General Dentistry

Routine exams and dental cleanings in our James Island office, can help prevent a number of common dental issues from developing into more significant concerns.
During your examination at James Island Dental Associates, Dr. Weir, Dr. Thomas, or Dr. Brown will perform a visual and tactile examination of your teeth and the surrounding soft tissue. We are looking for signs of decay, gum disease, teeth grinding, chronic jaw pain, and other issues that will help you have a healthier and more comfortable smile.

Every exam also includes a routine oral cancer screening. Oral cancer is a serious condition, but outcomes are generally good when it is caught and treated early.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dental procedures help patients in James Island to reduce or eliminate dental pain and discomfort, as well as provide solutions for a more comfortable mouth and smile.

At James Island Dental Associates, we use the latest in dental technology, making the process efficient and more comfortable for our patients.  From dental bridges to implants, our experienced staff is committed to making your mouth look, feel, and function better.

In the past, getting a new crown  involved waiting weeks while an off-site dental lab crafted your crown. Today, CEREC technology allows us to design and mill your crown right here in our office in a single visit. This allows for greater convenience and avoids the need for temporary restorations.
