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 […]

But we do know about dental bonding, which may not help your cognitive […]

Don’t Put This Enamel on Your Wrought Iron

Know someone who’s Mr. Smart Guy, seemingly knowing something about everything? Maybe he didn’t go to Princeton, but he lives there and thinks it has rubbed off on him.

Should You Go Electric?

Sure, at Gentle Dental we give you a toothbrush after your twice-yearly cleanings and exams. But we’d gladly give you more floss instead. You see, it’s not that we don’t want to help you out by making sure you have a new toothbrush, it’s just that we think maybe you should switch to another type […]

Kids and Bad Breath

OK, so your kids brush their teeth twice daily. They may even munch on some breath mints or sugarless gum. Yet there are still times when their breath is odoriferous, kind of like their tennis shoes! Why is this? Bad breath can originate from other causes beyond simply a buildup of plaque and bacteria in […]
