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.

Switch to Holistic Dentistry for a natural approach to dental health

It is entirely possible that this is the first time you have ever heard about holistic dentistry. This form of dentistry is increasing in popularity, but there are still many who have never heard about it and how it can be beneficial to your health. Holistic dentistry is an alternative method of practicing dentistry in which your dental health is considered a part of your overall health. This means that treatments are considered only if they benefit your whole body health. Drs. John Palmer and Debra Adams and the team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, South Carolina, offer holistic dentistry services to guests in the area.

Because many holistic dentists reject certain mainstream dental methods and treatments, it can be considered a controversial form of dentistry. Holistic dentistry is simply trying to balance the body’s health through the mouth. Read on if you would like to find out some of the differences between mainstream and holistic dentistry.

Fluoride use

Almost every modern dentist (who is not holistic) will prescribe fluoride toothpaste and other fluoride treatments. On the other hand, holistic dentists avoid recommending any product or treatment that makes use of fluoride. A holistic dentist’s primary concern with fluoride is how it can build up in the body. In large amounts, this substance is potentially dangerous to your health. It has also been questioned whether fluoride actually helps prevent dental cavities, so why risk your health?

Root canal treatments

Some holistic dentists are concerned with how having a root canal can affect mouth bacteria. The argument is that a root canal can lead to the proliferation and an increased number of harmful bacteria in your mouth. It is also argued that certain microscopic bacteria cannot ever be fully eliminated from the mouth, and a root canal can result in these microbes entering your bloodstream.
