We offer the following preventive care services at our Vancouver, WA dental office:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
The periodontium (gums and surrounding bone) provides the basis for healthy teeth. We closely examine the health of the tissue around each tooth and determine the maintenance interval that is specific to you to keep your gums in optimal health. We will also provide you with a thorough cleaning. Due to the length of your initial visit, we often schedule this portion on the following visit.
Your first visit exam includes:
- Radiographic Exam
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Head and Neck Exam
- Functional Occlusion Exam
- Soft Tissue Exam
- Airway Exam
- Tooth by Tooth Exam
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, you could be suffering from migraines, earaches, and even malocclusion. Our team fabricates custom nightguards to stop the grinding and keep your teeth intact and healthy. As you use the nightguard, our team will continue to monitor your bite to ensure that no orthodontic problems arise in the future.
Mouthguards For Athletics
Do you or your child frequently play sports? Whether you participate in softball on the odd weekend or you are a competitive cyclist, it's important that you take care of your teeth while you're winning medals! We make custom mouthguards that are comfortable and designed to protect the teeth from potential damage. Even better, they reduce the risk of concussions, too!
Treatments & Applications
During your preventive care and dental cleaning appointment, our team will examine your teeth and ask you plenty of questions about your smile. If we discover that your teeth could use a little extra help, we may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
- Teeth-strengthening mineral application
- Desensitizing treatment
- Halitosis (bad breath) treatment
