Children's Dentistry

We treat children like family at Southern Rivers Dental and are always excited to see them grow up with healthy teeth and a great smile. Our compassionate Newnan, GA dentists are always ready to share a laugh with your child, and our hygienists provide comfort and reassurance to each child who comes into our dental practice for a professional teeth cleaning.

Simply put, children love coming to our Newnan, GA dental office, and we love having them here.

An Ounce of Prevention Equals a Lifetime of Healthy Teeth

At Southern Rivers Dental, an ounce of prevention goes a long way, and it begins with a thorough oral health exam twice per year.

Because we customize our approach to your child’s oral health, specifically if he or she is prone to cavities or has other dental health issues, a modified treatment plan, and schedule will be utilized instead.

Our dentists, however, are very good at instilling healthy habits in children by teaching them about their oral health, cavities, and why a good health routine at home is the best course. Our top Newnan, GA dentists also use age-appropriate language and are good at building solid rapports with children of all ages.

Our dental hygienists provide a nurturing environment for children and are very good at easing your child’s fear of the dental office. In fact, our pediatric patients love our dental hygienists and enjoy having their teeth cleaned as a result.  

We begin seeing children shortly before kindergarten, and our preventive care includes:

  • Regular dental exams
  • Digital x-rays for safe and clear images
  • Professional teeth cleaning at least twice per year

Dental Fillings and Extractions

General dentistry is maintenance dentistry, and our dentists excel at repairing the childhood dental issues that we have all faced at one time or another. And they always apply a gentle hand when filling cavities in our Newnan, GA dental office.

In some cases, older teens require wisdom teeth extractions. These teeth are the last to come in, and they sometimes encroach on other teeth. In some situations, they only partially erupt, which can cause pain, swelling and puts your child at an increased risk for a dental infection.

We offer nitrous oxide, oral or IV sedation—the latter is especially helpful for older teens who are feeling anxious.

A Compassionate Team for Your Child

We invite you to schedule your child’s next dental exam at Southern River’s Dental where we offer excellent oral health care, and each child gets a trip to the prize box, too!
