Hurley Nicholas J DDS PA
My time at Dr. Hurley's office has been nothing less than outstanding. Since I had braces, I spent the better part of two years at Dr. Hurley's office. The friendly demeanor of the staff makes every visit comfortable. If I ever have any questions, I receive thorough answers that erase any doubt I might have. The staff's patience guarantees that every patient's voice is heard and needs are met. Now that my braces are off, I only go for occasional cleanings but it still feels like I never left every time I walk into the office. I have no hesitations about referring anyone to Dr. Hurley.

Dr Darr and her staff took excellent care of my disabled sister. They all went out of their way to treat her with care and gentleness. My sister was not a bit uncomfortable during her dental procedure. I did not get the names of the staff members, but all of them, including the front desk people, were so kind and helpful that I felt spoiled! I'LL BE BACK!Georgia Honeycutt
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
