Thank you for visiting our website. Our goal is to introduce DentureCare and Implant Solutions to you and to educate you as thoroughly as possible regarding the services we offer, the pros and cons of those services, and the costs. We hope you begin to get to know who we are and what we can do to help you with your denture needs.
DentureCare Solutions was founded 25 years ago with the idea that each denture patient has unique needs and priorities. Some demanded the best materials along with full customization. For others cost was the most important factor. Still others needed them in the same day to minimize travel time or loss of work. Our goal from the beginning was to identify the needs of each individual and try to find a solution to that need in a way that saved the patient both time and money, but always the best in products and services, in return for the dollar spent.
The key to being able to do this so efficiently is
1) our narrow focus on replacement teeth and…
2) the presence in our office of an on-site lab.
We strive to treat every patient with compassion, dignity and respect, which is why so many patients recommend us to their family and friends.
We have been doing just that in Rocky Mount and the surrounding towns of Wilson, Tarboro, Roanoke Rapids and other for these last 25 years. Those efforts have been very rewarding…we love what we do and it shows!
We primarily offer Full and Partial Dentures in a variety of price points. Each price point indicates a certain level of quality and precision and customization.
We recently changed our descriptive name to DentureCare and Implant Solutions, alongside our formal name, Drs. Jernigan and Associates. We are general dentists who primarily do dentures and the related surgery that often accompanies these patients. That is the “main thing”. But as the name implies, we offer dental implants for those seeking the very best denture treatment available today.
The implant plays a supportive role, literally to the denture and figuratively in our practice. But what it does for the denture is simply AMAZING. The implant supported denture is the new Standard of Care in replacement tooth therapy.
In over 30 years of making dentures, I can unequivocally say that the biggest problem with full dentures is the lower (mandibular) denture. For various reasons it is very difficult to control. We hear “loose and floppy”. We hear “cannot eat right with them”. Again, I point to the dental implant as the best solution for the loose lower denture that is available today! We are so excited to have this opportunity to radically change your life for the better. These are potentially life changing procedures.
On this site, you will be able to learn more about the dentures we offer and how implants might help you improve the quality of your life.
Again, I thank you for visiting our web site.
Stop coping and start living again.

Dentures in Rocky Mount, Wilson, Tarboro NC
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
- An upper denture has acrylic, usually gum colored base, that covers the palate (roof of the mouth). These are often, but not always. partially retained by a “suction” made possible by the anatomy of the upper jaw.
- A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue. These are often the most difficult to stabilize due to a lack of “suction” and the action of the tongue when eating and speaking.
- A partial denture is used to replace missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw when people are missing “some” teeth, but not all teeth. Often the remaining teeth are used to stabilize and hold down the denture using either metal clasps or snapping onto implants.
