Child’ First Visit

Child’s Complete Check-Up
At Lilburn Family Dentistry, on your child's first visit, the doctor will perform a complete dental exam of their teeth and gums. If necessary, the dental hygienist will also professionally clean their teeth. If your child is a thumb sucker, the doctor will check for dental issues associated with this behavior. Finally, the doctor may recommend a fluoride treatment to help prevent tooth decay.
Preventive care is essential for your child's overall health. At Lilburn Family Dentistry, we take the time to instruct our parents and children on the proper way to brush and floss their child's teeth. We recommend regular cleanings, dental exams and fluoride treatments, because early cavity detection is important for young developing teeth.
Restoration means recovering a tooth's health and strengthening your child's bite. Primary teeth play a significant role in your child's development including learning to eat and speak. Even at a young age, your child could develop a cavity that needs to repair. One way to remedy the situation is through tooth-colored fillings that are safe for children
Emergencies happen all the time! Children are active and love to play. Unfortunately, they also fall and hurt themselves. For a dental emergency, call our Lilburn office and speak to a staff member. Two kinds of dental emergencies in young children are toothaches and knocked out teeth. Toothaches are common and can occur for many reasons. Knocked out teeth usually happen due to a traumatic blow and require immediate attention. The staff at Lilburn Family Dentistry is here to help you in an emergency situation.
Your child's baby teeth are critical and have some significant responsibilities. Until your child reaches adolescence, their primary teeth will not only help them with their bite and chewing, but their teeth also assist them to speak correctly. Their baby teeth also function as a guide for their permanent teeth. As a matter of fact, the primary purpose of baby teeth is to hold the space for the adult teeth. Children may need spacers if they lose a tooth too early or have a baby tooth extracted. The purpose of a spacer is to keep the space open to allow the permanent tooth to erupt and come into place.
