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.
OrthodonticsFor most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. However, orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smileâ€”it creates a healthier you.
Invisalign OrthodonticsÂ®, an orthodontic treatment approved by the FDA, is the virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth without conventional metal braces. With Invisalign
Restorative DentistryWe also asked the family of Dr. Walsh to share their experiences in working day in and day out for their father. Dr. Walsh's tribute will be posted soon. In the meantime, our first anecdote comes from Andrew Hauschka, DDS. Dr. Hauschka, a father of three young children, works primarily in our Myers Park office. He specializes in Esthetic Restorative Dentistry, Sports Dentistry and Appliance Fabrication and Dental Surgery.
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.
General DentistryDr. John T. Walsh founded his first practice off Freedom Drive in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1992. What began as a single, general dentistry practice has grown into 11 general and multi-specialty offices in and around Charlotte. Dentistry of the Carolinas is proud to be a family owned and operated company. Dr. Walsh’s three daughters, daughter-in-law, and son-in-law are members of the corporate team and work to ensure Dr. Walsh’s vision of providing excellent, accessible, and affordable care to patients remains true.
Teeth CleaningIf the status of your gum health does not require periodontal treatment, then your dental cleaning should begin.
Dental ExaminationHow often are x-rays taken? A series of x-rays are taken at your comprehensive exam visit in order to develop a baseline of dental health and for the diagnosis of dental disease. Once this series is taken, routine x-rays are generally provided every 12 months. In some cases, x-rays are needed more frequently based on your specific dental health need. We follow the ALARA principle, which stands for As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
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.
