General Dentistry in Doylestown, PA
General dental care offers preventative services against problems such as tooth loss, damage, and infections:
If you or your child play contact sports such as football, basketball, soccer, or lacrosse, you need a sports mouthguard. Our custom-made sports mouthguards conform to teeth to protect them from injury or loss. They allow patients to focus on their game rather than their mouthguard.
In the event of a dental emergency, please call our dental office. We can treat patients with toothaches, broken dental restorations, excessive bleeding, and missing permanent teeth. It is important for patients to call us if they have sudden symptoms. If you notice changes in your teeth or gums, contact our dental office for prompt emergency dental care.
Perfect Smiles in Doylestown is a family dentist office that sees patients of all ages. We help families receive dental care using family scheduling. Using this system, each member can get care for their dental concerns. Our team can offer pediatric and geriatric care, as well as services for everyone in between.
Dental extractions are often needed for impacted or infected teeth. Our dental office can provide simple and complex tooth extractions to remove teeth that are at or below the gum line. Removing problem teeth keeps remaining teeth healthy. If needed, we can replace permanent teeth with dental implants.
General Dentistry FAQs
Learn more about our general dental treatments with answers to these frequently asked questions:
Do you provide root canals and dental fillings?
Yes, we can save a natural tooth from decay with a root canal and dental filling. During a root canal, we use specialized dental instruments to remove the infected pulp within the tooth. Once the inner tooth chamber is clean, we sterilize the area and apply gutta-percha. We can also provide a dental crown if the tooth is weakened or worn down.
Dental fillings are typically used to fill dental cavities, which are a symptom of tooth decay. Signs and symptoms of a dental infection often include:
- Toothaches and tooth pain
- Sensitive teeth
- Brown or white stains on teeth
- Visible holes in the tooth enamel
Why are dental sealants good for children?
Dental sealants are used to protect the back molars from tooth cavities. Children are prone to cavities and tooth decay more than other age groups. Bacteria are often hidden in the back of the mouth, which can be hard to reach with at-home care. Sealants are painted onto the molars to protect them from tooth decay. They cover the chewing surfaces of the teeth and help prevent dental infections.
Are tooth extractions painful?
Many patients may think that tooth extractions are painful. However, dental extractions can actually help alleviate the pain caused by serious dental infections or impacted teeth. During the extraction procedure, we use a localized anesthetic to numb the treated area. We may also use dental sedation for longer procedures.
