Ozone Therapy

We are also among the few biological dentistry practices near Morganville NJ offering ozone therapy.  The ozone layer (layer in the atmosphere that prevents harmful UV sunlight rays from reaching the earth’s surface) has inspired notable applications in dentistry. Ozone molecules (composed of three oxygen atoms per molecule) bond together to form a colorless gas. This gas is used in dentistry for its proven wound healing and antibacterial properties. Ozone can be used in gas, oil, or water forms. We utilize ozone therapy when treating tooth decay, periodontal disease, endodontics, TMJ pain, and other infections. The effectiveness of ozone therapy in treating tooth decay is well documented. The antibacterial properties of ozone can help in preventing small cavities from becoming larger on tooth surfaces. Ozone’s effectiveness in treating periodontal disease (gum disease) has also been studied. Gum disease starts in the gums before spreading to the jawbone. In severe cases, periodontal disease will cause tooth loss. Ozone therapy disinfects areas of the gums that have been affected by chronic gum infection. Our holistic dentists apply ozone gas, oil or water directly to a patient’s gums.


Cosmetic Dentistry Using Metal Free Biological Comparable Materials

Metal materials that have been in use in dentistry have been linked to many unfavorable side effects. Metal hypersensitivity is one of those effects. Metals are known to cause immune system overreactions ranging from pain to chronic inflammation in some people. Let's not even discuss the effects of fillings containing mercury. Dental Healing Arts near Morganville NJ offers metal-free cosmetic dentistry that replaces all metals with biocompatible materials that not only look great and natural but are free of risks associated with metals in dental procedures. Whether it's braces to filings, dental implants, or crowns, you can rest assured we offer metal-free solutions.


Placement of Natural Dental Implants using Swiss Dental Solutions (SDS) Zirconium Implants

Do you want natural dental implants near Morganville NJ installed using SDS? If yes, Dental Healing Arts has you covered. SDS is an innovative, fast-growing company with an exemplary team of ceramic dental implant experts. The company produces ceramic implants from high-performance material (zirconium) and provides these implants to dentists globally. SDS also trains dentists on ceramic implants and holistic dentistry. SDS is a leading innovator in immunologically-neutral dental implant restorations. Dental Healing Arts uses zirconium implants made using Swiss BioHealth Concept. We can do immediate dental implant placement followed by immediate restoration. Dental implants don’t have to be lengthy procedures characterized by multiple visits. What's more, the metal-free implants are not only an aesthetic but a health solution.

Removal of Amalgams (mercury fillings) as per IAOMT SMART Protocols

Removal of Amalgams (mercury fillings) as per IAOMT SMART Protocols

Assuming you had teeth filled in the past and suspect they may be mercury fillings, we can have them removed safely following the safest protocol (IAOMT). Our very own Dr. Berkowitz is on the board of directors and is chairman of the mentor committee. Dr. Braun is also an accredited member of the organization and SMART certified.We use SMART (or Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) protocols which offer specific recommendations. The latest IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) safe amalgam removal protocols date back to 2019. As per the protocols, every dental amalgam restoration contains 50% mercury on average. Research also suggests that these restorations emit mercury vapor. What's more, this mercury isn't just a hazard to the patient but to dentists as well. The mercury vapor can be released during teeth cleaning, brushing, teeth clenching, and chewing. The release can also happen when the dental filling is being placed, replaced, or removed. The importance of IAOMT SMART protocols in removing mercury fillings can't, therefore, be overemphasized. We use IAOMT protocols that include, but aren't limited to the use of an amalgam separator that is properly installed to collect all mercury waste. We also have good filtration in places where mercury fillings removal takes place. Procedures also take place in well-ventilated rooms. Our patients also get absorbent for rinsing and swallowing before and after the procedure. Our dentists are also well equipped with personal protective gowns, masks, gloves, and face shields.


Biological Dentists with many years' experience

Dr. Mark Berkowitz and Dr. Gary Braun alone have 50-years+ of experience. When you combine with other staff members in the practice i.e. Stephanie Perreira and Megan Rothrock each with 10 years’ hygiene experience, as well as, Lisa Spinello with 22 years as a dental hygienist, Dental Healing Arts has nearly 100 years of combined dental practice experience to offer. There are very few holistic dentist practices in NJ that are comparable to Dental Healing Arts in regards to experience.



