Buckhead Esthetic Dentistry is a family focused practice. We treat all members of the family. We strive to develop lasting relationships as our patients grow up with us and we are committed to helping them achieve and maintain optimal oral health.
Many patients tell us that a visit to Atlanta dentist Dr. Jolanda Warren is unlike any other visit to the dentist. What sets us apart is the time we spend with each patient. During your routine examination, you can expect a one-on-one time with the dentist to discuss your goals and concerns. Dr. Warren will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, mouth, gums, jaw joints and other support structures. Our dental cleanings are very thorough, completed by a trained dental hygienist.
Dental cleanings are particularly important for children and adolescents who are susceptible to tooth decay and other dental problems. We encourage parents to bring children with them to the dentist at an early age so that children become comfortable and familiar with our office.
Early Treatment For Gum Disease With Routine Teeth Cleaning
If you are displaying early signs or symptoms of gum disease, we may perform scaling and root planing procedures to remove plaque and tartar from deep pockets in the gum. This type of intensive teeth cleaning can help to prevent gum disease from progressing and allow the damaged tissue to repair itself.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, many patients don’t recognize signs of gum disease until it is too late. Through routine teeth cleaning, our dentist and hygienists can easily identify early warnings signs and provide quick treatment.
Preventive dentistry is important for all patients regardless of age. We can treat the youngest and oldest smiles in your family, providing compassionate care and honest advice to help you make the best long term treatment decisions for you and your family.
