Primary teeth begin to erupt within the first six months of a baby’s life. By age 6 or 7, baby teeth start to fall out, as they are replaced with a permanent set. It is very important that kids receive quality dental care at infancy. We suggest dental exams at Athens Oconee Dentistry for infants, including risk assessment for dental caries in both mother and child. Tooth decay and cavities can develop early in life and cause damage that cannot be repaired. Recently, dental caries an infectious disease has become very common in children.
Dental implants are small screw-like, titanium posts that replace the roots of lost teeth. The prosthetic roots are inserted into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that is performed in our Watkinsville dental office. After the implant has been placed in your jaw, a custom designed porcelain tooth crown is attached. In some cases at Athens Oconee Dentistry , the implant post must be allowed to fuse with the bone for several months before it is permanently crowned; in other cases, you can have new (but temporary) teeth the same day your implants are placed.

We will examine your teeth and assess their condition in order to recommend the best procedure(s) to achieve your smile goals.
You might have a strict routine of brushing and flossing, and even avoid teeth-staining foods and drinks, but your teeth are still susceptible to discoloration or yellowing. If your smile has lost its brightness and shine and you want to get it back, you may be considering a tooth whitening treatment. This is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry and it can be found at Athens Oconee Dentistry in Watkinsville.
