Emergency Dental Care

While tooth decay is the most common cause of toothaches in adults, infections, gum disease, teeth grinding and an abnormal bite can also cause pain in your teeth. If you have experienced facial trauma, pain in your teeth for more than two days or swelling and abnormally red gums, it is important to get a complete oral examination to determine the cause. This pain would be considered a dental emergency, and Dr. Michael Eisenbrock of Bensalem Adult Dentistry can help to restore your oral health.
Pain in your teeth can arise for a variety of reasons, and you might not always know why. Sometimes pain can come on suddenly if pieces of food come in contact with a decayed area of your tooth or if heat or cold create pressure near your nerve. If you lose a filling or crown, this can expose your nerve and cause pain as well.
If your tooth pain worsens over time, you may have food that is stuck between you tooth and gum. This can occur if you do not brush and floss well enough, allowing bacteria to multiply in this area and for infection to develop. This infection can become an abscess, which can develop at the root of the tooth in the bone or in the gums. If not treated, it can be incredibly painful and harmful to your health. If your tooth pain is accompanied by a bad smell or taste, it is very likely an abscess.
If a tooth is giving your trouble, we can provide you with the care you need to recover in Bensalem, PA. Call (215) 638-9952 to schedule an appointment. For more information, visit www.bensalemadultdentistry.com.

Many of us wish we could change something about our smile.  We might want to improve our alignment and brightness or correct chips and cracks.  While there are many ways to improve the cosmetic appearance of our smiles, veneers provide my patients with the opportunity to completely makeover their smile look.  Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are individually crafted to meet an individual patient’s needs.  Some of the many cosmetic problems veneers can correct include:
  • Discoloration
  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Gaps
  • Misalignment
Since veneers cover your existing tooth structure, you can create a truly picture perfect smile. Bensalem, PA patients that have chosen veneers have been thrilled with the results of their new makeover.  In as little as two visits to the office, you can find confidence in a new, beautiful smile.  Veneers are a great way to completely makeover your smile, but they aren’t for everyone.  If you are interested in this cosmetic dental service, schedule an appointment at my office.  At Bensalem Adult Dentistry, we are happy to help patients decide if veneers are the best option for their smile needs.

Many of our patients visit us looking for a solution to their missing teeth. If they are missing a good number of teeth or need to get them removed due to infection or a medical condition, we can offer them different types of dentures. There are two primary types of full dentures: immediate and conventional, as well as partial dentures if our patient does not have to get all of their teeth removed.
With conventional dentures, our patient gets their remaining teeth removed and they wait a few weeks or months for their gums to heal completely. Once they are healed, Dr. Michael Eisenbrock fits their new set of dentures. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are fit as soon as their teeth are removed. Impressions are made of our patient’s teeth before they are pulled, and Dr. Eisenbrock has the dentures fabricated. Once the teeth are pulled, these dentures are placed over the gums.
Caring for your new dentures requires regular cleaning in order to remove the plaque, stains, and food particles. It’s important to brush the surfaces of the dentures similar to brushing your natural teeth. Also consider that your oral health still needs good care as well, including gentle brushing your gums, palate, and tongue each day.
Call us at 215-638-9952 or visit www.bensalemadultdentistry.com for more information about dentures.

Dental Implants

Do you have a missing or extracted tooth?  Luckily, there are many ways to restore the natural look and feel of your smile.  There are a number of restorative services offered at my practice, but for the most realistic and long lasting restorative solution, I recommend dental implants.  Dental implants are one of the best ways fix smile gaps because they are strong, reliable, easy to maintain and highly versatile.
The stability of a dental implant is a direct result of how it is placed in your smile.  Implants are attached to your jaw bone, rooting the tooth to your smile naturally.  Each implant is then topped with a custom fabricated crown that makes your new prosthetic virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.  There is no need to modify any of your surrounding teeth, nor will you need to adjust your daily oral hygiene habits.
If you would like to learn more about implants and their many benefits, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have.  Contact us here Bensalem Adult Dentistry or visit www.bensalemadultdentistry.com  for more information.
