Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) has long been suggested for tooth brushing and as a tooth whitener. Baking soda dates back to ancient Egypt. The ability of baking soda to neutralize acids makes it an inexpensive remedy for full body issues as well as the prevention of dental disease. Ten patients ranging in age from 20-60 years old participated in the study involving tooth brushing with baking soda. At baseline they were screened for hypertension, salivary flow, salivary PH, gingival tissue appearance and bleeding.
They were instructed to brush daily with baking soda instead of tooth paste. They were to put a half a teaspoon of baking soda into their hand, wet the tooth brush with water and brush their teeth with it. They were also asked to add a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water to make a mouth rinse. After rinsing, they were to instructed to spit out the rinse and not rinse. They were given PH strips and asked to record the PH of their saliva upon waking each morning and record the results.
Patients returned 1-2 weeks later. The group showed reduced PH scores over the test period and also reduced bleeding and signs of gingivitis. Patients reported their mouths felt cleaner.

Our commitment to you, as your comprehensive Randolph dental office, is to provide you with great care using today’s best equipment and techniques. One way we’re going that is through laser dentistry.
One of the most common uses for laser dentistry is in providing periodontal therapy. With periodontal therapy through laser dentistry, Dr. Goldstein can target only the areas that need treatment. What’s more, because laser dentistry heals as it cuts, the process is more comfortable, less invasive, and involves a shorter recovery period.
The specific tool we use at our Randolph office is the iLase from Biolase. What sets iLase apart from other dental lasers is its versatility. As a self-contained tool without any cords or foot pedals, Dr. Goldstein can move to any position he needs to in order to deliver care. And thanks to the iLase’s wraparound finger switch, the device can be precisely controlled.
To find out more about iLase from Biolase, visit their website. And to find out how Dr. Goldstein is using iLase every day at his Randolph dental practice, give us a call. Our team would be happy to answer any questions you might have about laser dentistry or one of our other services.
With laser dentistry, Dr. Goldstein is giving his patients from Randolph, Rockaway, Mendham, Chester, Morristown, Denville, Morris County, and beyond excellent care that’s precise and also more comfortable.

A revolutionary tool is helping Dr. Goldstein detect and treat tooth decay earlier, when it can be almost impossible to detect with the naked eye. It’s called DIAGNOdent. With it, Dr. Goldstein is able to quickly and easily examine teeth for signs of decay where it can hide, along fissure lines or inside biting and chewing surfaces.
DIAGNOdent works by using a fluorescent light to compare the reflection wavelength of teeth against a healthy baseline. What this means for patients is simpler, shallower fillings that preserve more of the tooth’s natural structure.
That’s what we call conservative dentistry.
The aim of conservative dentistry is to help patients keep as much of their natural smile as possible, and for as long as possible. DIAGNOdent is a unique tool that’s helping Dr. Goldstein do that every day.
If you’d like to find out more about how DIAGNOdent is helping us, call our Randolph dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldstein. We serve patients from Randolph, Rockaway, Mendham, Chester, Morristown, Denville, Morris County, and beyond.
