General Dentistry | Proactively Maintaining Your Oral Health

At Madison Dentistry, we offer a variety of general dentistry services to meet the needs of our patients of all ages. We believe that a strong dental foundation is of the utmost importance, and we love helping our patients achieve that healthy foundation that they need.

Our general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures alike are intended to address issues that arise due to poor oral hygiene. By regularly visiting Dr. Wessell for exams and cleanings, you can reduce the chance that you will need procedures later on.

If you haven’t been to see a dentist in the past six months, we encourage you to contact our office today. We will ensure that your visit is comfortable and that your smile is healthy.

Preventative Care

Even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque can still develop around the gum line. When left to fester, plaque can develop into gum disease, halitosis, and tooth loss. If you would like to protect your smile and oral hygiene, we would be pleased to help with gentle preventative measures.

One of the cornerstones of general dentistry is a regular dental cleaning. Professional cleanings ensure that the teeth are adequately maintained and free from bacteria.

Dental checkups are also critical in the prevention of tooth decay, gum erosion, misalignment, and tooth breakage. Dr. Wessell will evaluate your dental health and determine whether there are any issues that need to be addressed. Dr. Wessell uses state-of-the-art x-ray technology to gather necessary information about your smile.

Tooth Extraction

You and Dr. Wessell may determine that you need a tooth extraction due to decay, periodontal disease, or breakage. If you have a tooth that is threatening the rest of your smile, rest assured that Dr. Wessell can gently extract the tooth to protect your future dental health.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are brief, comfortable assessments that could be life-saving. Dr. Wessell uses thorough visual examinations to check for signs of oral cancer during your general dentistry appointments. The fastest growing group of people with oral cancer are between the ages of 16-35, which makes it important for everyone to be visually checked for oral cancer signs each year.

Second Opinions

Dr. Wessell understands that making decisions about your oral health can be difficult sometimes. If you have received a recommendation from one dentist, but are hesitant to follow through, please feel free to schedule a consultation at our practice.

Dr. Wessell would be more than willing to offer a second opinion at absolutely no cost to the patient. He will take a conservative approach and help you decide what is best for your long-term health.
