Pennsauken Family Dental offers dentistry for the entire family. We understand that adults & children have different needs & we address them all. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest quality of care, while kids want to be comfortable & respected. That’s why our doctors have extensive experience working with both adults & children. We can make your dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Preventive Dentistry includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards and patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This plastic coating, which is clear or tooth-colored, is applied to deep pits & grooves. This seals them in the areas where decay is most likely to begin. At less than half the cost of conventional fillings, without anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most important preventive services we offer.
SEALANTS & FLUORIDE TREATMENTS
Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay & there are ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can cover the deep grooves in your back teeth & extend their life while helping the prevention of cavities.
SMILE MAKEOVERS & REJUVENATION
Do you have old or broken teeth that are decreasing the confidence in your smile? Come in for a consultation and see how our doctors can help you regain your confidence. With a complete smile makeover, we can easily replace missing or broken teeth, correct discoloration or simply give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Now you can have significantly whiter teeth in a matter of a few days using advanced teeth whitening techniques. Both comfortable and affordable, our teeth whitening procedure involves wearing a specially crafted tray for a few hours in order to achieve a surprising difference in your smile!
INVISALIGN® CLEAR ORTHODONTICS
Invisible aligners are the revolutionary way to help you get even, straight teeth without noticeable, painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, invisible aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guides your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets. Tooth impressions are taken, from which customized aligners are made that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12 to 48 months—no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. We proudly feature Invisalign® brand aligners.
DENTAL & RESTORATIVE IMPLANTS
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the span of about four to 12 months.
TMD (JAW PAIN) THERAPY
Commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked, a subtle misalignment in the temporomandibular joint can be a common, significant source of head and neck pain. If you have frequent and severe head or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to investigate our doctor’s life-changing approach to correcting these TMD problems.
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to offer our patients the option of using new, advanced fillings (made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury) as an alternative to traditional silver fillings.
STATE-OF-THE-ART, ANTISEPTIC PROCEDURES
Our sterilization procedures meet the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We heat-sterilize all hand-pieces and instruments after each use. We only use ADA-approved disinfectants, disposable gloves, masks, eye protection & barrier covers at all times. Your family's safety is our top priority.
