Family Dentistry Treatments

Dental Exams & Cleanings

 

Dental exams and cleanings help to keep your family’s mouth and teeth healthy and can detect problems before they become serious. At Turlock Dental Care we recommend our patients visit our office for their dental exam and cleaning at least twice a year. Regular visits can prevent gum disease and decay, and avoid unnecessary dental visits in the future.

 

During our exam and teeth cleaning appointments, we carefully remove any plaque, and clean and polish your teeth. Our skilled hygienists can remove plaque and bacteria from all of the hard-to-reach areas that brushing at home can not reach. We provide a preventative fluoride treatment gel that is painted on your teeth. This helps to protect the teeth from future cavities or decay. When the cleaning is complete, our doctors will perform a detailed exam and review your digital x-rays. If treatment is needed, we will develop a customized plan that works for you, and our staff will assist in scheduling any future appointments.

Dental Sealants

 

Turlock Dental Care offers dental sealants to help protect back molars from cavities and decay. Sealants are beneficial to children and adults to help keep teeth healthy. Dental sealants can protect vulnerable areas for those that have a hard time brushing or keeping their teeth clean. Our dental sealants are made out of a thin coat of plastic and the process is easy and painless. The molars are cleaned, and the coating is gently painted onto the surface of the teeth. A light is used to cure the sealant and harden the area. Dental sealants are an easy way to protect your family’s teeth from unwanted cavities, and they provide years of protection.

Fluoride Treatment

 

Turlock Dental Care offers fluoride treatment to help strengthen your teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride is a naturally found substance in the earth, and using fluoride can help protect our teeth. Our Fluoride treatment can help keep your teeth strong and free of bacteria and decay. When you visit Turlock Dental Care for your exam and cleaning, we provide an option for fluoride treatment. During this treatment, we gently paint the fluoride on your teeth. The fluoride must sit on the teeth to allow the minerals to soak in and provide protection. Once treatment is complete, the fluoride is rinsed out and patients can return to their normal activities. Fluoride treatment is an easy way to keep your teeth healthy and can benefit the entire family.

Sports Mouthguards

 

If you play sports, protecting your mouth and smile is important. Turlock Dental Care can help you keep your teeth safe with our sports mouthguard. We offer pre-made mouthguards, boil and bite mouthguards, and custom-made mouthguards. Our custom mouthguards are made in our office and function similarly to a retainer. Mouthguards fit snug around your teeth and provide optimal protection from injury or pressure. Our doctors will evaluate your teeth and mouth, and take into account what sports you play to determine which option will work best.

 

Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding

 

If you tend to grind your teeth at night or suffer from bruxism, Turlock Dental Care provides nighttime mouthguards to prevent damage to your teeth. Our mouthguards are comfortable and effective, and allow you to sleep comfortably. Our doctors can examine your teeth and help you choose a mouthguard that can help stop damage.

 

Mouthguards Can Benefit the Following:

 

  • Patients who play any type of sport or activity where your smile is at risk of injury.
  • Patients who suffer from teeth grinding or bruxism.

 

If you think you or a family member can benefit from a mouthguard, we recommend contacting our office for a consultation. Our doctors will perform an exam, and recommend a mouthguard that will properly protect your teeth, and save you unnecessary visits to our dental office.

Tooth Fillings

 

Turlock Dental Care provides dental fillings for teeth that have decay or cavities. Our fillings are tooth-colored composite fillings that blend in with your natural teeth. Turlock Dental Care strives to provide the very best care for our patients. We do not offer amalgam fillings and are a mercury-free office. Tooth-colored fillings look natural, and patients can smile and speak in front of others without having to worry. Composite fillings are great for patients of all ages, are durable, and last for years.

Oral Cancer Screening

 

Turlock Dental Care offers the very best services including oral cancer screenings. We care about your oral and overall health, and our oral cancer screenings can detect and prevent oral cancer. We recommend regular exams and cleanings in our office at least twice a year. During our exams, we will perform an oral cancer screening to ensure all of the gum and mouth tissue looks healthy.

Our exams include an inspection of your gums, lips, tongue, and throat for any lesions or signs of cancer. We will also examine your neck and jaw for any abnormalities. Our doctors will review your health history and recommend further treatment if necessary.

 

Symptoms That May Indicate Oral Cancer:

 

  • Sores in the mouth that will not go away.
  • Red or white patches on your lips.
  • Tenderness or numbness in your lips.
  • Lump in your mouth, throat, or neck.
  • Irritated area that has crust or pus.
  • Jaw pain or tenderness.
  • Difficulty chewing, speaking, or swallowing.

 

These symptoms can be serious, and we recommend an exam right away if you have a concern. Turlock Dental Care provides quality dental care you can trust, and our services help to prevent serious issues and keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Unusual pain or sores should never be left untreated, and regular exams in our office are extremely important to identify problems and treat them in the early stages.

Periodontal Treatment

 

If you have gum disease or periodontal pockets around your teeth, Turlock Dental Care can provide periodontal treatment to help treat gum disease and shrink periodontal pockets. Gum disease progresses slowly and, in some cases, may not cause any pain. Pockets form when bacteria are lodged between the gums and the teeth. This area can get infected and be painful and inflamed. We offer treatment such as Scaling and Root Planing to deep clean underneath the gums and remove harmful bacteria and plaque. Treating gum disease can help keep your teeth sturdy and avoid tooth loss. Turlock Dental Care recommends regular exams in our office at least twice a year to keep your gums and teeth healthy, and to help treat issues early on.

 

Symptoms of Gum Disease Include:

 

  • Bleeding, swollen, or irritated gums.
  • Pain while brushing or flossing.
  • Tenderness in the mouth or jaw.
  • Pus between the teeth and gums.
  • Receding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose teeth

 

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, we recommend calling Turlock Dental Care for an exam. Our doctors have years of experience in treating gum disease and can help you address your issues before complications develop. Taking care of our oral health is extremely important, and periodontal treatment can help slow the progression of gum disease and prevent future problems.

Tooth Extractions

 

Tooth extractions are necessary when a tooth is compromised and is unable to be saved. At Turlock Dental Care your oral health is important, and our priority is always to save your natural tooth. If the tooth is severely damaged or deteriorated, and cannot be restored, we may have to resort to an extraction. The tooth extraction process is easy, and we use local anesthesia around the tooth to keep our patients comfortable and relaxed. If you suffer from dental anxiety or need additional methods of sedation, Turlock Dental Care offers multiple sedation options. Our doctors can help you choose the best option for your needs.
