Dental Fillings

Our office offers composite (tooth-colored) dental fillings. Composite fillings blend in with the rest of the tooth and don’t require as much of the natural tooth to be removed before they can be placed.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are tooth-colored caps that are placed over teeth that have been weakened or damaged and need some extra support. Dental bridges are three or more dental crowns that are attached together, and they can be used to replace missing teeth. These restorations are customized to fit nicely and blend in with surrounding teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

When an infection occurs inside a tooth, a root canal must be performed to restore the tooth. A small hole is drilled in the top of the tooth, the infected dental pulp is cleared out, and the tooth is then cleaned and sealed before a natural-looking dental restoration, like a dental crown, is created and placed over the tooth.

Full & Partial Dentures

Whether you need a few teeth replaced or a full arch, our team can create custom dentures that feel comfortable and look natural. Partial dentures have metal clasps that clip onto nearby teeth to stabilize them, while full dentures use denture adhesive or attach to a few dental implants that are placed throughout the arch.

Dental Extractions

We always want patients to keep their natural teeth whenever possible, but teeth occasionally need to be extracted for a variety of reasons, including dental trauma, excessive tooth decay, and overcrowding. Our team always administers a local anesthetic into the gums to make these procedures as easy and painless as possible.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a very durable tooth-replacement option. The titanium implant is placed in a small hole that is drilled into the jawbone, and once it is healed, a natural-looking dental crown is placed on top. Dental implants look, feel, and function similarly to natural teeth and they can last a lifetime with proper care.

Oral Surgery

Should you or a family member ever need a bone graft surgery or wisdom tooth removal, our team would be happy to perform these treatments right here in our office. Our skilled team is highly trained when it comes to oral surgery, and we can provide detailed aftercare instructions to make your entire experience comfortable.

Senior and High-Risk Patient Hours 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays

Over the next few weeks, we will slowly start to reopen our practice. As most of you know, most dental problems get worse overtime, and we want to treat dental issues before they become bigger problems. We want to ensure our patients that we are taking COVID-19 (and all infectious diseases) seriously and are adding extra precautions to protect you and our team.

We are offering special hours and accommodations for our senior and high-risk patients:

  1. Special hours: We are reserving 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays for our seniors and high-risk patients.
  2. Mobile check-in: There will be no need for you to come into the waiting area. When you arrive, text 843-779-9096 or call 843-203-5429 to let us know that you are here. We will come to your car, bring you in the side door, and take you directly into a treatment room.
  3. First in room: You will be the first patient using the treatment room in at least 36 hours, since we are not normally open on the weekends or Wednesdays.
  4. Paperwork: Any paperwork that you need to complete will be sent to you via email or text so that you can complete it on your own device. We will also allow you to complete the paperwork in the treatment room using paper or a disinfected iPad.
  5. Mask: If you do not have a mask, one will be given to you to enter and exit the office. Our team will keep masks on when we are within 6 feet of you. Since we will be wearing masks, please forgive us if it makes communication harder and please know that we are still smiling underneath.
  6. Closed rooms: Each of our treatment rooms are closed with walls and doors and have their own air return vent. Closed rooms are very effective at keeping potential diseases from spreading from room-to-room.
  7. Check-out: The check-out process will be performed in the treatment rooms. After you are finished, you will leave the office through the side door and avoid the waiting area.
  8. Additional screenings: We will be screening all patients and team members for travel, symptoms associated with COVID-19, and contact with anyone showing symptoms associated with COVID-19 or contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. The temperatures of all patients and team members will be recorded.
  9. Mouth rinse: All patients will use a mouth rinse to destroy viruses and kill bacteria before treatment.
  10. Limit office traffic: We will require all non-essential families/friends to stay at home or wait in their vehicles during appointments.
  11. Infection control: We will continue our normal practice of following universal precautions, as we always do. This means after every patient, the room will be disinfected with chemicals that have been shown to be effective against the coronavirus in 30 seconds (Optim1), the instruments will be sterilized, and our team will continue to wear appropriate protective equipment such as mask and gloves.
  12. Addition cleaning: More frequent sanitation processes for the reception area and bathrooms.
  13. Suctions: As many of you know, we have always used special suctions. Not only do these suctions isolate the area being worked on and protect patient, they also prevent the spread of disease.
  14. Clean air: We have added additional air purification systems to our office.
  15. Stono Dental Care is taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our patients and team. Thank you for your patience and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

    Take care,
Andy Game, DMD, MBA
