Pruitt & Eberhart DMD PC
I have used several dentists over the years. I am twenty-six years old and have never had good teeth, due to never being able to go to the dentist as a child. I have been using Dr. Eberhart for about five years, (and occasionally Dr. Pruitt when Eberhart isn't available). He has been able to fix other dentists horrible mistakes for me. They are not out to rob your bank account either. I have a "temporary crown" in the back of my mouth where a previous dentist located in Fort Payne, charged me $1200, its not even a temporary crown! Dr. Eberhart simply told me it's not salvageable since its cracked down the middle and it's financially best for me to get it extracted. He has removed my wisdom teeth, cut out several molars, and I'm actually fixing to call and get some fillings done today. The staff is wonderful, and both dentists are very skilled and very attentive. I'm very partial to Eberhart, he has a gentle touch, and is a very caring man. He explains procedures every time, and you can't even feel the novacaine shots. I really recommend you go to this dentist office if you are in the area. I feel five stars are selling them short, I'd give them ten if possible. Love these guys!!!!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
