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.

Greenville, SC area guests ask, “What do I look for when finding a holistic dentist near me?”

Holistic Dentist Near Me Greenville SC

Chances are if you are searching for a holistic dentist, you already understand that there is a definitive connection between the health of the teeth and gums and the rest of the body. To you, finding a dentist who uses safe materials and natural practices is important, and because of that, you will have to do your research.

 

When you go to a consultation, prepare a list of questions. Here are a few things you will want to look for when deciding upon a holistic dentist.

  • They do not use amalgam fillings. If amalgam is offered, then it is not a true holistic dental practice. Not only are amalgam fillings unsafe for guests, they are also unsafe for the office staff as well.
  • Dental crowns are a last resort. A holistic provider always uses the least invasive means possible to restore oral health. As such, holistic dental providers are very conservative when it comes to drilling. If a tooth has a cavity, a holistic dentist will preserve as much of the healthy tooth as possible and use a biocompatible composite filling. If the cavity is too large for a filling, inlays or onlays are the next option. Only in significant cases will a holistic dentist use a crown because it requires removing a large portion of the healthy tooth structure.
  • They offer alternative forms of treatment for gum disease. It is well know that gum disease is very common among adults and can lead to an increased risk for other health conditions. Unfortunately, many traditional gum disease treatments can be invasive. A holistic dental provider will offer less invasive options that minimize risk and optimize guest safety.

Dr. Palmer and his team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry believe in the power of holistic dentistry. In fact, Dr. Palmer established a local Center for Dental Medicine to help further educate people in both the dental and medical communities about the connection between disease in the mouth and the rest of the body. If you are ready for a dentist who will truly be your partner in health, call us today for a consultation.
