My husband and I brought our kids here for the first time a few days ago. They were amazing with them. They told me that my daughter had a cavity and I needed to bring her in and get it taken care of. Yesterday was her visit and they were really good, but by the time my daughter got home she was still swollen and said she was in pain. We noticed a large white mark on her lip and gave her ice to help. This morning though it was very swollen and the white spot had doubled in size. We found out by her doctor that she had been burnt pretty bad. She now has to be on two medications to help it heal and not get infected.

I had seen Dr. Cox's hygienist for a cleaning last week when Dr. Cox located three cavities. He was able to get me back in for the fillings in only one week. He and his staff were very pleasant and did a good job of explaining to me the options for dental work and the costs involved. They contacted my insurance for me to figure out what my copay would be. Dr Cox was very gentile with the filling work and even gave me a little prop to rest my teeth on when my mouth started to tire out. I would recommend to anyone.

My husband and I both had appointments on the same day, for our final denture fittings. The staff was lovely to deal with, polite and if not a barrel of laughs (we're jokesters) were professional, answered all questions with courtesy and a smile. We travelled from below Charleston to visit this practice, and it was well worth the trip! Can't wait for our "Hollywood" smiles to be ready, we are confident that we will get top-knotch products.

I went to Dr. Loftis for a root canal and I'm so glad I did!! He was great, his staff was great!! This was my first root canal experience and it was a pleasant one. I heard horror stories so I didn't know what to expect?? It was painless!! I was so relaxed and comfortable I actually fell asleep. Lol!! I highly recommend Dr. Loftis

Dr. Michael Loftis, DDS
Outstanding doctor! He made sure that I was comfortable and asked me many times if I was in pain. Once I was numb the work was done quickly. He was honest about the fact that I might feel pain, but it was not that bad. The rotation of Advil and Tylenol worked well for me!

Great Office. Have been going to this office for about 4 years and love the staff. They are friendly and caring. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!
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
