If you want to have a strong, reliable, and dependable health, we strongly suggest coming into Turlock Dental Care every six months for a professional dental exam and cleaning in Turlock, California.
During this meeting, your dentist or hygienist will scrape the surfaces of your teeth to remove the plaque that resides there. This is a very important technique that eliminates the risks associate with gum disease and periodontal disease. Next, we will wash, rinse, floss, and polish your teeth. This is a great way to clean all of the hard-to-reach areas in the mouth as well as eradicate any bacteria or infections that could cause major problems in the future. To finish the cleaning, we will provide a fluoride treatment that will be in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam. We will then place the fluoride into your mouth and ask you to wait for a few minutes. During this time, the fluoride minerals will soak into your teeth and replace the minerals your teeth lose every day. When the time passes by, we will remove the fluoride and rinse your mouth with water.
After your cleaning is completed, Dr. Robert A. McCulla will gently examine your entire oral cavity with the use of dental tools and digital x-rays. First, he will use the tools to visually examine your teeth, gums, and jaw, and then he will take x-rays of your mouth and will closely evaluate the images. This is a very beneficial examination because it gives your dentist the chance to identify and treat any dental issues that can or cannot by identified with the naked eye.
