At ASK Dental Group we realize that every great smile starts with a healthy foundation. That’s why Dr. Khou focuses on preventive, comprehensive and minimally invasive dentistry.
As a former adjunct faculty at Midwestern University School of Dental Medicine and current clinical instructor at USC School of Dentistry, Dr. Khou focuses on the use of highly researched dental materials and products to control the oral environment not only to restore teeth to form and function but to also prevent disease from occurring in the oral cavity.
CaMBRA (Caries Management by Risk Assessment) uses research which measures the bacterial load, and contributory factors, and is able to effectively help patients fight caries and the subsequent cavitation.
We offer preventive treatments such as regular cleanings and tooth sealants. Dental sealant is a treatment where a plastic material is placed on the top surface (chewing surface) of a tooth and blocks the entrance of bacteria and plaque into the pits and fissures of your healthy tooth. Dental Sealants prevent the development of dental caries. Dental sealants can only be placed on the chewing surfaces of teeth that are healthy.
