Dr. Emily Hortman and our team take your overall wellbeing into account while treating your teeth and gums — that’s what complete health dentistry is. Your teeth and gums do not exist in in a vacuum, after all, and what starts in your mouth can greatly affect (or be affected by) the rest of your body. Complete health dentistry is a philosophy that involves big picture health in each treatment plan. It’s an approach Dr. Hortman passionately provides Little River, North Myrtle Beach, and surrounding communities.

Perhaps no treatment is as fundamental to your overall health and wellbeing as the routine checkup and cleaning, which should occur every six months. By starting with a strong foundation of preventive care and hygiene, we remove the agents that cause decay and infection from the surface of your teeth — and Dr. Hortman routinely checks for the early warning signs of potentially serious dental problems. Early detection of gum disease, tooth decay, and other issues is key to providing conservative treatments that maintain as much healthy tooth structure as possible for your continued wellbeing.

Complete health dentistry brings families in Little River, SC whole-picture dental care, beginning with comprehensive treatments from general and preventive maintenance to advanced cosmetic and restorative solutions, like porcelain veneers, dental implants, and more. It’s our practice philosophy, and it’s what keeps our patients smiling happily and healthily for years on end.
