Preventive Care

Keeping your child’s smile healthy starts with preventive care with a pediatric dentist. Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville focuses on preventive dental care for our young patients, starting with their first visit as an infant and continuing through their teen years.

Checkups & Cleanings

Checkups every six months, starting with a child’s first visit before their first birthday, are the best way to prevent and address oral health issues. Routine checkups with a pediatric dentist can identify any developmental issues or tooth damage quickly, making it easier to correct the problem before it gets worse. If your child has a checkup every six months, it is unlikely a major oral health problem will remain undetected. If the dental problem is identified early, it can often be repaired quickly and require less invasive methods.

Cleanings are performed at the same time as checkups, helping prevent tooth decay. Dental cleanings are important for kids, especially as they are learning the best techniques for routine oral care. Developing teeth are more prone to decay, making it vital to maintain a regular cleaning schedule. Adolescents and teens with braces may need cleanings performed more often, usually about every three months. Our pediatric dentist and hygienist can help you and your child learn the best way to care for their developing smiles at home between cleanings at our office.

Cavity Prevention with Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that has been proven to strengthen enamel and prevent decay. Since kids and teens are more susceptible to tooth decay, cavity prevention with fluoride treatments can be beneficial. Fluoride treatments are an inexpensive and worthwhile investment if they can protect teeth from unnecessary decay and dental treatments.

Dental X-Rays

Part of pediatric dental care is using radiographs or x-rays to monitor teeth health and development. X-rays are needed to visualize unerupted teeth during the development stages and to identify decay or abnormalities on erupted teeth not visible to the naked eye. We utilize x-rays as part of our preventive care process to ensure every child’s oral health is carefully monitored and issues are quickly addressed when treatment is needed.

State-of-the-Art Dental Imaging for Children

Dr. Chong and Dr. Patel utilize advanced digital radiograph technology for the best images and the safety of our patients. Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville has invested in state-of-the-art dental imaging for children, using less radiation than traditional film x-rays. The process is quicker, and the images are clearer, helping us provide the best care for our young patients’ smiles. Digital imaging only requires minimal radiation. Our advanced equipment focuses on a smaller point for clearer images with very little radiation exposure.

Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville is dedicated to providing the best preventive care for your child’s smile, helping to prevent tooth damage and dental treatments. With routine checkups, cleanings and digital imaging, we can help protect your child’s smile and improve their oral health, while saving you money on dental care. Call today to schedule your child’s next cleaning and checkup.

Our Patients Reviews

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!

Natalie M.

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 Dental 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.
