Family Dentist in Peachtree, GA
Dr. Brian Linton and Dr. Ed Davis are your trusted general dentists in Peachtree, GA. They have served the Fayette County community for several years and look forward to adding your family to their patient list. You can rely on them to provide high-quality care to every member of your family. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding our family dentistry services:
When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?
You should schedule your child’s first dental appointment after the eruption of their first tooth, or at least by their first birthday. We will provide them a gentle cleaning and examine their mouth for proper development.
Bringing your child to the dentist as soon as possible will go a long way in setting them up for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits.
By introducing them to the dental chair early, you are allowing them to become comfortable having their teeth evaluated and teaching them the importance of taking care of their dental health.
How can I help my child prepare for their first dental appointment?
The best thing you can do for your child’s first dental appointment is to positively reinforce the experience. There’s no need to warn them about loud noises or needles.
During their first appointment, we will take the time to explain our processes and procedures to them in kid-friendly terminology so that they are fully informed, but never overwhelmed or frightened.
Can I schedule a dental appointment for me and my child at the same time?
We will do the best we can to schedule your family’s appointments within a similar time frame so that you aren’t making several trips to the dentist’s office.
Talk with our office staff about this, and they will work with you to determine when is the best time to have your family’s dental appointments scheduled.
My child is nervous about going to the dentist. What can be done?
We offer sedation dentistry solutions for children who experience dental anxiety. Our sedative options include laughing gas and oral-conscious sedative pills. Dr. Linton and Dr. Davis can inform you which would be best to treat your child’s dental anxiety.
Both of these sedative options help keep your child still, calm, and comfortable while we perform any necessary procedures. They will remain awake through the procedures, but in a dream-like state that ensures they are relaxed.
