their dentist regularly and educate themselves on caring for their teeth and gums between visits.

Areas of decay, or “cavities” that develop need to be treated as soon as possible once they extend into the dentin of the tooth. To do this, our dentists will remove the extent of decay and place a dental filling.
Everyone desires a beautiful, bright white smile, but certain lifestyle choices and conditions can cause staining and discoloration of the surfaces of the teeth.
Dental crowns are ceramic tooth restorations that are commonly used in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. These porcelain restorations are used to cover the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line.
Dental implants are an excellent choice for patients who have experienced tooth loss or have a tooth that is otherwise unrestorable.
Tooth loss impacts more than just the appearance of the smile. It can cause patients to experience difficulty chewing or speaking and can leave space behind that allows the remaining teeth to shift out of place.
Patients who hear the words “false teeth” often think of unsightly, fake appliances used by their grandparents. Fortunately, the area of dentistry that focuses on tooth replacement has made tremendous strides in the last decade.
Extraction and Preservation
Many different situations can arise in which a patient may need to have a permanent natural tooth removed. That may include significant damage from cavities or in preparation for implant or denture placement.
A tooth that becomes damaged or infected might cause patients to fear extraction of the tooth. Fortunately, there is another way to restore the tooth without extracting it.
When patients need minor surgical procedures, Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros may be able to assist without referring patients to other providers in the Eugene, OR area.
Sedation / Comfort
Patients with dental phobias are not alone. In fact, patients of all ages can experience a fear of dentists. The sights, sounds, and smells of a dental office can keep many patients from seeing their dentist regularly.
When you arrive at our practice, you will quickly discover that we put a strong emphasis on keeping up with the latest techniques and technology to best serve our patients.
