As your Jacksonville, Florida dentist Dr. Tiffany Shields promotes oral health because the condition of your mouth is tightly linked to the condition of your body overall. Dr. Shields performs a wellness exam on patients in order to individualize dental treatment based on overall health needs. A complete dental examination by Dr. Shields includes:
- Thorough medical and dental review.
- Digital radiographs of the teeth and supporting structures. (Digital X-rays produce less radiation)
- Periodontal evaluation in order to determine the health of your gums and look for bone loss.
- Head and neck exam, including a TMJ examination.
- Complete oral soft tissue exam, recommended yearly by the American Cancer Association.
If you are looking to improve your overall health, there’s no better place to start than with your oral health. Schedule your wellness exam at Smiles by Shields today!
