Girl smiling after a dental exam done at Madison Family Dental Associates in Madison, WI Being part of a community is one of our favorite aspects of what we do! In a community, we each have a role to play and doing our best is what makes our neighborhood a great place to live. At Madison Family Dental Associates, we provide comprehensive family dental care for patients young, and not so young. We invite you to learn more about the work we do both in the office and in our neighborhood.

When considering the mouth, it is fascinating to realize the connection it plays in our daily life. We require a lot from our mouths. We use them to express body language including a smile or a frown, we use them to verbally communicate, we use them to breathe, and we use them to consume food and drink. Along with so much use, we need to take good care of our mouths to protect it from the constant attack of disease. A study by Wisconsin’s Department of Health, as told in the report titled 2010- Burden of Oral Disease in Wisconsin, found that we have some important work to do. We need to spread the message of the importance of daily oral hygiene, along with some preventive measures, to elevate the oral health of our area.

The most common oral diseases among both adults and children are dental caries which are created by decay causing plaque and gum disease. This is why we stress the importance of preventive care.

Preventive Oral Health Care


There are steps we can take to protect your oral health before damage occurs from bacteria. Our preventive steps include:
•  Regular Dental Cleaning Visits: Having your teeth professionally cleaned reduces the incidence of decay and helps us look for symptoms of gum disease.
•  Regular Dental Exam Visits: Our goal is to catch problems before they become one. Having a yearly exam means we can hopefully catch smaller problems, or potential ones, before they do more damage.
•  Fluoride Treatment: Fluoride can be a helpful mineral in strengthening your enamel when applied appropriately. During your exam, we will look for areas of thin enamel, or boost the strength of your enamel in growing teeth with a simple treatment.
•  Dental Sealants: Dental sealants is the application of a varnish material to areas of teeth that are at higher risk of decay. We seek out crevices and overhangs in your natural enamel structure where food or debris can become trapped and place a sealant barrier to protect them.


Restorative Oral Health Care


When damage occurs we may recommend various restorative treatment options to improve the health of your teeth and gums. Some restorative treatments include:
•  Dental Fillings: The most common restoration is the removal of decay followed by restoration using a dental filling. Fillings can be completed using amalgam or porcelain composite. Depending on the extent of the damage, we may also recommend a dental crown, inlay or onlay.
•  Root Canal Therapy: When decay extends deeper into the tooth, the root and inner pulp of the tooth can become infected. To save the tooth, and protect neighboring teeth from also becoming infected, we may need to perform root canal therapy. This is the process of cleaning out the inside material of a tooth to remove the infected material and then restoring the strength of the tooth. Depending on the location of the tooth, it is often recommended to cover a tooth with a dental crown following root canal therapy.
•  Prosthodontics: Prosthodontics including a dental crown, bridge or denture is an excellent tool in restoring damaged or missing teeth. We customize your device to fit your bite and improve your oral health.
•  Dental Implants: We can rebuild the root of a missing tooth using a device known as a dental implant. An implant reestablishes connection with the jawbone and serves as an anchor for a prosthodontic. Dental implants are used in combination with a dental crown, bridge or denture. The work is customized to fit your needs.
•  Orthodontic Appliances: Part of having a healthy smile is having a healthy bite. There are multiple orthodontic devices that can be used to help. We may discuss spaces, expanders, clear aligners, retainers and braces. Improving your bite is better for your ability to chew properly and your look.


Cosmetic Dental Care


Part of having a healthy smile is having it look healthy too. There are multiple cosmetic enhancements that can elevate the look of your smile. We offer a wide range of services, some that are accomplished in one day, and some over time, but each will elevate your smile.
•  Teeth Whitening: We can professionally whiten your smile in one office visit. We use prescription strength whitening that is strengthened with laser technology. Having your teeth whitened in our office allows us more control of the outcome. We can help you have a brighter, cleaner smile.
•  Invisalign: Invisalign clear aligners are a new, modern take on traditional braces. They can be used to correct the bite of your most visible teeth including closing gaps and straightening. Invisalign is a great orthodontic device for people who would like to improve the look of their teeth while also being discreet. With no wires or brackets, Invisalign is great for professionals, and those who play sports or instruments.
•  Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are a thin porcelain shell that we permanently adhere to the face of your most visible teeth. They are a great option in improving the look, shape and coloring of your teeth fast. Veneers can be used to hide chips, cracks, discoloration and more. We can use them to give a more even appearance, fill in gaps, and perfect your look.
