Preventive Dental Care
At Dr. Rosenbaum and Associates, we believe in treating each of our patients with the type of dental care we would want for our own families. It is our philosophy that successful dental care begins with prevention in mind. After all, stopping a problem before it starts saves you time and money!
When you come to our Modesto, CA dental office, we will evaluate your current oral health and design a preventive treatment plan with your health and your dental goals in mind.
Comprehensive Oral Evaluations
Our dental exams help us determine your current oral health and identify any potential conditions that require your attention. Drs. Forsberg, Malogan, Street, and Swanberg perform a complete evaluation of your teeth, gums, bite, and jaws and create a comprehensive preventive treatment plan based on your needs.
We look for common conditions such as decay, periodontal (gum) disease, cracked teeth, and wear so that you have the information necessary to make an informed decision about the future of your dental health.
Oral Cancer Screening
At each dental exam, we look for abnormal lesions on your tissue, tongue, and the back of your throat that may indicate signs of oral cancer. If necessary, we will recommend a biopsy to rule out oral cancer. Early detection of oral cancer increases your chances of survival. This is especially important if you use alcohol or tobacco. Age, race, and genetics also play roles in increasing your risk of oral cancer.
Your dentist is the best ally you can have in the early detection!
Professional Dental Cleanings
Even if you brush and floss regularly, you will not be able to reach the areas in between your teeth and below your gum line. Regular professional dental cleanings keep those hard-to-reach areas clean and allow us to evaluate the health of your gums. We also give you a dental polish to remove surface stains and tartar.
At each hygiene appointment, we will take measurements of your gums that help us to determine if you have periodontal disease. Because your gums should fit tightly around your teeth and create a seal, we look for areas where pocketing occurs. When you have periodontal pocketing, they can collect food particles and bacteria, which cause infection. Ultimately, gum disease puts your oral health and your overall health at risk.
Our hygienists are extremely gentle and thorough. They will work with you on treatment and home care techniques that can help eliminate your infection.
Our dental cleanings are never "one size fits all." We always design your treatment to improve and help you maintain optimum oral health. You will leave with a fresh, clean feeling that makes you smile.
