DentureCare and Implant Solutions – Rocky Mount NC
Evaluation for Dental Implants
Our philosophy at DentureCare & Implant Solutions is that we believe every patient should be educated about the entire implant treatment process, including all the many potential treatment options, risks and benefits, and so much more. Dental implants can be a foreign and intimidating concept, and the best way to make people comfortable with them is through thorough education. If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry may be the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Edward Jernigan and John C Jernigan and our team. For complex cases we often work in conjunction by a specialist (Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Periodontist, Prosthodontist) referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success. There is no commitment by doing a consultation, and is only to give you the education and information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not dental implant therapy is a good option for you. The more you know and understand about your implant treatment, the more confident you will be with the treatment you decide upon, and the less stressed and concerned you are come the day of the surgery and during the healing phase.
At your consult:
- Meet the doctor and the team
- Review your medial and dental history- please bring any pertinent information to appointment
- Obtain 3D x ray
- View educational video regarding dental implants
- Review dental implant treatment options regarding your specific case
- See models demonstrating potential treatment options
- Discuss any questions, concerns, and desires with doctor and the team
You can find comfort in the fact that the doctor spends immense time and thought planning out the procedure through pre-operative consultation and examination, study models, and virtual implant case and treatment planning on the computer using 3D x-ray. There is no better way to ensure the procedure goes accordingly and smoothly.

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.

Thank you dr. Jernigan and girls !!! Oh what a good job for handling my anxiety and explaining everything to me more than one time . Absolutely never any pain and making it an easy recovery. Gosh, life is wonderful to eat with no more problems from those pesky bad teeth with all their own little nags and no more sensitivity which alone by itself is worth every dime !!!! Along with all mentioned , I also have a beautiful smile. " This makes entering the 50's so much more pleasant. Dr. Jernigan,"Thanks for letting me be entertained by the Goo Goo Dolls through the procedure and sorry for falling asleep a half dozen times while pulling teeth and putting my implants in. You did a magnificent job and thanks for caring most of all !!! So anyway this is me now because of you . Thank you and the girls !!!!!!

I had two teeth cut out on the lower gum and two implants inserted on the same day. Dr. Joc was great and I never had any pain. I also got new lower and upper dentures and have had nothing but praise from my family about how pretty and natural they look. If you have any adjustment done the staff is the greatest to work with and very good at knowing what needs to be done. The implants are very reasonably compared to other Dentist. I would recommend these Doctors and Staff to my family and friends.

The implants have really helped me keep my lower denture in place without it moving and without having to use all of that sticky adhesive. Now I can eat whatever I what without having to worry about my denture moving around.

Patient Review By Leonard M
The implants have really improved my ability to eat. I am able to eat corn on the cob. I am eating more and I am eating better foods now. Before I had the implants my dentures did not stay in place and they jumped around in my mouth. Implants have improved my life!!!
