General Dentistry

Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.

Cleanings And Exams

Here at Mayfair Family Dentistry on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, we specialize in family dentistry, and we want to provide you with high-quality care. You should schedule routine check-ups with your dentist every six months to keep up with your oral health. Routine check-ups and cleaning help preserve your oral and dental health.

Regular check-ups are important because they help you catch dental issues early on. For instance, oral cancer takes someone’s life every hour. However, many cancers are curable if they are caught within the beginning stage. Check-ups are also important for those who have had dental work done in the past. Your dentist will check on any existing fillings to ensure that they are not cracked. Cracked fillings create spaces in the teeth where bacteria can fester and cause infection and tooth decay. If your dentist is able to catch dental issues early on, then you have more time to discuss financial arrangements to cover the procedures that are necessary. Here at our practice, we offer in-house payment plans.

If you are concerned about having yellow, dingy teeth, you may want to consider getting your teeth cleaned regularly. During a professional dental cleaning, a hygienist will be able to remove most of the stains and discoloration from your teeth. While there is the aesthetic value of teeth cleaning, there are also a multitude of health benefits as well. Having your teeth cleaned can help prevent gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Gum disease has also been linked to cardiovascular disease. Getting your teeth cleaned regularly can reduce the chances of having a stroke or a heart attack. We specialize in cosmetic dentistry, so if you want more than just a teeth cleaning, you can take advantage of our teeth whitening promotion. Get a whitening service for $250. Or, if you need a little more than that, you can try Invisalign for $500.

If you are interested in hearing more about our services, promotions, or in-house financing plans, then call and speak to one of our staff members today. At Mayfair Family Dentistry we are interested in providing quality service to your whole family—children, teens, adults, and elderly patients are all welcome.

Teeth Whitening

At Mayfair Family Dentistry, located on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, your smile is important to us. We understand that it can be difficult to feel confident when you have a smile that you aren’t comfortable with. If you are suffering from discolored or stained teeth, you may want to consider getting your teeth whitened. If you are interested in getting your teeth whitened, ask us about our whitening special for only $250!

After getting your teeth whitened, you may be wondering what you can do to preserve the initial results. The best thing that you can do is to maintain a regular teeth cleaning routine. You should brush your teeth at least twice daily, but for the best results, you should brush your teeth after meals as well. You should also avoid drinking coffee, tea, and red wines if you are concerned about your teeth becoming stained again. Or, you should at least brush your teeth afterward. Smoking can also cause yellowing of the teeth, and you should consider trying to cut back if you are concerned about your teeth becoming discolored.

Root Canals

 

If you are noticing severe tooth pain when chewing or biting, darkening of your tooth, gum swelling and tenderness, and/or prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, then you may be in need of root canal treatment. At Mayfair Family Dentistry, we specialize in endodontics and would be more than happy to assist you with any root canal concerns.

When the pulp chamber of a tooth has become infected, damaged or has begun to decay, root canal treatment may become necessary. Root canal treatment is a procedure that is performed to help relieve pain within the chamber of a tooth. You will most likely have your procedure done by an endodontist, who is a dentist specializing in treatments that involve the careful removal of the pulp inside the tooth. The endodontist will also clean, disinfect, and shape the tooth where the pulp once was. Finally, the procedure is finished by applying a filling to seal the space. A normal root canal treatment uses anesthetic and is normally no more painful than a typical filling.

Unfortunately, in some cases, even after the diseased pulp has been removed, an apicoectomy may be needed if the infection recurs or won’t completely dissipate. Sometimes, after a root canal treatment has been performed, small pieces of infected debris remain. If this happens, a surgical procedure called an apicoectomy will take place to remove the very tips of the tooth’s roots. In most cases, however, a traditional root canal treatment is sufficient in treating the infection.

If you have any questions or concerns about needing a root canal treatment, contact us today at Mayfair Family Dentistry, located on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA.
