BracesDo you dream about having a smile full of sparkling, straight teeth, but you just canâ€™t imagine yourself wearing traditional metal braces? Youâ€™ve probably invested in a professional, mature image, and you shouldnâ€™t have to look like a teenager to straighten your teeth. We agree.
OrthodonticsIn response to the recent article published in the New York Times, â€œ Do-It-Yourself Orthodonture: Donâ€™t Try This at Home,â€ Dr. Chase Prettyman of Prettyman Orthodontics wants to share his perspective on this potentially catastrophic health care decision.
Invisalign OrthodonticsÂ®, an orthodontic treatment approved by the FDA, is the virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth without conventional metal braces. With Invisalign
CrownsIf you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment.
DenturesDentures/Partials If you're living with missing teeth, you've probably noticed some lifestyle changes. You may lack confidence when you speak or smile. Your chewing ability has likely diminished. Additionally, your facial appearance may have changed, sagging in the areas where teeth are not present. A denture or partial can restore your self-confidence and renew oral function.

Teeth CleaningIf the status of your gum health does not require periodontal treatment, then your dental cleaning should begin.
Oral Cancer ScreeningOf those individuals who are aware of oral cancer, most believe they are not at risk because they do not smoke cigarettes. In fact, the fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients are young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals. Thatâ€™s why it is more pressing than ever for all adults to have regular oral cancer screenings.
Dental ExaminationVisiting a Dentistry of the Carolinas office on a routine basis is very important for numerous reasons. One being that every Dentistry of the Carolinaâ€™s patient is screened for oral cancer as part of their routine dental exam. Oral cancer can be deadly if not detected at an early stage. In fact, 25% of oral cancer is found in individuals who are not considered high risk. This includes those who never drank alcohol or smoked cigarettes.
X-raysWhat is my level of exposure to radiation when having an x-ray taken? Dental x-rays do emit radiation in extremely precise, isolated amounts. This amount of radiation is measured in something called a millisievert (mSv). Each DOC practice uses digital x-rays which only require a fraction of the dosage of radiation as conventional x-rays do. A full mouth series of x-rays is estimated to emit ~ 0.075 mSv. By comparison, other types of emitting radiation estimated at...

Tooth ExtractionsWhy would I need a tooth extracted? Reasons for tooth extraction may include orthodontics, denture preparation, impaired or nonfunctional teeth, and impacted wisdom teeth. The dentist may also recommend tooth extraction for damaged or decayed teeth, as well as teeth associated with advanced gum disease. If left in the mouth, decayed or damaged teeth can cause acute pain and contribute to gum and bone loss.
