Gingivitis — Beyond Don Draper

In Edison, we’re pretty close to the advertising hub of Madison Avenue in Manhattan. When it comes right down to it, we’re all victims of advertising anyway. A case in point is the word “gingivitis.” Anyone with a TV has heard that word, not from their enlightened knowledge of dentistry, but from Listerine TV commercials. […]


It’s Not the Tappan Zee

When it comes to bridges, you probably think of the more famous variety such as the Tappan Zee or the Brooklyn. But when it comes to replacing a missing tooth or two, the team at Gentle Dental has another type of bridge in mind — a dental bridge. Over 178 million Americans are missing at […]


Don’t Give Your Toothbrush the Cold Shoulder

Your toothbrush needs a new agent. After all, it goes about its daily business, fighting the evils of plaque and bacteria in your mouth, all with nary a second thought from you. Some of you don’t even give your toothbrush the requisite time of day, so to speak. We know what you’re thinking: what’s the […]


Gingivitis Isn’t Just a Madison Avenue Thing

People in New Jersey are just naturally skeptical. Maybe it’s our relative proximity to the advertising world of Madison Avenue in Manhattan. Still, like everyone else, we’re bombarded with advertising messages and some of them soak in. That’s true of the word gingivitis. Most of us have heard the term, but it’s not because of […]


Root Scaling and Root Planing

There are plaques you want to get, like MVP of the softball tournament. And there is plaque you don’t want to get, especially under your gums — dental plaque. When you develop dental plaque under your gums, the team at Gentle Dental needs to remove it with root scaling and planing. Who needs root scaling […]



These Habits Don’t Make Our Teeth Happy

Our teeth are like tiny enameled super heroes. They fight bacteria, plaque, and tartar all day in a never-ending saga. Kind of like those never-ending X-Men movies! In addition to the natural stuff, they also have to fight your bad habits or behaviors. You know, the stuff you do like chewing ice. At Gentle Dental, […]


It’s Like 9-1-1 for Your Teeth

In the same way your toilet never overflows during regular business hours, it seems emergencies with your teeth rarely happen at opportune times. At Gentle Dental, we do offer Saturday hours, but we also provide an emergency dentist when needed. Here are some situations when you may need that. Don’t ignore injuries, as prompt attention […]


Lose the Metal, Straighten the Teeth

Most of us have suffered through braces. Food stuck in the bands. Wires poking our cheeks. Bands rubbing on the inside of our lips. Friends alluding to our “metal” mouth. It wasn’t a cakewalk, but it was the deal if you wanted to have your teeth straightened. But now you can lose the metal, yet […]


Leave the Migration to the Snowbirds, Not Your Teeth

At this time of year, there are many New Jerseyans who migrate to the warmer environs of Florida. That kind of migration to escape the winter sleet and cold makes sense. Even hummingbirds leaving Jersey and migrating all the way to Central America makes sense, although they could have saved some wing work and just […]
