Preventive Care

At LRK Dental, PA, we treat the families of our community just like we would want our own families to be treated – with respect and compassion. That is why we focus on prevention in our Seaford, Delaware, dental office. If we can prevent dental conditions before they start, you could avoid many common dental problems that can cause inconvenience and discomfort.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

When we welcome you to our office, you will receive a comprehensive dental exam that will give you an overall picture of your oral health. When we share your results with you, we will provide you with all of your options and assist you in making a decision that makes sense for you and your lifestyle.

We know that not every patient has the same goal when it comes to their dentistry, so listening will be a big part of your experience. When we know what you want for yourself, we can customize your treatment to meet your unique expectations.

We will start by examining your teeth, gums, and bite. Diagnostic images, such as dental x-rays, provide us with the information we need to make a good recommendation to protect your smile.

Our dentists are gentle and skilled, so you can feel confident about your care from the moment you walk in the door.

Professional Dental Cleanings

Nothing feels quite as good as a fresh, clean smile. Even if you have exceptional home care habits, it is impossible for you to reach the areas in between your teeth and below your gum line with brushing and flossing alone. Our hygienists will provide you with a gentle yet thorough cleaning to supplement your home care. 

If you suffer from periodontal disease, we will design a treatment plan that meets your current needs. Healthy gums can protect your overall health! Researchers have linked gum disease with other serious medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

Regular dental cleanings can keep you looking and feeling your best!

Protective Mouthguards and Nightguards

If you play sports or have a clenching and grinding habit known as bruxism, we can create a custom mouthguard or nightguard to prevent you from damaging your teeth. Cracked teeth are no fun but preventing them is easy with the proper oral appliance and regular dental check-ups. Custom mouthguards and nightguards are more comfortable, fit better, and do an exceptional job of preventing trauma from a stray fly-ball or from nocturnal teeth grinding.
