General Dentistry

Good dental hygiene and detection of any problems early on can help you avoid more serious issues later, such as gum disease or tooth decay.

Regular dental cleaning and prevention can help preserve your oral health

Brushing and flossing are vital to having a healthy mouth, but no oral hygiene routine is complete without dental cleanings at least twice a year as part of a regular dental checkup. Dental cleaning is important to keep teeth clean and to help your body maintain oral health.

About General Dentistry

Our doctors use the latest dental diagnostic technology to identify and stop potential decay and damage at the earliest stages.

What is meant by Dental Cleaning and Prevention?

Taking care of your teeth and gums is critical in maintaining good oral health. When your visit your dentist for dental cleaning and prevention treatment, the doctor will examine your teeth and usually take a full set of x-rays at the same time; this will allow the doctor to see what is going on inside your gums and jaw bone.

Once completed, the doctor will evaluate the findings and put together a plan of action. This will involve you visiting the practice for regular check-ups. The treatment may include such things as:


Cleaning and polishing
Checking your gums
Screening for oral cancer
Taking X-rays
Examining existing dental work


What are the benefits of Dental Cleaning and Prevention?

Cleaning and polishing: This will remove tartar from your teeth as well as plaque, which is formed from bacteria. If left in place, inflammation will eventually occur. The hygienist will then polish your teeth, removing stains at the same time.

Evaluating your gums: Your gums and the bone underneath your teeth will be carefully checked to ensure that there are no problems or any disease developing.

X-rays: These will allow our doctors to check inside your jaw bone and teeth for such things as bone loss, developmental problems, teeth in the wrong position, tumors, abscesses and any other hidden problems.

Existing dental work: Our doctors will check all fillings, crowns, bridges, implants etc. for any damage or signs of wear and tear.

“If you're new to the Madison/Huntsville area or you're just looking for a great dentist, look no further! You have found the right doctor and the right facility with Madison Dental Care!”

– John O. from Madison, AL
By relying on digital X-rays, our doctors are able to make precise, detailed images of your teeth that are instantly accessible and offer an easy way to discuss your treatment plan and potential areas of concern. This way, the doctor's recommendations are easier to understand.

Should I get an oral cancer screening?

Did you know that thousands of people every year are diagnosed with oral cancer? This disease can be devastating and even deadly if left untreated for too long. That’s why diagnosing oral cancer in its earliest stages is so crucial to the treatment process. Someone from our team can quickly and comfortably scan for oral cancer as a part of your routine dental check up. The doctor will be looking for any tissue abnormalities that could suggest its presence.

Who should consider dental cleaning and prevention?

Everyone should consider having dental cleaning and preventative work on a regular basis. Good dental hygiene and detection of any problems early on can help you avoid more serious issues later, such as gum disease or tooth decay. This does not mean that you should not continue to take care of your teeth at home. As well as cleaning your teeth carefully you should always watch out for any signs of inflammation of the gums, damage to the teeth or possible oral disease.
