You Don’t Need to Worry About a Root Canal

We use the latest dental technology to make a proper diagnosis and better plan your procedure. For example, we use our 3D imaging system to get a good look at the canals inside your teeth and identify any potential complications before your treatment begins.

Our team will thoroughly numb your mouth prior to your root canal treatment, but we can also offer dental sedation to keep you calm and relaxed throughout the procedure. You can choose to take a sedative in the form of a prescription pill.


We offer other options for relieving stress, including:

  • A complimentary bottle of water
  • Amenities to keep you comfortable

Don’t be scared of root canals in Florence! Call Advanced Dental Center at (843) 588-1919 to book an appointment with your dentist. Our office is a short drive from the Magnolia Mall.

Common Questions About Root Canals

When the soft inner portion of a tooth (known as the pulp) becomes infected, it can produce intense pain. This can happen as a result of an untreated cavity or an injury to the tooth that allows bacteria inside. A root canal involves removing the diseased pulp, sterilizing the tooth, and sealing it with a rubber-like material and a crown.

Although root canals have been made out to be the bad guy of dentistry, they are actually very beneficial. In the right hands, such as those from endodontist Dr. Nichols, a root canal treatment doesn’t produce any more discomfort than you would experience from getting a tooth filling. We’ll use local anesthetic to ensure a comfortable procedure. Sedation is always available as well.

Some insurance providers help cover the cost of root canals. We’ve also seen differences between plans from the same provider. We accept most dental insurance plans, and our team will do all we can to get you the maximum benefit. Also keep in mind our many payment options to help you manage the costs of your care.
