At My Bloomingdale Dentist Office, we offer comprehensive dental exams to ensure your oral health is in optimal condition. During these exams, we go beyond routine checkups to provide a thorough assessment of your dental well-being.
Early Detection for Better Health:
Our commitment to your well-being extends beyond just your teeth. During every comprehensive exam, we screen for oral cancer and gum disease. Early detection is key to successful treatment, and our experienced dentists are dedicated to identifying and addressing any issues as early as possible.
Beyond Teeth: Detecting Health Conditions:
Did you know that your dental health can offer valuable insights into your overall well-being? Our experienced dentist, Dr. Henry Kim, understands the importance of oral health as an indicator of various medical conditions.
Osteoporosis: We can often identify signs of osteoporosis before they manifest in other parts of your body.
Dementia: Declining oral hygiene can be an early indicator of dementia, and we are trained to recognize these signs.
Eating Disorders: Conditions like bleeding gums and dry mouth can be associated with eating disorders, and our experienced dentist can help spot these issues.
Your Well-Being Matters:
Regular dental check-ups are not only about your teeth; they are also essential for your overall health. Many systemic conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular and lung diseases, cancers, and pregnancy complications, can affect your dental health. Our commitment to your well-being means that we keep a watchful eye on these potential indicators during your visits.
Early Detection of Various Conditions:
In addition to those mentioned above, we are vigilant for signs of other conditions such as epilepsy, hemophilia, leukemia, malignant melanoma, night-time reflux, and tuberculosis. As dental technology advances, routine saliva tests may soon aid in the early diagnosis of conditions like Alzheimer's disease, mumps, and measles.
If you've experienced any discomfort, pain, or concerns about your teeth or mouth, we urge you to reach out to us. Dr. Henry Kim and our caring team are here to provide the highest quality dental care and to ensure your overall well-being.
