At Zwahlen & Marshall Family Dentistry, we provide personalized preventive care for patients of all ages, helping you and your loved ones maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. We recommend bringing your family in twice a year for Modesto teeth cleaning, examinations, oral cancer screenings and protective treatments to help prevent dental disease. Our compassionate team of professionals is dedicated to your care and comfort, keeping you informed and at ease, to make 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 the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that harbors the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. While brushing and flossing are of the utmost importance, plaque can still gather in spots too difficult for your toothbrush to reach, which is why we recommend visiting us for a checkup and Modesto teeth cleaning twice a year. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque, tartar and debris from the toughest to reach spots. We’ll discuss with you your oral hygiene habits and make suggestions on how you can better clean and care for your teeth between checkups. For our pediatric patients, we also offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, we’ll provide a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. With periodic checkups, our highly skilled dentist can diagnose tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems from their outset, which allows us to deliver the most straightforward course of care.
With biannual Modesto teeth cleanings and examination, you are taking important steps towards maintaining excellent oral health throughout your life. At Zwahlen & Marshall Family Dentistry, we make checkups informative and engaging for the whole family. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
