Introducing Conservative Inlays & Onlays

November 13, 2017

However, two conservative solutions that many patients have never heard of are inlays and onlays.

Inlays and onlays offer patients a middle ground between fillings to repair very small areas and dental crowns to repair the whole tooth.

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. The end of the year is often a busy time filled with holidays and other events, so make sure you schedule your appointment today.

Dr. King Scott Restores Smiles with Dental Implant Solutions

October 21, 2013

If you’re missing many or all of your teeth from damage or decay, you know how important it is to have them replaced. A full, healthy set of teeth is essential. Maybe you have dentures and aren’t satisfied with the fit, or know you need dentures and aren’t excited about the prospect. At Dr. King Scott’s dental office we offer implant-secured dentures for a better smile restoration experience.

Dental implants are a secure tooth replacement method because it’s anchored to your jawbone by titanium posts. These posts bond with your jawbone, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. This is important because not only does it create a firm base for your restoration, but it also helps to retain more of your jawbone.

Maybe you’re missing more than a few teeth and are wondering what kinds of options are available for you. Implant- secured dentures are another great way we can use dental implants to help restore even more smiles. Since your dentures will be anchored to your smile, they’ll fit securely, leaving you free from the risk of slippage or embarrassing incidents.

If your smile is impacted by a lack of teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible. We can help with dental implants and implant-secured dentures for a secure smile replacement solution. Give us a call to learn more and see if this is the right choice for your smile.

Porcelain Crowns from Dr. Scott Can Complete Your Smile

October 7, 2013

Here at Dr. King Scott’s dental office, we offer a variety of choices when it comes to restorative dental work. One of our most popular choices is porcelain crowns. This restoration allows us to restore health to a damaged or decayed tooth while still allowing it to blend seamlessly with your smile.

If you have a tooth that is cracked, broken, decayed or worn, it’s important to restore it with a porcelain crown. A crown fits snugly over your tooth like a cap to help restore strength and protect your tooth against further damage. It will also help to keep your bite in proper alignment.

Porcelain is a great choice of material for your crown restoration because they’re carefully color matched to resemble the rest of your smile. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had any dental work performed. Also, this material is durable and long-lasting, so with proper care and maintenance it will last you a long time.

If you have a tooth that’s suffering from damage and decay, don’t put it off any longer. Give us a call today so we can get started on your porcelain crown. This is an important restorative dental procedure that helps keep your smile healthy.

Dental Technology: Panorex

September 13, 2013

At Dr. King Scott’s dental office we are committed to using dental technology to help improve the quality of care we provide to our patients. Panorex is a great tool that also helps to demonstrate how technology can help to provide a better dental experience.

Panorex is a special type of X-ray that creates a panoramic view of your mouth from side to side. This is a helpful tool to Dr. Scott when he’s trying to thoroughly analyze your bite for a better smile treatment. This is also useful when planning restorative or cosmetic dental treatments because it shows clearly how your upper and lower teeth fit together to form your bite.

These Panorex images can also be a helpful tool to help patients understand exactly what is going on with their smiles, and better understand why certain treatments are being recommended. This helps patients to have a clearer idea of what’s going on with their smiles.

We use dental technology to help offer the most advanced and high quality dental care possible to our patients. To learn more about our dental technology such as Panorex, give us a call or schedule an appointment to see for yourself.

Back to School Dental Checkups in West Monroe

September 6, 2013

Fall is approaching, the weather is starting to cool down and your kids are heading back to school. What better time than now to come in for you or your child’s regular dental checkup? At Dr. King Scott’s dental office, we recommend that you visit us twice a year for your regular dental checkup.

Our dental checkups consist of three parts: a soft tissue and oral cancer exam, thorough inspection of each tooth, and a comprehensive periodontal exam. Together, this helps to ensure a healthy smile. While regular brushing and flossing is an important part of smile care, it’s not enough to ensure a healthy smile. Smile care is important no matter how old you are. Once your child is four or five years old, they should have regular dental checkups.

Back to school can often be a hectic time, so make sure to schedule an appointment today for you or your child. Making the time for this appointment now will help ensure a healthy smile for years to come. Dental checkups are an important part of preventative dentistry and can help to catch small problems before they cause major damage to your smile.

Teeth can become stained for a variety of reasons, including aging, tobacco, alcohol, foods, and even some medications.
