Inside the Smile and Dr. Michael B Smith are pleased to announce that they are celebrating more than five decades of providing dental care to residents of the Oak Lawn area. The Oak Lawn dentist maintains a professional attitude and friendly customer service to ensure that each patient and family member has the best possible dental experience. The dental team focuses on cosmetic dentistry, as well as on dental care for the entire family. Families can be scheduled in a cluster to reduce the need for complicated timing and transportation issues.
In a recent interview, Dr. Mike explained, “We have a top-notch team of dental hygiene professionals who are passionate about dental health maintenance and its impact on overall health. To maintain oral health, it is extremely important to stay up to speed on the condition of your teeth and gums, so that problems are diagnosed early. The earlier we detect dental problems, the less invasive it is to treat them and prevent more serious health challenges. Early treatment is often less expensive, too.”
“When you have regular dental care” he continued, “you can expect a number of components in dental teeth cleaning. We remove tartar and plaque above and below your gum line. We polish your teeth and apply fluoride topically. You will also receive an oral examination of the mouth, gums, tongue and tonsils. We take 360-degree X-rays annually.”
Many illnesses first appear as changes within the mouth. With that approach, the dentist performs a comprehensive oral health exam each time a patient visits for a cleaning. A visual and digital examination of lymph nodes throughout the face and neck is performed. Abnormalities, pain, or flexibility within the nodes could be markers for disease. A similar examination of lips, gums, tongue and other internal mouth surfaces follows, again looking for various signs of illness or disease. The doctor takes the time to discuss any significant change in the health history since the last regular visit.
