Dental FAQs in Lansdale, PA
Learn more about what we provide in our office with these dental questions and answers:
Do you offer pediatric dentistry?
Yes, as a family-friendly dental office, we are able to provide dental treatment for every member of your family. For younger patients, we will ask that parents bring their children in for an appointment after their baby teeth have come in. We can also offer sealants and fluoride treatment to elementary and middle school-aged children.
Should I bring anything to my first appointment?
Yes, please bring your dental insurance information to your first appointment. If you have been referred to us by another dentist, please ensure that they send copies of your dental records.
How long is my first dental appointment?
Your first appointment should take an hour if you are a new patient in our office. During this first appointment, we will provide you with a cleaning, consultation, and exam. You can also ask us any questions about your treatment options or symptoms.
How can I treat dental anxiety?
At Brookwood Dental Associates, we want our dental office to be a calming and relaxing environment. Our friendly office staff and dental team want all patients to feel welcome when they visit. Please let us know if you or a member of your family has dental anxiety or fear. We can provide accommodations to you so you can receive comfortable care in our office.
Can I visit the dentist if I’m pregnant?
Yes! It’s safe to visit the dentist if you are pregnant. We recommend that pregnant women visit for routine cleanings, as pregnant women are more likely to develop gingivitis due to hormonal changes. The only treatments we will not recommend for pregnant patients are elective procedures, including cosmetic dental treatments.
Can I replace all of my missing teeth?
Yes, we can replace anywhere from a single lost tooth to a full mouth of missing teeth. If you are missing full arches of your permanent teeth, dentures may be the best restorative option for you. Our dental team will often recommend implants to secure dentures. When compared to removable dentures, implant-secured dentures offer permanent restoration.
