Dental FAQ's

Spreckels Park Dental - FAQ's in Manteca, CA

What is dentistry?

Dentistry is a medicinal specialty that focuses on the health of teeth, gums, and mouth. This consists of diagnosing, preventive work, management, and treatment of the mouth/oral health conditions.

What should I look for when choosing a dentist?

Patients should always look for a dentist that is thorough in their work and findings, and also has an informative and comforting team working behind them. You’ll find all of those attributes in Dr. Parikh, Dr. Arora, and our staff!

Why is visiting the dentist so important?

Visiting the dentist is important for a multitude of reasons, including locating and preventing any cavities to avoid extractions, maintaining good oral health, and catching any oral health issues before they worsen.

How can I maintain my oral health between visits to Spreckels Park Dental?

The best way to keep your teeth healthy is to brush and floss your teeth twice per day—every day!

Do I need to visit the dentist if I have braces?

Although having braces does include visiting a doctor who specializes in teeth, they do not provide the cleaning and treatments of teeth themselves. It’s important to visit Dr. Parikh or Dr. Arora to ensure cavities and tartar buildup are caught early and properly taken care of, both of which can be easily disregarded with braces.

What happens during my first appointment?

Your first visit to our Manteca, CA dental office consists of taking full mouth X-rays and a thorough exam of the mouth. This is usually followed by a cleaning with our hygiene team. If further treatment is required, we can schedule it, or if time allows, provide it the very same day!

What services do you provide?

Spreckels Park Dental is a comprehensive dental office providing cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, bone grafts, and dental implants. We also provide a full suite of cosmetic services, including teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding. We always cater to your needs and wants while also keeping your schedule in mind to allow treatment to be done as soon as possible!

Do you offer any specialized care?

At Spreckels Park Dental, we are a general dentist in Manteca, CA providing specialized care in dental implants, orthodontics, Invisalign and many cosmetic procedures. Unlike other offices in the Central Valley area, we also use concentrated growth factor (CGF) and Autologous fibrin Glue (AFG). While this technology is now getting more attention and adapted, we have been using this technology since 2016. We have very little postoperative pain, infection, or swelling after surgical or dental implant procedures if we have used this to heal. We always aim to provide the best and most efficient forms of treatment for our patients.
