At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we work with most dental insurance plans, and we're happy to file claims on your behalf.

Dental insurance can be challenging to navigate, and we encourage you to contact our friendly and knowledgeable treatment coordinators with any questions you might have about your dental benefits.

We ask patients to pay their portion for treatment when we complete the services. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards for payment.

We also work with companies like CareCredit and Lending Club that offer third-party financing for patients with more extensive treatment needs. These companies can help break the cost of your treatment into affordable monthly payments, and some plans are even interest-free for qualified patients.

At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we work closely with you to determine your goals for your smile and combine that with a realistic plan for your treatment needs, always keeping your best interests in mind. We never want finances to keep our patients from getting the dentistry they need and deserve.

One of the things that keeps patients away from the dentist is fear and anxiety, which often revolves around pain or discomfort. Maybe they've experienced discomfort at the dentist in the past, or they fear the treatment they're going to need to restore their smile will be complicated and painful.

The first thing you should know is that you're not alone. Millions of Americans feel this same way about visiting their dentist.

Next, you should know that modern dentistry has made many advances, and with state-of-the-art technology, dental procedures are more comfortable and pain-free than they've ever been.

Finally, you should know that Dr. Lassiter is an extraordinarily experienced and highly-skilled dentist in Kingsland, GA, who's completed thousands of hours of post-graduate training to hone his techniques and expertise. This means that you're in the best hands whether you need a small dental filling or complete smile rehabilitation.

At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we also offer nitrous oxide for patients who need a little extra assistance feeling at ease while getting through their dental procedures.

Nitrous oxide is a combination of nitrous and oxygen that you breathe through a mask you'll wear during your dental procedure. It works quickly to help you feel at ease and relaxed. When we've completed your procedure, it leaves your body just as quickly so you can drive and return to your normal daily activities.

Dental Implants

Tooth loss impacts your life in many ways, from causing difficulties during eating and chewing to affecting your confidence when interacting with other people.

Dr. Lassiter offers excellent solutions for replacing one more missing teeth, such as:

  • Dental implants
  • Bridges
  • Full or partial dentures

Dental implants are the closest replacement to a natural tooth because they restore both your tooth and root. They can also support prosthetics like a bridge or denture so patients with multiple missing teeth can benefit from dental implants.

Bridges are a good solution for one or a few adjacent missing teeth. This non-surgical solution places a permanent appliance with anchor crowns that attach to prosthetic teeth in between.

Full or partial dentures are excellent solutions for patients missing multiple teeth. Dentures are removable appliances that can restore some or all of your teeth. In addition, we can use dental implants to support dentures for even more stability and ease during eating and talking.

If you're living with tooth loss, Dr. Lassiter would love to talk with you about your options for tooth replacement in Kingsland. His extensive ongoing education has given him the skills to help patients, even with the most complex cases, achieve success in restoring their smiles.

Call (912) 576-4011 to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Lassiter.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

When a patient experiences trauma, severe tooth decay, or other extensive damage to their teeth, they may require a more complex treatment plan to restore their dental health. Full mouth rehabilitation refers to the treatment procedures Dr. Lassiter may use to restore function to your bite for eating and to chew with ease again, and aesthetics to your smile to rebuild your confidence.

Some of the treatment procedures that Dr. Lassiter could include in your plan might be:

  • Porcelain crowns or veneers
  • Tooth extraction
  • Dental bridges
  • Full or partial dentures
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental implants

Dr. Lassiter may be able to divide your full mouth rehabilitation treatment in Kingsland into phases. Phased treatment helps patients adjust their schedules and budgets to accommodate their dental treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Restoring Your Smile?

When you restore proper function to your teeth, your bite also functions correctly, protecting your jaw joints from painful problems that can cause deterioration. Not to mention, you can eat, chew, and enjoy the foods you love again.

The confidence that a beautiful smile brings is priceless. So when you find yourself creating new relationships and meeting your professional goals, you'll understand the profound impact your smile has on your overall well-being. 

Are you living with a compromised smile? Then, we encourage you to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Lassiter to learn more about what's possible for you.

General Dentistry

Most healthy patients can plan to visit their dentist every six months for bi-annual teeth cleanings and checkups. These visits are a critical component in maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile.

Dr. Lassiter will screen you for problems like tooth decay and gum disease during your examination. When you're aware of these problems as early as possible, you have more treatment options available to you that are less expensive and not as complicated.

Your hygienist removes the plaque and bacteria that contribute to tooth decay and gum disease from hard-to-reach places you might've missed at home. 

For patients managing gum disease, Dr. Lassiter may recommend additional teeth cleanings throughout the year to help them maintain their good dental health.

Unfortunately, there's no cure for advanced gum disease or periodontitis. But we can help you successfully manage your condition and keep your symptoms under control.

We want to be your partners in optimum oral health at Lassiter Family Dentistry. When you commit to routine dental care, you're also protecting your overall well-being.

Contact our dental office in Kingsland today at (912) 576-4011 to schedule your next appointment. We're accepting new patients, and we would love to meet you!
