We focus on performing holistic dental care that is good for the body as well as the teeth and gums. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Gashinsky treats the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. With extensive training in homeopathy and nutrition, Dr. Gashinsky spends countless hours doing continuing education with like minded practitioners to keep up with new medical and technical developments in his field which he is bringing to his practice to help his patients achieve a best holistic dental care possible. In his Holistic Dental Center he addresses all aspects of dentistry and wellness. From holistic dental cleanings that use ozonated water and herbal solutions free from fluoride and chemicals to using bio-compatible filling materials, metal free crowns and the use of lasers, Dr. G as he is affectionately called by his staff and patients; and his team are able to address all of our patients needs under one roof in a safe, clean and toxic free environment. One of the issues Dr. G. is passionate about is keeping you safe from mercury exposure. Because of this, he practices safe amalgam removal using the stringent protocol set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) which he is an accredited member. Dr. G. feels very strongly about his oath "to do no harm" is why he practices biologic dentistry and offers an alternative and predictable treatment to patients needs.
Another important facet of his practice is that he is a premier provider of Zirconia implants, which he is 1of only 5 in the state of New Jersey. Zirconia implants are not prone to corrosion and are more aesthetic because they are non-metallic and do not cast a grey shadow as some metal implants may. Another important factor to remember is that there is a percentage of the population that have allergies and sensitivities to metal so this could be an excellent alternative. Speaking about allergies and sensitivities, Dr. G. offers reactivity testing for over 6000 dental materials for those patients that have a history of many allergies, sensitivities or health concerns.
The foundation of our teeth is the surrounding gum and bone. Because bacteria can invade the gum line causing disease that can easily enter into the bloodstream, Dr. G. takes treatment of gum disease very seriously. He makes sure a bacterial analysis under a phase contrast microscope is performed on every patient at every check-up appointment. Here he can see the cause of the disease and treat it accordingly. With the use of medical grade ozone, lasers and probiotics; gum treatment does not have to be something to dread. For those who don't have active disease but have gums that have receded creating sensitivity and can lead to decay, Dr. G. offers a revolutionary way to "lift" the gum tissue to cover the roots without cutting or stitching. This technique, Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation allows Dr. G. to re-establish the natural position of the gum with little to no discomfort, no downtime and is minimally invasive.
The goal of Dr. G. and his Holistic Dental Center of Millburn NJ is to get his patients to their optimal health while using natural, homeopathic, chemical-free alternatives to get his patients to their optimal health. Every year Dr. G. also hosts wellness events where guest speakers from other aspects of health and wellness to share their knowledge in a fun and educational environment. His commitment to his patients overall health is certainly unmatched as is his dedication to his field.
