Are Whitening Toothpastes Just Hype?

Shelf space is the thing when it comes to a trip to your local Stop & Shop these days. Where there formerly was one type of Chips Ahoy, now there are like six. There once was a single Special K cereal; now you could get lost in their variety. The same is true for the […]

Be On the Lookout for Oral Cancer

During your twice-yearly exams with the team at Gentle Dental, we do more than simply make your teeth look shiny and bright. Sure, removing tartar and plaque and polishing your teeth are important. But even more important is our examination for the signs of oral cancer. That’s why we pull on your tongue, push on […]


Wisdom Teeth Edison, Metuchen, & South Plainfield, NJ

Summertime if Time to Pull Those Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth get their name because when they come in the person is older and hopefully wiser. Well, since they generally come in during the late teenage years, that could be up for debate, but that’s their name just the same. At Gentle Dental we remove this third set of molars in our teenage patients […]


Dental bridges

Don’t Forget the Bridge

As technology continues to race ahead all around us, it’s easy to overlook facets of life that still work just fine without anything new crazy changes. Pens are like that. They’re about the same as they were 50 years ago. Why change them? Hockey skates haven’t changed much. Same with football cleats. The rearview mirror […]


Dental Cleainings

Our Cleanings Are All-Pro

We sometimes see a patient who hasn’t been to the dentist in years. His or her logic? “I brush twice daily and I even floss…sometimes. What else are you going to do in your office that I can’t do at home?” In reality, good dental hygiene is a partnership between home care and professional cleanings. […]


Root Scaling | Edison, NJ

Pushing Back that Invader Plaque

Good oral hygiene isn’t really much of a secret. You brush twice a day for two minutes, being sure to hit every tooth on both sides, and your gums. You floss once a day. That’s pretty much it. But when you get lazy and streamed 10 episodes of True Crime and are now so sleepy […]

Gingivitis Isn’t A YouTube Thing

On the Internet, it’s easy to get confused. Between kids eating bottles of ketchup and Tide pods, it would be easy to assume anything remotely like the word ginger would be related to red-haired people. After all, there are many facetious videos questioning whether or not “Gingers have souls.” Just don’t lump gingivitis in with […]


TMJ | Edison, NJ

Lots of Vowels. Lots of Pain.

Your temporomandibular joint holds an important place in your facial anatomy. It connects our jaw to the rest of the skull. Without your temporomandibular joint, you couldn’t talk, chew, or even yawn. This joint is in use almost continually, and you can imagine the problems that can arise if the joint is out of alignment. […]

Your Kids and Their Teeth

Sometimes being a parent is like the Tasmanian Devil on the old Bugs Bunny cartoons — it’s a whirlwind experience. Parents are going full speed in so many directions they can forget or even think about their kids teeth. After all, they’re just baby teeth and going to fall out anyway, right? While that is […]


Porcelain Veneers | Edison, NJ

Dental Porcelain

At Gentle Dental we use dental porcelain for a variety of prosthetics. We also offer composite resin for some of these, such as veneers, but we prefer to use dental porcelain. We think it looks the most like natural tooth enamel and is very durable. Here’s some more information about dental porcelain and why we […]
