Exams & Cleanings
Good for More Than Just Your Teeth
When you visit our Dickson office for your routine check-up, our team does a lot more than just looking for cavities. In addition to caring for your teeth, we’re giving you the next best thing to a physical check-up. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen your family physician, it could prove to be a lifesaver.
How’s that possible? Your mouth is a unique combination of teeth, skin, muscle, fluids, and germs. It gives us a chance to look inside your body without surgery.
Over forty serious diseases, including bulimia, tumors, and AIDS can be detected by looking at your 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 see a dentist twice a year, especially if you don’t get annual physical examinations. We’re here to make sure your teeth and the rest of your body stay in great shape.
