Regular checkups at Art Dentistry Center can help you and your family achieve optimal oral health. Our friendly and highly trained team are fully committed to offering high-quality preventive care to patients of all ages and every stage of care. We offer full examinations, professional cleanings, digital X-rays and oral cancer screenings to patients.
At your next appointment, our dental team will perform a thorough examination of your mouth. This will allow us to assess the overall health of your teeth, gums, tongue and surrounding tissues. We will check your teeth for signs of decay or damage, including all fillings, crowns and other dental repair work. We will also check your gums and other soft tissues for signs of infection and other health concerns.
Your exam also gives our team an opportunity to address any dental hygiene concerns for you or your child. Great oral health begins at home, and we want to teach your family the best ways the care for your teeth.
While good oral hygiene is important, every patient needs extra help to keep their smiles bright and healthy. A professional cleaning will remove any built-up plaque and other harmful debris from the surfaces of your teeth. Regular cleanings can also help your teeth stay white and your breath stay fresh between visits.
Digital X-rays are an important diagnostic tool that we use to get a complete view of your oral health. X-rays allow us to examine your teeth, tooth roots and jawbones for signs of damage, decay or other concerns hidden beneath the gumline. They can be used to help us design treatment plans and recommend procedures as needed. Compared to traditional film, digital X-rays also emit up to 90 percent less radiation.
Early detection is critical in treating oral cancer. We will perform a cancer screening of your mouth, nose, face, neck for signs and symptoms of cancer. If you have a higher risk of oral cancer due to smoking and tobacco use, alcohol use, or family history, our dentist recommends scheduling regular oral cancer screenings.
You should receive a dental cleaning at least twice per year. There are some patients who have a higher risk of a bacterial infection, which requires them to come every three or four months.
The number of times you need to visit our Madison Heights dental office can be discussed during your biannual checkups. Our team will be able to better understand your dental needs at your next visit.
At the dental check up your dental professional will check for cavities. X-rays might be taken to detect cavities between your teeth. The exam will also include a check for plaque and tartar on your teeth.
The check-up should also include a careful examination of your tongue, throat, face, head, and neck.
