General Dentistry Services

We are a local dental practice that offers many general dental services. Our Philadelphia dentist office offers several dental treatments to meet your needs including dental fillings, emergency care, dental exams and second opinions, advanced pain-free procedures, and more. The following are just some of the services that Dr. Shulman can provide to his patients.

Dental Fillings

A dental filling is a safe and natural way to fix tooth decay or tooth damage in just one visit to our dental office. Dental fillings can restore your smile and help prevent tooth loss and other dental problems. Our modern white dental fillings protect your teeth while blending in with the natural color of your teeth for a long-lasting, natural look.

Dr. Shulman can easily replace old metal fillings with white fillings. If your metal fillings are broke or you simply want to replace them, we can help. To learn more about our white composite fillings, see Dental fillings.

Emergency Dentistry

Did one of your teeth get knocked out? Are you feeling severe tooth pain that just won’t go away? Contact our dentist office immediately after dental trauma or an accident and we will do our best to see you the same day. If you’re experiencing severe pain and non-stop bleeding, contact your doctor or go to the emergency room. If you have a knocked-out or fractured tooth, place it in a sealed container with milk or your own saliva and bring it to our office. To learn more about how Dr. Shulman can help you through an emergency, see Emergency dentistry.

Family Dentistry

Dr. Shulman offers professional dental care to patients of all ages. Children that are able to receive dental care alongside their parent or caregiver may have less dental anxiety. Our team enjoys helping young patients learn how to maintain clean and healthy smiles. We also provide dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and general check-ups. To learn more about our family dental care services, see Family dentistry.

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is a form of dental surgery that makes use of lasers instead of traditional dental tools. We can use dental lasers in a variety of different procedures including teeth whitening, cavity and enamel preparation, periodontal treatment, and hard and soft tissue sculpting. The process uses focused light beams which can alter and remove tissue.

Laser dentistry is generally safe for all ages. Benefits of laser dentistry include less bleeding and less trauma to the surrounding tissue. Because dental lasers are gentle and painless, laser dentistry can also be a great option for those who may face dental fear or anxiety. To learn more about our laser dental treatments, see Laser dentistry.


Prevent tooth damage by wearing custom sports mouthguards during contact-sports! Our dentist can make you a custom-fit mouthguard that will fit your teeth better than one-size-fits-all store-bought variations. This snug fit will keep the mouthguard more secure and help protect your teeth and gums from impact. We may also recommend custom-fitted mouthguards for people with special needs such as an impaired gag reflex or joint pain. To learn more about our mouthguard services, see Mouthguard.

Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure that Dr. Shulman provides to save an infected or badly decayed natural tooth from extraction. Teeth with severe damage and infection or decay will most likely need the deep cleaning that a root canal provides. During this procedure, the dentist removes the nerve, cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth, and then packs it with an appropriate material and seals it.

Many people may think that a root canal is painful, but the root canal process is no more painful than getting a dental filling. To learn how we can restore normal function to your affected tooth and relieve any pain or discomfort that you have, see Root canal.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can help make oral health care more manageable and reduce stress related to visiting the dentist. This option is great for those that suffer from fear of the dentist, dental tools, or general anxiety. Our dental sedation options can make your trips to the dental office much more pleasant.

Dr. Drew Shulman can offer our patients Oral-conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. Oral-conscious sedation is a type of sedation that uses oral medication to help our patients relax. Nitrous oxide, on the other hand, is a type of inhaled sedation that is thought of as “laughing gas”.To learn about the sedation options that we can provide you, see Sedation dentistry.

Tooth Extraction

When every attempt made to preserve a tooth fails, a tooth extraction may be necessary. Our dentist will do his best to save your tooth before extracting it. We also provide wisdom teeth removal for patients who are having issues with their third set of molars.

You may need a tooth extraction procedure if you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth that cannot be saved with a root canal. You may also need a tooth extraction if a tooth is preventing your other teeth from coming in correctly or are causing severely crooked teeth. To learn more about our tooth removal services, see Tooth extraction.
