To our patients, friends, and valued referrals:
Our thoughts are with all of you during these unique times. Our practice is following the CDC, ADA and SCDA’s recommended protocols and we have postponed elective procedures in order to concentrate solely on emergent and urgent dental care at this time. We are committed to ensuring that our doctors and staff are available to care for emergency patients in order to help alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospitals or urgent care facilities. Should you or one of your patients feel you have a dental emergency and you need us, please call our office. Our office staff will be contacting patients to reschedule non-emergent appointments
We will continue to closely monitor updates and guidelines from the CDC, ADA and SCDA. In the event of new information, we will keep you informed of any changes to our procedures.
Stay well everyone and, as always, we appreciate your support, trust and partnership.
Drs. Caputo, Murphy and Keith

Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. They are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or other reasons. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the surrounding structures to the teeth. It is often silent, meaning symptoms, particularly pain, may not appear until an advanced stage of the disease. However, you should still be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms of the disease.