Dental Healing Arts is a HealthyStart provider near Morganville NJ. This service or approach is reserved for children. Through HealthyStart, we can straighten your child's teeth without braces. HealthyStart also opens the airway if they have breathing problems. HealthyStart is backed by decades of research and first-hand results. 4+ million children globally have had their teeth straightened minus the pain and cost associated with braces. How does HealthyStart work? Well, the approach utilizes appliances that address misaligned teeth and sleeping disordered breathing, which is common in 90% of all children. This silent epidemic causes breathing challenges during sleep and results in many other bad symptoms ranging from ADD/ADHD and chronic allergies to academic challenges, crowded teeth, aggressive behavior, sleep apnea, and mouth breathing. HealthyStart for better breathing: HealthyStart opens the airways by positioning the upper jaw and lower jaw forward. This, in turn, maximizes airflow while encouraging airway development. HealthyStart for straightening teeth: When straightening teeth, HealthyStart offers a non-invasive approach better than braces, surgery, or other common orthodontic options. The HealthyStart system guides the teeth to perfect alignment minus the high cost linked to braces. The system corrects oral habits and works faster. How to get this service @ Dental Healing Arts Step 1: Reach out If your child has symptoms of sleeping disordered breathing mentioned above and/or misaligned teeth, reach out to us. CALL: 732-591-1112 or email: Step 2: Quiz All children are subjects to a simple quiz to gauge their suitability for treatment via the HealthyStart System. You should expect questions on; whether your child snores, if he/she wakes up at night or suffers from overtiredness. The quiz will also ask for symptoms like teeth grinding and difficulty focusing. If your child is a suitable candidate, we will proceed to step 3. Step 3: Custom treatment plan Qualified candidates get a custom treatment plan meant to offer optimal results.

FAQs about holistic dentistry or biological dentistry

Holistic or biological dentistry can be defined as an approach to dentistry that focuses on dental health in relation to overall health. As a result, holistic dentists are simply dentists who focus on natural treatments or alternative methods as opposed to prescribing typical medicines.

Holistic dentistry approaches dentistry thinking about the health and well-being of a patient. As a result, there is an unmatched focus on preventive dentistry and alternative dentistry.

While a holistic dentist will take care of their patient’s teeth and overall oral health, he/she recommends extra treatment such as herbs, homeopathy, nutritional changes, and other treatments where necessary.

In holistic dentistry, conditions like tooth infections and tooth decay are approached via personal oral hygiene instead of focusing on dental cleaning services.

Holistic dentistry can be compared to traditional dentistry in two main ways discussed below;

Scope of standards and care: Holistic dentistry and traditional dentistry are similar in standards i.e., both maintain standards of care as per the American Dental Association (ADA). However, there are notable differences. While traditional dentistry is about preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries, diseases, and malformations of the dental formula (teeth, jaws & mouth), holistic dentistry has a similar quality and care scope apart from the fact that there are additional sets of standards and care.

Focus on non-toxic treatment: Holistic dentistry is focused on non-toxic treatment. There is an acknowledgment of potentially toxic materials used in restorative dental work. What’s more, holistic dentistry recognizes the presence and impact of dental toxins and infections on a patient’s overall health. Traditional dentistry offers the minimum or basic standards of care, which may include the use of potentially toxic materials in restorative dental work. As a result, holistic dentists don’t use mercury silver amalgam filling, among other dental materials that aren’t biocompatible to our bodies and may be responsible for causing autoimmune disorders and other health problems.

Addresses the root cause: Holistic dentists don’t simply treat dental problems. They go further and check the root cause of the problem to ensure it doesn’t happen again. For instance, the dentist won’t simply place crowns over worn teeth. They will go further and check what caused the worn teeth i.e., untreated TMJ disorder and treat that as well.

Uses biocompatible & non-toxic materials: Holistic dentistry emphasizes the use of dental treatment materials that are safe for the rest of the body, from sterile tools and non-toxic resin to mercury-free and metal-free fillings & crowns.

As mentioned, Dental Healing Arts offers biological dental solutions in New Jersey that are free of toxins and bio-incompatible materials. Our holistic dentistry offers solutions such as mercury-free dental crowns and fillings. What’s more, our colored fillings are 100% safe and free of mercury. We remove amalgam tooth fillings and crowns, replacing them with non-toxic materials.

High-tech and minimally-invasive treatments: Holistic dentistry also utilizes high-tech minimally-invasive techniques. There is an unmatched focus on avoiding unnecessary pain or procedures that can compromise a patient’s overall well-being, while producing sub-par results. Notable high-tech technologies/techniques include the use of advanced 3D-digital x-rays, laser treatments for gum disease (effective and avoids surgery), same-day crowns, and high-tech dental implants.

