Do I Need to Go to Taiwan for a Holistic Dentist?

I have a toothache. I need to see a dentist. I talked to my aunt about it. She said any dentist in the states would give me a mercury filled filling. She wants me to wait until spring break and come see her in Taiwan. It hurts a lot so I was thinking if I could get a holistic dentist here I wouldn’t have to wait to go to Taiwan.

Wei,

I wouldn’t wait for Taiwan, for three reasons.

  1. You are more likely for it to turn into an infection if you wait. That will not only mean a more extensive treatment, it could cost you the tooth.
  2. You’d have to fly to get to Taiwan. The air pressure will reek havoc on an already salty tooth. You’d spend the entire trip in absolute misery.
  3. All the risk and pain would be for nothing, because you can get a holistic dentist right here in the states.

Do an internet search for “holistic dentist” or “mercury free dentist“. Most dentists these days do composite fillings and will cater to patients who want to avoid mercury.
