Service Highlights

We offer every service you can imagine from fillings to full mouth reconstruction. Some of our greatest services include:

Dental Implants

There are two types of implant wearers.  Those who are missing all of their teeth and are currently in dentures or are about to have full extractions and end up in dentures; the second being single or multiple teeth implant restorations.  The benefits of dental implants for denture patients are improved retention, function and stability, and improved ability to chew and digest food. We offer the option to go paleteless on the upper, meaning no more covering the roof of your mouth and limiting your ability to taste; no more use of nasty, sticky adhesives; remarkably improved facial appearance and contouring (almost like an instant face lift); improved ability to speak, laugh and sing with confidence – no more worrying about your dentures slipping or falling out.

Dr. Scott is also one of the few dentists in the U.S. who does Subperiosteal Implants.  These implants act as an artificial jaw bone and are a full titanium implant that rests upon the mandible to help support and stabilize.  This implant, performed on the lower jaw only, offers hope to those who have been told through the years that they don’t have enough bone on the lower to do implants. Our office also uses mini implants in certain cases, where a patient may lack enough bone for conventional size implants, but doesn’t quite need a Subperiosteal.

We also offer single implant restorations. These eliminate the need to unnecessarily crown good, sound teeth in order to support a bridge. It is much easier to clean and maintain a single tooth versus a bridge. For patients who are missing some but not all of their teeth, options are available that allow for firmly fixed crowns and bridges to be placed so that patients have no need whatsoever to remove any partial appliances. Their remaining natural teeth and replacement implanted teeth are cosmetically and functionally indistinguishable from each other, thus creating the much desired comfort, function, health and cosmetic benefits that literally change our patients’ lives.

Custom, Lifelike Dentures

Our dentures are the finest in Mobile.  They are individualized and custom made for each patient, taking into account things like age, ethnicity, lifestyle, face shape, bone structure and skin tone.  Patients get to see and try on their dentures in wax as many times as necessary until they are completely satisfied and ready to process.  We use the best lab in the United States and Dr. Scott is not only a scientist, but an artist.  Quality dentures are a work of art, not just something milled by a machine and placed in a patient’s mouth.

Crowns, Bridges, Veneers, Lumineers®

We offer Zirconia and all porcelain restorations, as well as other colored enhancements (bonding and composites) for broken, chipped, discolored or misshapen teeth.  Our cosmetic restorations are natural looking and designed by Dr. Scott, a true artist, to fit the patient’s facial contour, complexion, and personality.  We use CAD/CAM 3D technology for impressions instead of foul tasting impression material.

Gum Disease Treatment

We treat all phases of gum disease from a localized deep cleaning to the most advanced type of perio treatment.  Our practice has the best hygienist on the Gulf Coast with more than 25 years of experience treating periodontal disease and periodontal bone loss.

Dr Scott states, “She is the most committed, thorough, concerned, caring & compassionate hygienist I have ever known. She truly cares about each of our patients & their dental health.” 

In addition, we offer extensive home care education to teach patients how to properly care for their teeth and gums – from proper brushing techniques and what type of tooth brush to use, to how to floss properly. We also offer Rotadents®, Air Floss® and sensitivity products in our office.

Bone Loss Treatment

Dr. Scott is one of only a few dentists on the Gulf Coast to surgically treat bone loss.  This includes more than 35 years of experience in sinus lifts and bone grafting procedures for ridge and tooth site preservation.
