Preventive Dental Care

Preventive Dental Care

In Round Rock, TX

Preventive dental care is the act of preventing dental issues by regularly planning professional cleanings and examinations. It’s easy to fall into the line of thinking that as long as your teeth don’t hurt or look bad, then everything is ok. We hear and unfortunately see this all the time from patients who put off getting the dental care that they need for years. You might be surprised to find out that you will save yourself a lot of money, time, and stress down the road when you get routine preventative examinations from your Round Rock dentist, Dr. Louk.

Our mission at Rock Ridge Family Dentistry is to give each and every patient a beautiful smile that functions just as well as it looks. The best way to keep your smile intact is routine dental examinations every 6 months. Two dental appointments a year is a small price to pay for a lifetime of quality dental health! Dr. Louk and his team provide quality preventative dental care for patients both young and old, so we hope to see you soon!

Routine Cleanings

In Round Rock, TX

The American Dental Association recommends everyone to have a routine preventative examination every 6 months. One of the main benefits of these exams are professional and thorough teeth cleanings. Habitual brushing a flossing twice a day is an excellent way to keep your smile healthy, but sometimes you aren’t able to reach certain areas as well as you’d like, and plaque places a hold. Preventive dental care can be achieved through regular cleanings and examinations. While we clean your teeth, we make sure to reach every nook and cranny so that every surface is equally cleaned. We also clean around the gum lines and in between each and every tooth to ensure your smile will be squeaky clean when we are through!

Comprehensive Preventative Examinations

It’s not easy to look at the inside of your own mouth. Even if you were able to adjust your mirror at home for a good look, most people wouldn’t know what they are really looking at! When we examine you, Dr. Louk’s professionally trained eye has a keen sense of understanding in the way everything is supposed to work together and function. When something is not quite right, he will be able to pinpoint the problem area and diagnose a treatment to fix the issue before it turns into something major down the road.

Digital X-Rays

Sometimes problems can lurk inside our teeth that are undetectable to the naked eye. For 100% accuracy, Dr. Louk will have digital X-rays taken of your mouth to locate any issues that may arise. Digial X-rays emit 80 – 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them safe for most people and children. Your oral health will be examined inside and out!

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is highly treatable as long as it is found early. If you are concerned or merely curious about oral cancer, ask Dr. Louk to perform a screening. During this screening he will carefully examine your mouth, gums, tongue, cheeks, jaw, and neck for any signs of abnormalities. Having an oral cancer screening will give you peace of mind to know that everything is healthy and as it should be!

We look forward to taking care of your smile.
