With the amazing strides dentistry has taken in the past 50 years with dental care, treatments, and procedures, you almost wouldn’t believe that oral healthcare used to be simply aftercare. This consisted of doctors, not even official dentists, who would tend to dental care after issues had arrived. Lack of the right equipment and dental knowledge often led to tooth extractions and infections that were unnecessary.

Dr. Paul Agyekum and our dental professionals strive to provide the dental information and care you need to keep your smile for years to come. Even with diligent brushing and flossing, your smile is still at risk for decay, infections, disease, or other dental issues. The best solution for preventing these problems is seeing your dentist twice a year for a thorough cleaning and exam.

Here at Ryan-Eight Mile Family Dentistry, we do a deep cleaning of your tooth enamel and between the teeth while looking for any signs of infections. This includes an application of fluoride, removal of plaque buildup, and dental X-rays. If needed, we can give you better advice on how to care for your teeth. If you need to come in more than twice a year, we can accommodate your smile.

If you need to come to our dental office more than twice a year, our team can accommodate your needs. People who sometimes need to come in every other month is if they are at a higher risk for dental disease. This includes people who smoke, are pregnant, diabetic, have a weak immune system, or are vulnerable to gum disease. See Dr. Paul Agyekum today for a consultation or appointment by calling our office in Detroit, Michigan, at 313-891-1900.
