Visiting our Modesto dental office twice a year for teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings can help you and your loved ones enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles throughout your lives. And Zwahlen & Marshall Family Dentistry, we utilize advanced technology and methods to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health. Our compassionate professional team keeps you and your loved ones informed and at ease, making every checkup a positive, worry-free experience.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against a sticky bacterial film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth, and can cause tooth decay and gum disease. To complement your daily oral hygiene routine, it’s also important to visit our Modesto dental office twice a year for checkups and professional teeth cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also take the time to review your oral hygiene routine and teach you how to brush and floss more effectively. For our youngest patients, we make every checkup informative and engaging, helping your child establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy, cavity-free smiles. We can also provide our pediatric patients with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which offer an added layer of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital imaging technology, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems from their outset, when they are easiest to treat.
At Zwahlen & Marshall Family Dentistry, we focus on prevention and on early detection and intervention to keep your teeth healthy from the start. Our dentist in Modesto provides personalized preventive care for patients of all ages. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
