Oral Medicine Practitioners in Port Moody, BC
Specialists in oral medicine are trained at the intersection between dental care and general medical care. In addition to studying oral health and oral diseases, they are trained in various conditions and diseases that affect the whole body. This allows them to understand, diagnose, and treat medically-complex patients (patients who have other conditions or diseases that may interact with dental issues or dental treatments).
Care You Can Count On
Patients with cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, and cancer (to name just a few conditions) may require more advanced diagnosis and treatment planning to ensure their overall health is carefully considered. In turn, practitioners of oral medicine may look at how oral health conditions are contributing to general health concerns, such as cardiovascular conditions, pneumonia, and pregnancy/birth complications.
