A down-to-earth, relationship-driven approach

Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams both graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, undergoing additional advanced training after dental school to master the art of full mouth reconstruction, surgery, restorations, and implant dentistry. In addition to a solid clinical foundation, they care about forming deep, human connections with their patients and fostering an atmosphere of trust, transparency, and friendship where patients can achieve the highest quality of life possible.

Root canals: Know before you go

The thought of a root canal probably makes you cringe. But there’s no reason to be afraid! A root canal is a simple procedure that can save your teeth and help you live a healthier life. At Costa + Williams Dental Care, we make the process of getting a root canal seamless and easy. We will coordinate your visit with our trusted specialist, and you can rest assured that they are an extension of our own practice.

Root canals are used to treat infections in the pulp of your teeth. Dental pulp is made up of nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels located in the center of your tooth. If this area becomes inflamed or damaged, it can cause pain and discomfort. Specialized tools are used to clean out the infected tissue inside your tooth and fill the space with durable and biocompatible material. No matter what phase of treatment you are in, you can reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Welcome to Costa and Williams

How do I know if I need a root canal?

The most common symptom of a root canal infection is pain, which may be mild, moderate, or severe. The pain can be felt on one side of the face or in the jaw and can range from throbbing to aching. It may spread to other areas of your head, such as your ears or eyes. Other symptoms could include swelling, fever, chills, and fatigue.

If you have symptoms of a tooth infection or abscessed tooth, call our office immediately. We will examine your mouth and perform tests to determine whether you need treatment.

Practice philosophy

Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams are passionate about delivering a seamless treatment experience, starting with a personalized, in-depth consultation and ending with ongoing support, even once the patient has gone home. They are in the business of caring for people, which means a holistic approach that goes well beyond the technical services they provide. The dentists schedule a limited number of patients each day, meaning that they have all the time necessary to focus on your needs and make you their top priority. No one is ever rushed, pressured, or upsold, as is common at other fast-paced, high-volume clinics. Instead, Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams empower patients with the knowledge, information, and education they need to be full, active participants in their care.

The process is easy and painless

Root canals are a wonderful treatment when they are needed. They can relieve pain and treat inflammation and infection, which can lead to a dental abscess. The most important thing to know about root canal therapy is: It saves teeth! If you have a tooth that’s infected or decayed to the point of pain and discomfort, we can help you. The thing that we most commonly hear from our patients after having root canal therapy is: “That was easy!”

Your detailed consultation

Many patients have had negative dental experiences in the past, including root canals that were beyond painful. Additionally, they may have had negative encounters with their dental providers that left them feeling uncertain or anxious. Dr. Costa and Dr. Williams understand how daunting it can be to face dental work that might be costly and time-consuming. They give you the space and time you need to build trust and embark on your treatment journey with minimal stress. Patients will leave their consultations with their questions answered, knowing what to expect in terms of costs, session time, material and techniques used, preparation, and recovery. Having realistic expectations goes a long way in establishing peace of mind.
