General Dentistry

Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.

Preventative Dentistry  Oakdale, CA

Preventative Dentistry

It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside. To help keep your breath fresh, you should also brush your tongue. Then, you can begin flossing.

Teeth Whitening  Oakdale, CA

Teeth Whitening

A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth. Additionally, the process actually rids the teeth of plaque and tartar that tend to lead to dental problems.

Fillings  Oakdale, CA


Composite fillings act as a dentistry solution for problems such as tooth decay or cracks. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.

Root Canals  Oakdale, CA

Root Canals

Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.

Oral Cancer Screenings  Oakdale, CA

Oral Cancer Screenings

Nobody wants to hear that they may have oral cancer. Although it can be fatal, it is easier to treat the earlier it is caught. For this reason, we are proud to assist our patients with an oral cancer screening. We want to help our patients survive this often fatal disease.

Oral cancer will typically show up as white or red patches or lesions inside of your mouth. You may even notice the lesions on your tongue or on the floor of your mouth. Many people experience a hard time swallowing, bleeding in the mouth, or even swelling in your face or neck.

Sealants  Oakdale, CA


When we apply a dental sealant, we paint a plastic coating on top of your teeth. This makes your teeth smooth getting rid of the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are commonly found on teeth. It is essentially a protective coating against tooth decay and cavities.

The most common place to paint sealants is on back teeth since they are often irregular. They can also be very hard to reach, even if you brush your teeth regularly. We use it more on children though we do perform sealants on adults too!

Fluoride treatments can be completed at your routine dental appointment. They are painless and quick, taking only a few minutes. When getting treated, your dentist will apply gel, foam, or varnish on your teeth. Treatment works best if it is done one to four times a year.

You may wonder what else you need to do in addition to getting regular fluoride treatments. The American Dental Association recommends drinking fluoridated water and using a toothpaste with fluoride.

Here at River Oak Dental Spa, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest technological advances. We work diligently, advocating for early detection of cavities and gum disease.

We are proud to say that we use the Diagnodent® cavity-detection device. This device is a high-tech fluorescent laser that aids in detecting caries (cavities) in their early stages. The Diagnodent® laser works by measuring changes in tooth structure, internal and external, and is ninety percent accurate in detecting early cavities.

The Diagnodent® laser is unique and no other product performs better. You receive exact results for every tooth scanned, and it is proven to be more accurate than just visual or X-ray detection.

This procedure is pain free and preserves the teeth. The Diagnodent® device is easy to use and can detect even the smallest of lesions, which is especially useful for the deep pit and fissure areas of the tooth. There is no probing or scraping. The laser gives us a simple scan that signals the dentist with a gentle, audible alert.

By using the Diagnodent® laser, we can rest assured there is no hidden decay and head off any future potential problems, saving our patients’ tooth structures and improving their oral health.

If you have any questions about cavity detection or the Diagnodent® laser, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (209) 848-8074.

Home Care

Here at River Oak Dental Spa, we are firm believers that good dental health begins with the proper home care.

It is very important for a healthy mouth (and a beautiful smile) that you take good care of your teeth and mouth. Because we believe that a healthy mouth starts at home, we are dedicated to educating our patients on the correct way to take care of their teeth!

Proper care starts with regular teeth brushing. It is also important to change your brush regularly so it does the job that it is supposed to. Though many hate to do it, flossing and rinsing your mouth out with a good antibacterial rinse is also very important to have good dental health.

Dental care at home is not enough though. It is also important to visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups. The sooner we catch any problems, the better off you will be.

Contact us today if you are interested in setting up an examination and learning about the best way to care for your teeth.
