What to Expect During Your Preventive Dentistry VisitA routine exam and cleaning visit can vary depending on the patient’s current dental health and oral health history, but most people can expect the following:
- A thorough visual examination of teeth and gums, checking for signs of decay and/or gum disease
- Checking the integrity of existing dental work (such as fillings, crowns, etc.)
- Oral cancer screening
- X-rays, when needed
- Professional cleaning performed by a trained dental hygienist
- Measuring of the depth of gum pockets around the teeth to check the health of the gum tissue
Why Preventive Dental Care Services are So ImportantNo matter how consistent you are in your own oral hygiene routine, you’ll never be able to remove all the plaque and tartar that a qualified hygienist can. Overtime, that plaque and tartar buildup can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, which is why it’s so important to visit our office for routine dental exams and cleanings. Dr. Argandona will also perform an oral cancer screening during your visit. Although usually quite treatable if caught in the early stages, oral cancer can be present without any symptoms whatsoever, making regular screenings an important part of preventive dental care.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.
Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
