If you want to have a strong, reliable and dependable level of oral 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, our team will scrape the surfaces of your teeth to remove the plaque that resides there. This is a very important technique that helps eliminate the risks associated 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 eradicating 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 or Dr. Zachary McComb will gently examine your entire oral cavity with the use of dental tools and digital X-rays. First, they will use the tools to visually examine your teeth, gums and jaw, and then they will take X-rays of your mouth and closely evaluate the images. This is a very important examination, because it gives our dentists the chance to identify and treat any dental issues before they become serious.
