Whole Health Education

As your Abington dental team, our primary concern is to care for the health of your teeth and gums. Did you know seeing your dentist could help with your overall health too? Dr. Patel and our team take extra time to educate you on the connection between oral health and overall wellbeing.

During your regular six-month examinations, Dr. Patel checks for any signs of periodontal disease, which can be associated with overall health issues (heart disease, diabetes, etc). She also screens for oral cancer and provides helpful advice on how to avoid these conditions. Our entire team takes pride in preventive treatment, so your family enjoys healthy smiles and overall health.

Preventive Care

Preventing problems before they occur is our main objective as your chosen dental practice. This starts with regular six-month cleanings that allow our team to evaluate your at-home hygiene routine. During these cleanings, your skilled dental hygienist can provide top tips on how to keep your smile whiter, brighter, and healthier.

These cleanings also give us the opportunity to catch any conditions or problems early, when treatment can be the least invasive and most effective. Although regular brushing and flossing are essential, sometimes there are areas that only a professional cleaning can get to. Your hygienist is your key to preventing cavities, tooth decay, and more severe dental issues.

Deep Cleanings

Occasionally the build-up of plaque and tartar can lead to your gums becoming irritated or infected. This can lead to pain, sensitivity, or even bleeding, which are early symptoms of periodontal or gum disease. We can help prevent this from becoming a serious issue through deep dental cleanings. They will also provide advice on how to improve your brushing and flossing techniques to prevent the build-up of bad bacteria.

During your cleaning, our team will scale and polish your teeth. This means we use non-invasive instruments to remove the plaque or tartar build-up and then shine your teeth so they look beautifully clean!

Metal-free Fillings

Although silver fillings can provide a reasonable restoration, there are a number of drawbacks. For example, they contain mercury (not biocompatible) and do not bond to your existing teeth. They also don’t blend in with your smile, which is the primary reason the majority of people are turning to natural-looking composite fillings. These restorations contain no metal or mercury and have been designed to match the color of your smile.

Dr. Patel offers state-of-the-art restorations that are natural-looking, durable, and can actually strengthen your teeth. With less chance of decay, they also bond very tightly with the healthy part of your teeth and are easy to place.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is caused by the build-up of plaque and tartar on your tooth. As these accumulate, bad bacteria gathers and affects the soft tissue around the gums. The results are common symptoms such as:

  • Red, swollen gums
  • Bleeding
  • Sensitivity

Dr. Patel is able to diagnose and treat periodontal disease before it becomes severe. If left untreated then the bacteria destroys the gums and supporting bone, which can result in tooth loss.

Using modern soft tissue lasers, Dr. Mona Patel can treat patients without the need for surgery. The laser painlessly removes the bacteria and can immediately relieve gum sensitivity and inflammation. Through proper brushing and flossing after the laser treatment, your gums can regain their health and function!
