These Habits Don’t Make Our Teeth Happy

Our teeth are like tiny enameled super heroes. They fight bacteria, plaque, and tartar all day in a never-ending saga. Kind of like those never-ending X-Men movies! In addition to the natural stuff, they also have to fight your bad habits or behaviors. You know, the stuff you do like chewing ice. At Gentle Dental, […]


It’s Like 9-1-1 for Your Teeth

In the same way your toilet never overflows during regular business hours, it seems emergencies with your teeth rarely happen at opportune times. At Gentle Dental, we do offer Saturday hours, but we also provide an emergency dentist when needed. Here are some situations when you may need that. Don’t ignore injuries, as prompt attention […]


Lose the Metal, Straighten the Teeth

Most of us have suffered through braces. Food stuck in the bands. Wires poking our cheeks. Bands rubbing on the inside of our lips. Friends alluding to our “metal” mouth. It wasn’t a cakewalk, but it was the deal if you wanted to have your teeth straightened. But now you can lose the metal, yet […]


Leave the Migration to the Snowbirds, Not Your Teeth

At this time of year, there are many New Jerseyans who migrate to the warmer environs of Florida. That kind of migration to escape the winter sleet and cold makes sense. Even hummingbirds leaving Jersey and migrating all the way to Central America makes sense, although they could have saved some wing work and just […]


Fear the Reaper, Not a Root Canal

If you’re old enough, you probably remember the Blue Oyster Cult song titled “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” That’s a dumb title — everyone’s scared of that dude in the black hooded cloak. But you shouldn’t group root canals from the Gentle Dental team in there as something else to fear. Root canals are actually a […]


What’s Up with Silver Fillings?

Dental caries. Who knows what those are? You’ve probably never heard the term, or you may know them by their far more familiar name, cavities. Ah, we’ve all heard of those because just about every one of us has at least one filled cavity in their mouth. If you’re older, odds are most of your […]


What’s Involved in Your Regular Cleanings?

People tend to shrug off their regular twice-yearly dental cleanings. There is the thought that they can do the same job at home, so why bother keeping your appointment with Gentle Dental or any other dentist. But there’s a reason all dentists recommend twice-yearly professional cleanings — that’s about the time it takes for plaque […]

Dental Implants — the Superior Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are so commonplace these days, it’s tempting to think they’ve been around forever. Actually they’ve only been used for tooth replacement around the last 50 years. Before that people were trying to replace their teeth, but they didn’t exactly use the titanium found in today’s implants. Archeological digs have unearthed implanted seashells and […]


The Joint is Jumpin’ — TMJ

The longest word you’re probably going to see short of Mary Poppins and that whole “superfragilistic…” thing is temporomandibular. The temporomandibular joint is the hinge that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull. To talk, chew, or simply yawn the joint has to function correctly. When it doesn’t you have a temporomandibular disorder […]
