What to Expect
It’s vital to develop a good relationship with a dentist early in life to prevent future problems. Our dentists recommends that toddlers come in for their initial exam before their first birthday. After that, most patients will schedule two meetings per year for professional cleanings and a dental exam at DentalWorks - River Oaks. These recurrent appointments are essential to prevent tartar and plaque from building up on the teeth as well as noticing signs of concern or disease promptly for more successful treatments. Other procedures and treatments, like fillings, orthodontics, and dental restorations, will be scheduled as they are needed.
Our dentists can help each person create their individual oral care strategy for their oral health, including an effective home oral care routine, regular dental exams and cleanings, restorative procedures that may be necessary, and cosmetic procedures that may be requested. During their appointment, patients can review their oral health symptoms as well as troubles about the appearance of their teeth. Our dentists will talk with each person to develop their specific oral health treatment plan at DentalWorks - River Oaks.
