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 […]

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.

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, […]

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 […]


Root Canal

Fear the Reaper, Not a Root Canal

If you’re old enough, you probably remember the Blue Oyster Cult song titled “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” That’s a dumb title — everyone’s scared of that dude in the black hooded cloak. But you shouldn’t group root canals from the Gentle Dental team in there as something else to fear. Root canals are actually a […]


Dental Fillings

What’s Up with Silver Fillings?

Dental caries. Who knows what those are? You’ve probably never heard the term, or you may know them by their far more familiar name, cavities. Ah, we’ve all heard of those because just about every one of us has at least one filled cavity in their mouth. If you’re older, odds are most of your […]
