Dental Cleanings in Knoxville
Promoting Overall Health by Maintaining Dental Health
Has it been a while since you had a dental cleaning? Regular cleanings and preventive care offer benefits for your oral health, as well as your general health. Dr. Phillips and the experienced team at Family Dentistry of Knoxville offer comprehensive dental care for patients of all ages. We provide cleanings in Knoxville for every member of your family in a relaxed and caring environment.
The Link Between Oral & Overall Health
Medical studies have demonstrated a link between dental health and overall health and wellness. One University of North Carolina study showed that patients with severe gum disease are twice as likely to suffer fatal heart attacks. In addition, the bacteria and inflammation associated with gum disease and poor oral health may contribute to conditions such as endocarditis, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Diligent brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings can prevent gum disease and associated problems.
Comprehensive Dental Cleanings & Exams
For most patients, two dental cleanings per year are recommended. During your cleaning, we will make sure that all plaque and tartar are removed, both above and below the gum line. You will be advised about proper home care to maintain oral hygiene and promote healthy teeth and gums. Regular cleaning also allows our dentist to identify and correct any potential problems, while they are still easier to fix.
Our office is equipped with advanced dental technologies, such as:
- Digital x-rays
- Intraoral cameras
- Digital imaging
- Televisions in all operatories
- Digital Panex to assess jaw bone density, TMJ, and oral cancer
In addition to teeth cleanings in Knoxville, we offer a full range of dental services to restore and maintain your dental health. When further treatment is needed, we use advanced dental technologies and a minimally invasive approach to restore your dental health and help support the health of the whole body.
