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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
