Enjoy Long-Term Dental Health With Comprehensive Care

Our general dental services keep decay, disease, and infection at bay. These services include:

  • Dental Exams We’ll assess your dental health and help you fully understand your smile goals. Technology such as our Spectra cavity detector and digital X-rays allows us to detect dental problems early so you can treat them early. We also screen you for signs of oral cancer.
  • Dental Cleanings – Remove troublesome plaque and tartar from your teeth.
  • Gum Disease Treatment Restore your gum health with our deep cleaning procedures.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Our team will help you relieve this painful condition, which puts you at greater risk for cavities.
  • Saliva Testing We use saliva testing to spot early signs of gum disease.
  • Perio Checkup Your dentist will ensure your gums are in good health.
  • Halitosis Treatment – We can determine and treat the underlying cause of bad breath.
  • Custom Mouthguards – Our locally made mouthguards will protect your teeth during athletic activities, or you can wear one at night to prevent teeth grinding.

Many dental practices offer fluoride applications and dental sealants as a regular part of preventive dental care for children. At River Oaks Dental Care, we offer them for adults, too. The anti-decay benefits of these treatments don’t stop when you get a driver’s license!

Dr. Parker will perform a risk assessment to help determine how susceptible you are to tooth decay. For those at risk, we use sealants and fluoride to strengthen and protect your teeth. Sealants are used on back teeth (molars) and other tough-to-clean areas.

You can also trust that we take you and your family’s health and safety seriously. We have stringent cleanliness and safety standards, so you can feel at ease at our practice.
