Did You Know Your Dentist Has ‘Secret Powers’?

March 29, 2024

You probably associate your routine visits to our friendly family dentist at Rifai Dental Group with a thorough cleaning and exam, reminders about brushing and flossing, and hopefully only the occasional filling. And while providing top-notch oral care to you and your family is the cornerstone of what we do, our expertise goes “beyond fillings and flossing.”

Here are a few examples of the lesser-known skills we possess that help safeguard our patients’ health.

  • We believe oral health is connected with overall well-being, which is why we’re on the lookout for signs of conditions like diabetes or heart disease when we conduct our comprehensive oral examination.
  • The National Cancer Institute highlights the role dentists play in the early detection of oral cancer, which is crucial for successfully treating this potentially life-threatening disease. That’s why our routine checkup includes a cancer screening of the entire mouth.
  • Dentists can help diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, which affects millions of people across the U.S. Left untreated, chronic sleep apnea can lead to heart, kidney, and other serious health complications.
  • Dentists have extensive training in the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the head and neck that allows us to diagnose and manage a number of health conditions beyond just your teeth.
  • The field of dentistry is always evolving, as are the needs of our patients. That’s why we maintain a strong commitment to continuing our education and training on the latest advancements in diagnosis, treatments and technology.

During your next visit to our friendly dentist at Rifai Dental Group, you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a highly trained professional dedicated to your overall health. The mouth is the gateway to the body, and your dentist is the first line of defense when it comes to protecting your well-being. We’re looking forward to seeing you, so please contact us today for an appointment!
