Doctor Brian Miller Talks about Dental Cleanings and Exams
Cleaning exams are very beneficial A because that’s establishing your health guidelines. As we know more and more about the oral systemic root, the bacteria in the mouth starts in the mouth and goes through the body. A healthy mouth tends to really help with a healthy body. The exam, one of the best things about exam is A, I get to check your teeth and B, we can do an oral cancer screening. Not a lot of people like to talk about oral cancer, but it’s important. We look for certain things and if we do see lesions, we follow up on them and again, if a referral is needed, we send you for referral. So it’s good to come see the dentist, establish that basic general health care system. Hygienists are great, so we have two sets of eyes going through and doing that exam.
