New Patient Dental Cleanings & Exams
Dental exams and cleanings, as part of our general dentistry services, are our chance to make sure that your teeth are in good working order. During your first visit, you will tour the office and then meet with the hygienist to clean your teeth. This visit may include a fluoride treatment or varnish. You will have X-rays taken of your teeth. We also have options available to see inside your teeth without needing X-rays (CariVu to look inside your teeth, SOPROCARE fluorescence to detect decay in your mouth, and DIAGNOdent cavity detection system). Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey will go over the condition of your teeth and discuss any issues you may be developing. Catching your problems early will make them much easier to treat. This is especially true in terms of the oral cancer screening you will receive during your exam and cleanings.
What causes bad breath?
There are many things that can contribute to bad breath (halitosis). Tweaking your dental hygiene, adjusting your diet, or eliminating a bad habit (tobacco use) are all ways to improve your breath condition. Come see us for a general dentistry check at Hellertown Dental Group to find out how we can help. If your condition is serious, we will refer you to one of our trusted specialists to help you with your breath problem.

We’re here to help when you’re in pain and experiencing a dental emergency.
Regular visits to the dentist are hard enough for a lot of people and dental emergencies are even harder. We are here to get you the care you need fast, ensuring your comfort, recovery, and restoration of your teeth. All dental emergencies are different but our wide range of advanced treatment techniques and technology will have you smiling again soon!
Night & Sports Guards
Grinding or clenching your teeth is called bruxism, and it can contribute to the development of a TMJ disorder. A mouthguard from our top-notch Hellertown, PA dentist can help save your teeth and your jaw from the effects of chronic bruxism.
One of the symptoms of a TMJ disorder, or TMD, is migraines or headaches. Come see us at Hellertown Dental Group to find out what can be done to solve your migraine problems. Often, we recommend an oral device to reposition your jaw, taking pressure off it and therefore eliminating the jaw pain that can lead to headaches.
Gum Disease Treatment (Periodontics)
Sore gums may be a sign of the beginning stages of gum disease. Gum disease can destroy your smile and cause other health problems if left untreated. Get yours taken care of immediately.
Gum recession can leave your smile looking like you are all teeth. A good balance of gum and teeth is ideal when you flash your smile. Gum disease is a major cause of a lot of gum recession issues. If that’s what caused your receding gums, then scaling and root planing may be good ways to stimulate new gum growth in the affected areas. Top-notch Hellertown,PA dentist Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey can also use tissue and gum grafting to correct your gum recession issue and help even out your smile.
