Dr. Peter Pang and his highly trained staff believe firmly that strong oral health is key to overall good physical health, and they work tirelessly to help their patients achieve the best in oral health care at Asheville Holistic Dentist.
Offering comprehensive dental care - general, cosmetic, orthodontic, and periodontal (gum and bone structural issues), Asheville Holistic Dental prides itself for its minimally invasive preventative care, which comes with fewer appointments so patients feel better with less dependency on prescription drugs.
Dr. Pang, who has been practicing for more than 25 years and has more letters after his name than contained in a can of Campbell Soup, has been recognized and honored by his peers and colleagues as a Fellow with the Pierre Fauchard Academy for his contributions to the dental profession.
The good doctor offers his patients a blend of high-tech and biologic (minimally invasive) procedures. And they love it. Testimonials on the practice’s website gush about the friendly practice. One commenter even said the Asheville Holistic Dentist practice has made him love going to the dentist again.
Asheville Holistic Dentist operating philosophy is to provide patients with aesthetically pleasing, non-toxic and biocompatible treatments. This means the practice can help restore smiles through practices such as laser fillings and laser gum treatments, and digital X-rays.
For instance, Asheville Holistic Dentist does not use mercury fillings. Instead, it uses a BPA-free (the poorly soluble chemical compound Bisphenol A, that has been linked possible to increased blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease) white filling material. This helps all patients in the office to detox from BPA exposure.
Dr. Pang also uses laser fillings to give his patients lasting results without pain. In surveys the practice has taken, more than 95 percent of its patients said they neither wanted nor needed a shot of anesthetic during their filling procedures.
Typically, the benefits of laser dentistry include: reduced healing time; seals the nerve ending to improve patient comfort during and after the procedure; decreases the need for multiple appointments; removes diseased tissue; promotes healthy tissue regeneration; removes decay not healthy tooth enamel; does not make the whining sounds of a drill; does not vibrate like a drill; seals blood vessels to reduce bleeding and post-appointment swelling; significantly reduces bacteria count in gum tissue; typically requires no stitches; avoids scarring, and avoids referral to specialists.
Dr. Pang has a variety of lasers capable of pediatric fillings, adult fillings, treating canker sores, and treating other dental conditions. Less than five percent of dental offices have as large a variety of lasers and the necessary skills to use them properly as Asheville Holistic Dentist.
Other services Dr. Pang offers include pin-hole grafting, a surgical technique, which is used as a minimally invasive alternative to treating gingival recession or gum recession. Common causes of gum recession include periodontal disease and teeth grinding. Aggressive teeth brushing can also cause gum recession. Too many people with advancing gum recession postpone or avoid dental visits because they fear the pain of traditional treatments. Dr. Pang’s procedures let patients smile freely again.
Dr. Pang can also offer CEREC crowns. This computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM) dentistry has allowed Dr. Pang, since 2001, to place crowns, inlays, bridges, and veneers into the mouths of patients. The popular CEREC crown has the benefit of being a same-day procedure because Dr. Pang captures digital images of the tooth and jaw and then mills a custom porcelain crown for installation while the patient waits. No return visit two weeks later required.
These are just some of the services offered by Asheville Holistic Dentist. Call today for an appointment to meet Dr. Pang and the rest of the dental crew. New patients are welcome to tour the office as well.
