Dentistry at Windermere asserts that parents should consider the health of their children’s teeth and gums as important as their own. For this reason, children’s dentistry is an absolutely integral part of our Cumming family dental office. The American Dental Association recommends parents schedule their child’s first dental appointment by age three, or even before that, when their child’s first tooth comes in. As young as that it, there is a long-term benefit to look forward to. By teaching your kids healthy dental habits at an early age, the likelihood that they’ll maintain those healthy habits into their adult years is greatly improved.
Cumming family dentists Dr. Brian, Dr. Katherine and Dr. Hwang enjoy treating your children, and it is our goal to make every visit as fun and educational as possible. As a Cumming family dental office, children’s dentistry is fundamental to our practice, and we hope to monitor and safeguard the health of your children’s teeth as they grow and develop. We accomplish this by teaching them effective brushing habits and routines and through semiannual hygiene treatments and checkups. Regular checkups are an important aspect of providing family dentistry in Cumming, and we encourage patients of all ages to make semiannual treatments and checkups a priority.
Children tend to be more susceptible to developing decay in hard-to-brush areas, but we can protect these problem teeth using dental sealants. These coatings are made from tough plastic, and they’re applied to the chewing surfaces of certain teeth in an easy and comfortable way. Better yet, they can last for multiple years and are always able to be reapplied easily if they’re lost for whatever reason.
Fluoride treatments are another aspect of providing family dentistry to the Cumming area. Most of the bottled drinking water used in so many homes these days lacks fluoride, which is vital to good oral health. For this reason, Cumming family dentists Dr. Hwang, Dr. Brian and Dr. Katherine offer fluoride treatments commonly to children as well as adults. Fluoride is a vital mineral that attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and help fight against decay. Prevention is the key to a healthy smile, and our approach to children’s dentistry and family dentistry emphasizes avoiding dental complications before they occur.
Dr. Hwang, Dr. Brian and Dr. Katherine provide a comprehensive range of family dental services, which include general care, restorative services, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics. Their private - solo practice offers a variety of dental services to the Cumming area and surrounding cities.
