Coming on a regular basis is a way to catch anything that you may not know is going on in your mouth. For instance, a lot of people don't have pain when they have cavities. Normally, if you have pain with a cavity, it's because it's gone so far that it may not just be a regular so-called filling. It may be extending or approaching a root canal, or something like that. Gingivitis, you may not have pain, with gingivitis, which is just irritation of your gums, which is also reversible. But if you wait until you do start having sensitivity, or bleeding with your gums, then it may be, now, not reversible. It turned into a perio, or more complicated procedure. As opposed to a regular cleaning, now you need something a little bit more extensive, or complicated. So, coming in on a regular basis, just kind of prevents you from either A, getting a cavity or having gingivitis, or periodontal disease. Or if you do have something going on, we help you to prevent it from getting worse.

Let’s work together to keep your teeth looking great. Schedule your next dental checkup at McRae Family Dental. We have three locations:
We have early morning and evening hours and can make Saturday appointments by request at our Baxter Street office.
Maintain Your Smile With Routine Dental Care
Your first appointment is particularly important. It’s our first opportunity to get to know you and for you to meet our team. We take your dental and medical history, and we evaluate your oral health during this visit. This includes digital X-rays and a discussion of what treatments we may recommend.
As part of your professional cleaning, we will take away tartar and plaque buildup. We also are prepared to help if we notice a problem, such as a cavity or a periodontal infection. Tooth fillings can repair teeth that have been affected by decay, and we offer nonsurgical gum disease treatments, including the LANAP procedure. In addition to those basic services, you can receive fluoride treatments to strengthen your teeth. Dental sealants also can be applied to act as a barrier between your teeth and harmful bacteria.
Be Proactive About Your Oral Health
According to the National Institutes of Health, roughly 1 in 4 American adults has an untreated cavity. This is just one reason your routine dental checkups are so valuable. It’s also a factor in why we do things to make your visits easier. This starts with our compassionate team of professionals, but we also have invested in dental technology, such as cavity detectors, dental lasers, and CEREC same-day dental crowns, to improve the quality of your care. For your comfort, we offer amenities and two kinds of dental sedation.
Our goal is to improve the lives of our patients one smile at a time. We hope to see you at McRae Family Dental soon. Call today to plan your dental cleanings and exams in Athens, GA at any of our offices:
