Preventive dentistry is an essential cornerstone of your ongoing dental care, and one that Dr. Seekand and her team prioritize here in Conyers. After all, isn’t it much easier to treat a dental problem when it’s still small? With the help of regular checkups, professional cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and other valuable services, our goal is to protect and strengthen your smile so that it can serve you well for many years to come.
Whole families are always welcome here at Seek & Smile Dentistry! To schedule a first appointment, please contact us today.
You and your entire family should be attending at least two checkups and dental cleanings every year, or one every six months on average. Why? No matter how well you brush and floss at home, dental problems can still develop in subtle ways that are only noticeable by true professionals like Dr. Seekand and her staff. During a thorough evaluation of your oral health, we can locate these issues very early on and care for them right away, potentially saving your smile and your wallet from much bigger crises down the road.
In addition to your checkup, an in-depth cleaning by our talented hygienist can get rid of cavity-causing plaque, stubborn tartar, and even minor dental stains that have developed in the span of time between visits. We want you to leave our practice feeling refreshed and confident in your smile’s bright future!
Forming a positive relationship with the dentist early in life is ideal, and that’s just what we hope to accomplish when you escort your son or daughter in for their first visit here in Conyers. Dr. Seekand is a mother herself and always takes a kind, patient approach to her youngest patients in order to help them feel at ease – in fact, she regularly brings her son to work with her!
Teeth located far back in the mouth (such as molars and premolars) are likely to be prime targets for harmful bacteria and eventual cavities, especially for children who are still learning how to keep these areas clean with oral hygiene. As an added layer of protection, our team can provide dental sealants, which are tough plastic coatings that cover the chewing surfaces of these teeth and block out food particles and plaque from settling there over time.
Fluoride is a mineral that’s regularly added to municipal water supplies here in the United States – but why? Countless studies have shown that regularly drinking fluoridated water can have a strong positive effect on your smile, strengthening enamel and reversing the demineralization that leads to cavities over time. If you and your family prefer to drink fluoride-free bottled water, it’s likely that your teeth could use that extra boost of protection. At Seek & Smile Dentistry, we can provide you with professional fluoride treatments as an alternative.
Oral cancer may not be as widely discussed in the dentist’s office as cavities or gum disease, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be on the lookout for it. Thousands of new cases are diagnosed every year, and only around half of those patients will survive five more years. Thankfully, recovery rates spike upwards when symptoms are discovered very early on. During your regular checkup, Dr. Seekand will carefully inspect your mouth and oral tissue for signs of cancerous cells. If we locate anything concerning, we can guide you through the next steps for a proper biopsy and diagnosis.
The oral hygiene products you use can make a big difference in your smile’s overall well-being, which is why the Seek & Smile Dentistry wants to help patients make the best choices for you and your loved ones. We offer excellent toothpaste, mouthwashes, and other items that can bolster your personal care routine here in our Conyers office. In fact, members of our team use these same products in their own homes!
Do you regularly wake up in the morning with jaw pain or a serious headache? Do you notice that your teeth appear damaged or worn-down with no explanation as to why? These are common signs of bruxism, which is more commonly known as teeth grinding. This condition affects plenty of children and adults, and it usually happens at night when people are sleeping and blissfully unaware of the harm their smile is experiencing. With a custom-made nightguard from our practice, you can minimize dangerous contact between the rows of teeth and enjoy a worry-free night of sleep.
