Specialty Dentistry

Your Family Denstistry

Our network of friendly dental practices in Maine provides you with easy access to the dental specialists you need, when you need them

Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontics. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.  Schedule an Appointment Today.

Periodontics

Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth? You might be thinking that it is from brushing too hard, but it is an indication you might have gum disease (periodontal disease). Too often, people tend to believe that the bleeding is normal; however, any bleeding when you brush is a sign that your gums are not healthy. It is usually a symptom of an infection in the gum tissue. When treated early, it is easily treatable and reversible without causing long-term damage. However, if you ignore the bleeding, the infection will continue, potentially leading to the loss of your teeth.

Endodontics

Our endodontists advanced training, techniques and technologies means that our patients receive the highest quality treatment and results. In order for teeth to remain alive and healthy, each tooth is supplied by nerves and nutrients through a chamber called the root canal. As decay spreads downward and into a decayed tooth, the decay encroaches on the pulp chamber of that tooth, which contains the nerve. This is often what leads to a toothache. In order to remove all of the decay from the tooth, it is sometimes necessary to remove the nerve of the tooth entirely and replace the empty canal with a root canal filling. 

Oral Surgery

Our staff has extensive training and experience in surgical procedures including dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, teeth in a day, and many other contemporary oral surgery & dental services. We focus on the needs of each patient to provide a comfortable experience in a relaxing and modern environment

My 21 month old son and I had an appt together. He has a lot of energy and has trouble sitting still. Dr. Henry and his assistant did such a wonderful job keeping my son entertained while they acclimated him the dentist 🙂 I’m so happy with my experience and recommend Gentle Dental in Biddeford for anyone in the area.

I’ve been coming to Gental Dental in Biddeford for about 2 years. Great atmosphere. I love the huge fish tank. Staff is super friendly. And Dr. Henry does quick and painless work. Liz is my hygienist and does an amazing job, ontop of our girly convos as if we have known each other for years. All around wonderful place!

I brought my 5 year daughter here and was not scared at all. They explained everything to her so she knew what they was doing. I got an appointment right away too. Unlike community dental 8 weeks and still could not get an appointment! I would recommend this place to everyone I know with kids!

Cheryl M.

The Saco Gentle Dental takes care of my son. They are very friendly at reception, quick to return calls, very kid-friendly with a treasure box for kids to pick a prize from after their appointment. I had a concern about my son’s teeth in between cleanings, they saw me right away and even taught me a better way to brush! They are wonderful.

Chritine F.

Best dentist I’ve ever been to. I’ve been going here for 7 years and have had several different hygienist and they’ve all been great. It’s one of the only places I’ve been where every employee is friendly–staff and medical professionals. I recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.
