Preventative Care

Preventative dental care can help keep your teeth, gums, and bite healthy over the long-term. Here at Delaware Smile Center, we are committed to providing thorough, comprehensive services that allow us to identify, treat, and prevent dental concerns before they have the chance to cause problems. Some of our preventative care options include both routine and deep dental cleanings, digital x-rays, personalized hygiene consultations, and our complete dental exam. The complete dental exam is a comprehensive assessment of your oral health, and it includes digital x-rays, an oral cancer screening, an occlusal exam, and a variety of other services. Ultimately, most dental problems are easier to treat when discovered early, and high-quality preventative care can help save you time, money, discomfort, and stress down the road.

Periodontal Care

Healthy gums are an integral part of a healthy smile, and it is important to address any periodontal concerns you have as soon as you notice them. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, you develop chronic bad breath, or you see your gums beginning to pull away from the teeth, we recommend contacting your dentist immediately. We offer scaling and root planing treatments that can help clear out any plaque and bacteria that have built up, restoring the health of your gums. For patients at a more advanced stage of periodontal disease who have receding gum tissue, we also offer gum grafting treatments that can restore the gingival tissues and prevent tooth loss.

Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety and fear are relatively common conditions, but they prove debilitating when they prevent people from pursuing dental treatment until it becomes unavoidable. The dentists here at Delaware Smile Center are sympathetic to these concerns, which is why we are one of a select few dental offices in Delaware that offers IV sedation. This innovative treatment allows us to provide a more comfortable, relaxing, and stress-free experience for those who might otherwise avoid the dentist entirely.

Emergencies & Root Canals

Dental emergencies can happen at any time and in any place, oftentimes causing significant physical and emotional distress. Quick, efficient treatment is vital to helping you feel more comfortable and, in some cases, to protecting your oral health. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • A tooth or teeth that have been knocked out
  • A filling, crown, or other restoration that has fallen out
  • Toothache
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as a cut lip or gum

Whatever type of dental emergency you may be experiencing, please call us at 302-285-7645 and a member of our staff will either schedule you a same-day appointment or direct you to the nearest alternative.

The treatment for dental emergencies varies based on the precise factors of each case. Teeth that have been knocked out by trauma can sometimes be reattached if the lost tooth is properly handled and treatment is sought in a timely fashion. In some cases, particularly those where severe tooth pain occurs, an emergency root canal may be the optimal treatment option. Many people discover that their severe toothaches are actually caused by underlying tooth decay, which, when left unchecked, can eat away at the internal tooth structures. Once the decay reaches the sensitive tooth roots, it can lead to pain, swelling, and the formation of abscesses—potentially painful pockets of pus that develop around infected and decayed teeth. An emergency root canal can remove the infection while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible, helping to relieve pain and protect the health of your mouth.
