Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Affordable dental care in Greenville, SC can be found at an amalgam-free holistic provider

Affordable Holistic Dental Care Greenville

For a long time, amalgam was the most commonly used material to fill cavities. When amalgam first became widely used in dentistry, it was because it was an affordable alternative to gold fillings. These days, we know a lot about the health risks associated with amalgam, which is why we only utilize biocompatible alternatives to amalgam. The good news is that biocompatible materials have become increasingly more affordable, allowing guests to enjoy the health and aesthetic benefits of amalgam-free dentistry.

Why we don’t use amalgam

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings are made of a mixture of metals, including up to 50 percent mercury. For years, information has been surfacing about the toxic nature of mercury. Mercury is a highly toxic substance that can have severe negative impact on the body and the environment. It is because of this that mercury is no longer used in many products.

 

When mercury is used in the amalgam filling, it has the potential to be escape and expose the guest. When the amalgam filling is heated, as is the case with daily activities like brushing, biting, and chewing, the guest is exposed to mercury vapors. These vapors can be inhaled and absorbed by the tissue in the body. Research has linked mercury exposure to several health conditions.

Affordable and safe alternatives

Holistic dental care is based on a simple concept. The health of the mouth and the body are interconnected. This means that the materials used in the mouth can have an impact on systems throughout the body. Instead of using a potentially hazardous material, we use biocompatible composite resin. Composite resin can be used to fill cavities in a safe way. It does not expand or contract with temperature as much as amalgam, which can cause fractures in the teeth. It can also be color matched to blend in with the teeth for an aesthetic restoration.

 

When it comes to your oral health, it’s important to find a dentist who doesn’t cut corners. We never choose a dental material solely on cost. Our number one goal is to provide affordable dental care that is safe and mercury-free. If you are in the Greenville, SC area and you would like more information on holistic dentistry and its benefits, call Dr. Palmer today.
