The Importance of Dental Exams and Cleanings
Having oral exams and cleanings twice a year enables you to be proactive about maintaining the health of your smile. A comprehensive oral exam at James W. Thomas, DDS, INC enables Drs. Becky or Bill Thomas to study the inside of the mouth for cavities, periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other issues that may be harming your dental and general health. A professional cleaning uses medical-grade tools to remove tartar and plaque that has built up and then polishes the enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. We are pleased to offer pediatric care as well so we can help your child understand the importance of an oral hygiene routine. Dental exams are often carried out during routine teeth cleaning visits so make an appointment at our Oxford, OH office today.
What to Expect During A Dental Exam and Cleaning
Oral exams at our Oxford, OH office begin with an assessment of your health history. We can also review any dental issues or cosmetic concerns you have with your smile to learn more about your overall dental wellness. At certain routine check-ins, a series of digital x-rays may be performed to give us more knowledge on the health of your enamel and jawbone. For dental cleanings, we start by using an ultrasonic device to break apart bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Next, handheld devices, like a curette or scaler, will be used to remove the smaller pieces. Once your teeth are clean, your enamel will be polished to remove stains.
James W. Thomas, DDS, INC Reviews
The Thomas family is a top notch dental practice! Every patient is treated with the upmost care, sensitivity, and given the best dental care that I have ever encountered. You are not a account number there, you are a well treated "guest"
My family has been going to Dr Thomas for at least 20 years now. I have recommended him to friends and they have all been happy with the entire staff. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else for my dental care.
Dr Thomas and all of his staff are great to work with and they provide excellent dental care.
Caring, concerned, and complete dental care. Wonderful team.
Not only does my dental team provide me with excellent dental care the team is concerned with my health and how my teeth impact my overall health. Great and professional care.
