While brushing and flossing your teeth is very important to your dental health, it is also imperative that you visit your dentist regularly. Dr. Nicholas Kondon and our team recommend that you and your child come in for a professional dental cleaning in Concord, Massachusetts, at least twice a year. These appointments allow our hygienist to thoroughly clean your teeth and for our dentist to examine your gums and teeth for any issues or potential issues.

Dental Cleaning
When you visit our office, your appointment will begin with a thorough cleaning, or prophylaxis. Our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from all surfaces of the teeth. Your teeth will also be polished. Dental fluoride may be applied to the teeth to strengthen the enamel against decay.

Dental Exam
Our dentist will then examine all of your teeth and your gums for signs of decay, inflammation, or other dental issues. X-rays may be taken to get a closer look at the teeth and the surrounding bone. An oral cancer exam will also be performed. Our dentist may also review and update your dental health history.

Our dentist will discuss any detected issues with you. A treatment plan will be suggested and explained. Of course, you have the final say about your oral health.

We invite you to contact our office today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
