Why Choose Transforming Smiles for Children’s Dentistry?
- Safe Oral Conscious Sedation Available
- Over 3 Decades Of Trusted Clinical Experience
- Protective Sealants & Fluoride Supplements Available
Dr. Carter and Dr. Zafrani encourage parents to schedule a first appointment for children here in Lawrenceville when they’re around the age of two. This visit will be very short and gentle – our top goal is to help young patients become accustomed to the sights, sounds, and friendly faces here at Transforming Smiles. Then, once they’re a little older, we can start performing checkups, tooth-by-tooth inspections, and periodontal exams in a much more comfortable environment. Dr. Carter or Dr. Zafrani will also assess the development of their teeth and overall bite, checking for any potential concerns that may require intervention.
Regular Checkups and Hygiene Visits
As children grow, it’s important to schedule ongoing checkups and professional hygiene visits for them every six months on average. Our team members can also teach them proper oral homecare techniques, including good brushing and flossing strategies. We’ll be sure to make the lessons fun!
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Supplements
Dental sealants and fluoride supplements provide valuable extra boosts of protection against the threat of tooth decay for growing smiles. Sealants are thin, tough coatings that cover the chewing surfaces of hard-to-reach back teeth (premolars and molars), blocking out pesky food particles and infectious bacteria that may settle into place there otherwise. Meanwhile, fluoride is a natural mineral that attracts other fortifying minerals, strengthening tooth enamel and effectively reducing the risk of cavity development. Both of these services are quick, easy, and pain-free.
In some instances, Dr. Carter or Dr. Zafrani will use CTx3 gel to protect your child’s teeth from decay. This gel is used to remineralize enamel and neutralize the acidity that can occur in some children’s mouths. Dr. Carter and Dr. Zafrani wants your child to have a bright, beautiful smile, which is why he uses CTx3 gel to prevent caries and deterioration.
Optimal Oral Health
At our Lawrenceville children’s dentistry practice, let us help your child learn the importance of oral health. In some cases, Dr. Carter or Dr. Zafrani may refer your child to a pediatric specialist. We will always help you make the best choices for their dental health care. Families of all shapes and sizes from Gwinnett County, Atlanta, Duluth, Suwanee, and all surrounding areas are always welcome.
