Our Dental Services in Lucedale, MS

We address your chief concerns and restore your smile.
Metal-Free Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been impacted by a cavity. These restorations are designed to seal the cavity and prevent bacteria-induced infection from spreading any further.

Dr. Hamm uses white composite fillings to mimic your natural tooth’s color and restore its integrity. The metal-free resin is shaped to fill in the cavity, restore the structure of your tooth, and fit your natural bite.

Once finished, this restoration will blend seamlessly into your smile.

Crowns

Dental crowns may be recommended when teeth are cracked, fractured, or broken. These issues can occur due to severe decay or trauma to the tooth.

Similar to a cap, your custom-made crown is placed over the damaged tooth to protect it. These beautiful restorations help to improve your tooth’s function and strength while improving the aesthetic of your smile.

Crowns are created to blend seamlessly into your smile and provide a long-lasting result.

Bridges

A dental bridge is a custom-made restoration used to replace a missing tooth. Dr. Hamm…Learn more about our restorative dentist… uses modern technology to create natural-looking bridges that blend into your smile.

Bridges consist of two crowns attached to either side of an artificial tooth. These crowns are placed over the adjacent teeth (to the gap) to act as anchors and hold the new tooth in place.

Bridges maintain your smile’s natural look and function while preventing future dental problems such as teeth shifting and further tooth loss.

Dentures

Dr. Hamm has extensive experience building new smiles with immediate, complete, and partial dentures. We are pleased to offer these three denture variations to our Lucedale patients!

Immediate dentures (also known as temporary dentures) are used during your transition to full complete dentures. They allow Dr. Hamm to assess how dentures fit and create the ideal solution for you.

On the other hand, partial dentures are ideal for patients who only have a few missing teeth. This appliance fills in the gap, much like a bridge, so that you can enjoy a healthy smile!

Complete dentures are recommended when all teeth are missing from the upper or lower arch.

Each of our dentures is custom-made to meet your individual circumstances and provide you with a natural-looking smile.

Give your smile a second chance and fully enjoy your day-to-day activities once again.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth due to a traumatic event or extreme decay, then dental implants can be a permanent solution for you.

Dr. Hamm works closely with local oral surgeons and periodontists to facilitate the placement of dental implants. Once the implant is placed, he provides the dental restoration that goes on top of the implant so you get a beautiful and functional smile.

Typically implant restorations include crowns, bridges, or dentures. Each of these is adjusted to meet your personal needs and health requirements.

Extractions

Tooth extractions are often used to prevent further oral health problems or as preparation for future treatments (e.g., orthodontics).

This simple procedure begins with your restorative dentist numbing the area around the tooth so it can be rocked back and forth. Then Dr. Hamm will gently remove the tooth and keep the area clean.

Throughout the procedure, we’ll keep you comfortable and ensure you know what is going on. After the removal, we’ll discuss your tooth replacement options and instructions for keeping the area clean.

TMJ

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorder is a common issue that occurs when this particular joint becomes inflamed or damaged.

When you suffer from TMJ issues, it can lead to headaches, jaw pain, and other symptoms that can disrupt your life. Dr. Hamm is committed to relieving this pain and guiding you along the ideal treatment path. Treatments may include:

  • Simple lifestyle changes
  • The use of an oral appliance
  • Seeing a TMJ specialist

Whatever the best course of action, rest assured that our team is here for you!

Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction is not as intensive as it sounds. It simply refers to using a series of dental treatments to restore your smile’s function and beauty. Dr. Hamm may recommend a reconstruction if you have not visited the dentist for a while and are suffering from multiple oral health issues.

If this is the case, then our restorative dentist in Lucedale, MS…Meet Dr. Hamm…, will create a treatment plan that is custom-made to fulfill all your needs and goals.

Dr. Hamm will outline a step-by-step plan that allows you to space out your treatment and gradually recapture your dental health.

By combining our first-class cosmetic and restorative dentistry services, we can transform your smile and help you to full in love with dentistry. Visit our dental office in Lucedale, MS today for more information!
