Pediatric Dentistry in Atlanta, GA

At our practice, we enjoy caring for patients of all ages, including children. We are pleased to provide pediatric dentistry to help you keep your child’s smile in good health. We encourage you to bring your child to our office every six months for a regular dental exam and cleaning. During this visit, our friendly dentist and team will gently clean your child’s teeth and check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay.

Why Bring Your Child to the Dentist

Each member of our team is caring and gentle, and we practice making children feel comfortable. We understand that it is important to build a positive, trusting relationship between your child and all of their doctors at a young age, and we are dedicated to ensuring that your child feels comfortable and safe at our office. If you have any questions about your child’s dental health or oral development, we welcome you to ask us during the visit or by calling our office.

In addition to bringing your child to our office for regular checkups, it is important that you help your child establish good oral hygiene habits at home. Teach your child to brush and floss their teeth every day and help them maintain a balanced, healthy diet. We invite you to call or visit our office today to learn more about pediatric dentistry and how we can care for your family.

Caring for Aging Teeth

Along with treating baby teeth, our staff specializes in the issues that come with adulthood and aging. As we age, our teeth undergo natural changes that require special care and attention in order to have good oral health. Caring for aging teeth involves a combination of good daily oral health practices, regular dental check-ups, and a healthy lifestyle. Just because you make it out of childhood with good teeth doesn’t mean that it will stay that way. You have to maintain good oral health practices. 

One of the most efficient ways to keep your mouth healthy is to maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine. This means that you should brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. This helps to remove plaque buildup and prevent decay. Furthermore, daily flossing is equally important because it removes food particles and plaque from between your teeth. 

When we age, we become more susceptible to conditions such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancers. As a result, regular dental check-ups are essential to detect and address dental issues early. During your appointments, we can monitor the health of your teeth and gums as well as provide treatment as needed.
