What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry is dedicated to using minimally-invasive treatments in order to keep the smile and body as pure and natural as possible. We prefer to use composites instead of crowns and air abrasion instead of dental drills. It’s all about doing less and accomplishing more for your oral health. To learn more, you can read our page about it here.

How often should I go to the dentist?

This really depends on your particular needs, but for most people, Dr. Silver recommends at least two checkup and cleaning appointments every year. With this, he’ll be able to keep your smile looking great and help prevent avoidable problems such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone, or O3, is enriched oxygen, and we use it in our practice to strengthen the teeth, reverse decay, fight infections, and improve the overall quality of your care in the least invasive way possible. You can read more about all of its different uses here.

How should I replace my missing teeth?

We’re happy to offer a variety of fantastic teeth replacement options, including traditional bridges, dentures, and mini-dental implants. Mini-dental implants are much smaller than traditional ones, but they are still able to rebuild the teeth from the root up and provide the most natural-looking and reliable results available today.

Why is my tooth hurting?

Dental pain can actually be brought on by a wide variety of causes (some of which are quite serious), so if you have a persistent toothache, be sure to schedule an appointment with us soon so we can discover the source of your discomfort and provide the relief you need.

Can you make my smile look better?

With cosmetic dentistry, we can eliminate just about any flaw you can imagine and give you the smile of your dreams over the course of a few appointments. Whether you just want a whiter smile, to get rid of chips and gaps, or a complete smile makeover, we can make it happen, and we know you’ll love your new look.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Holistic Dentistry of New Jersey is happy to accept a wide variety of dental insurance plans, and if you would like to learn how we can maximize your benefits at your next appointment, please give us a call today.
