Preventative Dentistry and Silver Diamine Fluoride

Preventive Dental Care with SDF in Warner Robins GA

Little girl waiting for her dental exam at our Warner Robins pediatric dental officeOur number one priority at Warner Robins Pediatric Dentistry is not to fix your kid’s teeth. We would much rather prevent any possible problems. Our goal is for every child to be happy and healthy. The easiest way to do this is to address problems before they occur and that starts from your child’s first visit. The staff and Dr. Brandon will look for any possible future issues and provide guidance on how to avoid problems. We also have a variety of methods to help prevent cavities including topical fluoride varnish, sealants and professional cleanings.

You might have heard about something called Silver Diamine Fluoride either in the news or from one of your friends. Silver Diamine Fluoride is a liquid that can be applied to teeth with cavities. The goal of applying it is to prevent the cavity from getting bigger. It is a fantastic option for helping to control the spread of cavities. It is not the final treatment for a tooth but can allow the dentist to delay treatment until a later time. The only downside of this treatment is that it stains the cavity black. Dr. Pennington will discuss the treatment with you and help you determine if it would be the best option for your child. When appropriate, Silver Diamine Fluoride can be a great tool to help take care of your child.

  • review rating 5  They were very friendly.. the dentist actually took the time to help educate you on what's going on.. I didn't have to wait a long time.. from the front desk to the dental assistant were so friendly... I'm thinking about making this a permanent dental place for all of my kids... They don't wear white coats because most kids have white coat syndrome.. soooo friendly I love the place... I have been looking for a dentist for my kids and have been settling.. so 2020 I'm transferring my kids here.. 😁😁🤩🤩

    review rating 5  This was my child’s first dentist visit. The Dentist and Dental Assistants were very informative. They are very good with kids especially if you have a very inquisitive child like mine. The atmosphere from the front desk to the rooms were very clean. If you’re for a Dental hygienists with patience and kindness and will take his their time with your children, this is the place to visit. We have now found the right dentist for our son. Thank you

  • review rating 5  My whole experience was wonderful. I took my 10 month old in for her very first dental appointment. The receptionists on the phone were very helpful when scheduling, the dental assistant who brushed my daughters teeth was so sweet and wonderful with her, and last but not least the Dr was so friendly and gentle with my daughter, and was great at explaining everything to me as well.

    review rating 5  Best pediatric dentist and staff I’ve ever encountered! The examination was thorough and they swiftly took care of my concerns for my child. I’ve been searching for a pediatric dentist for months. I called them once and my son had an appointment the next day! My 4 year old is a really tough critic (as they are) lol He’s not a fan of “doctors” but he won’t stop talking about his appointment. He’s actually excited to see them again! ❤️

    review rating 5  Was referred by our regular dentist for a cavity filling for my 5 year old daughter. Showed up for our consult, and they were able to work her in immediately for her filling. We were out in an hour and a half. Loved Dr. Brandon too- he and Kayla were excellent with my girl.

    review rating 5  Visited the office with my 5 year old after being referred by her "normal" dentist. I LOVED THIS OFFICE!! The entire staff made us feel like so welcome! Dr Pennington took time to explain everything about my daughter's upcoming procedure and answered all my questions. By the end of the visit, I requested all my children (3 of them)records be sent to Dr. Pennington's office and set my boys up for their next appointment! I have finally found an amazing dentist for my kids to make them feel comfortable! Thank you everyone for being amazing today!
