Preventative Dentistry

Good for more than just your teeth!

When you visit our office for that routine hygiene appointment, 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 exam. Our exams consist of a thorough evaluation of the Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ), teeth and underlying bone, and soft tissue including the gingiva and facial muscles.

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 surgery. 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.
