Family Dentistry Leads To Healthy Smiles

Posted on May 26th, 2019

It’s almost officially summer. School is out. You may have a family vacation planned.

This also is a great opportunity to take advantage of our family dentistry in Marietta, GA. Today, we want to discuss some great reasons for you and your loved ones to visit Atlanta West Dentistry during the next few months.

We want to help you keep your healthy smiles all summer. Just call (770) 941-6979 to schedule an appointment soon.

Enjoy Your Time

We get it. Going to the dentist probably doesn’t sound like the highlight of your family’s summer vacation plans. However, choosing to go to the dentist is much better than having to go because of a dental emergency. While we are ready, willing, and able to help in those situations, we would much rather help you prevent a problem today than treat one tomorrow.

If you are planning a family vacation, you don’t want to arrive at your destination to learn that your son is developing a toothache. That won’t make for a fun family memory.

By scheduling a dental cleaning and exam before your trip, you can reduce the risk of having that particular issue. A professional dental cleaning will get rid of plaque and tartar buildup. A dental exam can find a problem in the early stages. Removing decay now and filling the tooth can keep your little one smile and eat without pain.

If your kids play sports in the summer, you also want to protect their winning smiles — regardless of the score at the end of their games. The best way to do that is with a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard. These offer better protection and they are more comfortable than the bulky mouthguards you can buy in stores. Wearing a mouthguard won’t stop accidents, but it could stop someone from breaking or losing a tooth.

Plan Ahead

Summer is a perfect time to schedule routine dental care anyway. By making these appointments in the summer, you don’t have to take your kids out of class for routine care. Coincidentally, these preventive can help your kids maintain their focus in class, according to the Children’s Dental Health Project.

Summer also is a good time to begin orthodontic care. We are a Preferred Provider for Invisalign clear aligners. This is a great alternative to braces.

The aligners were originally developed with adults in mind, but they have proven to be effective for many teens as well. By starting this treatment in the summer, your daughter or son can get used to their aligners before classes resume in the fall.

Invisalign has proven to be effective on bite issues, gaps between teeth, and crooked teeth. The aligners are more comfortable to wear than braces, which may be another reason to talk to our doctors about this option.
