Family Dentistry in Suwanee
What Is Family Dentistry?
Family dentistry is at the heart of what we do. Our general dentistry services for children and adults include the preventive care that keeps your teeth and gums healthy, as well as restorative dental work that repairs or replaces teeth that are damaged by decay or dental trauma.
Comprehensive Evaluations and Dental Cleanings
Dental sealants are made of a safe resin material that is applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities. The sealant material fills in the crevices of a tooth and “seals” off the tooth from cavity-causing agents like food and plaque. The teeth are prepared for the sealant application and the sealant is painted directly onto the chewing surface of each tooth and then hardens. Sealants are applied in one visit.
Oral Cancer Screening
Your comprehensive oral evaluation also includes a cancer screening, which identifies any suspicious lesions or sores on the lips, neck, gums, and other soft tissues of the mouth.
Restorative dentistry includes dental fillings, dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures. The goal of these procedures is to restore function, strength, and appearance after a tooth is damaged.
Sometimes removing a tooth is the only option available for restoring oral health. We offer tooth extractions right in our office, so you won’t need to have to find a separate specialist to get the care you need.

Frequently Asked Questions About Family Dentistry
What procedures does a family dentist do?
A family dentist provides a wide range of preventive and restorative procedures for both children and adults, as well as specialty procedures like sleep apnea treatment and dental implants.
Do family dentists do extractions?
Yes, our family dentists perform simple, non-surgical tooth extractions. When a surgical extraction is needed, we have an on-site oral surgeon who can perform the procedure, so you won’t need to find a specialist and visit a different practice.
What does restorative dental treatment cover?
Restorative dentistry is any procedure that restores the health, strength, and function of a tooth that has been damaged by decay or dental trauma.
What happens if I don’t fill a cavity?
If a cavity is not treated, it won’t resolve on its own. Instead, it will continue to spread throughout the tooth, damaging the structure and making it vulnerable to fracture. Getting a dental filling as soon as a cavity is identified will help you prevent the need for a crown, extraction, or root canal.
