Making Your Smile Look Mah-velous, Darling

Most of us older than our 40s probably remember Billy Crystal’s impersonation of Fernando Lamas on Saturday Night Live back in the mid-80s. His catchphrase was “It’s not how you feel, but how you look. And, darling, you look mah-velous.” At Gentle Dental, our three dentists have always felt the distinction between “general” and “cosmetic” dentistry […]

Trusty Tooth Replacement

It’s always good to have a trusty sidekick, who you can count on through thick and thin. The Long Ranger had Tonto. Gumby had Pokey. Sherlock Holmes had Dr. Watson. Your teeth can have a trusty sidekick if you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. At Gentle Dental we love dental implants because […]


Cavities are the Pits

When you’re in Alaska, crevasses are great…in glaciers. Here in Edison, we don’t like crevasses, pits, or fissures…in your teeth. Pits in your molars can be a real problem for your teeth. They’re just a result of genetics — either your molars have deep pits or fissures in the top or you’re lucky and they […]


Let’s Talk About Your Jaw Pain

Temporomandibular joint disorder can be a mysterious condition. The majority of dentists and doctors have little background with the condition and often overlook its symptoms and then attribute the patient’s chronic pain to other factors. Dr. Strober has specialized training from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey with temporomandibular joint disorder and […]


A New Toothbrush for a New Decade

Brushing your teeth twice every day for two minutes is the key to a healthy, happy smile. And that makes our team at Gentle Dental happy. So, why do so many people do such a poor job of brushing? They only brush for a short period of time. They miss teeth. They push too hard, […]

Scanners Aren’t Just for Your Computer

You’ve no doubt heard about Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that uses clear acrylic aligner trays to move the teeth rather than the much-despised metal bands, wires, and elastics of traditional braces. One of the features involved with the Invisalign system at Gentle Dental is the scanner we use to start the process. It’s called iTero […]

Dry Mouth Can Be a Thing

Everyone can feel as if there isn’t a drop of moisture in their mouths at times. Maybe you have to get up and present in front of the board. Maybe your boss just asked if he could see you in his office for a minute, and the last five people to whom he asked that […]

Grind Your Coffee Beans, Not Your Molars

Just about everyone, except maybe your yoga instructor or the Dalai Lama, grinds his or her teeth some times. After all, our bosses, kids, job, and other things can drive us crazy. Occasional teeth grinding, medically called bruxism, isn’t really any big deal — you have to clench your teeth occasionally when your boss is […]

Teeth By the Numbers

This is the time of year when people make resolutions. Eat better. Join a gym. Read more books. Learn how to stop blading my lob wedge. Most people don’t include “Take better care of my teeth” on their list. But maybe we all should. After all, a healthy mouth is a key to a happy […]

Teeth As White as the Driven Snow

We get lots of snow in Edison. But after a day or two it usually isn’t its whitest. Is that kind of how you feel about your teeth? Cut your teeth some slack — it’s not easy staying white. Our tooth enamel is the hardest tissue of the entire human body, but it’s not superhuman. […]
