Pediatric Dentistry in Atlanta
The key to children and teenagers maintaining good oral health is to establish good dental hygiene habits from an early age. At Atlanta Smiles & Wellness, Drs. Dina Giesler and Marianna Kovitch pride themselves on providing quality dental care for patients of all ages in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Dr. Giesler is known for her extensive knowledge and gentle approach to pediatric dentistry. The trusted dentist completed her general dentistry residency at the University of Oklahoma medical center and received extensive training in pediatric dentistry at the Oklahoma children’s hospital. Whether baby, infant or teenager, we can help keep your child’s smile both beautiful and healthy for years to come.
“Baby and Me” Visits
Your baby’s first dental visit should take place as soon their first tooth erupts or by age 1 at the latest. During your baby’s first dental visit, we will perform a gentle and thorough examination of their gums and teeth (if present). We will also take the time to educate you on the proper way to care for your baby’s teeth and gums.
Routine Dental Exams and Cleanings
Like adults, children should visit their dentist for a routine checkup and cleaning every six months. Dental exams are essential in monitoring the health of your child’s teeth, jaw and gums. If there is a problem detected, we can address it promptly. Your child’s dental exam will be stress-free and relaxed as we engage the child by answering their questions. We also offer interactive tutorials on the basics of oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing.
Dental sealants are an easy and inexpensive way to protect your child’s teeth from cavities and decay. Placed on the grooves of your child’s back teeth (molars), dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that have been found to reduce decay by nearly 80 percent. We may recommend dental sealants for your child as soon as they turn 6 years old, which is typically when the first molars emerge.
We offer an array of restorative dental treatments to keep your child’s oral health in optimum shape, including tooth-colored dental fillings, dental crowns, fluoride treatments, tooth extraction and root canals. These treatments can be used to address various dental issues, including tooth decay and broken or chipped teeth. We highly encourage sedation dentistry in the form of nitrous oxide for all restorative procedures.
Emergency Dental Care
If your child experiences a dental injury such as during an accident or when playing sports, we are ready to treat it. We offer several treatment options to repair or restore broken, chipped teeth or replace missing teeth.
If your child is in need of orthodontics for misaligned teeth or an improper bite, we can recommend an appropriate treatment and get you referred to the right specialist.
