Did you know that your teeth aren’t bones? While the two may look similar, they are actually very different. Your tooth enamel is much harder than your bones, but it doesn’t contain any living cells. This means that while a broken bone can heal itself over time, you’ll need to visit a dentist to repair a broken tooth!

To escape the summer heat, many families choose to spend their days cooling off in the pool. Whether you frequent your community pool or the one in your backyard, it is important to remember that chlorine can break down your enamel after prolonged exposure, resulting in unsightly stains. Therefore, make sure you and your family keep your mouth closed while swimming and rinse with clean water shortly after.

When you bite down, you exert about 200 pounds of pressure. This is essential to breaking down hard foods, like apples or peanut brittle. However, this immense force can be damaging if you grind your teeth at night or accidentally bite down on your tongue while playing sports. That’s why getting a custom mouthguard from your dentist is so important!

Is your tongue no longer pink? If a white, filmy layer has collected on the surface, first rinse your mouth with clean water to remove debris, like food particles. From there, use your toothbrush or a tongue scraper to gently clean your tongue from back to front. Make sure to do so multiple times and from different angles for maximum effectiveness.

Our Story

Patients who choose Abington Family Dental Care for all their dental needs will receive excellent care from one of our two experts: Dr. Michael Thomas or Dr. Priya Gopinathan. As an endodontist with a Doctor of Dental Science degree, Dr. Thomas began practicing in Abington in 1979 after completing his dental degree at Georgetown University School of Dentistry. He went on to Boston University to receive his Advanced Graduate Studies in Endodontics in 1982.

In addition to Dr. Thomas’ skills and expert knowledge, we are proud to have Dr. Priya Gopinathan serve as Abington Family Dental Care’s general dentist. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Medicine in 2000 before completing her residency at the ABSM Institute of Dental Sciences & Government Medical College.

We are pleased to provide a wide range of comprehensive services to patients of all ages all under one roof. By providing preventive care for both children and adults as well as restorative, cosmetic, family, and emergency dentistry, we can improve a person’s teeth and gums and reduce the risk of additional problems developing later on in life. We also offer more complex treatments and services, including root canal therapy, sleep apnea therapy, wisdom teeth extraction, oral surgery, and sedation dentistry.

Our practice uses the latest in technology, ensuring that you receive the highest level of quality dental care possible. Not only are we equipped with digital x-rays that emit 90% less radiation than traditional devices, but we also use intraoral cameras that make it easier and quicker to discover dental issues. It also makes it possible to better explain an individual problem, as the handheld camera produces a live image that is transferred onto a screen for you to see.
