For Our Patient's Comfort...

We believe that making patients as comfortable as possible at Christiana Dental Center, is an essential part of good dentistry. We take pride in being caring, understanding, and helpful. We offer the following services at our ultra-modern office:

Never Fear the Dentist Again

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide: To help our patients relax during their dental treatments, Christiana Dental Center provides Nitrous Oxide, to assist those who may have feared the dentist in the past. Nitrous Oxide is a gas that's combined with Oxygen to produce a calming effect, and a sense of well being when inhaled. Most patients have a clear head within minutes, allowing them to function normally with no lingering effects. Nitrous Oxide is also known as laughing gas.

Conscious Sedation - For Patients Who Require a Profound Level of Relaxation
Dental anxiety can often cause patients to put off going to the dentist, but that's no longer necessary. As gentle as Dr. Rectenwald is, just the thought of a needle is too scary for some patients. So we offer oral sedation. We'll give you a prescription for the pills you need to take one hour before your visit. This will relax you enough to allow us to provide all your treatments in comfort. It's also beneficial if you need a lot of work done and don't want to make multiple visits.

Better Treatment for Gum Disease

No Cut

Recent studies have made it clear that gum disease is not only an oral issue. It's been discovered to affect a lot more than just gums. In a healthy mouth, bacteria are kept separate from the rest of your body. But if you have periodontitis, a serious gum infection, it can open up a door to your bloodstream, putting you at increased risk for heart disease, stroke, bacterial endocarditis, and even premature birth in pregnancy. It's very important to prevent or immediately treat such a condition before it affects the rest of your body.

New laser technology called Laser Periodontal Therapy™ allows us to treat gum disease non-surgically, with little to no pain, using the PerioLase™. This is the only FDA-approved laser treatment for periodontitis, and it can reverse bone lost through years of gum disease. Because there's no traditional cutting or stitching, there is also very little pain, and healing and recovery time are much faster!
