When should your child first visit the dentist? It’s probably earlier than you think! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry…Opens in new tab to AAPD website homepage… recommends that parents schedule their child’s first dental exam by their first birthday.
Setting good dental hygiene habits from an early age is critical to ensure a lifetime of oral health. We understand dental visits can be stressful for anyone, especially young children. That’s why we take extra care to provide a comfortable, fun, and kid-friendly environment.
We work hard to establish a positive view of the dentist early on, preventing detrimental phobias and stress down the road. We are sensitive to the specific needs of our younger patients and love contributing to their bright, healthy futures.
By building a trusting relationship with you and your child, we can start them off on the right foot! Schedule your child’s dental visit today.
The build-up of plaque and tartar around your gum line can lead to periodontal (gum) disease…Opens in new tab to Mayo Clinic website article about periodontal disease…. If left untreated, it can result in bone and tooth loss, severely damaging your smile and overall health.
Some common early symptoms of periodontal disease are:
Fortunately, our family dentistry team at Palms Dentistry is highly skilled at diagnosing and treating gum disease in the early stages, before it becomes a major problem.
The first step in safeguarding your family’s periodontal health is to come in for regular professional cleanings. Routine family dentistry appointments will remove and prevent the build-up of harmful bacteria. Our team will also help you and your family create a proper at-home routine.
In more severe cases, we may need to intervene with a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing. This procedure helps stop gum disease in its tracks, getting you back on the right path to excellent gum health.
Got cavities? You’re not alone. Cavities can show up in any stage of life. Let us help you fight back!
A cavity can pose a threat to your tooth’s structural integrity. If left untreated, the decay can lead to more serious problems such as tooth loss.
Fortunately, your Greenville dentist at Palms Dentistry offers metal-free fillings to protect your teeth and stop cavities in their tracks. He’ll fill the affected tooth with a natural-colored composite, preventing further damage.
Unlike silver fillings, metal-free fillings bond to the surface of your tooth, creating a stronger and more durable result. The natural color means the composite will blend in with your teeth. Your smile will be fully restored, and no one has to know you have a filling!
Our Palms Dentistry philosophy is “judgment-free” family dentistry. We understand you may have dental anxiety, which is extremely common for people of all ages. We are sensitive to your individual needs and fears, going the extra mile to create a comfortable, relaxing environment. It’s normal to feel nervous before a dental procedure. Some people are able to cope through relaxation techniques, but sometimes, it’s just not enough. That’s why we offer various forms of sedation dentistry, including inhaled, oral, and intravenous, to help keep you calm and comfortable. If dental anxiety or fear is preventing you from getting the care you need, don’t be afraid to speak up! Our compassionate team can discuss sedation options with you and come up with a plan to keep your visit positive and relaxing.
Accidents happen. When it comes to dental emergencies, time is of the essence. Seeking immediate treatment could save your tooth, or prevent a bad situation from becoming worse.
There’s no need to suffer. Call our office right away, and we’ll do our very best to see you ASAP.

If you have a severely decayed or cracked tooth, a dental crown can restore your tooth’s natural function, stability, and beauty.
A crown acts like a custom-fit tooth cap, sealing and protecting your tooth from further decay and bacteria. It blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile, strengthening the damaged tooth.
Getting a crown fit used to mean multiple appointments and waiting for your custom crown to come back from the lab. Not anymore! Our office has adopted advanced CEREC® same-day crown technology…Opens in new tab to the website homepage for CEREC technology…, giving us the capability to custom-craft your crown in-house. That means we can restore your tooth in a single visit; no additional appointments required!
Missing a tooth? A dental bridge could help restore your smile.
A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth held in place by dental crowns that have been cemented onto each of the adjacent teeth, creating a bridge effect. The artificial tooth then fills in the gap created by the missing tooth, resulting in a complete, beautiful, and functionally restored smile.
Extractions are sometimes necessary to prepare your mouth for a future dental procedure. Other times, a damaged tooth may need to be removed to prevent oral disease.
No matter what the reason for your extraction, you can rest assured knowing we’ll do it with a gentle and compassionate touch. We take a conservative approach, only recommending extraction as a last resort.
We do everything we can to make your experience as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We also offer excellent restorative options that can bring your smile back to its full shine!
The temporomandibular joints, called TMJ, are the joints and jaw muscles that open and close your mouth. Sometimes these joints can become inflamed or damaged, leading to chronic pain known as TMJ disorder.
Some common causes of TMJ include stress, teeth grinding, clenching, trauma, and even poor posture. TMJ disorder can lead to more serious conditions, so early detection and treatment are critical.
Our restorative dentist is an expert at using modern technology to diagnose TMJ disorders and focus on non-invasive treatment options to stop the pain.
TMJ pain can be severe, adversely impacting your daily life. There’s no need to suffer – call our Greenville dentist office to get the treatment and relief you deserve: 864-210-9075.
Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes your normal breathing pattern to be disrupted while you sleep. The muscles in the back of your throat that control breathing and airflow collapse, fail to keep your airway fully open. Sleep apnea can be life-threatening due to the chronic lack of oxygen supply to your brain.
Some common sleep apnea symptoms can be:
- Restless sleep
- Excessive weight
- Pauses in breathing (while asleep)
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to take them seriously and let our dental team know immediately. We use non-invasive, custom-made mouth appliances that keep your airway open, so that you can get a restful and safe night’s sleep.

Excellent staff! I have never been to Palms Dentistry before. Walked in without an appointment for gum pain. Did not wait long at all! Everyone was so nice and empathetic. Very pleasant experience. Highly recommend!
