Preventative Treatment


This is one of the most effective ways of keeping your smile healthy and looking great. You should have a comprehensive dental exam at least twice annually.  During the exam Dr. Stack will look for decay and cracks in the teeth, do an oral cancer screen, and examine any x-rays taken during the appointment. The American Dental Association recommends diagnostic X-rays be taken annually as part of your exam to assist Dr. Stack in identifying potential problem areas especially in between the teeth.


Tooth Decay and Gum Disease occur when teeth and gums are not cleaned properly. Your teeth are covered with a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. Plaque builds up after you eat and when you sleep. The bacteria in plaque turn the sugar in foods and drinks into acids. These acids attack your tooth’s hard outer layer, called enamel. Breakdown of the enamel causes decay or cavities. Most patients require professional cleanings twice annually to help remove plaque. We also offer deeper cleanings for patients with periodontal disease. These cleanings may be required more frequently to maintain maximum oral health.


Our Greenville SC dental office provides fluoride treatments for children and adults, which create an additional barrier against tooth decay. If you drink fluoridated water and routinely brush with fluoride toothpaste, you likely receive a sufficient amount of fluoride. However, if you drink mostly bottled water, you are in orthodontic treatment, you take medications that cause dry mouth, or you have gum recession in office fluoride treatment would be recommended. We also offer prescription strength fluoride toothpaste for patients with these conditions.


Dental sealant is a plastic coating that we paint onto the biting surfaces of your teeth. It is a fact that when combined with a good oral care routine, dental sealant applied to the molars of children and adults is helpful in creating an excellent barrier against the bacteria that cause tooth decay.


If you notice that you are grinding or clinching your teeth or have soreness in your jaw, you may need a night guard.  Dr. Stack make custom night guards here in our office in Greenville, SC.

We also provide custom fit Sleep Apnea appliances that are designed to help properly position your jaws while you sleep to prevent sleep apnea. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea and would like to reduce the need for a CPAP machine, the OptiSleep appliance may be right for you.

Restorative Treatment


Fillings are used to treat minor decay, cracks and broken teeth. These durable restorations return your teeth to their proper shape and function.


A crown or “cap” is used to treat teeth that are broken, have cracked, or have suffered extensive decay. Dr. Stack uses digital technology to design a custom crown all in one same day appointment.


Dental Implants are a permanent fixed option.  A dental implant is surgically placed in the bone where the root of the tooth used to be. After the implant is placed, a crown is placed on top of the implant.  Dr. Stack can do both the placement of the implant and the crown on top of the implant.


Removable partials are also an option to replace missing teeth.  These are a more affordable option for patients.


Dentures are another option for replacing all the teeth. Dentures are incredibly natural in appearance and fit better thanks to newer materials used today.  There is also the possibility of using implants to help anchor the denture to the bone.  This offers a more stable fit. Dentures are an affordable way to regain a fully functional set of teeth if your teeth have been lost to decay, disease or trauma.

The food you eat, the beverages you drink, and sometimes even the medications you take can have adverse effects on the shade of your teeth. We offer the KoR Whitening  system to combat those effects.

Periodontal disease- also known as gum disease- is an infection of the gums and the bone that support and surround your teeth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identify the following as signs of periodontal disease:

  • Bad breath or chronic bad taste in your mouth
  • Sore, swollen or red gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Painful chewing
  • Teeth that feel loose or sensitive
  • Shifting Teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Changes in bit

Routine dental checkups are particularly important if you have any of these periodontal disease risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • You take medications that cause dry mouth
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • A family history of periodontal disease

There are three stages of periodontal disease and obviously, the sooner it is identified and treated, the better.

Stage 1 – Gingivitis

This stage only affects the gums by causing inflammation.

Stage 2 – Periodontitis

Untreated gingivitis leads to periodontitis, which is inflammation around the teeth. It also can cause gum recession and teeth to loosen.

Stage 3 – Advanced periodontitis

This most serious stage of periodontal disease destroys the bone that supports the teeth and causes teeth to fall out. This stage often requires surgical intervention.
