Your Gums — Vaunted Root Protectors

When we’re thinking of our oral hygiene, we’re focused on the teeth. This makes perfect sense, as their bright white appearance tends to dominate. But don’t overlook the pink tissue that is around those teeth. While they may look like a wad of Big League Chew at a Yankees game, your gums play a critical […]

These Cleanings Have Given Up Their Amateur Status

You’re a pretty diligent brusher. You even floss…now and then. And no one is walking around wondering why your breath smells like something coming from a Newark refinery. So, you think — who needs to see the Gentle Dental crew twice a year? What can they do with a “professional” cleaning that I’m not already […]

Fill ‘Er Up

If you’re over 60, you probably can still remember the days of full-service gas stations. You’d pull in, and a perky guy would run out and ask you what you needed. “Fill ‘er up with regular,” you’d respond. Then you’d sit back while the young guy filled the car and cleaned your windshield while he […]

Your Teeth Look Mahvelous, Darling!

Living in Edison makes getting to Manhattan and sitting in on TV shows like Saturday Night Live pretty doable. If you’re old enough, maybe you had the chance to see Billy Crystal’s Fernando Lamas character whose catchphrase was “It is better to look good than feel good.” At Gentle Dental, we believe your teeth should look […]

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 […]

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. […]


Dental Crowns & Bridges Edison, NJ

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 […]
