Our Featured Services

We offer a range of services at our Fort Walton Beach practice. Some of our most popular services include:

Dental Implants

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.

Porcelain Veneers

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.

General Dentistry

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.

See How Crowns Are Placed

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover and protect compromised teeth to benefit the health of your entire smile. Our practice, serving Destin and Pensacola, can provide crowns in a single visit.

We Use Advanced Tools and Technology To Keep You Comfortable and Your Mouth Healthy

Sedation Dentistry

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.

VELScope® Technology

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.

5 Reasons to Visit the Dentist Every Six Months

The American Dental Association recommends that patients undergo professional dental exams and cleanings every six months. For patients with certain health conditions or a family history that makes them more prone to dental problems, exams may be needed three or four times a year. Attending these routine exams offers many benefits:
number 1 icon

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.

number 2 icon

Save Money

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.

number 3 icon

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.

number 4 icon

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.

number 5 icon

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.
