Services

Newnan Dentistry offers a wide variety of general, cosmetic & restorative dental services, providing dental care for adults and dental care for children.  We strive to bring you the very best in care using the best materials and technology available. We are also consistently continuing our education to learn new technology and techniques available for prevention, cosmetic enhancement and restoration of oral health.

Tooth decay in children is the #1 chronic childhood illness. Left untreated, it can have serious consequences.  The best way to combat tooth decay is through prevention, including regular dental visits.  Dental check-ups allow us to monitor the development of your child’s jaw and their permanent teeth. This pro-active measure helps identify possible future dental issues. Check-ups also allow us to teach and explain the importance of proper oral hygiene and answer any dental questions your child may have.

Please call our office at (770) 251-6868 if you have any questions about the services we offer. We would be glad to assist you.

An important part of good oral hygiene and preventive care is having regular dental cleanings. Children’s teeth are more prone to cavities, making preventive dental care especially important to the health of their teeth and gums. During a dental cleaning at Newnan Dentistry, we will remove plaque and tarter from your child’s teeth in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
Sealants help protect the chewing surfaces of back teeth from decaying. Normal pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth can trap food that can’t be removed by brushing or washed out by water or saliva. A sealant is a tough, plastic material designed to bond (stick) to tooth enamel. These clear or tooth colored sealants are painted onto the tooth surface to “seal” the pits and grooves and protect against decay. They are generally applied to children’s first permanent back teeth. Sealants are an excellent way to protect chewing surfaces of teeth from decay. They are a much better financial investment than treating decay after it has started. Sealants are not permanent. They generally last about five years with normal wear, but can wear off or chip off earlier in certain instances. Also, sealants do not prevent decay between teeth or the onset of gum disease, so regular home care and dental visits are important.

Tooth Colored Fillings, unlike silver fillings, are bonded onto your teeth. Tooth Colored Fillings are best for small cavity restorations and perfect for stained or irregular front teeth. Because they match the color of your natural teeth, Tooth-Colored Fillings are inconspicuous, and thus many parents choose this type of filling to keep their kid smiles beautiful.

Fluoride helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are given twice a year at the end of a dental exam and cleaning to children who still have developing teeth.
We monitor the development of your child’s jaw and their permanent teeth to be pro-active against possible dental issues.
Protect your child’s teeth!

All mouth guards are not created equal. Depending upon the design and materials used, mouthpieces will vary in fit, protection, ease of maintenance and longevity. We offer custom-made mouth guards. Formed from a cast model of your teeth, these custom-made guards are designed to cover all the teeth and are shown in the literature to be the best type of protection. These mouth guards can cushion falls and blows to the chin. Custom-made mouth guards may be slightly more expensive than commercially produced mouthpieces, but they offer the best possible fit and protection and are the most comfortable.

We care about the current and future health of your child’s teeth. We help teach your children good oral health habits and proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Hands-On Learning lab

We are always looking for ways to improve and bring better service and care to our patients and our community. That is why we are refining routine visits for children by adding a Hands-On Learning Lab.

The learning lab experiments will take place during each child’s hygiene appointment.   It is designed to teach them in a way that they will remember – by actively involving them in activities and science experiments that demonstrate the effects of nutrition and oral health habits on their teeth and overall health.

This provides us the opportunity to actively engage children in their oral health care.  Through hands-on experiments, they can explore the effects of drinking too much soda, learn the difference between tooth-friendly and non-tooth-friendly snacks, or see the effects of periodontal disease.  We have a range of experiments available to suit different age groups; from 2 to 18 years old.

By taking this extra step to establish healthy habits, we hope to help promote a lifetime of good oral health for your children and make a positive difference in the lives of our patients.

Free Dental Screenings

At Newnan Dentistry, we care about the current and future health of your child’s teeth. This is why we are offering free dental screenings for children ages 3 and up.

 

Why Screenings Are Important:

  • Tooth decay in children is the #1 chronic childhood illness. Left untreated, it can have serious consequences.  The best way to combat tooth decay is through prevention, including regular dental visits.
  • Dental screenings allow us to monitor the development of your child’s jaw and their permanent teeth. This pro-active measure helps identify possible future dental issues.
  • Dental screenings allow us to teach and explain the importance of proper oral hygiene and answer any dental questions your child may have.

What’s Included in a Screening:

  • Our team will evaluate your child’s oral hygiene, eating and drinking habits, cavity risks and teeth and jaw development.
  • We will check for abnormalities such as inflammation of the gums, cavities, misalignment, enamel defects, abscesses, pattern of tooth eruption and chipped, broken, or missing teeth.
  • We will teach your child proper oral hygiene techniques and discuss nutrition tips to maintain healthy teeth.

Many people, especially children, have fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist. However, we work to gain the trust of our patients through friendly, gentle, and caring treatment.  This helps to create a more relaxed, anxiety-free environment.  Consistent visits, starting at an early age, also help to dispel fear and anxiety.
