General Dentist in in Alpharetta GA

Your Trusted Dentist in Alpharetta GA

Dr. Hedlund specializes in cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry. Her goal is to help her Alpharetta GA achieve lifelong oral health by offering comprehensive dental care. Whatever stage you are in with your dental care, Dr. Hedlund can help you get back on track to your ideal, healthy smile. Common dental concerns that we see in our office include:

Bleeding Gums

It is extremely common for patients to notice their gums bleeding immediately following brushing or flossing their teeth. This is often due to plaque or tartar buildup around the gumline. A thorough teeth cleaning can help in preventing this buildup, known as gingivitis, from festering into gum disease. However, if you wait too long to see a dentist after noticing your gums are inflamed, you could be putting yourself at risk for the more serious symptoms and risks of gum disease. We recommend scheduling an appointment for a cleaning as soon as possible if you notice your gums are bleeding.

Bruxism

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can be detrimental to your dental health. It can lead to symptoms like chronic jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, and worn down or loose teeth. Before tooth damage occurs, we want to help you prevent it. That’s why we treat our bruxism patients by recommending the use of a customized nightguard. The nightguard holds your jaw in a comfortable resting position and prevents tooth damage from unconscious tooth grinding while you sleep.

Crooked Teeth

If your teeth are crooked, this can cause both cosmetic and functionality concerns with your smile. Additionally, when your teeth are crooked, they can be harder to brush and floss as bacteria have more places to hide in your mouth. Our team treats crooked teeth discreetly through Invisalign. Invisalign is an invisible set of aligners that gradually encourage your teeth to shift into a straighter position. Patients eligible for Invisalign are those with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.

Dental Anxiety

Our office is a tranquil environment for all patients, but especially those with dental anxiety. We understand not everyone enjoys going to the dentist. That’s why we make our space as comforting and welcoming as possible. Additionally, we offer sedation dentistry options to help keep our most anxious patients calm.

Missing Teeth

If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Hedlund can provide a variety of tooth replacement solutions including dental implant restorations and dental bridges. These solutions are guaranteed to restore the look and functionality of your smile.

Sleep Apnea

If you experience sleep apnea or have had someone in your life complain about your loud snoring, Dr. Hedlund can help with your sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy involves the creation of a customized nightguard to help hold your jaw in a comfortable resting position while you sleep. It also ensures you have a proper airway, and that your soft tissues are not collapsing on each other as you breathe throughout the night.
