Here at Glenside Dental, we place an emphasis on preventive care to help ensure our patients' ongoing oral health. We encourage patients to come in for a checkup with us twice a year, where we provide a comprehensive oral exam and a professional-grade cleaning. Periodic comprehensive exams allow us to detect oral health problems in their earliest stages, with the assistance of our advanced digital radiography system, and treat them before they become more complex and potentially costly issues down the line. With regular dental cleanings, the accumulated plaque and debris that your toothbrush has not reached can be effectively removed to help prevent to onset of gum disease and other oral health issues. With every checkup visit, our patients are provided with instructions and guidance in the best at-home oral hygiene regimens to maintain optimal oral health. We also offer our pediatric patients fluoride treatment and sealants to protect their new teeth from decay.

At our state-of- the-art dental practice, we offer a complete menu of the latest and most effective restorative and cosmetic treatments. Patients who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth will find a variety of options for replacement, including dental bridges, partial or full dentures and dental implants. Dental implants represent the most advanced method of replicating the complete form and function of a natural tooth.

If you simply wish to brighten their smile, we provide a professional-grade take-home kit, which is able to whiten teeth by several shades with minimal effort.
