During the holiday season, it seems as though there are sugary sweets available everywhere you go. Whether it’s at work, at church or at your children’s school events, the cookies, brownies and pastries seem to be calling your name. Moderation is certainly the key to getting through this time of year with your waistline intact, but it is also important to pay attention to your teeth. With all the extra sweets, you could be setting yourself up for cavities or dental decay. Fortunately, Lanier Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a local dentist in the Atlanta area that is here to help you care for your teeth at any time of year.

General Services Offered by Our Dental Office

At our family dentistry office, we strive to build long-term relationships with our patients. We see children in our office beginning at the age of three. This ensures that we follow the health of your teeth, jaw and gums throughout your lifetime. We recommend that you schedule an appointment for a routine cleaning every six months. During this appointment, a dental hygienist thoroughly cleans your teeth by removing plaque and tartar build-up that you might have missed.

As soon as your dental hygienist is done with the cleaning, Dr. Alla Brown inspects your teeth and the rest of your mouth for potential problems. Some of the things she looks for include oral cancer, gum disease, problems with the roots of your teeth and more. If any issues are noted, Dr. Brown will ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure the problem is addressed.
