Do You Dread Eating Cold Foods?

For some people, a cold Coke on a hot New Jersey day is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it’s tasty, and it’s cold. On the other hand, that’s the problem — it’s cold. At least that’s a problem for 57 percent of U.S. adults between the ages of 20 and 50. That group […]

Baby Those Baby Teeth

Being a parent means lots of jobs. One of those is showing your kids the path toward proper oral hygiene. You, and they will be glad you made an effort in a lifetime of good teeth and gums. Since it all starts with the baby teeth, it helps to understand different factors about them, so […]

Root Canal Edison, NJ

The Misunderstood Root Canal

If there is one procedure that really gets a bad rap, it’s the root canal. For some reason, people equate this procedure with extreme pain, although it is no more painful than having a cavity filled. Plus, the rumors of medieval torture keep many patients from enjoying the true benefit of a root canal — […]

Your Teeth Like These Foods

Now that the holidays are, unfortunately, behind us, you probably saw Elf once or twice. Did you find yourself watching Will Ferrell making those meals with Captain Crunch topped with syrup, candy corn, chocolate sauce, etc. and think, “Hey, that looks pretty tasty.” OK, not to that degree, but if you opt for a Dr. […]

Crowns Beyond Royal Engagements

Crowns are in…the jeweled variety anyway. You have news of Prince Harry getting engaged to an American actress. And then there’s the second season of The Crown on Netflix. Americans have always been fascinated by the system of government we went to war to get rid of. At Gentle Dental, while we like a royal wedding […]

Why Teeth Can Become Brown or Grey — Tetracycline

Ever since it was added to the stable of antibiotics over 60 years ago, tetracycline has been a popular alternative to fight infections such as strep. But this antibiotic has an unfortunate side effect — it turns teeth brown or grey. The first case of reported tooth discoloration in children occurred in 1956. Unfortunately, many, […]

Braces Are So 1980

Have you been to a New Jersey high school lately? Or do you have children of your own or friends with high school-age children? If so, it appears as if just about every other kid has braces on his or her teeth. While that’s probably a little of an exaggeration, braces are anything but rare. […]

Teeth Not So Great? Tell Mom About it at Thanksgiving!

Living close to the Shore, we get our fair share of sun. And if you have fair skin, hopefully, you make regular visits to the dermatologist who probably then proceeds to use up a whole bottle of liquid nitrogen freezing your suspicious sun damage spots. But, annoyingly, you probably know a person who gets, even […]

Dentures Edison, NJ

Dentures Beyond the Cartoons

Dentures need a new PR firm. The image most people have of dentures is either the wind-up chompers from novelty stores or cartoons where granny’s dentures come out, and she’s left to gum the world to death. In reality, modern dentures are better constructed and fit better, and they provide a great alternative for replacing […]
