Preventive Dentistry & Care

While general dentistry works to clean and care for your teeth, preventative dentistry focuses on stopping problems before they start. The goal for these types of treatments is to prevent the formation of cavities and tooth decay. However, River Oak Dental also offers important oral cancer screenings as well.

What is Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry involves processes that prevent the formation of cavities, tooth decay, and other problems. These processes include professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, oral cancer screenings, and more. While at River Oak Dental we like to see you at least twice a year, it’s important to continue preventative care at home. This include brushing and flossing regularly.

River Oak Dental Offers an Oral Cancer Screening with Every Dental Exam

Unfortunately, due to the rise in HPV (Human Papillomavirus) occurrences, the incidences of oral cancer have increased by 300%. That’s why all of our dental exams come with an oral cancer screening. This process is completely painless, non-invasive, and doesn’t require much time. During your visit to River Oak Dental, we will complete a visual and physical exam of the entire oral cavity as well as your nose and throat.

This was one of the best dental experiences I have had. I haven’t been to the dentist in years due to health issues so I was so nervous as to what they would find. Dr. Marshall and her whole staff made me feel so comfortable and just at peace during my visit. She is very thorough and put my mind at ease with everything. Thank you for being such an amazing office!
