Children's Dentistry – Buckhead, Atlanta
Helping Kids Develop & Maintain Healthy Smiles
Our dental office regularly cares for the dental needs of children as young as three years old. However, if you notice that your child has a problem with their teeth or gums prior to this age, please schedule an appointment for children's dentistry in Buckhead, Atlanta here at Vason Family Dentistry. You may also want to bring your child to your dental checkup when they are about two so that they can become familiar with the sights, sounds, and friendly helpers in our dental office. We call this a Happy Visit. Your child's independent checkup at age three will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection and periodontal exam. Our doctors will check for proper development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern.

Children’s Dentistry Through the Years
As your child grows, they will need regular dental checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on their own. Our Buckhead, Atlanta children's dentists may recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements. Dental sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Fluoride attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.
Let us help your children learn the importance of optimal oral health from a young age. Call to schedule a Happy Visit or dental checkup today! In some cases, we refer children to pedodontists, which are specialists in children's dentistry. We will help you make the best choices for your child's unique and precious personality.
