Bad Breath

The topic of bad breath can be tough to confront, whether it’s yours or someone else’s. And, whether or not you know you have it, it’s always a good idea to take steps against bad breath—as they are often one in the same with good dental hygiene.
Most bad breath can be traced to a source in the oral cavity, whether it’s trapped food particles or potent beverage residue, bacterial and plaque buildup, unclean dental prosthetics, gum disease, or even cavities. Many of our patients here at Garrison Family Dentistry regularly ask us what they can do to prevent bad breath.  Besides completing all necessary dental work and consistently undergoing regular exams, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce bad breath on your own.
  • Drink plenty of water: Drinking water helps flush away food and beverage residue. It also keeps your teeth and gums hydrated, which inhibits bacteria growth.
  • Reduce intake of coffee and alcohol: Both substances can contribute to suborn breath and dehydration.
  • Abstain from all tobacco products: Cigarettes, pipes and chewing tobacco all contribute to fouls breath and other periodontal issues that feed into the problem.
  • Brush, floss and use alcohol-free mouthwash every day: Good oral hygiene controls bacteria and prevents a number of dental problems. Your at-home hygiene efforts are extremely important in keeping your smile beautiful and fresh.

Dental Bridges

We offer several restorative dental services here at Bensalem Dentistry.  When patients visit us to restore a tooth in full, but they are not candidates for dental implants, we provide them with reliable, affordable dental bridges.  Each bridge is custom crafted from high quality dental porcelain, ensuring that your new prosthetic blends in naturally with the rest of your smile.  The result is a beautiful smile and restored oral health.
As the name suggests, bridges are used to bridge the gap left behind by a missing tooth.  This is accomplished by modifying the surrounding teeth to support the new prosthetic.  Each supporting tooth is fitted with a crown and the bridge is bonded in between.  As a result, our patients are left with a beautiful smile that looks and feels just like the real thing.
If you are not a candidate for dental implants and are interested in dental bridges, call us today at 215-638-9952 or visit our website,www.bensalemdentistry.com for more information.

Full/Partial Dentures

If you have missing teeth, you know how it can impact your life. Missing teeth can change the way you chew and interfere with your speech. Having missing teeth can also make you feel self-conscious about smiling. Dentures are one option for replacing missing teeth.
At Bensalem Dentistry, we are happy to offer you options when it comes to dentures. We offer conventional and immediate full dentures, as well as partial dentures.
  • Conventional Dentures: Depending on your situation, conventional dentures may be a great option to restore your smile and the function of your teeth. After your remaining teeth are extracted, the gums are given time to heal. When an allotted healing time has passed, your dentures will be placed.
  • Immediate Dentures: In some cases, you may not need to wait for your dentures to be placed after extraction. Immediately after your teeth are extracted, your dentures are placed while your gums heal. Our dentists will determine if you are a good candidate for this type of denture.
  • Partial Dentures: If you still have some natural teeth, which don’t require extraction, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures.
Our experienced and caring team at Bensalem Dentistry offer a variety of dental care, such as cosmetic services including veneers, teeth whitening and bonding. Dr. Michael Eisenbrock's procedures also include bone grafting, crowns, bridges, braces and periodontal care. We believe in providing our patients with individualized treatment plans and outstanding customer service.
For more information on dentures or any of our other services, please call Bensalem Dentistry at (215) 638-9952 or visit our website,www.bensalemdentistry.com

Discolored, chipped and cracked teeth, can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. At Bensalem Dentistry in Bensalem, PA, we have years of experience improving smiles with procedures, such as bonding.
The process of bonding involves using a composite resin, which Dr. Eisenbrock applies to the tooth or teeth. The first step in the process includes making the surface of the tooth a little rougher. Next, a liquid is applied to the tooth, which allows the resin to adhere to the surface of the tooth. The resin is applied and molded into the proper shape. The resin is hardened with the help of a laser applied to the tooth. The last step involves polishing the tooth in order to create a natural appearance.
Bonding is a great option to improve the appearance of your teeth for several reasons. It is one of the least expensive cosmetic procedures. It can also often be completed in one visit. Often more than one tooth can be bonded at the same dental visit. Another advantage of bonding is the procedure often does not require any anesthesia.
We combine the most advanced technology with old fashioned values. We believe our patients are our greatest asset. Dr. Michael Eisenbrock and the rest of our team take pride in providing exceptional dental care for your entire family. For more information on bonding or any other cosmetic service, please call us at Bensalem Dentistry, (215) 638-9952.
