Say Goodbye to Caveman Teeth

OK, so this has been a really weird spring thanks to this dumb virus. But life will get back to normal sooner than later. After all, how many jigsaw puzzles can one family do when they’ve never before done a single one together?! In the dental world, regular twice-yearly exams and professional cleanings with the […]


What is Root Scaling and Root Planing?

When you come in to see us for a regular cleaning and exam at Gentle Dental offices in Edison, our talented hygienists do some “scaling” on your teeth to remove plaque and tartar all the way down to the gumline and across the entire surface of each tooth. This keeps your teeth and gums healthy. […]


What’s Up with Sports Mouth Guards?

While the current craziness of this virus has sidelined sports of all levels, they will return. And if you have kids playing (or if you’re a weekend warrior yourself), they should be wearing a sports mouth guard for most of those sports. OK, maybe not golf! When we all get back out on the fields […]


Sugarless Gum Should Be in the Lineup

In a normal year, we’d be well into the baseball season by now, and whether you’re a Mets or Yankees fan, there’s one universal truth — there is always lots of gum chomping going on. Heck, dugouts have bowls full of Hubba Bubba, Big League Chew, and Bazooka. Tasty bubble gums one and all, but […]


Making Your Smile Look Mah-velous, Darling

Most of us older than our 40s probably remember Billy Crystal’s impersonation of Fernando Lamas on Saturday Night Live back in the mid-80s. His catchphrase was “It’s not how you feel, but how you look. And, darling, you look mah-velous.” At Gentle Dental, our three dentists have always felt the distinction between “general” and “cosmetic” dentistry […]

Trusty Tooth Replacement

It’s always good to have a trusty sidekick, who you can count on through thick and thin. The Long Ranger had Tonto. Gumby had Pokey. Sherlock Holmes had Dr. Watson. Your teeth can have a trusty sidekick if you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. At Gentle Dental we love dental implants because […]


Cavities are the Pits

When you’re in Alaska, crevasses are great…in glaciers. Here in Edison, we don’t like crevasses, pits, or fissures…in your teeth. Pits in your molars can be a real problem for your teeth. They’re just a result of genetics — either your molars have deep pits or fissures in the top or you’re lucky and they […]


Let’s Talk About Your Jaw Pain

Temporomandibular joint disorder can be a mysterious condition. The majority of dentists and doctors have little background with the condition and often overlook its symptoms and then attribute the patient’s chronic pain to other factors. Dr. Strober has specialized training from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey with temporomandibular joint disorder and […]


A New Toothbrush for a New Decade

Brushing your teeth twice every day for two minutes is the key to a healthy, happy smile. And that makes our team at Gentle Dental happy. So, why do so many people do such a poor job of brushing? They only brush for a short period of time. They miss teeth. They push too hard, […]


iTero for Invisalign® Edison, NJ

Scanners Aren’t Just for Your Computer

You’ve no doubt heard about Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that uses clear acrylic aligner trays to move the teeth rather than the much-despised metal bands, wires, and elastics of traditional braces. One of the features involved with the Invisalign system at Gentle Dental is the scanner we use to start the process. It’s called iTero […]
