Clear Braces

Dr. Michael Eisenbrock and Bensalem Dentistry have an orthodontic solution for every patient, and clear braces may be the one you’re looking for.  Traditional braces are still the most common way adults and children correct their teeth. Clear aligners have become popular, but aren’t always effective for everyone.  If your orthodontic treatment requires traditional brackets and wires, clear braces use this straightening technique with materials designed to avoid the metallic look dreaded by so many patients.

Aesthetic improvements have been made to traditional braces that can achieve the same results without the metallic look.  Brackets are now available in clear and translucent forms that are designed to resist staining.  To connect these brackets, wires the color of natural teeth are used.  The final look is not totally invisible but is much more subtle than traditional silver braces and doesn’t look metallic.  Almost any orthodontic patient can achieve the same great results as traditional braces offer with a better disguise during treatment.

Snap-On Smile

Dr. Michael Eisenbrock and the staff of Bensalem Dentistry know that patients are always looking for new cosmetic solutions, and Snap-On Smile is one way we can help you obtain a total smile makeover. If you want to change the look of your teeth without a single dental procedure, Snap-On Smile is the solution you’ve been looking for!

Snap-On Smile is a great option for anyone with small gaps between teeth, and stains or chips on teeth. Patients who currently use a removable partial denture are also good candidates for a Snap-On Smile makeover. You are able to get a Snap-On Smile in only two painless visits.  Once you choose a shade and style for your new smile the dentist takes an impression of your teeth. Ask us about options for a temporary to smile while the final product is being fabricated.  A Snap-On Smile is made of dental resin that is thin, but very strong.  The result is a wearable smile that fits right over your own teeth and looks like natural teeth.  Snap-On Smiles can be made for both upper and lower teeth, and you can eat and drink with a Snap-on Smile on.  In about three weeks, you’ll have a second visit for a final fitting and can leave the office wearing your new Snap-On Smile!

Water Flossing

Is flossing a part of your home oral care routine? If not, it’s time to start. Most people put flossing on the bottom of their priority list because they either disregard the importance or don’t know how to do it correctly. If you have a hard time using the floss that Dr. Michael Eisenbrock of Bensalem Family Dentistry gives you in your dental goody bag after a dental checkup, water flossing may make cleaning your teeth more fun.

Water flossing is a method that incorporates a hand-held device that removes food particles from between teeth using steady water streams. Water flossing is usually a substitute for patients who have arthritis or a condition that makes holding floss in the hands, difficult. Water flossing is also helpful for patients with braces because the water can reach into grooves where floss may not. Like traditional floss, water flossing reduces periodontal disease because it reduces inflammation around the gums. So whichever method you prefer, just be sure to have one.

If you have questions or concerns regarding water flossing, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at our practice, visit www.bensalemfamilydentistry.com for more information.
