Preventative dental care is a part of general dentistry. At routine dental appointments, we provide dental cleanings, digital x-rays, and dental exams to inspect and maintain the smile. Our dentists thoroughly examine the teeth and gums and take note of any emerging dental issues. Additionally, at these routine visits, we use diagnostic technology to pinpoint the causes of our patient’s symptoms. Then, we can recommend the right dental solution to fit their needs. General dental care prevents future oral health problems and maintains the function and aesthetics of the teeth and gums.

Our general dental solutions prevent further oral health problems and maintain the current smile:
If you or your child play contact sports, you need a custom sports mouthguard. Also, compared to store-bought mouthguards, professionally-made mouthguards fully conform to teeth. They also do not fall out of the mouth during games. Sports mouthguards protect teeth and braces from damage or loss.
Contact our dental office if you have a dental emergency. Emergency dentistry services can help existing patients who require urgent dental care. Some common dental emergencies that we treat include toothaches, broken dental restorations, and lost permanent teeth.
We provide family dentistry services to children and adults in Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. For our younger patients, we offer sealants and fluoride treatment. As patients age, we can provide them with cosmetic and restorative services to maintain their smiles.
Laser dentistry is a treatment method that painlessly cuts and contours the soft tissues of the mouth. We use LANAP®, a dental laser that removes infected gum tissue from the mouth. With dental lasers, we can comfortably treat patients with gum disease.
If you have infected or impacted teeth, we will recommend a tooth extraction. Patients will often need a dental extraction to improve the health of their smiles. We use local anesthetic and dental sedation to make sure that patients do not feel any pain or discomfort during the tooth extraction procedure.
General Dentistry FAQs
Discover more about general dental care with answers to these common patient questions:
What happens during the root canal procedure?
Root canal procedures preserve the natural tooth. Once harmful bacteria reach the inside of a tooth, it affects the dental pulp. The pulp is made up of blood vessels and tissues. During the root canal procedure, we use air abrasion instead of a dental drill to comfortably remove infected dental pulp. Finally, we seal the tooth with a dental filling.
A white filling is an alternative to metal fillings and is made of composite material. White fillings protect the tooth and blend in with the natural smile. Additionally, we may also recommend a dental crown if patients have particularly worn or weakened teeth.
Is dental sedation safe?
Yes, dental sedation is a safe way to ensure that patients receive pain-free, comfortable care. We monitor our patients throughout their treatment to make sure that they are safe and comfortable under sedation.
