Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.

During your dental visit, our doctors can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer.

Dental exams are a critical component of maintaining your oral health. During your dental exams, we look over your teeth and other structures in your mouth, looking for signs of any issues such as physical damage, decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and more. However, there are many components of your mouth that we cannot see. At North Atlanta Family Dentistry, we can get a closer look at these hidden structures of your mouth with digital radiography.

Gum disease is an oral health issue that develops as a result of a bacterial infection. An abundance of bacteria irritates your gums, leading to inflammation. While the earliest symptoms of gum disease often do not appear to be that serious, the condition can lead to serious consequences when it goes untreated. Without treatment, you can be left with gum recession, loose teeth, and even tooth loss. At North Atlanta Family Dentistry, we can provide you with the periodontal care you need to restore the health of your mouth and your overall health following gum disease.

Your mouth consists of several components that work together to enable your mouth to perform some different functions. One of these components is your temporomandibular joints. You have two of these joints, one on each side of your face. These joints are the point at which your lower jaw, or mandible, connects to your skull. They are ball and socket joints, which enable you to open and close your mouth among other things. With your TMJ, you can bite, chew, speak, and more. If these joints become irritated, it can cause a significant amount of pain that can interfere in your life. At North Atlanta Family Dentistry, we can diagnose the cause of your TMJ issues and provide you with the treatment you need.

Sedation Dentistry for Anxiety
Brushing and flossing are two very important dental habits. These habits help you to prevent serious issues such as cavities and gum disease. In addition to your daily oral hygiene routine, it is also important that you have your mouth professionally cleaned and examined at least twice a year. However, if the idea of going to the dentist makes you feel anxious, you may avoid going. Avoiding dental care can have serious effects on your oral health and the appearance of your smile. At North Atlanta Family Dentistry, we can help to make getting dental treatment easier with sedation dentistry.
