Preparing for Your Alpharetta Dental Visit

Whether you’re preparing to bring your child to the dentist for the first time or just gearing up for your family’s biannual checkup, taking a few moments to prepare for your dental visit can make this experience a smooth and easy one.

  • Schedule your family dentistry appointment on a day when you and your family won’t be rushed. A thorough dental exam and cleaning can take time; you won’t want to feel nervous or stressed about being on time to another activity.
  • Make a list of any medications your family members are taking and any special health considerations before you leave for the dental office. Your dentist will use this information to deliver personalized treatment for your family’s unique needs.
  • If your children are anxious about visiting the dentist, take some time to discuss their fears and explain what they can expect. Try to arrive early so your children can talk to the dental staff and acclimate to the office. Let your dentist know that your children are nervous—he will take special care during their appointment to ease their fears.

Alpharetta Family Dentistry Services

Over the years, most families experience a wide range of dental issues. Here are a few of the services that you and your family members can receive at Cosmetic Dentistry Center of Alpharetta.

  • Orthodontics: About 45% of children need braces to correct serious malocclusion, or tooth misalignment. At our Alpharetta dental office, we offer orthodontic services to children and adults.
  • Routine Cleanings: Seeing a dentist for a routine bi-annual cleaning is an essential aspect of good dental health. Dr. Myers has the skill and patience necessary to clean the teeth of children of all ages.
  • X-Rays and Exams: X-rays are important for identifying issues that aren't visible from the outside. In addition to taking x-rays, Dr. Myers is fully qualified to screen for a wide range of oral conditions, including oral cancer.
  • Emergency Dentist: We offer immediate care when unexpected issues arise, and will get to you as soon as possible.

​Keys to a Healthy Mouth

Encouraging your family members to engage in good dental practices can help keep them healthy for years to come. Here's a brief review of how you and your family members can keep your teeth healthy and your smiles bright. family-dental-appointments

    • Brushing: Home care is a huge part of good dental health. Most dentists recommend that you brush twice every day. For the best results, you should brush for at least two minutes every evening.
    • Flossing: Flossing once a day is important for getting the plaque that accumulates between the teeth. It's a good idea to consult a dentist to make sure you have the proper flossing technique.
    • Healthy Diet: Dentists recommend that you limit your intake of sweets, soda, and other items that can potentially cause decay. Staying away from sugary foods isn't just good for your teeth, but for your whole body.

    The Importance of Your Alpharetta Biannual Checkups

    Visiting your dentist twice a year is an important part of maintaining your family’s dental health. These biannual checkups are excellent opportunities to check in with your dentist about your dental care needs, as well as receive the professional treatment only your dentist can provide. If you’d like to schedule an appointment for family dentistry in Alpharetta, please call Cosmetic Dentistry Center of Alpharetta today.
    • Many dental problems start small and don’t cause pain or noticeable changes in the mouth at first. During your biannual checkup, your dentist will check for signs of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer so these conditions can be treated promptly before they cause serious health concerns.
    • Every day, plaque accumulates on your teeth. Brushing and flossing remove most plaque, but over time, any remaining plaque hardens into tartar on your teeth, which brushing and flossing cannot remove. Only your dentist’s professional tools can effectively remove tartar to prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease.
