Dental Check Up

Regular preventive dental care and at least twice yearly dental checkups are important to maintain overall dental health and to prevent cavities. Burke Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides comprehensive care to ensure health teeth and gums. Dr. Lu’s experience in dentistry is coupled with genuine concern for our patients’ oral health and well being.

Dr. Lu and her caring team want all of our patients to know that the goal of preventive dental care is not to fix tooth decay after the fact, but to prevent it from occurring. Regular dental checkups are a more important aspect of oral hygiene care than most people realize, especially if you want to prevent the need for more serious dental conditions down the road. Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing, you should visit Dr. Lu at a minimum of every six months for a check up and cleaning.

As part of routine cleanings and scheduled dental check ups, Dr. Lu will clean away plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. If left untreated, this can build up, causing gum disease and other forms of tooth decay. Even if you are a diligent brusher and flosser, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach places. Once your teeth have been cleaned, they will be flossed and polished.

After your teeth have been cleaned, Dr. Lu will examine your smile for signs of cavities and other problems which left untreated can lead to serious health problems.

Regular preventive dental care with Dr. Lu is important to maintaining healthy smiles, and our Burke dental team will provide the quality scheduled care you need.
