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 […]


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 […]


The Air is Sweet, the Anxiety Gone

At Gentle Dental, patient comfort is our goal. Of course, this applies to removing pain caused by decay or gum problems. It applies to issues with TMJ. And it applies to patients simply being comfortable in our Edison, New Jersey offices. Many patients have serious anxiety surrounding visiting the dentist. At Gentle Dental we use […]

Fluoride Beyond the Conspiracy Theories

One of the truly detestable things about the Internet is that it gives anyone a platform, regardless of their pursuit of factual evidence. That’s how a former Playboy centerfold became the poster child for doing away with vaccines. Uh, who wants a return of polio? Anyone? Measles? Fluoride has its own share of whacko websites. […]

New Tooth for the New Year

Since we’re now into 2019 (despite the creeping sense that we were just the other day worried about the Y2K bug), maybe it’s time to finally do something about that missing tooth of yours. How about a New Year’s resolution to have a new tooth? We can do that for you at Gentle Dental with […]


Whiter Teeth for the New Year

At Gentle Dental, we offer teeth bleaching to give our patients movie star-bright white teeth. People hear “teeth bleaching,” and they say, “Oh, you mean whitening, right?” We don’t. At Gentle Dental we only offer teeth bleaching to make your teeth a brilliant white. What’s the difference? Here’s the difference between teeth whitening and teeth […]


Don’t Give Your Teeth the Gift of Tartar

Fish sticks aren’t exactly a holiday staple. So, you may not be thinking much about tartar…sauce. At Gentle Dental, we’re not big lovers of tartar sauce, but we downright despise dental tartar! Avoiding tartar buildup is paramount to a healthy mouth; it’s the start of most dental problems. Here’s a brief explanation of how tartar […]

A Cover-Up Gordon Liddy Would be Proud of

Since we’re coming into the holidays, most of us will be on display to a degree. Now that sounds clinical, but think about it. We go to holiday parties for our work or our spouse’s work. There, especially for the spouse, there is a sizing up going on by co-workers. The same is true going […]

Five Ways Invisalign Beats Braces

At Gentle Dental our patients love Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that moves the teeth through the use of clear plastic aligner trays, rather than the traditional metal bands and wires. Both teens and adults prefer Invisalign mainly due to the fact that wearing the clear aligners doesn’t make them a “metal mouth.” But there’s more […]

Moving the Teeth Without Anyone Knowing

When you see a group of teens in Papaianni Park or at Bovine Burgers, it seems just about every one has braces. This can’t be, right? Actually, it can. In the U.S. over two thirds of teenagers will have some sort of orthodontic treatment. Since the majority of teens have it, you’d think braces wouldn’t […]
