If you have been avoiding the dentist or looking for a more personalized dental care experience, we welcome you to contact our Lansdale dental office for an appointment. Routine dental care is an important part of overall health and wellness. Patients who schedule regular appointments benefit from in-depth dental cleanings and exams.
Our dental team also provides routine screenings for a variety of dental problems at these visits. At Brookwood Dental Associates, we provide general dental services at routine appointments. We also offer general dentistry through preventative treatments. Because general care is preventative in nature, we can spot developing concerns and keep them from becoming complex issues.
General Dentistry in Lansdale, PA
Our general dental services help prevent the development of future oral health problems:
In the event of a dental emergency, contact our office for prompt care. We can provide treatment to patients who are experiencing excessive bleeding or tooth pain. Our dentists can also repair or replace broken restorations, injured teeth, or lost permanent teeth. We recommend that patients call us immediately if they have a dental emergency so we can provide them with immediate treatment.
Our office uses nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas. Dental sedation is a treatment method that relaxes patients and allows us to provide patients with pain-free care. Sedation is also beneficial for patients with dental fear or anxiety. Please let us know if you or a loved one have dental anxiety and require accommodations. We will work with you to help you get the dental treatment you need.
Tooth extractions are often essential to improve the health of the teeth and gums. Patients may think that dental extractions are painful, but we use local anesthetic and/or dental sedation for patient comfort. In addition, dental extractions can relieve tooth pain caused by impacted or infected teeth. If you notice any changes in the comfort of your smile, contact our office for treatment.
If you or your child play contact sports like soccer, basketball, or lacrosse, they need a sports mouthguard. Our custom-made sports mouthguards help prevent damage to orthodontics as well as tooth injuries or loss. Compared to store-bought mouthguards that can easily fall out during a game, our mouthguards are meant to fit patients precisely.
As a family dentist office, we can see patients of all ages. Our dentists encourage parents to schedule visits for their children so they can learn the best ways to care for their smiles. Early dental care in a warm and friendly environment also helps prevent dental anxiety in patients as they grow.
General Dental FAQs
Do you want to know more about your general dental options? Learn more with these answers to these frequently asked questions:
When should my child begin visiting the dentist?
We recommend that parents schedule their child’s first dental visit after they have turned one year old. Pediatric dental visits are important because they create a foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. At routine dental visits, we will examine the child’s smile and may provide a dental cleaning. As children grow older, we will also recommend treatments that prevent cavities, including dental sealants and fluoride.
What are the signs of tooth decay?
The most common symptoms of a dental infection often include:
- Tooth sensitivity
- White tooth stains
- Visible holes in the teeth
- Tooth pain
Tooth decay is caused by harmful bacteria that irritate and eventually eat away at the tooth enamel. Patients can prevent decay by brushing and flossing twice a day. We encourage patients to schedule dental appointments bi-annually, or twice a year.
Is dental sedation safe for children?
Yes, nitrous oxide is a safe sedation method that we use in our office. This is a mild sedative that we can use for complex procedures including tooth extractions or dental fillings. We use nitrous oxide for patients of all ages.
