The Art & Science of Dentistry
At its core, dentistry is an art. A beautiful smile can not be created without the eye and skill of an expert artisan. Luckily our team of dentists and hygienists is very skilled in a number of artistic endeavors outside of dentistry. All this artistic talent in our office translates to creating beautiful smiles for our patients.
Today’s dental filling materials require extensive knowledge of chemistry and strict adherence to protocols for clinical success. Tooth-colored filling materials are complex resin composites that are covalently bonded to the natural tooth structure. Dr. Adam Carraway is a scientist at heart, which means he is constantly studying the latest research in dental materials and giving his patients fantastic dental treatment results.
Anxiety-Free Dental Care in Greer
Dr. Carraway and his professional dental team want patients to feel welcome when they step into their office for the first time. No matter the patient’s age, Dr. Carraway makes it his mission to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable. He understands that it can be difficult for some patients to visit the dentist, especially on a regular basis. Whether patients have had a negative past experience or have been away from the dentist for a long time, he can help.
For particularly anxious or fearful patients, Dr. Carraway uses dental sedation. Sedation dentistry makes it easier for patients to receive the dental care they need. Under dental sedation, patients do not remember their dental procedure and can even fall asleep. Sedation dentistry allows patients who would not otherwise visit the dentist to receive treatment.
Preventative dentistry is a type of dental care used to stop the development of serious dental problems including cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. The most common and effective preventative dental treatments are generalized. Routine cleanings, dental x-rays, and scaling and root planing provide preventative treatment. In order to better keep track of our patient’s oral health, we recommend that they visit our office twice a year for routine visits. These routine dental visits are a key part of preventative dentistry.
Our team thoroughly examines the teeth, cleans the teeth and gums, and recommends treatment during these visits.
Modern Dental Technology and Treatments
Dr. Carraway has continued his dental education to provide his patients the latest in treatment methods and technologies:
Digital Dental X-rays
Having a dental X-ray performed during your bi-annual check-up may seem a bit unnecessary, but the truth is dental X-rays are a common procedure that is essential to preventing and treating both minor and extensive oral health concerns. Dental X-rays, also known as radiographs, are images captured with low levels of radiation to show the dentist what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. They are critical in properly diagnosing many dental diseases, including tooth decay, periodontal disease, and impacted teeth.
For children, dental X-rays help the dentist have a clear look at the following:
- The development of cavities
- Impacted teeth
- If wisdom teeth are present and/or moving
- If there is ample space available for permanent teeth to emerge properly
For adults, dental X-rays can show the dentist:
- The development and location of tooth decay
- Decay beneath dental work, such as fillings
- The progression of bone loss
- Abscesses and cysts
- Some oral cancers
- Changes in the root canal
Tooth implants are multipurpose restorations that may be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They are made of durable titanium posts that, after surgical implantation, fuse to the jawbone. Implants provide strength and stability as well as natural-looking restorations. Many patients who receive implants or implant-supported restorations may even forget that they have prosthetic teeth because they look and feel natural.
Dental crowns are tooth caps that can be used to cover natural teeth or dental implants. They are made of porcelain ceramic, reflecting light for a natural look. Tooth crowns brighten discolored teeth and strengthen weakened or worn teeth.
