Dental Office Blood Pressure Screening Birmingham, AL

Complete health dentists understand the oral-systemic link and implement it throughout their practice. Accordingly, they conduct a blood pressure screening during every dental visit to ensure the body is ready for treatment. A blood pressure test can reveal much about the patient’s health and well-being and may even determine whether they will undergo a dental procedure or not.

During the initial consultation appointment, a standard procedure typically involves a blood pressure check, a thorough examination of the mouth and body, a medical history review, and X-rays. By checking blood pressure every visit, we can help determine any lifestyle changes that may have a negative impact on one’s health. Patient inclusion is of high priority, and we will discuss what a patient’s screening means and how treatments will progress thereafter.

Information on dental blood pressure screenings is available at Inverness Smiles: John Aiken, DMD in Birmingham and the surrounding area. We can discuss the importance of checking blood pressure and how it affects your overall health.
