A BRANCH OF MEDICINE THAT IS INVOLVED IN THE STUDY, DIAGNOSIS, PREVENTION, AND TREATMENT OF DISEASES, AND CONDITIONS OF THE ORAL CAVITY.
The simple answer is that wellness dentistry is a health conscious approach to your dental concerns.
Wellness Dentistry focuses on the patient’s overall health. Dr. Shields takes into account the often overlooked impact of hidden dental infection on a patient’s entire health. Here at Dr. Shields office we make it a priority to individualize your dental treatment based on your overall health needs.
Complete dental examination consists of:
- Thorough medical and dental review
- Digital radiographs of the teeth and supporting structures. Digital x-rays produce much less radiation
- Periodontal Evaluation (to determine the health of your gums and if you have any bone loss.)
- Head and neck exam, including TMJ examination
- Complete oral soft tissue examination. The American Cancer Society recommends this exam yearly!
Dr. Shields believes that good overall health begins in your mouth with the health of your teeth and gums. We offer a full range of dentistry for adults and children. Additionally, we offer services that improve and maintain your oral health and overall health.
