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 […]

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 […]

Be Sure to Use Up Your Dental Insurance Dollars

Last month we detailed how most dental insurance plans work, and why you may want to schedule an appointment with the team at Gentle Dental before the end of the year to avoid leaving insurance money unspent and gone for good.

Pushing Back that Invader Plaque

Good oral hygiene isn’t really much of a secret. You brush twice a day for two minutes, being sure to hit every tooth on both sides, and your gums. You floss once a day. That’s pretty much it. But when you get lazy and streamed 10 episodes of True Crime and are now so sleepy […]

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 […]

Kids and Bad Breath

OK, so your kids brush their teeth twice daily. They may even munch on some breath mints or sugarless gum. Yet there are still times when their breath is odoriferous, kind of like their tennis shoes! Why is this? Bad breath can originate from other causes beyond simply a buildup of plaque and bacteria in […]

Do You Dread Eating Cold Foods?

For some people, a cold Coke on a hot New Jersey day is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it’s tasty, and it’s cold. On the other hand, that’s the problem — it’s cold. At least that’s a problem for 57 percent of U.S. adults between the ages of 20 and 50. That group […]

Your Teeth Like These Foods

Now that the holidays are, unfortunately, behind us, you probably saw Elf once or twice. Did you find yourself watching Will Ferrell making those meals with Captain Crunch topped with syrup, candy corn, chocolate sauce, etc. and think, “Hey, that looks pretty tasty.” OK, not to that degree, but if you opt for a Dr. […]
