Braces Are So 1980

Have you been to a New Jersey high school lately? Or do you have children of your own or friends with high school-age children? If so, it appears as if just about every other kid has braces on his or her teeth. While that’s probably a little of an exaggeration, braces are anything but rare. […]

Teeth Not So Great? Tell Mom About it at Thanksgiving!

Living close to the Shore, we get our fair share of sun. And if you have fair skin, hopefully, you make regular visits to the dermatologist who probably then proceeds to use up a whole bottle of liquid nitrogen freezing your suspicious sun damage spots. But, annoyingly, you probably know a person who gets, even […]

Dentures Beyond the Cartoons

Dentures need a new PR firm. The image most people have of dentures is either the wind-up chompers from novelty stores or cartoons where granny’s dentures come out, and she’s left to gum the world to death. In reality, modern dentures are better constructed and fit better, and they provide a great alternative for replacing […]

You Don’t Want Your Kid to Be Like Linus

The Pain that is TMJ

Sometimes you can have pain when eating, talking, or even just moving your jaw. The origin of the pain may be hard to locate. Maybe it feels like it’s at the back of the jaw. Maybe it’s in your neck. Maybe your ears are ringing. While not always easy to diagnose, these symptoms and others […]

Fluoride is Our Favorite Element

At Gentle Dental, we are big fans of fluoride. Now, this can sound kind of like being president of the chess club. What’s different from fluoride adoration and having the periodic table on your bedroom wall? But there’s a reason we’re fond of this chemical ion of the element fluorine — it’s the ultimate defender […]

More About the Superstars of Dentistry — Implants

Dental implants are mainstream these days. Most people know about this option for replacing a missing tooth. It’s easy to assume they’ve been around a long time, but that’s not the case. Various interesting types of implants have been around since ancient times, but they wouldn’t exactly qualify as the same technology that goes into […]

This Tartar Isn’t For That Bass You Caught

Living so close to the ocean, it’s easy to find fresh seafood. And, while frowned upon in the kitchen, you may like it best with some tartar sauce on top. This could be your Mom’s fault, as she covered up the less-than-fresh fish sticks of your youth with gobs of tartar sauce. But when it […]


Dental Bonding Edison, NJ

Bonding, Not James Bonding

Every summer you can reliably find a James Bond movie marathon on TBS. At Gentle Dental, while we love 007, we love another type of bonding more, dental bonding. Dental bonding is a simple, non-invasive option for fixing a variety of cosmetic issues with your teeth. What is dental bonding? In dental bonding, we apply […]


Don’t Seal Your Deck, Seal Your Kids’ Teeth

Many people don’t know this, but their molars can resemble a glacier in the Alps, filled with fissures. Those fissures are prime locations for the formation of decay because no matter how well the person brushes and flosses odds are they can’t get into the bottom of the fissure. This is especially a problem with […]
