Good oral health begins with good dental hygiene. Along with a daily brushing and flossing routine, a regular visit to Atlanta Dental Arts and our dental hygienists for a thorough examination of your teeth and gums is essential.
Dr. Williams will examine your teeth and gums for decay, periodontitis, and gingivitis. We'll check your neck and mouth for lumps, red or white patches, or chronically sore areas that could be a sign of oral cancer. If you are having soreness in your jaw, we'll check for TMJ and TMD.
Most people will need just a cleaning and polishing to remove tartar and brighten their teeth. If we discover that you have a moderate to severe gum condition like gingivitis or periodontitis then it is likely that we'll recommend a deep cleaning, root scaling or planing. These deep cleaning procedures can have a fundamental impact in preventing bone loss and can assist with helping you to keep your natural teeth.
In addition to the dental procedures, we will teach you how to practice good oral hygiene, and discuss other preventive dental care approaches. We may suggest lifestyle changes like cutting back on smoking or alcohol and soda intake if we think it will help your overall dental health.
We offer General & Family Dentistry services, Cosmetic Dentistry and Dental Implants, Invisalign and Orthodontics, Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns, Teeth Whitening, and a wide variety of other dentistry services.
