Teeth Cleanings

One of the most important general dentistry services we provide is teeth cleaning. Regular brushing and flossing are vital to maintaining good oral health, but these daily hygiene practices cannot always stop the buildup of plaque.

This is where the Future of Dentistry really shines. We use gentle techniques to clean plaque off of teeth and prevent serious oral health issues from developing. Preventing these issues also means that we can help preserve your overall health as well.

Future of Dentistry is a family dentistry practice, meaning that we are here to provide teeth cleanings for every member of your household. We can even start with your one-year-old child at a Happy Visit, which is a time we set aside to show your young child how dentistry can be fun!

Bring your family to Future of Dentistry for quality teeth cleanings and excellent preventative care.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer kills 1 person every hour of every day in the United States alone; however, it is 80 percent to 90 percent curable if diagnosed and treated early. It can be found on the floor of the mouth, cheeks, tongue, gingiva, lips, and throat.

Nearly half of oral cancer patients die within 5 years of diagnosis. Unfortunately, only 35 percent of oral cancers are diagnosed in the early stages.

At the Future of Dentistry, we do not want you or your family to join the statistics, which is why we offer oral cancer screenings.

Our dentists and hygienists are highly skilled and are equipped with the knowledge and technology to perform oral cancer screenings. In addition to our visual exam, we use the VELscope Oral Assessment System, an FDA-approved device that helps us screen more accurately for oral cancer.

VELscope

VELscope is a handheld scope that uses black-light technology to illuminate potential problem areas that might otherwise be overlooked. Our dentists and hygienists will be able to identify and evaluate abnormalities in your mouth.

Once the exam is finished, if there is evidence of lesions or other signs of oral cancer, our dentists will determine the best path for treatment.

The exam is simple, fast, and comfortable, taking less than 1 minute! As with any form of cancer, early detection is key. We can help!

Saliva Testing

With salivary testing, we can determine if you are at risk for periodontal disease or for certain HPV-related oral cancers. We can also diagnose the cause of periodontal infections. It’s a discreet diagnostic tool.

Other Preventative And General Dentistry Services

Here are some other services and procedures we offer our patients here at Future of Dentistry:

  • Cavities and fillings: We fill cavities with our mercury-free, tooth-colored resin fillings as a safe alternative to amalgam fillings. As a practice that is focused on healthy body dentistry, we are particularly proud that we can offer white fillings that will not have a negative impact on your overall health.
  • Extractions: Sometimes, to ensure your oral and general health, the best course of action is to remove an infected tooth entirely before the infection spreads. All our extractions are safely and efficiently performed in our office. As with any procedure, sedation dentistry options are available to make your extraction a soothing experience.
  • Mouthguards: preventative dentistry also means protecting your teeth and mouth. We provide sports mouth guards that are custom-fit, which helps athletes of all ages stay safe. In addition, we provide custom-fit night guards, including guards designed to alleviate headaches and sleep apnea symptoms.
    We also have a program that helps make sports mouth guards affordable and accessible to student-athletes. Our staff would be happy to discuss this program and how it helps children stay safe and healthy.
  • Sedation dentistry: Some of our patients experience intense dental anxiety, whether from traumatic childhood experiences or worries over a specific procedure. Even a simple teeth cleaning can cause stress to a patient who has extreme dental anxiety. If you are experiencing some type of dental anxiety, please ask our office about our sedation options, so we can help alleviate your stress.

For questions about any of our general dentistry services, give us a call or visit our office. We’d be happy to talk with you!

I honestly couldn’t have been more happy and satisfied with my experience with Dr.Nguyen and his assistant Olivia in the Billerica location! I had numerous fillings on my front teeth that were not done correctly by a different Doctor.They were making me feel insecure and worried about my smile, and after consulting and having my appointment with the doctor and Olivia, I feel I have a renewed lease on my smile and confidence. Dr.Nguyen made me feel very confident in his professionalism and knowledge in dentistry the moment we first spoke and through my appointment, Olivia was amazingly professional, while at the same time made me comfortable and re-assured in the whole process , it made everything so easy mentally. I cannot wait to continue using them for my cleanings and future appointments, and to recommend them to anyone I know!

I moved to Billerica and was unhappy with my prior dentist. Future of Dentistry got me in same day for an emergent toothache and was able to refer me to an oral surgeon who removed the tooth. Future of Demtistry’s reception team helped me through all the paperwork without me finding my insurance card. The entire team was happy and helpful throughout my entire experience. I’m happy to have a new dentist!!

Switched to this dentist a couple years ago and have never had a bad experience. Had a crown made, couple fillings and cleanings here. The team is great to work with and Dr. Nguyen does excellent work! The operations are well run and appointments / procedures are communicated efficiently which is refreshing. Do yourself the favor and go here for your chompah maintenance!

I went for a consultation and as soon as I walked in the decor in the office was very calm and home-like. The front desk employee, Erin I believe, was very kind and courteous making sure that I was able to get my previous dental office to get my records sent over to help my appointment go smoother. When Dr. Nguyen looked at my teeth he explained everything clearly so that I would understand exactly what they had planned for me and was even able to start my deep cleaning in that same appointment, which saved me another trip and time off from work. I appreciate all of the effort they put in to make sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Definitely the best staff I've encountered in a dental office. There were no attitudes in sight and it was a quiet and relaxed environment.

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Dr.Nguyen was caring, informative and excellent service.Highly recommend.
Can’t say enough about this place. Everyone is so nice. The office is immaculate. The waiting room is so cute, but I never actually spend time there because they run on time. Tara the hygienist is the sweetest and Dr. Nguyen is awesome too. They were great with my 2 year old as well!

I can't overstate my satisfaction with Future of Dentistry. Becoming a patient was quick and easy, and every visit has been nothing but pleasant. All of the staff are courteous, friendly, and personable. They were very helpful working with me to figure out my options for procedures and what my out-of-pocket costs would look like. As someone with a storied dental history, I'm very satisfied to have found such a great experience in my own backyard.The dental assistant, hygienist, and Dr. Nguyen are all top-notch professionals. Everyone took time to check in and make sure I was comfortable and aware of next steps throughout my visits. And at risk of sounding too hyperbolic, I left my latest appointment thinking Dr. Nguyen is an artist with the precision of a watchmaker. Both me and my fiancé are very happy with his work.If you're seeking a better dental experience, Future of Dentistry is highly recommended!

Had my first appointment here and am super happy with everything! The doctor helped me pick the best option for me and my situation. The assistant taking molds of my mouth made sure I was comfortable the whole time. Front desk staff was great with making sure they could fit me in for my next appointment and made sure it worked with my personal schedule

Future of Dentistry is an amazing hidden gem! Conveniently located with plenty of parking. This is an updated and state of the art office. Upon arrival I was greeted by the most caring and professional staff. The hygienist who did my cleaning was spectacular. I went back to complete dental work and was once again very pleased with the levels of professionalism and dedication by the Dentist and his entire team. I will recommend this practice to all my friends and family.
