Questions About Dentures

In this month’s first blog, we got into some of the basics of dentures. Whether full or partial, dentures can change your life if you’re missing most or all of your teeth. They allow you to eat most foods again, they help maintain the angles of your facial anatomy, and they give you reason to […]


Replacing All of Your Teeth with Dentures

From the windup variety that chomp, chomp, chomp across a table, to the kind that surprisingly come out in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, dentures have long been fodder for jokes. But when a person is missing either all or most of his or her teeth dentures can change their life. It’s easy to assume most […]


More About that Jaw Joint of Yours

There isn’t a single person out there who wasn’t glad to throw away the 2020 calendar and put up a new one for the New Year. Whether it was worrying about the virus, whether it was coping with working from home, whether it was the lack of being able to get away and travel, or […]

Is Candy Really the Enemy of Your Teeth?

Since this blog will hit our website on the Friday before Halloween, it’s a good time to discuss candy and teeth. At Gentle Dental, we’re not one of those practices that rains on Halloween, offering to pay kids for their candy and what not. Besides, in this weirdest of years, Halloween and school is odd […]


Dental Floss is Your Friend

While the Internet has its obvious pluses, it also has lots of, uh, less than admirable traits. One of them is the way anyone can put something out there and other people simply believe it to be true. That’s how a woman whose sole claim to fame was that she had been a Playboy Playmate […]
