How can my dentist find illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes?
Your dentist doesn't diagnose these conditions but is an important screening person in your health care team. The lips, tongue, gums, salivary glands, and oral tissues can warn of trouble in your overall health.
During your routine dental check-up, Dr. Gladnick will be on the lookout for any symptoms that might be associated with conditions like oral cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and pregnancy complications. Always remember the adage: "Want a healthy body, start with a healthy mouth."
