Dental Implants | Dentures | Replacement Teeth

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.

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.

Patient Review By William C

If you are thinking about having implants, stop thinking and go out and talk with these folks. They do not talk over your head and take the time to explain in detail and answer every single question. Cannot say enough about how well they cared for me and made sure that I was not in pain, understood what they were doing and what to expect when completed. Just wish that I had it done fifteen years or so earlier. Even through the follow up visits, ALL the staff was courteous, responsive and you could tell they were genuinely concerned and cared. Never heard a negative word from anyone, no raised voices, Dr Journigan continuously explained and taught others as he went along. Seriously, I am enjoying foods now that I never thought I would be able to eat again and some even that I had forgotten about! Absolutely no regrets other than wishing I would have done it sooner.

Patient Review By Lindsey D

The absolute, hands down, 100%, BEST place to go for Dentures or Implants!!! From the initial phone and consultation, all the way until I walked out with a new smile, EVERY person that I came in contact with was amazing!! All so helpful, so nice, and understanding. They explained my best options after finding out what was most important to me. Every visit went smooth, they took their time to make sure I was comfortable and happy with the process. I wish I would have came here years ago. This is the place to go, I promise!! They gave me my self-confidence back and I couldn't be happier!!

Patient Review By Brenda B

I recently had implants done on the top and bottom and received ne dentures for both. I am so very happy with the success of this procedure. I am able to eat anything I want now; better than in years. I can smile my big wide smile like I used to be able to do and it feels so good. The staff was so wonderful, everyone was always so helpful. I always felt that I was their #1 patient of that day; such a great feeling. They are the best. I highly recommend the whole team. Having this procedure done is not a quick fix. It requires some patience on the part of the patient. Nothing good ever comes easy, but it is so well worth the time and effort that goes into it. Thanks to all who helped make me so happy. I hope my review shows as a 5 star, because that was my intent.

Corn on the cob, steak and bacon. Stuff I struggled with before. I do recommend them. 100% yes. I live in Kentucky, They were worth the drive (461 miles one way) for each appointment.

Patient Review By Cynthia P

When I was little had a very bad experience at the dentist office so, the only time I go to the dentist was I had to. I had to have seven teeth pulled to obtain upper dentures. I honestly wanted to be put to sleep but this doctor reassured me it would be ok. The day came to pull the teeth I can say God was leading this doctor's hands. This dentist was awesome in keeping my anxiety down and he had the teeth out within minutes and his compassion and caring was out of this world. Thanks so much for giving me a new smile and the confidence to smile.

Patient Review By Frank J

I have trusted my dental care needs to DENTURE CARE AND IMPLANT SOLUTIONS for a number of years now. Each visit has been one of complete satisfaction... I'm made to feel comfortable and welcome, (without pretense), by every Staff Member at each phase of the treatment process, start to finish. They provide a high level of professional quality service in a very pleasant atmosphere. I'ts been my good fortune to have Ms. Vada, ( Dental Assistant ), help guide me through treatment on a few visits, as she's excellent in her capacity and I find the same to be true among all Staffers here. The Drs. Jernigan are true experts, genuinely concerned about their patients and I will continue seeking their help whenever I have need. "THANKS DENTURE CARE AND IMPLANT SOLUTIONS : 5STAR TEAM TOP TO BOTTOM"

Patient Review By Lorrie G

I had dentures for over 5 years. I was fortunate to have only a top plate but I could no longer enjoy food as I used to. I learned that a lot of your taste buds are in the roof of your mouth. I researched implants for over two years. I could not find any that I could afford. Then by chance I dropped my denture on the dining table. (I would take them out and eat with my gums, much to my family's dismay). I had dropped them numerous times but they had never broken. Guess they just fell the right way or it was God's way of showing me where I needed to go. When I went into denture solutions to get them fixed I asked about implants. Dr. Joc Jernigan talked with me and I told him the reasons I was unhappy with my dentures. He came up with a solution that would work for me and one that I could afford. Now I can eat like I used to, have a beautiful smile and am very happy with the results I got. Dr. Joc Jernigan is the best dentist and person I have ever met in this profession. He truly cares about people and that is rare in this day and time. He showed me kindness when I needed it the most! Thanks to all at denture solutions for the way they helped me to change my life for the better.
