Keep Your Smile Bright With Our Care

We offer many types of general dental care services so you and your family can maintain your gorgeous smiles, including:

Dr. DeGuzman at Sierra Dental Care explains how a healthy smile can benefit you

    • Dental exams and cleanings. Helping you take good care of your teeth is our top priority. Regular checkups are a cornerstone of any good oral health routine. We’ll give you a complete dental exam plus clean plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth to keep your mouth healthy.
    • Gum disease treatment. Gum disease is caused by bacterial buildup from plaque and tartar and cannot be taken care of on your own. Our deep cleaning laser treatment will eliminate pockets of bacteria between your teeth roots and gums, allowing your gum tissue to heal faster and more completely than other traditional treatment methods.

  • Fluoride treatments and varnish. One of the most beneficial things you can do for the overall health of your teeth is strengthen them with fluoride. We offer several fluoride treatment options to help remineralize your teeth and keep your tooth enamel strong.
  • Tooth sealants. Sealants act like raincoats for your teeth, setting up a barricade between them and harmful bacteria that can cause decay.
  • Nutritional counseling. We’ll help you understand the relationship between your oral health and the foods you eat. We’ll give you advice and tips to reduce dental stains, enamel erosion, tooth decay, and more.
  • Custom athletic mouthguards. Protect your teeth and gums from injury during sports or athletic activities with a custom-fit mouthguard.
  • Dry mouth and bad breath treatment. We have safe, effective solutions for both of these chronic oral problems. Be sure to ask about treatment when you come in for your visit.

Benefits of Seeing Your General Dentist Regularly

Dr. DeGuzman speaking on the variety of services done at Sierra Dental Care
Regular visits with the dentist are a necessary part of your oral health. Our office staff members make it easy to schedule your dental care needs, and we will remind you when it’s time for your next visit. Ignoring your oral hygiene needs can lead to big problems in the future, so we’re here to help you stay on track.

It’s best to see your dentist twice a year for preventative exams and teeth cleanings. At your visit, the dentist will check your mouth, teeth and gums for any irregularities or signs of disease. If there is a sign of decay, then our dental staff will perform x-rays to make sure there are no problems. Once the dentist finds that your teeth are healthy, you’ll be cleared for a cleaning.

One of our dental hygienists will clean your teeth and remove the plaque. Removing plaque is important for your overall oral health because it creates cavities. Cleaning is also good for the health of your gums and the appearance of your teeth.

Finally, you’ll be advised on what you can do to improve your overall oral hygiene and avoid dental problems, as well as how to take care of your teeth in specific situations — such as if you use an oral appliance.

Your doctor of dental medicine can diagnose and treat all kinds of problems with your teeth, from cosmetic issues that affect your smile to more serious underlying problems. Let us be your partners in dental health! Call today at (209) 575-2400 to schedule your appointment.
