Taking care of your oral health helps protect your smile and allows you to feel more confident. Our team at Atglen Family Dentistry provides compassionate and skilled options for general dentistry in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

We Handle Your Dental Cleaning Needs

Protecting your teeth often starts with a dental cleaning. We can set up a cleaning appointment for you when you reach out to our dental practice. During a basic cleaning, a dental hygienist:

  • Brushes your teeth
  • Flosses between teeth 
  • Removes plaque buildup

After the cleaning process, Dr. Onyinye C Myers comes in to perform a check-up, reviewing your teeth and any x-rays that show your oral health. We recommend setting up an appointment for cleaning every six months for best results. 

Dental Sealants and Pediatric Dentistry

As a family dental practice, we provide dental services for all members of your family, including your children. We adjust our treatments for pediatric dental care, taking steps to ensure your child feels comfortable throughout all procedures.

We handle cleaning, x-rays, and fluoride treatments for your children. Our office also offers dental sealants, which cover the surface of the molars in the back of the jaw, providing an extra layer of protection from bacteria in the mouth.

We can apply sealants once your child’s molars grow in to give them immediate protection. Contact us for all your general dentistry in Lancaster County needs. 

Let Us Take Care of Periodontal Therapy

Periodontitis – or gum disease – represents a significant concern for many people in and around Lancaster County. We provide you with solutions to this condition and take steps to identify the issue as early as possible to begin treatment. 

You can contact us regarding periodontal therapy if you notice that you have:

  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that are purplish or bright red
  • Bleeding when you touch your gums
  • Loosened teeth
  • Pain when you chew 
  • Receding gums 

These are only examples of the symptoms associated with periodontitis. We use state-of-the-art treatments to handle all your dental needs. 

Ask About Dental Bonding, Crowns, and Bridges

We handle all your reconstructive dentistry needs in Lancaster County. Dental bonding allows us to apply a special composite resin to damaged teeth, restoring your smile and providing protection to your teeth. 

We can also answer your questions about crowns. Crowns cap off damaged teeth, especially after you get a root canal. These composite caps protect the inside of a damaged tooth from experiencing further harm.

Finally, we offer bridges. Bridges replace one or more missing teeth by connecting to undamaged teeth on either side of the gap. We focus on continuing education about all new dental procedures to understand all your oral health options. 

Trust Us for Sedation Dentistry (Nitrous Oxide)

We understand that some patients feel nervous about dental procedures. As a result, many patients consider sedation dentistry (nitrous oxide therapy) to avoid the anxiety of filling a cavity or having a tooth pulled. 

We take sedation dentistry seriously and put your health first if you request nitrous oxide during a procedure. We can discuss all your options so you understand how the process works before we begin your treatment. 

Tooth Extractions and Dental Replacement Options

When possible, our team focuses on repairing damaged teeth. For example, we may fill cavities or apply inlays on damaged teeth. However, the damage to your teeth may require more serious dental procedures in some cases.

You can contact us for tooth extractions. We focus on your comfort when removing teeth, using medications to numb the area before we begin. We may discuss your other options before tooth extraction to help you stay informed.

Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

We also handle cosmetic dentistry procedures, including teeth whitening. Brightening your smile can help you feel more confident and reduce the effects of aging. Our whitening procedures may remove stains caused by:

  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Age

We can discuss these procedures when you contact us. We also offer information about over-the-counter whitening products.
