Fluoride Beyond the Conspiracy Theories

One of the truly detestable things about the Internet is that it gives anyone a platform, regardless of their pursuit of factual evidence. That’s how a former Playboy centerfold became the poster child for doing away with vaccines. Uh, who wants a return of polio? Anyone? Measles? Fluoride has its own share of whacko websites. […]

New Tooth for the New Year

Since we’re now into 2019 (despite the creeping sense that we were just the other day worried about the Y2K bug), maybe it’s time to finally do something about that missing tooth of yours. How about a New Year’s resolution to have a new tooth? We can do that for you at Gentle Dental with […]

Whiter Teeth for the New Year

At Gentle Dental, we offer teeth bleaching to give our patients movie star-bright white teeth. People hear “teeth bleaching,” and they say, “Oh, you mean whitening, right?” We don’t. At Gentle Dental we only offer teeth bleaching to make your teeth a brilliant white. What’s the difference? Here’s the difference between teeth whitening and teeth […]

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!

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 […]

Tooth Makeup 101

At Gentle Dental, we’re all about teeth. If we had our way, there’s be a big tooth balloon floating overhead in the upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in Manhattan. We like to help our patients keep happily chomping away throughout their lives. And we feel it never hurts for our patients to know as much as […]


Dental Bonding Edison, NJ

Bonding is Easy

If you took Psychology 101 in college, you probably remember that experiment that explored monkeys and bonding with their mothers. It showed that bonding was pretty crucial to normal cognitive development. At Gentle Dental, we don’t know about that kind of bonding. 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. Well, you want to stump that guy? Then ask him this question: What is the hardest tissue in the human body? He’ll probably say something like […]
