Our Comprehensive Dental Services Include:

Periodontal Services

Though your mouth may feel healthy and you may not have any symptoms, periodontal disease can progress without a patient knowing. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the supporting bones in your mouth. Early treatment and prevention is so important!

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or has suffered from advanced decay and cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns cover the remaining tooth and restore its function, strength, and aesthetics.

Dental Exam

When you come in for a clinical exam, or routine check up, your dentist will take a look at the overall health of your mouth and teeth and diagnose any problem areas. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!

Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)

Root canal therapy is needed when a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth.

Regular checkups with your dentist helps to avoid and prevent the need for endodontic therapy. But once the pulp has become infected, it must be treated to avoid further issues since it cannot heal by itself.

Pediatric Dentistry

Children of all ages are welcome at Dr. Thomas A. Bowles & Associates! A good rule of thumb for a child’s first dental visit is as soon as their first tooth erupts, bring them in. That way, your child can have positive first experiences at a young age and the parent can get valuable advice in helping care for their child’s teeth.

Dentures & Partials

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays are a great preventive, diagnostic tool that provides important information not visible during a routine dental exam. Our dental team will utilize this important information to safely and accurately detect any dental abnormalities and create an accurate treatment plan.

Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are used to restore a tooth that is moderately damaged due to decay, large broken-down fillings, or fractures. They are the ideal restoration when a tooth requires more than a filling, but does not require the full coverage of a crown.

iTero Scanner

Say goodbye to traditional putty impressions! With our iTero Digital Impressions system, we can provide accurate digital scans in minutes. The accuracy and detail of this scan is like upgrading from standard definition TV to HDTV for your smile – the perfect picture every time. Candidates who need Invisalign aligners also have an innovative solution that produces results without any discomfort or invasiveness. Let us help you upgrade your dental health today with iTero Digital Impression technology!

Fluoride Treatment

We highly recommend fluoride treatments for your teeth. It’s a simple and quick process and can be done during your routine exam. Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay and is applied to your teeth. This strengthens the enamel so your smile will be as strong as ever.

Porcelain Veneers

A Porcelain Veneer is a very thin piece of porcelain that is custom-fit your tooth, and then bonded to your natural tooth. Veneers improve the aesthetics of a tooth (cosmetic veneer) or protect a damaged tooth surface (restorative veneer).


Sealants are an efficient and successful method for preventing decay on the biting surfaces of teeth. They are primarily placed on the permanent molars as they erupt in a child’s mouth. The sealants are maintained throughout childhood and can last well into adulthood.

Teeth Whitening

Achieve the pearly white smile you have been dreaming about with fast, safe, and effective in-office teeth whitening. Our office offers two options for teeth whitening. Both options will give you a whiter smile.

Composite Filling

When a tooth is affected by decay, fractures, or cracks, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth. In a single dental appointment, the decayed or injured tooth will be removed, cleaned, and filled.

Laser Dentistry

Our office utilizes laser technology which involves specialized instruments that produce intense concentrated beams of light. The heat energy created from the light helps in a variety of dental procedures, reduces bleeding, and reduces pain and swelling.


An extraction is when a patient has a tooth removed. Extractions are performed for a variety of reasons, such as tooth decay, impacted, or problematic teeth.

For the extraction, our dental team will use local anesthetic to numb the area of the tooth that is going to be removed. Should you have several teeth that are going to be extracted, our dentist will use a general anesthetic and you will be sedated during the entire procedure.

Implant Restoration

When it comes to the placement and restoration of implants, our team is the one to trust to get the job done right and help maintain your beautiful smile. At Dr. Thomas Bowles and Dr. Garrett Karow, we specialize in implant restoration which allows us to replace any missing teeth or dentures. The dental implant is a permanent solution that looks and acts just like a natural tooth.

Dental emergencies can be very frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is generally required to alleviate pain and ensure the patient’s oral and overall health. If you’re dealing with a dental emergency, call us immediately at 941-923-3545 and we will schedule you in as soon as possible.
