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.

Remove Amalgam Fillings Greer from Palmer Distinctive Dentistry
Many people are well aware of the concerns about the effect of mercury on the human body. Mercury exposure can increase the risk for negative effects on the brain and kidneys as well as allergic reactions. Some people even go to great lengths to avoid mercury exposure in their diet and immediate environment. That being said, it may surprise some that one of the most common reasons for exposure to mercury is from dental amalgam, a combination of silver, tin, copper, and mercury that is estimated to be in over 80 percent of the fillings in America. Mercury exposure risk increases as it is heated, which is precisely what happens during daily activities such as brushing teeth, eating, or even grinding or clenching of the teeth.

 

Mercury has been a component in fillings for over a hundred years and is still thought to be safe by many dentists. It is, after all, a durable material and cheaper than metal-free alternatives such as composite. Thanks to advances in dental materials, composite fillings are becoming increasingly durable, less expensive, and widely popular due in large part to the concern over mercury exposure. A holistic dentist focuses on the correlation between oral health and the wellbeing of your entire body. Holistic dentists are committed to using biocompatible materials that are safe for you. They focus on treating the patient as a whole and take time to explain the purpose behind each recommended procedure along with the materials that will be utilized.

 

Some of the many benefits of using mercury free fillings include:

  • Color – Traditional metal fillings are silver and they can stand out and can be detrimental to the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. Composite fillings are tooth colored and blend in with a patient’s natural tooth color for a beautiful smile.
  • Durability – Composite fillings are not sensitive to temperature and are less likely to crack or pull away from teeth, making them a longer-lasting alternative.
  • Avoidance of Toxic Exposure – Composite fillings are made up of biocompatible materials, making them safe and free from exposure to toxic materials.

Patients who are in the Greer area and currently have amalgam fillings may benefit from a holistic dentist such as Dr. Palmer who is trained in the safe removal protocol. To determine whether your amalgam fillings should be removed, it’s important to schedule a consultation.
