Healthy Mouth – Healthy Body
Safe Biological Holistic Dentistry By Dr. Vladimir Gashinsky – Millburn New Jersey Dentist
is good for the body as well as the teeth and gums.
Before we can get into depth on the difference, it’s important to look at what the
word “holistic” really means. The word holistic is not a reflection of the practices and
techniques used by a dentist, but of an overall philosophy of the role of oral care.
The word itself comes from “wholistic” meaning “the whole.” Truly holistic dentists will
educate patients on the importance of overall health and how dentistry can play a role
in your overall health.
At Dr. Gashinsky’s office, we have put an emphasis on a more natural or holistic approach
to dentistry. But what does that mean? As a holistic dentist, Dr. G
treats the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. There are differences between
truly holistic dental practices and more traditional dental practices. For example, Dr. G:
- uses metal-free alternatives to Mercury/Silver/Amalgam fillings
- uses the most advanced amalgam removal protocols
- spends time to listen and educate his patients
- even in his personal life, is holistic and chooses the most natural alternatives
- offers the latest advances in holistic dentistry
- advocates non-surgical, holistic alternatives for gum treatment
- uses only the most biocompatible aesthetics and dental materials (like Zirconia Dental Implants
- is up to date with the most current holistic and biological research
- being a holistic dentist, he understands the role of nutrition and preventative medicine
- stresses a more relaxing experience when you visit our dental office
- practices green, non-toxic, holistic dentistry
If you think about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, meridians (energy channels or pathways),
and chi (energy), you should give this ancient method of diagnosis and treatment a chance. It
has been used for thousands of years and is still used and taught to students all over the world.
