Greenville patients receive many benefits with a biological dentist
These days, a lot of the focus for general dentistry is on treating existing problems. While this is necessary, it seems like regular dental care and preventative care seem to get lost in the shuffle of our busy daily lives. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, our team focuses on making dental visits about total health. By focusing on biological dentistry, we help our patients make the most out of coming to our office.
So, what is biological dentistry? Biological dentistry focuses on the big picture. We look at oral health as it relates to overall wellbeing. There is a proven connection between the health of the mouth and the rest of this body. By taking proper care of the teeth and gums, we can help minimize the risk for many health conditions.
One of the biggest components of biological dentistry is a focus on safe materials. We do not utilize any metal restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal crowns, or titanium dental implants. Instead, we make sure all of our restorations are composed of biocompatible materials.
As dental professionals, we understand that issues do come up that need to be treated. While we are always here to place a filling or a crown when needed, we also want to understand what the cause of the issue is. If we can help find the underlying cause of the dental problems, we can prevent them in the future and improve health.
Chances are you have heard of the dangers of mercury toxicity. Mercury is a component of amalgam fillings and can be detrimental to the health of the body. We use composite resin materials for fillings and bonding to ensure that there is no exposure to Mercury. We are specially trained and we follow strict protocol for the safe removal of existing amalgam fillings.
By making the choice to visit with a biological dentist, you are ensuring that your health and wellness is at the top of your priority list. For more information on biological dentistry, please contact our office to set up a visit.
