General dental care is preventative in nature. Anything from routine dental appointments to sports mouthguards can help prevent the development of future oral health problems. For example, our pediatric dental care for our younger patients helps set them up for healthy future smiles. We provide comprehensive general and routine dental services for all ages in Bensalem, PA. General dentistry is the foundation of a healthy smile and it supports your long term oral health and wellness.
At Perfect Smiles, we want all of our patients to be aware of their current oral health condition, risk factors for disease, and any changes in the appearance or function of their teeth and gums. Our general dental services help keep patients on track to maintain beautiful and healthy smiles.

Do you or your child play contact sports? You need a sports mouthguard. Our professionally made sports mouthguards are customized to each patient for a proper fit. When compared to store-bought mouthguards, our customized mouthguards are comfortable and do not fall out during games.
Call our office in the event of a dental emergency. We can treat patients with toothaches, lost permanent teeth, broken dental restorations, and more. However, if you have had an accident and require medical care, receive treatment in a hospital first. We can provide you with dental care after you are treated for physical injuries.
As a family dental office, we offer dental care to patients of all ages. Our dentists work with parents and their children to ensure that they are receiving the best treatments for their stage in life. Perfect Smiles offers pediatric to geriatric care and serves all of the patients in between.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common type of sleep disorder that affects many Americans. It is marked by several symptoms, including snoring, mood swings, insomnia, and chronic migraines. We offer oral appliances as an alternative to CPAP machines for a more comfortable and quieter way to treat sleep apnea.
Many patients may think that dental extractions are painful. However, tooth extraction treatment actually removes pain caused by impacted or infected teeth. We use local anesthesia and may offer sedation for more complex procedures. Our dental team makes sure that patients feel comfortable during their treatments and their healing process.
General Dentistry FAQs
If you have any remaining questions about our general dental treatments, read answers to common questions many of our patients have here:
Do I have sleep apnea if I snore?
Sometimes, snoring is an isolated problem. Although snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea, it is not an immediate indicator of a sleep disorder. However, if you experience any other signs of sleep apnea, including insomnia and mood swings, please contact our office.
How often do I need to replace my sports mouthguard?
We will often recommend that patients replace their mouthguard every sports season. If there are any changes in the fit of the mouthguard, or if patients receive braces, they will need a new sports mouthguard. Our team makes sure that mouthguards are durable and fit comfortably against the teeth.
Does your office provide treatment for seniors?
Yes, we offer restorative, general, and cosmetic options for our older patients. Aging can lead to changes in the smile, whether it’s tooth wear, discoloration, and even loss. Common treatments that we offer for seniors include dental implants, dentures, dental bridges, porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and teeth whitening treatment. Our office can help patients improve the look, feel, and health of their aging smiles.
