At Longleaf Dentistry, we believe that having routine exams and cleanings every six months is vital to having healthy teeth and gums. A cleaning typically involves the removal of plaque and tartar from tooth surfaces, as well as a polishing to remove stains. When your cleaning is done, you’ll be flashing your pearly whites at everyone you pass.
Gum disease ranges from mild gingivitis to extensive periodontitis, and it affects many adults in the United States. If we’re able to catch it early enough, gum disease is completely reversible, but if it goes undetected or undiagnosed, it can lead to infections, tooth loss, and even an increased risk of heart disease. Our gum treatments will help protect your teeth and gums for years to come.
We use mercury-free composite materials in our dental fillings. This tooth-colored material blends in with your tooth, giving you a more natural-looking restoration. Composite fillings also require less prep work and leave behind more of your tooth’s healthy structure, which means there is less drilling involved!
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Also called “caps,” we use dental crowns to cover teeth that have been damaged or worn. Crowns not only improve the appearance of these teeth, but also give them strength and help protect against future damage. We can connect crowns to a bridge to help “bridge” the gap left by one or more missing teeth.

Start-to-Finish Dental Implants
If one or more missing teeth are getting in between you and your life, dental implants are a great way to restore your smile. Thanks to dental implants, you don’t have to suffer through once-easy tasks such as talking or eating becoming exceedingly more difficult! We offer all our implant services under one roof, which means it’s now easier than ever to bring your smile back to life.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Between their late teen and early adult years, many people will get their wisdom teeth. Depending on your mouth, these molars may or may not erupt properly. If they don’t, they could cause crowding of your other permanent teeth, or they could become impacted and infected. If, during an exam, Dr. Thomas sees that your wisdom are ready to erupt, she may recommend extraction. For the procedure, we provide relaxing sedation to keep you comfortable.
Root Canal Therapy
If you’re experiencing intense tooth or gum pain, you may have infected nerves or tissues within a tooth. Your dentist in Wake Forest, NC Dr. Thomas may recommend root canal therapy to stop your pain and save your natural tooth. During a root canal, we clean out the infected tissue, and then fill and seal the inside of your tooth to protect against future infection. Once the root canal is complete, our team will place a crown over the tooth to give is strength and guard against damage.
You’re probably thinking that a root canal is painful, but most of our patients report that the tooth pain is much worse than any discomfort they feel during the procedure. We also offer sedation to help you relax and feel comfortable.
