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.

Zirconia Implants

Biological dentistry is designed to address dental problems in a way that most closely mimics nature. Dr. John Palmer provides each guest with an individual care plan based on his or her unique needs. When replacing missing teeth, attention is given to the natural structure and the impact that materials may have on oral tissues and on the body as a whole.


Guests of Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, SC have often come to us because they know the value of biocompatibility. They want to partner with a dental team that considers how dentistry affects overall health. We are proud of our commitment to biological dentistry and the results we can achieve with materials like zirconium.


Typically, dental implant treatment involves the placement of titanium fixtures into the bone tissue in the jaw. Titanium is considered biocompatible because it has been used in medical implant procedures such as hip replacement for many years. However, research has indicated that the implantation of metal in the body can produce adverse reactions. Zirconium can achieve excellent results with a much lower risk.


Zirconium is ideal for guests who have a known metal allergy. This ceramic substance is hypoallergenic, which means it will not provoke a response from the body’s natural immune system. With more people developing allergies and sensitivities to common substances, the use of non-metal materials makes more sense than ever before.


An important consideration made by biological dentists is that whatever is placed into the mouth is put into a specific chemical environment, and reactivity must be anticipated. In the case of metal, the reactivity within the oral environment can lead to corrosion and the ultimate breakdown of the metal restoration. In contrast to metal, ceramic is highly resistant to the effects of the body’s chemistry.


The choices regarding metal dental restorations have largely been based on mechanical strength. While at one time, metal crowns and other fixtures were the most durable options, advances in dental technology have made new choices available. Ceramic zirconium restorations may have initially been appealing due to their natural appearance, but they are now praised for their impressive durability as well.


Your Greenville, SC holistic dentist brings you options for metal-free tooth repair and replacement. Contact Palmer Distinctive Dentistry for more information about zirconium dental implants.
