Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which may include the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth. This visit also involves obtaining your medical history. When you share your medical history, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health, including if you have experienced a recent hospitalization, surgery, or illness. Inform us about the names, doses, and frequency of any medications that you are taking - whether precription or over-the-counter products - as well as the name of your medical doctor. And of course, always inform us of any other changes in your health or medications that may not have been covered. All of this information will help Our Dental Team select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
Regular Checkups We encourage regular checkups for individuals that are age four and up. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months so that Dr. Thomas can:
- Check for problems that you might not see or feel
- Find early signs of decay
- Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by our dental team. During your oral examination, Dr. Thomas checks the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, Dr. Thomas also checks your old fillings and restorations because the constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
Regular checkup appointments typically take 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, pleasy notify us immediately.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Read More...

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter.

Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
