Don’t believe everything you read. People have been offering that advice for centuries—because it’s true. Take for example the recent study claiming that flossing is ineffective. At Complete Dental Care, Drs. Kostas and Cardarelli see the effects of not flossing in patients who have chronic tooth decay and gum disease. Therefore, your dentist in Burlington is sticking by the American Dental Association’s recommendation to floss at least once a day.

A group of dentists and dental researchers more than a century ago determined that regular dental visits were the only way to improve oral health in America. At the time, more soldiers were unable to enlist and serve in World War I because of poor oral health than any other medical concern. While the shift took decades, today, most general dentists focus their practice on regular, preventive dentistry visits to maintain oral health. This may seem second nature, but in 1914, this was a revolutionary change. People sought dental care only when pain was unbearable, and the resulting treatment options were significantly limited due to the advanced stage of oral health issues. At Complete Dental Care, we encourage patients to make twice a year dental visits part of their oral hygiene routine.

Missing teeth can stand between you and a healthy, happier smile. We all want to look our best, and our teeth are no different. Missing teeth can be a confidence killer, but there is hope with dental implants from Dr. James P. Kostas at Complete Dental Care in Burlington, MA.
Implant Dentistry Overview
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. Losing teeth can be a drag and a confidence killer. Dental implants provide patients with the strength and stability to eat all the foods you love without struggling to chew. In addition, dental implants stimulate and maintain the jaw bone, thus avoiding bone loss and helping to preserve facial features. Dental implants in Burlington are getting the expert treatment.
Common tooth-loss factors:
- Tooth decay
- Root canal failure
- Large cavities
- Dental injuries
- Gum disease (Periodontitis)
- Trauma to the mouth (tooth injury)
- Excessive wear and tear
- Congenital defects
Implant dentistry services:
- Quality, proven, reliable procedures
- Exam and X-Rays
- Placement of dental implants
- Restoration to final results
The benefits to having dental implant dentistry are many including properly aligning your bite, natural-looking teeth, better oral health, bone loss prevention and so much more. Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods, improved speech and more. Your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance and improve your quality of life.
The best cosmetic dentist in Burlington is Dr. Kostas – period. We can give you the smile you deserve! Some of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services include cosmetic bonding, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers. Cosmetic dentistry is important not only for your teeth and gums, but in the way you carry yourself. How your teeth look can have a huge effect on your confidence and how you interact with people. Having a bright smile is a powerful mood booster. Did you know that smiling often has many physical benefits like lowering blood pressure and improving your immune system? See how Dr. Kostas and his staff can improve your smile using the latest cosmetic dentistry procedures.
