Routine Dental Care For Patients in Rehoboth Beach
At your first dental visit, we screen for oral cancer, gum disease, and other systemic problems. We will take note of any changes in your oral health. To screen for gum disease, we measure the gum tissue to determine if there are deep gum pockets. Gum pockets above 4 mm put patients at risk of a gum infection. Additionally, our team will look for signs of bleeding, swollen, or red gums. Signs of oral cancer that we look for include white or red patches in the mouth or chronic mouth sores.
Our dental hygienists also provide routine cleanings to remove plaque from the gum line. Scaling and root planing are treatments used in tandem to deeply clean between the teeth and underneath the gum tissues. During these treatments, our hygienists remove plaque, or bacteria buildup, which contributes to tooth decay and gum disease.

High-Quality Dental Services
Learn about the unique, modern dental treatments that we offer to protect the smile and even reverse harmful symptoms:
The Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is an alternative to traditional oral surgery. Using handheld dental lasers, we can easily cut and contour the gum tissue. Dental lasers are safe to use and provide quick and comfortable treatment to patients with infected gums, tongue-tie, lip-tie, or a gummy smile.
We make custom sports mouthguards for kids and adults who play sports. Sports mouthguards protect the teeth and braces from damage during contact sports. Some contact sports can include football, hockey, lacrosse. It is important to wear a sports mouthguard as a preventative measure against tooth chips, cracks, fractures, and even loss.
A dental implant is a titanium post that we insert underneath the gum tissue. The implant fuses with the jaw bone tissue to create a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, and dentures. As one of the most versatile dental restorations, dental implants offer a durable and long-lasting treatment to patients with missing teeth.
