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
I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas and of his father before him since moving to Oxford 34 years ago. I have found Dr. Thomas and his staff to be very professional, caring and have always received excellent dental care. Dr. Thomas and his staff are friendly, and give a good assessment and treatment of any issues that need attention. I would highly recommend Dr. James Thomas.
I have been going to this detail office for the past 45 years and have always gotten the best dental care. The office is very professional and I get the best of care from those at the front desk, to the technicians, to the Dentists, Bill and Becky Thomas. What more can I ask.
This is a fantastic dental practice. Bill's dad, Jim, was such a neat professional and Bill has followed in his footsteps. I highly recommend them and even after we moved to Hamilton, we still go back there for our dental care. Mindy Davidson, hygienist, is also top notch.
I have had excellent dental care from Dr Thomas and his entire staff. They are all very caring and helpful. When you have an emergency or dental problem they are very good to get you in and help you! Highly recommend!
I have been seeing Jim Thomas and now Bill Thomas for more than 40 years. Their services are top-notch, always professional, and the entire staff treats you like a person, not necessarily a patient. I would recommend their office -- and have -- to anyone seeking dental care.
