Healthy smile, healthy you
General dentistry at your Hixson dentist is so important for so many reasons. Not only does the health of your mouth affect your physical appearance, confidence, and happiness, but the health of your mouth also has an impact on the health of the rest of your body. Slacking off on your oral hygiene routine or skipping visits to Dr. Conner to could lead to potential systemic health complications down the road.
Did you know that leaving gum disease untreated increases your risk of heart attack and stroke? It’s true. Neglecting general dentistry is not just about your teeth – it’s about your overall health. Our team at Signature Smiles want to remind our patients, and all Hixson residents that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Keep your defenses strong by coming to see us twice a year for cleanings and check-ups.
Our hygiene team is one of the best in Hixson – heck it’s one of the best in Tennessee – and we can’t wait to meet you and your family. We will give you a gentle and thorough cleaning that will leave your smile sparkling. Dr. Conner and the team will take X-rays and perform a thorough examination in order to document any changes, or any potential signs of disease or decay. We are happy to provide education, training, and tools for proper oral hygiene, especially for new parents who may not yet be experts on children’s dentistry.
We screen for things like gum disease, and oral cancer. If you are suffering from decay we can provide quality, durable, tooth-colored fillings that will stop it in its tracks, restore the tooth to its healthy functioning state. And the best part – no one will be able to tell you’ve had a filling! Tooth-colored fillings blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. If decay has progressed deeper into the nerve, you may require a root canal, which is a fairly quick and easy procedure with today’s advances in technology.
We also understand that coming to the dentist can be a dreadful experience for some, especially those experiencing some form of dental anxiety. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation to help our Hixson patients get the dental care they need in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
