Preventive care in our North Atlanta dental practice
At Smiles of Johns Creek, your family's oral health is our top priority! We recommend that patients have a complete dental checkup and preventive dental cleaning every 3-6 months to help detect any problems early.
During your preventive dentistry appointments, your dentist and dental hygienist will check your teeth and gums carefully to look for signs of tooth decay or periodontal (gum) disease. Your hygienist will perform a routine teeth cleaning and give you tips on taking care of your teeth and gums at home. We may recommend necessary dental x-rays to view areas between the teeth and underneath the gums to look for changes or any areas of concern.
Periodontal disease and oral cancer are on the rise in the U.S. During your preventive visits, we will screen carefully for these conditions and advise you of any further treatment or follow up that may be required.
Dr. Bae and Dr. O'Neal provide general and cosmetic dentistry services, and always include time during their examination for a personal consultation to talk with you about your goals for your smile. Our dentists are trained in rebuilding smiles with dental crowns, bridges and dentures and cosmetic dentistry services such as porcelain veneers and cosmetic smile makeovers.
Children's Dentistry at Smiles of Johns Creek
We love introducing children to the dentist! We will always pace each visit to your child's comfort level to help them learn through a great experience. During their preventive appointments, we will check and clean their teeth and teach them how to do a good job brushing and flossing. Most children under age 5 will need a little help from mom or dad, so we will give you hygiene and nutrition tips to help your child have a healthy, happy smile.
Periodic dental x-rays will provide your dentist with information about your child's orthodontic development and help the dentist looks for early signs of tooth decay. We may recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants to protect tooth surfaces from harmful decay-causing bacteria.
We see children ages 3 years and older in our practice for routine care and will assist you with a referral to a pediatric dentist for younger children or in cases of complex needs.
