Joshua Mciver Millsaps, DDS
This dentist is phenomenal! I was new to the area and very hesitant in choosing a new dentist - I had heard great things about Dr. Millsaps and decided to go to him...I am so glad that I did! He has all of the latest and greatest equipment, his hygenists are so friendly and eager to explain anything that I had questions on, and his front office staff is top notch! I would highly recommend this dentist, office, and staff to anyone!

I have been going to Dr. Millsaps for many years now, and have always been pleased (and have the healthy teeth and gums to show for it). The facility is clean and modern, and his staff are amazing. My hygenist, Carmella, is friendly, fast, and efficient. I moved to Charlotte for years and still drove back to Hickory for Dr. Millsaps, I would not dream of going anywhere else.

Eldridge Lena F DDS
Very skilled dentist! I've had some bad experiences with dentists from when I was younger, so when I found out I had a cavity, I was very nervous. Dr. Eldridge was gentle but firm and the process was surprisingly fast and painless. Great Experience and would use her for all my future dental works.

Had a great experience yesterday. Dr. Sigmon performed a root canal yesterday through a crown which went very well he and his assistant explained each step. It was also nice that I could watch TV and not think about it ;-). Great Job at Dr. Sigmon's Office, Thank you!!

White, David DDS
I was very pleased with the end result of my orthodontic care by David White and is staff. They felt more like family by the end of my treatment than office staff. Dr. White has such a caring giving heart that goes well beyond the call of duty to his patients!

Very professional, knowledgeable, and kind staff. Having TV's ON the ceiling in. the exam room is a nice touch.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
