Dental Cleanings & Exams

Professional cleanings are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist at Thurston Oaks Dental will:
•  Remove tartar from teeth surfaces.
•  Remove plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth.
•  Remove surface stains from teeth through polishing.

Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Our dentists will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.

Periodontal Therapy


Regular examinations, by your Vancouver dentist, help issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:
•  Visual tooth decay evaluation.
•  Visual gum disease examination.
•  Gum Disease screening.
•  Oral Cancer screening.
•  Gum pocket measurement and tracking.
•  X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues

Regular examinations by a dentist are very important for your health. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." - Benjamin Franklin

X-rays (Radiographs)

Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Dr. Snodgrass can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries.

X-rays are primarily used to detect:
•  Teeth that are still coming in
•  Internal tooth decay
•  Impacted teeth
•  Cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth)
•  Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous
