Treman & Treman Family Dental Care
I have been going here for years and the staff has ALWAYS been super friendly and helpful! Dr. Mike is the GREAT! He is very gentle and really focuses on making sure you are comfortable. He is amazing at what he does and I would never go anywhere else! They offer same day crowns! I have had several same day crowns and it is amazing! They are really up-to date to the latest in dental technology! My young daughter loves going as well and I will have Dr. Mike doing her orthodontic work in a few years as well. They have always treated us like family and I love them for that! We are all smiles!

Southeast Smiles
We found Southeast Smiles in google and sure glad we did! We were in NC for a vacation when a severe pain in my upper molar hit. My sister googled and found several places and only Southeast Smiles did respond to the urgency of my needs. Dr. Panchal and his staff were very helpful and made me feel very comfortable and did everything they could to help relieve me from my pain so I can enjoy the rest of my vacation. The office is very nice and clean, updated high technology equipments. Highly recommended!

Shumate, Dana B, DDS
I had to have an emergency tooth extraction over the holidays. Dr. Shumate was extremely accommodating! Not only was he open when every other dentist in the area was closed between Christmas and New year's, he was able to get me in immediately! Dr. Shumate was very courteous and professional. I have made him and his fantastic staff, our family dentist due to this visit!Thank you, Dr. Shumate!!!

Port City Dental Center
My husband and I found The Port City Dental Center through a recommendation of our friends. We couldn't have been more impressed, the staff was patient and explained things thoroughly. We were a little fuzzy on some of our insurance and they cleared things up for us that we probably should have known going in. Not to mention, the practice is the most gorgeous dental office we've been in.

I had an amazing experience at this office! The staff were top notch, and they really cared about getting me out of pain
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
