Professional General Dentistry in West Monroe, LA

April 6, 2015

The best way to keep your beautiful, luminous smile is to ensure your oral health is in tip-top shape. Of course, brushing, flossing, and rinsing is a great way to keep your teeth and gums healthy after they experience pressure from chewing, bacteria build-up, and plaque formation. With tartar, decay, loose food particles, and other factors, gum disease and tooth decay is always around the corner. The immaculate general dentistry from the office of L. King Scott, DDS can guarantee pristine oral hygiene and prevent oral health problems.

Amazing Care for Your Mouth

General dentistry from Dr. Scott and his phenomenal team of dental experts is the best way to make sure your mouth, teeth, and gums are in optimal condition. General dentistry covers the foundation of oral care, which means we cover all the general aspects of dentistry during an examination. Focus is not spent solely on cleaning your teeth. We take digital X-rays to examine your mouth, perform an oral cancer screening, thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, check for any potential problems, and educate all patients on furthering their oral hygiene to higher levels. Our treatments are comprehensive and thorough. We provide the best care and make sure each patient is comfortable during an examination.

Oral Surgery from Dr. King Scott

November 7, 2013

While we hope that your smile will always remain healthy, there are times when oral surgery will be necessary to restore health to your teeth and gums. You may not realize it, but Dr. King Scott can perform a number of oral surgeries right there in his office.

As part of their dental training, your general dentist is actually trained to perform a number of oral surgeries. This can be an advantage because you won’t need to find a specialist and won’t have to go to another office. However, there are times when an oral surgeon will be the right choice to perform complicated procedures. Depending on the procedure, Dr. Scott will decide on the right choice for your smile.

Dr. Scott has also had significant amounts of postgraduate training in several different procedures, so you can feel confident when he’s performing oral surgery. Some of the procedures that he can perform include the following:

  • Wisdom teeth extraction
  • Tooth extraction
  • Root canal therapy
  • Soft tissue grafts
  • Crown lengthening
  • Gum lifts
  • Bone grafts
  • Dental implant placement

We want to help our patients receive the dental care they need in a convenient manner. Dr. Scott can perform a variety of oral surgery procedures, allowing you to receive the care you need without needing to go to a specialist. Call us to learn more or if you have any questions about oral surgery.

Using Dental Insurance Benefits Before the End of the Year in Monroe

October 31, 2013

It may seem hard to believe, but 2013 is rapidly coming to a close. Before the year is over, the staff at Dr. King Scott’s office recommends that our patients take the time to review their insurance plans to make sure they took full advantage of their dental insurance benefits this year.

If you’ve been delaying a dental checkup appointment, now is a good time to come in because this is one of the services covered by most dental insurance plans. This is a fundamental component of good oral health. Also, if you’ve been putting off any dental work and it’s either covered by your plan or you’ve met your deductible, now is the time to schedule those appointments. Your plan’s coverage will not roll over at the end of the year, so any benefits that you do not use will be lost.

Every dental insurance plan is different, so it’s important to check with your insurance company to make sure you fully understand everything that’s available to you. You can also call our office for additional clarifications. We want to make sure that our patients are keeping their smiles shining bright by taking full advantage of their dental benefits.

January 16, 2013

Start the New Year off right with a dental checkup appointment at Dr. King Scott’s office. Make a commitment to your dental health this year and come see us every six months for healthy teeth!

You may be asking yourself why you need to keep coming back if you’re brushing twice a day and rinsing with Listerine after you brush and your teeth seem fine. A dental checkup is crucial because there are many things that could be going on with your teeth that you cannot see or remove yourself. Plaque and bacteria and calculus can build up on your teeth, and can only be removed by our dental team.

We are also checking you for signs of oral cancer, periodontal disease or other dental health concerns. If left unchecked, these can cause a threat to your overall general health and certainly your total dental health. Since there may not be a lot of symptoms, it is essential that you come see us regularly. With regular care and examinations, these issues can be detected and treated appropriately, helping you have a healthy, terrific smile.

Your old restorative dental work maybe wearing out and may be in need of replacement because of wear or decay. We will ensure the health of your teeth by doing a comprehensive tooth by tooth exam for cavities, decayed fillings and broken down filling along with and other dental concerns.

A dental checkup is an important tool to help ensure the best health of your teeth. Come in a minimum of two times a year to keep your smile shining bright!
