Dental Cleanings and Exams
During your biannual routine dental cleaning and exam, one of our dedicated dental hygienists will clean your teeth, remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth, and floss to assess your gum health. Then one of our dentists will review the state of your current dental health by analyzing current x-rays, evaluating previous restorations, and screen for early signs of oral cancer and gum disease. Once the exam and cleaning is complete, our dedicated team will come together to provide you with an in-depth dental health treatment recommendation.
At Madison Yards Family Dentistry, we offer panoramic digital x-rays. Our office prefers the use of digital x-rays, because of their unique advantages over conventional x-rays. When compared to conventional x-rays, digital x-rays have sensors that are more comfortable for our patients, reduced radiation emissions, and provide instant digital results.
Additionally, the panoramic digital x-rays allow our dentists to assess the health of a patient’s entire mouth at once rather than isolated areas. The holistic view of the mouth produced by the panoramic digital x-ray is especially helpful when dentists are performing full-mouth restorations, planning orthodontic treatments, or screening for oral cancer. There are many reasons digital x-rays are more convenient and efficient. Discover for yourself by scheduling an appointment online today!
Custom Nightguards and Athletic Mouthguards
Did you know that experiencing tension headaches or migraines throughout the day could be symptoms related to involuntary teeth grinding while you sleep? Also known as “bruxism,” involuntary teeth grinding can significantly impact your overall health. If you are experiencing these symptoms, your local dentist can evaluate you and check your teeth for signs of grinding.
For patients who are suffering from teeth grinding or bruxism, our team can create custom-fitted nightguards to prevent the muscle contractions that cause the teeth grinding. During a routine general dentistry appointment, patients can be fitted for their custom mouthguard, so that they can start the path to better sleep.
At Madison Yards Family Dentistry, our dentists can also create custom mouthguards for the athletes out there. If you regularly participate in sports, a mouthguard is a wonderful tool for preventive dental health. These custom mouthguards protect your teeth, lips, gums and cheeks from sports-related injuries.
Diagnosis and Treatment of TMD/TMJ
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, more commonly known as TMD or TMJ, is a condition that plagues many adults. With symptoms like chronic headaches, tooth sensitivity, earaches, and persistent jaw pain or “clicking,” it is imperative that this disorder is diagnosed and treated quickly.
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, schedule an appointment today. During a general dentistry appointment, our dentists will review your symptoms, perform an exam, and assess the severity of the TMD/TMJ disorder. By taking x-rays and thoroughly examining your bite, jaw joint, and facial muscles, our dentists will assess the extent of the condition, determine the cause of the discomfort, and develop a treatment plan to soothe your aches and pain.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Preventive dental care is much more than your routine dental cleaning. With the technological advances in the dental industry, dentists are more equipped to help assess and diagnose serious dental health issues in their early stages. Maintaining your regular preventive check-ups give your dentists the opportunity clean and polish your teeth, so you keep your award-winning smile, but also perform exams to detect and diagnose serious conditions. With oral cancer, early detection is key, which is why oral cancer screenings are such an important element of preventive dental health exams.
Madison Yards Family Dentistry offers comprehensive oral cancer screenings that can help diagnose early signs of oral cancer before it becomes life-threatening. After an extensive visual examination of the gums and soft tissues, our dentists use high-tech devices and digital x-rays to detect potentially cancerous lesions and tumors before they cause symptoms.

Gum Health & Care
Maintaining healthy gums with preventive dental care is necessary. Untreated gum disease can result in the need for expensive dental care treatments and have significant impact on your overall health. It may even lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Despite the documented risks of untreated gum disease, a recent CDC report states that 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older have some form of periodontal disease.
Stay on track with your preventive dental health and maintain your general dentistry exams, so that you can avoid complications from untreated gum disease. If you’re experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease or gum disease, such as swollen and red gums that feel tender or bleed each time you floss, schedule an appointment with your local dentist today!
