Common Dental Concerns
Dr. Lassiter treats a wide variety of dental concerns including tooth pain, bleeding gums and loose dentures. Our goal is to restore your smile to optimal health and comfort and help you maintain that standard through routine dental care visits.
A majority of American adults have some form of gum disease, ranging from simple gum inflammation, called gingivitis, to much more serious levels of gum disease, which affects the tissue and bone supporting the teeth. Bleeding gums is an early warning sign of gum disease.
Ill-fitting dentures can create a number of problems. First, they make eating and speaking difficult. Food can become trapped in the denture leading to bad breath and gum disease. Dr. Lassiter offers several options including dental implant secured dentures. As few as two dental implants can be used to secure an ill fitting denture for better aesthetic and functional results.
There are a number of things that can cause tooth pain. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lassiter. We will evaluate your condition and determine what is causing your tooth pain. In some cases, root canal therapy may be necessary. Most root canal procedures are performed in our office. For complex treatment, Dr. Lassiter may refer you to a local endodontist and coordinate your treatment.
Headaches & Jaw Pain
Dr. Lassiter is one of the few dentists in Kingsland, GA trained to diagnose and treat TMJ and occlusal disorders. Each patient receives a TMJ examination during their visit to check for signs of instability. Occlusal disorder can lead to tooth wear, headaches, tooth pain and other chronic pain.
