Regular Checkups in

While brushing and flossing your teeth at home is very important, it sometimes isn’t enough. In order to maintain optimal oral health, it is essential to receive regular dental checkups at least twice per year.

Regular Dental Checkups in Dumont

Only with a professional examination and cleaning can we check for any problems or issues that may have developed and then provide any necessary treatment. We encourage all of our patients to visit us at least twice per year for this purpose. After their visit, the patient will know exactly where they stand in terms of their oral health, and they will enjoy a much cleaner and fresher mouth for many months to follow.

At Madison Family Dental, all of our regular checkups include a full examination, a professional cleaning, an oral cancer screening, cavity detection using DiagnoDent, and when necessary, traditional or digital X-rays.

  • Full Examination: The full examination provides us with the best opportunity to get a complete look at the patient’s teeth and mouth. This detailed process provides us with the best assessment of the patient’s current oral health. We can then make any necessary recommendations for the patient based on our findings.
  • Professional Cleaning: This type of cleaning provides greater attention to detail and more thoroughness than what is possible with at-home brushing and flossing. We use special dental tools to scrape away tartar and plaque. We then cleanse and polish the teeth to eliminate surface stains and to provide the patient with a feeling of oral cleanliness until their next visit.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: Oral cancer is a serious condition. This best way to treat this disease is to catch it as early as possible. That is why we take the time to provide an oral cancer screening during every complete dental checkup. This screening includes checking the patient’s tongue, face, gums, throat and soft oral tissues for any signs or symptoms of cancer.
  • DiagnoDent Cavity Detection: DiagnoDent is a leader in the dental community for its innovations in the early detection of cavities and tooth decay. The advanced technology of DiagnoDent makes use of cutting-edge lasers to scan a patient’s teeth and check for any interior decay or deterioration. These lasers can also scan the gums for any signs of periodontitis, also known as gum disease.
  • Digital and Traditional X-Rays: Through the use of X-rays, we are able to get a detailed look at the hidden areas inside a patient’s mouth. Many oral health conditions can only be properly detected in this manner. Some of the oral health conditions that are commonly detected using X-rays include tooth decay, gum disease, jawbone deterioration, oral cysts and cancer.
