Patient Services

In addition to general and preventative dental care, we specialize in aesthetic and restorative services.

We also provide:

  • Geriatric Dentistry
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • Root Canals
  • Oral Surgery
  • Night Guards: Many patients complain about nightly teeth clinching or grinding.  Our office provides expert care in fashioning night guards to keep these from causing dental as well as other health problems.

Restorative Services

Implant Restorations: Through his work with the Birmingham branch of the Seattle Study Club, Dr. Beckham stays informed on cutting edge developments in restorative dental techniques. His years of experience with implant restorations offer patients a unique opportunity to receive expert restorative dental care.

Aesthetic Services

Teeth Whitening: Our patients enjoy Nite White, and at-home teeth whitening system that progressively brightens teeth over two weeks. We will custom fit mouth trays in our office, then you simply fill the trays with the whitening gel each evening and wear them when you’re sleeping. In approximately fourteen days, your teeth will be dramatically whiter and brighter.

Ceramic Crowns: Ceramic crowns maintain a natural tooth color throughout your mouth.

Veneers: Veneers cover discolored, chipped, or misaligned teeth painlessly and quickly.

Tooth-Colored Restorations: Modern techniques in restorative dentistry include the ability to custom match restorations to your natural teeth’s color.

Anesthesia Services

Local Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered by injection prior to a procedure. It numbs the mouth and surrounding tissue so that a patient does not experience pain in the area being treated.

Nitrous Oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask prior to and during treatment. It has a tremendous ability to relieve anxiety and yet still allow the patient to communicate with the doctor and staff during a procedure.

Technology

Patient care involves not only the education and expertise of a talented dentist and staff, but also the latest equipment to enhance capabilities and quality in dental procedures. Our office uses the Diagnodent, an instrument that painlessly detects demineralization in and between teeth accurately and quickly using a laser. We also use an intraoral camera that transmits a picture from the inside of a patient’s mouth to a monitor where we can comprehensively assess a patient’s oral health and allow the patient to be an active part of the process. Dr. Beckham enjoys showing patients any problems in their mouths so they can fully understand his recommendations and make informed decisions.
