General Dentistry Services
As a general dentist, Dr. Perkins will diagnose, treat and manage your overall oral health. He is not only concerned with the condition of your teeth but also the health of your entire mouth. At your bi-annual regular visits to our Chatmire, FL area dentist office, he will examine the health, function, and aesthetics of the teeth, gums, and jaw.
What to Expect During Your Check-up
A dental health checkup and teeth cleaning are vital to avoiding complex dental concerns. At each visit, Dr. Perkins will screen for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. He utilizes laser cavity detection to diagnose microscopic defects before it quickly spreads causing even more damage. Also, detecting cavities early makes treatment more conservative. Screening for gum disease is also very important. Periodontal disease often goes unnoticed but can progress and wreak havoc on your oral health even leading to tooth and bone loss.
At every bi-annual visit, you will receive teeth cleaning by one of our licensed dental hygienists. Your hygienist will remove the hidden plaque from your teeth and then polish them. If necessary, we may take x-rays of your teeth depending on your dental history or your current conditions.
We offer many treatments and services to help our patients achieve optimal oral health including:
- Emergency Dentistry
- Tooth Fillings
- Root Canals
- Tooth Extractions
- Inlays & Onlays
- Laser cavity detection

Restorative Dental Work
Dr. Perkins also offers his patients from Chatmire, FL restorative dentistry treatments. Restoring missing or damaged teeth is very important to maintaining your oral health. Missing teeth can cause many oral health issues. Even one missing tooth can cause other surrounding teeth to shift, affecting the structure and stability of your bite.
This can lead to gum disease and teeth can suffer from excessive wear, chipping, or cracking. Also, damaged teeth should also be fixed as soon as possible to avoid even further damage and progression. If you have avoided the dentist for a while, Dr. Perkins invites you to schedule an appointment to have your teeth and gums evaluated. We will create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your oral health needs.
The restorative dental treatments we offer to help our patients regain the health and function of their teeth and gums include:
