Comprehensive Dental Care
in a Relaxed Environment
At Thomas Dental Center, we offer a range of comprehensive dental services to patients of all ages. Doctors F. E. Thomas and Alicia B Thomas have the skills and knowledge needed to provide every patient with the care they deserve. With a warm and welcoming environment, our patients feel comfortable and can ask any questions they may have about their dental treatment.
Services we offer include, but are not limited to:
Routine Dental Cleaning
We suggest that every patient should come in for a dental cleaning every six months or as recommended by one of our dentists, F. E. Thomas or Alicia B Thomas. During the cleaning, our team will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth leaving behind a bright and polished smile. In addition, our team educates you on how to maintain your smile and therefore your oral health between visits.
Crowns and Bridges
Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of the tooth can create more significant problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and can look unsightly. With bridges, our doctors will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.
Works in two ways:
As a topical fluoride, it helps to strengthen the patient’s teeth once they have erupted by getting into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, helping to make the teeth more resistant to decay. We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels.
Systemic fluoride strengthens teeth that have erupted, and those that are still developing under the gums. Systemic fluoride is gained from most foods and our water supply. It is also available as a supplement in drop or gel form and can be prescribed by your dentist or physician. Usually, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children up through the teen years.
When endodontic therapy is performed, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area has been disinfected, the canals of the tooth are filled with a special material to prevent from further infections and help in the healing of the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.
