I moved to NC 2007. This is 2014. Thank the great God above I am no longer looking for a dentist (hopefully) for the rest of my life!! I have been in a dentist chair for many, many years. Dr. Merrill is what I am accustomed to finding in all my adventures of great dental chairs. He and his staff have what it takes to make you feel comfortable from the time you enter to saying "see younext visit!" . I know, I drive almost 3 hours. They are worth every mile. Great crown work Dr. Merrill and your assistant is so sweet. I love how Deborah cleans my teeth... Nothing left but the white! Haha! Audrey, thank you. You were right on top of explaining everything I needed done right up front like Dr.Merrill had said. So until then, See you next Visit!! (With pleasure)

NorthStar Denistry is by far the best office in the Charlotte Metro office. I have had 3 different dentists in the area. All of which have been personable and professional. Dr. Merrill and his entire staff are not only personable and professional, they go above and beyond and care for their patients in a way I have never experienced. I cam there for a second opinion and found myself switching to his office and gladly make the drive from Charlotte to Huntersville because of the feeling of positivity I get from his being there. All I can say is they are absolutely amazing!

I went in for a consultation last year and Dr. Wells said he could do the root canal right then and there, the entire procedure took less than 20 minutes from start to finish I couldn't believe how quick it was. I highly recommend them, in fact I have to have another root canal and they were my first call.

My friend recommended Dr. Langdon's screening and I can say that it I made a good decision of taking it. Now I am certain that I am having a healthy life, thanks to Dr. Langdon!

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
