Q: Do I really need to visit the dentist every six months?

Yes! Even if you’re committed to flossing, brushing, and using an antiseptic rinse, you can’t remove hardened plaque from your teeth. We have to do that in our Myrtle Beach dentist office using special tools. We also have intraoral cameras and digital X-rays to let us see symptoms of tooth decay well before you might notice them. Plus, Dr. Markusen will inspect your mouth during an exam for signs of oral cancer that may not be obvious to you.

Q: I’m on vacation and I need a dentist! Can you help?

We sure can! Our emergency dentistry services in Myrtle Beach are not limited to our current patients. If you’re in pain or have injured your mouth, call us immediately for an appointment so you can get back to your fun in the sun.

Q: How can I straighten my teeth without metal braces?

Dr. Markusen is a Myrtle Beach provider of Invisalign® clear aligners. With this system, not only can you straighten your smile without metal, but you can also keep eating whatever you want and cleaning your teeth and gums like normal.

Q: Do you offer treatment for TMJ dysfunction or teeth grinding?

We do. You don’t have to suffer through the swollen, achy jaw that comes with TMJ dysfunction. Our customized oral appliances can reduce your TMJ pain as well as headaches and migraines that may result from grinding your teeth.
