Cleaning and Prevention
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations to help ensure teeth and existing dental work is maintained and well cared for.
Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers
Dr. Thomas makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth however in some cases removable dental prostheses are required to restore multiple missing teeth. These can be full dentures which replace all teeth or partial dentures which replace multiple missing teeth.
Dr. Thomas makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.
A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. The implant replaces the missing tooth root, which will serve as the foundation for a new tooth crown.
Among the causes for periodontal (gum) disease are genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal maintenance involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline.
Whitening options are available. Please speak with Dr. Thomas and he can discuss the best option for you.
