The Value of Combined Care Milton, GA
Woman with braces

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we are proud of our ability to provide excellence in both pediatric dental care and orthodontic care. In doing so, we can offer a number of valued benefits to our patients. While the convenience of having dental care and orthodontics under one roof is obvious, there are ways it can benefit your child’s oral health too. Pediatric dentistry and orthodontics are complementary specialties, so we like to keep them together, all in one place.

The Full Picture

Pediatric dental care involves the examination, diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions and injuries. It focuses on educating young patients about oral hygiene and establishing strong preventive measures.

Orthodontics involves the careful adjustment of the teeth to correct misalignment and move the teeth and jaws into better position. This is accomplished through a number of measures that are specific to each patient, including retainers, spacers, braces, aligner trays and more.

It is important to note that orthodontic treatment is most effective in adolescence or late childhood when the positioning of adult teeth is most malleable. This makes working alongside pediatric dentistry a natural and ideal match!

Identifying Orthodontic Concerns Early

As previously mentioned, it is best to begin orthodontic treatment earlier rather than later. When your child’s orthodontist and pediatric dentist work side by side, it becomes easier to diagnose a misalignment or malocclusion as well as determine the most appropriate time to start treatment. You can skip the process of being referred out to a different practice or waiting on x-rays to be transferred. Both dentist and orthodontist can stay abreast of a concerning issue and monitor it more closely.

Better Dental Care While in Braces

Many patients falsely assume that if they are regularly visiting their orthodontist, they can steer clear of the dentist. The truth is, a practice that exclusively offers orthodontics will not tend to the health needs of your teeth and gums. This can be detrimental, as it is common to face extra dental health challenges while wearing braces because it is harder to keep your teeth and gums clean. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we can give special attention to maintaining dental health and hygiene in conjunction with orthodontic adjustments. Combined care means we can monitor the movement of your teeth while also watching for early signs of decay, gingivitis and other dental health concerns.

A More Convenient and Comfortable Experience

Last but not least, both parents and kids can reap the benefits of convenience when choosing our practice of combined care. We know that school activities, sports practices and other obligations can quickly fill up your schedule. As a patient of Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, you’ll only need to keep up with one set of appointments. Not to mention, you can watch your child become more comfortable with one team of dentists and feel at ease in one environment. Establishing trust between children and their dentist means a less stressful visit for the entire family!

When it comes to your child’s smile, we offer a very personalized and team-oriented approach. In one place, you can trust that we will care for the health of their teeth and gums as well as identify and treat orthodontic problems in a timely manner. To learn more about the benefits of combined care at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, please give us a call.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
