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.

Total healthcare from a holistic biological dentist in Greenville, SC

Holistic Biological Dentist Greenville SC

Holistic dentistry is an approach to oral health care that really focuses on the guest’s mental, physical, and oral wellness altogether. There is research published about the strong connection between issues in the mouth and overall health. At the same time, there are also diseases and other conditions that can affect the teeth and gums. If you are in the Greenville, SC area and you are looking for a biological dentist who offers this approach to oral care, you can find that at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry.


In addition to the mouth-body connection, holistic dentistry also places a great deal of importance on the materials used in all procedures. Holistic dentists only use mercury-free, biocompatible materials.

So why should a guest choose holistic or biological dentistry?

The potential toxicity that comes from mercury used in amalgam fillings has been a popular topic in the medical community. Exposure to mercury can have health risks and compromise the immune system.


Amalgam fillings quickly became the material of choice for many dentists because they were perceived to be the strongest material available. In fact, chances are you have (or at least know someone who has) an amalgam filling.


In reality, amalgam fillings can expand or shrink based on temperature, which can put the tooth at risk for fractures and additional restoration work. Mercury vapor release can occur when consuming hot or cold beverages, chewing, or even brushing the teeth.


A holistic dentist believes that the best bet is to use safe, biocompatible options for fillings like composite resin. These fillings are strong, stable, and as an added benefit, they can be color matched to blend in with the rest of the natural tooth.


At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, our focus is always on complete health. We spend a lot of time teaching preventative care, which arms our guests with the education needed to maintain a healthy mouth. By taking the time to make oral health a priority, guests ensure that they can enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile. For more information on the many benefits of holistic dentistry, call our office and set up your consultation.
