What is a general dentist?

A general dentist in Wilmington, DE, is a practitioner who offers general and preventive dentistry.

Preventive dentistry means regular checkups, teeth cleanings, periodic x-rays, and oral cancer screenings. Prevention is typically twice-yearly and helps you avoid costly and time-consuming dental care treatments in the future. General dentistry is dental maintenance and deals with the following:

  • Tooth-colored fillings to treat tooth decay
  • Root canal therapy to treat root infections
  • Tooth replacement to restore missing teeth
  • Periodontal treatment to restore gum health
  • Emergency dentistry to treat pain and other issues

Our dental office treats patients of all ages, including children. And we also offer advanced therapies and cosmetic options like:

  • Dental veneers for a Hollywood smile
  • Professional teeth whitening to brighten teeth
  • Dental bonding to affordably conceal flawed teeth
  • Dental crowns to restore and enhance teeth
  • Sleep apnea therapy to provide a safe and restful sleep
  • TMJ treatment to save your smile and restore your well-being
  • Orthodontics, including clear aligners and Six Month Smiles
