At Southside Medical Center, we are proud to offer Atlanta dentistry services. We focus on premier, cutting-edge dental care for patients of all ages, beginning at age three and on through adulthood. While we provide numerous services directly on site, we can also provide referrals for our patients who need additional services that we do not offer.
Initial dental care should begin around the age of three, when toddlers can begin to sit well in the dental chair and can take part in their own care. Before this point, we recommend that parents take good care of their children’s teeth with regular brushing. At this appointment, though, children will get their first dental experience. They will be able to meet the dental professional and get comfortable enough to look forward to future care rather than fear it.
Within the next two to three years, we recommend that children continue to come to us twice per year. We will begin with cleanings, polishing, fluoride treatments and X-rays. This will help us reduce the risk of dental problems over the years. We may also need to provide sealants to keep the molars healthy and cavity-free.
During the elementary years and the teenage years, it is also important to keep up biannual checkups at our Atlanta dentistry practice because these years place the teeth at high risk of cavities. Checkups with our trustworthy team can help children learn how to take care of their teeth with daily flossing and brushing. We can also talk to children about foods that are bad for their teeth.
Our amazing dental care can transition seamlessly into adulthood. Regular checkups are still important, but we also provide more than just preventative care at our Atlanta dentistry practice. When you want a dentist that you can trust for every part of your family’s oral care, choose Southside Medical Center.
We know that your time is important to you, and we respect your own personal needs. If you have recently moved to the area or are searching for a new Atlanta dentistry practice, we encourage you to turn to Southside Medical Center for a wonderful family dental experience.
