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 […]

Wisdom teeth are really anything but wise. They actually are relics of our caveman ancestry when we had much longer jaws and ate lots of stuff like bark and roots that you don’t really find in the produce aisle these days. Back then, our caveman great, great, great, etc. uncle and aunt needed the extra […]



These Foods Make Your Teeth Smile

OK, so your diet has more in common with the game Candyland than with the vegetable chart. Your snacks tend to be mini Milky Ways or a handful of M&Ms, rather than a cup of almonds. Well, one day your teeth may respond to such snacking with a little S.O.S. in the form of a […]


Just the Facts on Fluoride, Ma’am

Fluoride has a great reputation. People think it’s the Superman of dental care. That’s why you can find fluoride in toothpastes, mouthwashes, and other dental products. Most municipalities add fluoride to the water supply to help fight tooth decay. It’s pretty much everywhere. Since your friends at Gentle Dental are all about preventive measures like […]


Bonding, Just Not at Thanksgiving

Bonding. You remember it from that experiment discussed in your Psych 101 class where the monkey bonded with that wire mesh surrogate monkey. You remember your Mom saying that “This Thanksgiving will be a wonderful time for you to bond with your cousins, you know, the ones who just got out of prison.” Or maybe […]
