The Routine Smile Exam
Good For More Than Just Your Teeth!
When you visit our office for that routine smile exam, our team does a lot more than just probe for cavities. In addition to caring for your teeth, we’re giving you the next best thing to a complete physical examination. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen your family physician, it just could prove a lifesaver!
How’s that possible? Your mouth is a unique meeting place of teeth, skin, muscle, fluids, and germs. It gives us the chance to look inside your body without using a knife. Over forty serious diseases, including bulimia, tumors, and AIDS, can be detected in the mouth. The texture, color, and condition of your tongue and gums can be evidence of high blood pressure or osteoporosis.
That’s why we encourage you to make at least two dental appointments every year, especially if you don’t get annual physical examinations.
We’re here to make sure your teeth stay in great shape. Along with the rest of your body.
