Head & Neck Exams in Bellevue, TN

Ensuring Your Oral and Overall Health

Comprehensive Head and Neck Exams for Early Detection and Prevention

Head and neck exams are a crucial component of your dental checkup, providing valuable insights into your oral and overall health. At our dental practice, Dr. Bob Wilson conducts thorough head and neck exams to screen for potential issues, such as oral cancer, temporomandibular joint disorders, and other abnormalities. Early detection and intervention can help ensure the best possible outcomes and prevent more severe health complications.

What to Expect During a Head and Neck Exam

During a head and neck exam, Dr. Wilson will visually and manually examine your face, neck, jaw, and oral cavity. He will check for any signs of swelling, asymmetry, or abnormalities in the skin or tissues. The examination also includes a thorough assessment of your lymph nodes, salivary glands, temporomandibular joints, and an oral cancer screening. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to identify any potential issues and recommend appropriate treatment or referral, if necessary.

The Importance of Regular Head and Neck Exams

Regular head and neck exams are essential for maintaining your oral and overall health. These exams can help detect potential issues, such as oral cancer, at an early stage when treatment is more likely to be successful. Additionally, the examination can identify other issues that may impact your daily life, such as temporomandibular joint disorders, which can cause pain and discomfort when left untreated. Regular head and neck exams contribute to a proactive approach to your health and well-being.
