The main goal at Picayune Smiles is helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and a confident smile. Dr. Daho, Dr. Stasney and Dr. Kelly provide the highest standard of excellence in personalized dental care to all patients, including comprehensive treatment planning, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic procedures. We treat patients of all ages, from children to seniors.
Most major dental problems are preventable, or even reversible if we catch them early enough. When you schedule regular checkups, we can help you avoid potential oral health concerns like tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Cleanings And Exams
Your “cleaning appointment” is about more than just having your smile polished. A professional cleaning, periodontal evaluation, digital x-rays, fluoride treatment, oral cancer screening and dental exam are just some of the steps taken during your checkup visit. These services every six months can help you keep your natural teeth for the rest of your life. Should you require treatment, we’ll review all available options. If you have specific concerns or questions, our hygienist and dentist will be happy to discuss them with you!
You deserve to smile with confidence! Do your yellow stained teeth make you hide your smile instead? Discoloration is one of the most common cosmetic dental problems adults face, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be a permanent part of your life. We offer several teeth whitening options such as in office treatment, take home trays and disposable trays. When used properly, a teeth whitening system can transform your smile from yellow to brilliant white!
Treating your cavity while it’s small is the best (and most affordable) way to keep your smile healthy. A composite filling is a tooth-colored resin used to restore decayed teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements such as fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth.
A root canal is one of the last lines of defense for saving a badly damaged or infected tooth. It is a dental restoration that repairs a tooth from the inside, as opposed to the outside (like a filling or a dental crown.) Some of the reasons why a tooth may need a root canal include: an abscess, large cavity, cracked or damaged crown (above the gums), traumatic injury causing nerve death.
Our ultimate goal in dentistry is to help patients keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. However, sometimes teeth need to be removed in order to keep the others healthy, or simply to get you out of pain as quickly as possible. The most common reasons why we may recommend a dental extraction include: impacted wisdom teeth, advanced periodontal disease, broken down teeth, fractured tooth roots or extensive decay. After your mouth heals, we can discuss options to replace your missing tooth.
