Your Family Dentist
Your dental needs change as you get older, and we are here to provide top-quality dentistry regardless of your age.
Your child's first appointment is especially important, and our highly trained staff assures that the experience is both fun and educational for your son or daughter. We encourage our patients to visit our office as soon as your baby's teeth begin to erupt. In this way, the first dental experience is positive and fun!
During the first visit, we will take a health history and give an oral exam to check for growth and development and general oral hygiene. Dr. Mark Gladnick or Dr. Jason Justison will be able to tell if your baby is at risk for developing tooth decay, will discuss pacifier use and thumb-sucking issues, and will talk about common dental injuries and what to do if one occurs.
Baby teeth typically erupt around six months of age and may cause a little soreness or tenderness. You can help by rubbing your child's gums with wet gauze, a soft toothbrush made for babies, or, my personal favorite, a soft brush fitted on a finger sleeve that you put on your own finger and brush back and forth.
There are also many varieties of teethers that can be chilled in the freezer to help ease sore gums. A word of caution about gels or creams containing benzocaine: These should never be used on babies younger than two since benzocaine, which is used as a local anesthetic, has been known to cause serious reactions in some children. Taking care of baby teeth is essential to assuring the proper space maintenance for adult teeth and to help in establishing proper speech patterns.
For adults, we provide the preventive care you need to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime.
The Dental Treatments Your Family Needs
Come to our Wilmington, DE dental office for all the dental treatments your family needs—all in the same place.
Is there something you’d like to change about your smile? With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Gladnick and Dr. Justison can transform your smile, fixing all of its esthetic flaws. Some of the services we offer include tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic bonding, veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants.
Crowns and Bridges
Are damaged or missing teeth impacting your ability to chew properly? Teeth that are too compromised to be repaired can benefit from a dental crown, which will strengthen the tooth and restore your ability to chew. When teeth are missing, the space needs to be filled with a dental prosthetic, and dental bridges at our Wilmington, DE dental office provide an effective solution.
It’s crucial to replace missing teeth—even those in the back of the mouth that might not be visible—because not doing so can lead to even more missing teeth. Dentists agree that dental implants are the most natural tooth replacement you can get because implants look and work very much like natural teeth. Our Wilmington, DE patients who have dental implants concur!
Straight smiles look better—and they are also easier to keep healthy. Brushing and flossing crooked teeth can be more challenging because of the nooks and crannies that are formed with misaligned teeth. We offer traditional braces as well as Invisalign clear braces at our Wilmington, DE dental office.
Good oral health habits start at a young age, and we generally recommend that pediatric dental visits begin at our Wilmington, DE dental office when your child is around the age of one. Our experienced team will ensure your child has a pleasant experience while they are here.
Many people have gum disease, but they don’t know they do so they aren’t getting treatment. By going to your Wilmington, DE dentist every six months, we can check your gum health and provide treatment if periodontal disease is present.
Many people fear this common dental procedure because they believe it is painful. In reality, getting a root canal is no worse than getting a filling—and it can save your tooth from needing extraction.
Is snoring keeping your sleep partner awake night after night? Do you wake up feeling exhausted—even when you think you’ve had a full night of sleep? You might have sleep apnea, and at our Wilmington, DE dental office, we can offer some solutions to this serious disorder.
TMJ disorders can manifest in many different ways, including headaches, facial pain, sore jaw muscles, insomnia, and loose or damaged teeth. Our Wilmington, DE top dentists can diagnose the reason behind these issues. Answers include such options as a nightguard or reshaping the high spots that are present on one or more teeth.
This versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure can cover up a multitude of aesthetic issues with your smile, including chipped or cracked teeth, discolored or stained teeth, misaligned teeth, and more. In just a couple of visits to our Wilmington, DE dental office, veneers can transform the look of your smile.
Dr. Gladnick and Dr. Justison believe that nutrition can have a significant impact on your oral health in addition to your overall wellbeing, so they are pleased to offer Wilmington, DE patients nutrition counseling as part of their preventive dental care. Although most people know that sugary drinks and snacks can wreak havoc on your teeth, they might be surprised to learn that starches can be just as detrimental to tooth health. That’s right: eating crackers, bread, and pasta can also cause cavity-causing acids to form in your mouth.
