Family Dentist in Marietta, GA
It’s not just adults who deserve a healthy smile. Children are just as vulnerable to common oral health conditions like gum disease and tooth decay. This is why Thornton Dental Wellness in Marietta, GA is proud to offer family dentistry, focused on education and prevention, for patients of all ages.
We know how susceptible patients--and especially young patients--are to anxiety. That's why we approach every appointment with a desire to create positive experiences. We love it when patients come away from an appointment feeling good about their smile and their experience with us.
Why Are Regular Visits To a Family Dentist Important?
We recommend that all our patients come to Thornton Dental Wellness twice a year for a checkup and cleaning with their family dentist.
Why so often?
Because it's important to catch common oral health conditions like tooth decay and gum disease early. Treatment from your family dentist is less invasive and more comfortable when it happens sooner rather than later. What’s more, it’s not just your smile that’s affected by certain oral health conditions—your overall health is affected as well. Medical studies have tied a common condition like gum disease to other health conditions, like:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory ailments
- Pre-term birth
During your appointment, your Marietta, GA family dentist will look for conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ dysfunction, bruxism, and even oral cancer. Then, with a professional cleaning, we help you support your oral health further by thoroughly targeting plaque and staining.
Besides regular checkups and cleanings, our Marietta, GA family dentistry services also include:
