To maintain healthy teeth, you should regularly visit your dentist. By maintaining a consistent schedule of checkups and cleanings with your dentist, you increase the likelihood of proper oral health and decrease the likelihood of cavities and dental issues down the road.

We’re proud to serve our patients and work hard to provide healthy smiles throughout Kingsport.
At your initial visit to Bateman, we’ll perform a comprehensive exam to ensure we have a good understanding of your teeth. Then, at regular check-up exams, we may perform the following:
Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Tooth decay exam: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
Existing restoration exam: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
