Dental Exams

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit.  At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will perform the following:

  • Examination of dental 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.  Vizilite screenings may also be offered.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc. to ensure the integrity of the restoration and tooth structure. 

Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by Registered Dental Hygienists.  Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.  The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.  This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

Oakland County’s Finest Hygienists

Our office is home to a wonderful, caring dental team that is dedicated to helping patients. We commit our efforts to helping patients eliminate dental issues and maintain a positive outlook on their smile. 

Routine cleanings and thorough examinations are the backbone of dentistry. We use state-of-the-art technology to digitally map patients’ entire oral structure. Dr. Madany then offers a diagnosis of any existing issues and determines suitable treatment options to assist patients in recovering from complications or maintaining a healthy smile. 

At each examination, patients undergo minimal-radiation x-rays, a periodontal examination, and a thorough oral cancer checkup. We encourage patients to ask questions or voice concerns so we know exactly what their goals are in achieving optimal oral health. 

Routine cleanings at our office are easy and comfortable. We are gentle in our approach and compassionate in our care, making sure patients are happy with every visit.

Preventive Dental Care

While we do our best at keeping up with our patients’ oral hygiene whenever they come to our office, the time between visits are where most issues start. 

A strong home care routine is a great start but to prevent common dental issues, we offer preventive measures to encourage a healthy smile. Sealants protect teeth with deep fissures from collecting food debris. Since bacteria and plaque buildup can lead to decay over time, keeping the smile protected with sealants will encourage happy teeth. 

Fluoride is an active ingredient in strengthening teeth. Our office offers fluoride treatment to give smiles a boost of strength when enamel shows signs of weakness.

Personalized Treatment, Compassionate Care

Because we use the latest in dental technology, each appointment is streamlined for comfort and convenience.

Our patients enjoy visiting their friendly neighborhood Troy dental team, where we are committed to improving oral health. We make every experience with our practice a pleasant one, ensuring patients will want to come back as soon as possible for their next visit!
