Helping your family maintain excellent oral health is easy and stress-free when you keep up with preventive visits to our Modesto dental office. At Smiles for Miles we offer a comprehensive preventive program, which includes teeth cleanings, examinations, oral cancer screenings and treatments designed to help protect your smile against dental disease. We personalize care to meet the needs of patients of all ages, and help your family feel at ease throughout every checkup.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help manage the buildup of a sticky film called plaque, which harbors harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. While brushing and flossing each day are vital to your oral health, plaque can gather in areas between your teeth and gums that are too difficult for your toothbrush to reach. During a professional teeth cleaning, our dentist can thoroughly remove any residual plaque buildup, tartar and food debris from these difficult to reach places, and will review your home care routine, making suggestions as to how you to clean and care for your teeth most effectively between visits. To help our youngest patients establish healthy, cavity-free smiles from the start, we teach them the importance and responsibilities of proper oral hygiene and provide dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments as indicated, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For every member of your family, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of cavities, gum disease and other conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
At Smiles for Miles, we make checkups informative and engaging for you and your loved ones. When you visit our Modesto dental office for your checkup, you can expect gentle, compassionate care from a highly trained professional team. To learn more or to schedule a visit, call today.
