We are happy to offer dental exams and cleanings in Massapequa, New York, to give you a great dental experience and dental health.
Our team at the dental practice of Nicholas Manos, DDS, PC recommends coming into our practice every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. These appointments are nothing to be afraid of, and they will end in a successful, productive manner. During these appointments, your hygienist will deeply clean your teeth. The cleaning will consist of scraping, scrubbing, rinsing, washing, flossing, and polishing your teeth. It will also include a fluoride treatment that will be provided through a foam, gel, or varnish. This technique will replace all of the lost minerals in your teeth and will help them regain strength and power. The cleaning will not be painful, but it will include small tooth vibrations and little amounts of pressure.
After the cleaning, your dentist will closely examine your mouth. X-rays could be taken and special techniques will be performed. Your dentist will check for any dental problems (like cavities, gum recession, and infection), and he will also check for any signs of oral cancer. If it is needed, he will perform special tests to identify any areas of abnormal cells in your mouth. If there are no problems found, your dentist will congratulate and praise you. If he identifies any issues, he might suggest making a follow-up appointment or he might begin treatment right away.
