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.

Biological Dentist

Biological Dentist

Biological dentistry, also called holistic dentistry, is a field that continues to grow as people become familiar with this unique approach to oral care. A biological dentist such as Dr. John Palmer does more than consider how to repair dental concerns. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, SC, care is conducted in the way most beneficial to health and wellness.


In a biological dental practice, guests receive treatments that focus on their unique needs. One of the standard protocols of biological dentistry is elimination of potentially toxic materials from dental care. Amalgam fillings and metal dental crowns are common repair methods that are not found in the holistic practice.


Biological dentistry focuses on what is best for the body. Biocompatibility is a big factor in the longevity of dental work, and the degree that dental work affects oral tissues and the body as a whole. An example is the use of dental amalgam. This substance is a mixture of metals that are bound together with mercury. Once in the tooth, amalgam hardens. Mercury, however, escapes as vapor. In this form, mercury can be inhaled or absorbed through oral tissues. As it builds up in the body, mercury poses a number of health risks.


The biological dentist remains at the forefront of natural dental care, exploring proven techniques and new research that will benefit guests. The office of a biological dentist will be equipped with the right tools for the desires of holistic guests. Technologies such as digital x-rays and in-office filtration, the avoidance of fluoride and other potentially dangerous substances, and a consideration for each individual will commonly be found.


There are numerous reasons to choose a biological dentist for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental conditions. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we put your wellbeing first. To learn more about our services and our experience, schedule a consultation in our Greenville office.
