Dental Services in Central Mississippi
We offer a comprehensive list of dental services to our patients, whether they have insurance or not. Our dental providers work hard to ensure you get the quality care you need in a comfortable and warm environment. Some of the more common dental services we offer include:
Preventing tooth decay can be as simple as brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day and flossing. However, tooth decay prevention can be further enforced with one of our fluoride treatments. In the event your tooth decay is causing issues for your teeth, we can provide you with the appropriate treatment needed. This may involve a root canal, a filling, or a full extraction.
Gum disease can be prevented by flossing each day. In the event you find you have gum disease, there is no reason to worry. Gum disease, like tooth decay, can be treated with a deep cleaning. This type of cleaning is more intensive than a traditional cleaning, as it removes tough to reach plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Your dental provider may also provide you with a gum disease medicated toothpaste or rinse for you to use at home.
Dental professionals recommend patients come in twice a year for a routine cleaning and once a year for a routine dental examination with X-ray films. These routine visits don’t have to put a dent in your wallet. Our patients are offered visits on a sliding fee scale, ensuring they get coverage for their dental visits and procedures, so they can live a happy and healthy life.
If you have a cavity or severe tooth decay, you may need a filling or extraction. A dental filling involves the use of a composite material to fill a hole or cavity in the tooth. This restores the tooth to a healthy condition. In the event the tooth needs to be removed, we offer extractions. This procedure removes the tooth in its entirety, which can be replaced with a prosthetic in the future.
For those who need an entirely new set of teeth, we are proud to offer our patients dentures. Dentures sometimes get a bad rap but can be very comfortable and functional with the right care. Our dental providers will support you with detailed instructions for using and taking care of your dentures, so you can go back to living your life to the fullest.
Dental education is important for everyone, but especially important for children. Each of our 6 main facilities and all of our 9 school-based facilities offer dental education for children and adults alike. This education involves how to take care of your teeth and gums with proper brushing and flossing techniques.
In addition to the services above, we are proud to offer our patients:
- Treatment of oral health conditions
- Age-specific dental products
- Simple oral surgery
