Our General Dentistry in Newark, DE

Our general dentistry picks up where our preventive services leave off. It is through general dentistry that your dentist reverses oral health conditions and restores your oral health. And she does this in a relaxing environment.

Examples of our general dentistry services include:

  • Preventive dentistry
  • Dental fillings
  • Extractions
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Tooth replacement

For dental fillings and restorations, we rely on tooth-colored fillings in Newark, DE. This means your dentistry is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With our restorative methods, you do not have to worry about metal or silver detracting from your smile.

Sometimes a tooth fractures below the gumline or deep decay means that it is not salvageable. Your gentle family dentist in Newark provides easy extractions to help ease your pain and preserve your oral health. We also offer a variety of tooth replacement options to restore your smile.

Periodontal treatment helps improve your oral health if you have been diagnosed with gum disease or gingivitis. Our therapies include specialized treatments and cleaning above and below the gumline. At Erin M. Macko, DDS, we understand that gum disease can be a little scary, but we are with you every step of the way!

Tooth replacement when you have a missing tooth or teeth plays a critical role in your oral health. Of course, missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious when laughing with friends and family, but missing teeth can also cause your remaining teeth to slide toward these gaps. When this happens, your bite is not what it should be, which can lead to worn teeth and even future tooth loss.

We also work with other dental professionals who share our patient-centered focus, professionals who specialize in root canal therapy and complex wisdom tooth extractions. With our team and pool professionals, an excellent outcome is always a top priority.  

Lowering Your Risks for Dental Health Conditions

Studies have found that visiting your dentist twice-yearly for dental checkups and teeth cleanings significantly lower your risks for cavities, infections, and periodontal disease.

During a routine exam, Dr. Macko can find emerging dental health issues before they become serious problems. Additionally, teeth cleanings rid your teeth and gums of the debris and bacteria that lead to specific dental health conditions like cavities.

We also offer tips and nutrition counseling to help you utilize the best oral care routine at home coupled with a tooth-friendly diet.
