Oral Hygiene

Oral Hygiene

Brushing our teeth is the cornerstone of a healthy mouth! At Above and Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we make it our aim to get patients who have long gone without a visit back in the chair. We know that you’ll love our experienced, gentle and supportive staff and the treatment they provide for you.

We work to motivate our patients from Battle Ground and Vancouver to establish good habits and routines of general oral care. Regular professional cleanings and checkups are the building blocks of beautiful smiles. If you are having trouble remembering when your last cleaning and exam was, it’s time to come in. We encourage you to come to meet our fantastic team and get back onto a good maintenance program.

Regular cleanings and exams are vital for protecting against oral infections like gum disease and avoiding cavities. Your systemic health is affected by your oral health providing an added benefit to regular preventative care and general dentistry. Unaddressed mouth infections can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Above and Beyond Dentistry & Implants works hard to help Battle Ground and Vancouver families achieve optimal health through regular preventative visits and care.

What to expect at your check-up

Above and Beyond pride ourselves on welcoming our patients as partners in oral health. While we will make every effort to explain the evaluation process, we encourage you to ask questions at each step of the way. The more you know about what to expect, the less anxious you will feel. Remember, this visit is for your health.

Please share with our team any concerns or changes you’ve noticed especially in the following areas:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Bad breath
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Bleeding during brushing or flossing

Coupled with our visual wellness check and information provided by you regarding your assessment of your oral health, we can create a comprehensive understanding of your oral health.

"I really enjoyed the hygienist that cleaned my teeth. She was very nice and made me feel at ease. The child care I arranged backed out at the last minute. It is so valuable to me that I was able to bring my 8-year old twins and they could watch a movie while they were waiting."

Each hygiene check-up includes the following:

  • Review of your health history (medication use, changes in systemic health, etc.)
  • Gum disease assessment
  • Bone health assessment
  • Check of existing restorations
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Home care routine review (brushing and flossing)
  • X-rays if necessary
  • Address any other concerns you may have