Treatment boosts overall health: Since treatment involves materials that are free of toxins and biocompatible, holistic dentistry promotes overall health and well-being. A dental visit doesn’t result in mercury or other metals in your mouth that are known to compromise immune system function in the long-term. What’s more, since underlying causes of dental problems are addressed (i.e., high blood pressure known to cause gum disease), patients are able to enjoy better dental and overall health.

Cost: Holistic dentistry may include procedures that aren’t covered by insurance. This can result in higher out-of-pocket costs.

Decay risks: Since holistic dentistry doesn’t incorporate fluoride in procedures/treatments, there are increased risks of tooth decay.

Treatment by unlicensed dentists: If you don’t check the credentials of your holistic dentist, there’s always a risk that you may be treated by someone who isn’t licensed.

Dental Healing Arts has NJ holistic dentists that are highly trained, licensed, and fully compliant with the ADA.

Holistic dentistry is practiced in dental offices that resemble regular dentist clinics. However, you may need to answer more questions than you would on a regular dental visit at a typical dental clinic. For instance, before treatment, you may be asked about your oral hygiene, physical health, and current diet.

Some tests may also be done (such as X-rays), if needed. While X-rays may be required, holistic dentists order far less X-rays. Blood pressure and blood sugar readings are also taken. Holistic dentists also review patients’ past health and dental problems before commencing treatment.

Besides physical health, they also consider emotional and spiritual health aspects of their patients. For instance, patients experiencing teeth grinding (bruxism) are likely to receive stress management education and pre-bedtime routines as part of treatment, alongside other remedies like a night guard.

Holistic dentists offer general and specialized oral care. They offer typical treatments like dental cleaning/checkups and composite filling to highly specialized services like ozone therapy and oral cancer screening. Biological dentists also evaluate a patient’s entire health, offer oral health technique education and alternative jaw, head, and neck pain treatment.

Composite filling offered by holistic dentists is free of mercury. What’s more, the filling doesn’t discolor the teeth or expose patients to uncomfortable procedures that require drilling. Composite filling also resembles dental enamel.

Generally, biological dentistry or holistic dentistry focuses on dental health and overall physical health. While a regular dentist will focus on the dental formula, holistic dentists will explore dental health issues and their relation to overall health. As a result, a holistic dentist may order diagnostic screening for high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol linked to dental health problems and advice on notable remedies to such problems. Dentists also educate and train on good oral hygiene.

You should visit a holistic dentist for many reasons. First and foremost, they offer a better level of care. If you want dental services that are free of toxins and other harmful effects or procedures (intrusive procedures), a holistic dentist is a good choice. Generally, you should visit holistic dentists when you are interested in alternative dental techniques and natural dental remedies. If you are concerned about amalgam fillings, a biological dentist can have them removed safely, and better alternatives installed.

The dentists are also great when looking for a link between your current dental health problems and overall health. You could also visit a holistic or biological dentist if you are supposed to undergo dental surgery but would prefer alternative treatment instead or surgery when absolutely necessary. What’s more, you should try a biological dentist when traditional dental treatments have failed.

Holistic dentistry history can be traced back to a researcher, Weston A. Price, who blamed common dental problems like tooth decay to the modern western diet. According to Price, foodstuffs like white floor, processed sugar, and pasteurized milk were largely to blame for tooth decay. His theory was later expanded by other pseudoscientists leading to the establishment of a new approach to dentistry that combined modern science and traditional/natural healing methods.

Other notable efforts that pushed holistic dentistry can be traced back to 1978 with organizations such as the HDA (Holistic Dental Association). The HDA was established by concerned dentists who were brought together by a common goal of using new treatment modalities that were excluded in dental school programs. Their push for additional treatment options led to the formation of the HDA which is a notable holistic dentistry organization providing a forum for developing and sharing health-promoting therapies.

In case you are wondering what it takes to become a biological dentist in NJ, you need to complete the same dental program/training done by traditional dentists. Generally, dentists in the US must take programs from accredited or approved dental schools. Holistic dentists get further training via specialized courses on holistic healing.

In summary, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree in a dental-related field. Holistic dentists also need to pass national board dental exams and have a clinical exam done at the state or regional board of dentistry level. For specific dentist requirements in New Jersey, check the state board.
