Our Featured Services
For qualifying patients, dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace tooth roots and provide support for restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implants also provide the stimulation needed to stop jawbone recession after tooth loss. They also provide unmatched security for restorations, so you don't have to worry about your prosthetic slipping out of place or falling out.
Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that Dr. Pohl can use to cover chips, cracks, discoloration, and other imperfections. Veneers produce an aesthetically pleasing smile through minimally invasive treatment. Dr. Pohl is an expert in veneer placement.
Our dentist can create, convert, or repair your dentures. Dentures are an effective treatment for tooth loss, and we can work to create either full or partial dentures. We provide both traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to address infection. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, you may have a tooth infection. Dr. Pohl performs gentle root canal procedures at his office in Fort Walton Beach, FL, and he provides sedation for patients who feel anxious about dental work.
Dr. Pohl can provide general and preventive services for every member of your family. Regular dental checkups every six months are important so that the dentist can identify any developing problems before they become too serious, and so that tartar, plaque, and bacteria in hard-to-reach areas can be removed. Routine checkups are especially important for children so that they become used to the dentist and understand how to maintain lifelong oral health.
Dental crowns are prosthetic caps that cover broken, damaged, or decayed teeth. Crowns are a durable solution that looks completely natural. A crown can also be attached to a dental implant to restore a single missing tooth. Dr. Pohl only uses the highest quality material for his crowns.

We Use Advanced Tools and Technology To Keep You Comfortable and Your Mouth Healthy
We understand many people avoid seeing the dentist because they experience dental anxiety. That is why we take every measure to ensure each patient is as comfortable as possible during treatment. Dr. Pohl offers two methods of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Both are safe and effective in helping you relax while receiving the care you need.
Our comprehensive practice uses state-of-the-art technology to provide the best possible care and prevent oral diseases. During your routine exams, we will use our advanced VELScope® technology to screen for oral cancer. Early detection can help you quickly get the treatment you need, which can dramatically improve your prognosis.
To make dental procedures more accessible, we accept financing through CareCredit® and can work with you to develop a treatment plan that suits your budget.
5 Reasons to Visit the Dentist Every Six Months
Catch Dental Problems Early
When you meet with our dentist every six months, we have the best chance of identifying dental problems in their earliest stages. For example, if a cavity develops and is diagnosed within six months, patients can typically have it treated with a simple dental filling.
If you let that cavity go undiagnosed and untreated, tooth decay can advance to the point that you need a larger (and more expensive) restoration like an inlay, onlay, or crown. Tooth decay can also result in root canal infection or even tooth loss, which also results in a need for more costly treatments to improve your dental health.
Prevent Dental Pain
Advanced dental problems not only increase the cost of your treatment plan, but can also result in significant tooth pain. Dental issues such as cavities, root canal infections, and abscesses can cause chronic discomfort or temporary pain while placing the tooth in danger.
Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned
During your dental exam, we will perform a professional cleaning, which removes tartar (the hardened form of plaque) from the teeth. Tartar typically accumulates in difficult-to-reach areas along the gumline and between the teeth. After your exam, your teeth will look cleaner and feel smoother.
Maintain Fresh Breath
Dental problems like plaque and tartar can result in bad breath. By attending routine exams, we can prevent or treat dental problems to help you avoid halitosis (chronic bad breath). In addition, a professional cleaning will give you fresher breath that can be maintained with a good at-home oral hygiene.
