Preschool 3 to 5 Years

During the preschool years, children from ages three to five have their full set of baby-teeth and wonderful smiles. While this smile will soon change as the permanent teeth begin to emerge, it is vital to keep it healthy. Maintaining dental checkups and cleanings, along with home oral care, can keep your preschooler’s smile healthy. Our kid-friendly team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville is your source for excellent pediatric dental care during these important years of dental development.

Preschoolers are at the stage where they begin to learn how to care for themselves. They learn to dress, tie their shoes, and care for their own teeth. It is important to encourage your child to brush and floss with your assistance. Dr. Chong and our team will help instruct both you and your child on the best techniques to ensure proper teeth cleaning. Your child should be brushing their teeth twice a day using a pea-sized portion of fluoride toothpaste. If their teeth are close together, flossing should also be performed. While preschoolers can begin to perform teeth brushing, it is important to monitor that they are doing it correctly and assist them to avoid missing spots that can lead to decay.

Dental Care for Preschoolers

Routine checkups and cleanings can detect any cavities or other dental issues early during the preschool years. Keeping the primary teeth healthy is important, and it is just as crucial to monitor the development of the permanent teeth. Dr. Chong and our pediatric dental team are here to help care for your child’s smile and prepare them for their adult teeth that are on the horizon.

To schedule a checkup for your preschooler, contact our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. We have a friendly, fun environment for caring for your child’s beautiful smile.

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...

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!

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.
