Our hygiene appointments are designed to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth that regular brushing and flossing alone cannot accomplish. With our gentle and caring touch, we’ll aid in cavity prevention, stain removal, and the prevention of further dental issues.

Our skilled hygienists are experienced in caring for children, teens, and adults. They will work within your comfort level and provide their expert recommendations.

Periodontal Therapy

Dr. Hamm recognizes that ensuring the health of your gums is essential to both your oral health and overall well-being.

With the use of periodontal therapy, your Lucedale dentist…Learn more about Dr. Hamm…, and our caring team can remove any signs of gum disease and restore the health of the soft tissue in your mouth.

In addition to routine cleanings, our team performs scaling and root planing when periodontal disease has become more severe. This deep cleaning of your teeth and roots removes any plaque or harmful bacteria while halting the spread of gum disease.

Dr. Hamm and our hygienists are here to safeguard both your smile and your overall health.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Your dentist in Lucedale, MS, views his patients like family and wants to help you maintain a high standard of health.

As a preventative measure, oral cancer screenings are conducted during your regular check-ups. These screenings consist of a visual and physical evaluation of your oral cavity and the soft tissue in your mouth.

If there is any cause for concern, we’ll arrange for a biopsy and work with your general physician to get an accurate diagnosis and identify any necessary treatment.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a thin plastic resin painted onto the chewing surface of your teeth.

Sealants help fill in pits and grooves on your tooth surface, preventing food debris or plaque from becoming stuck.

This is an excellent preventative measure for our younger patients who struggle to reach all surfaces while brushing. It has proven very effective at preventing the formation of cavities.

Root Canals

If a tooth becomes extremely decayed, there’s a risk of a cavity reaching the nerve (pulp) and causing a severe infection. In cases like this, root canal therapy can be required to save your tooth.

During a root canal, Dr. Hamm will gently remove the infection and clean the inside of your tooth. He’ll then fill the space with a composite resin to restore the integrity of your tooth’s structure.

You can get all of this and be free of pain in just one visit!

Nightguards

Are you experiencing headaches, a sore jaw, or difficulty when opening and closing your mouth?

Then, you may be grinding your teeth at night, which can wear away tooth enamel and lead to TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) problems.

We have a solution! Our dentist provides custom-made nightguards, which are designed to protect your teeth from night-time grinding. These comfortable appliances can safeguard your smile and prevent future dental issues.

A wonderful team that works together in all aspects. They provide a pleasant atmosphere and accommodating hours.
