I have been blessed through the years. I married my high school sweetheart on January 1, 2000. While I was attending University of Florida College of Dentistry, we were welcomed with our first child, Brooke. After graduating dental school in 2004, I joined my father's wonderful practice in Deltona, FL with amazing patients and staff that welcomed me with open arms. About a year and a half later, our youngest daughter Alyssa was born. Through the years I have grown to have a soft spot for New Smyrna Beach as my parents first moved over here in 1995.
The first "regular" dental visit should be just after your child's third birthday. The first dental visit is usually short and involves very little treatment. We may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during the examination if he or she is more comfortable. We will gently examine your child's teeth and gums. X-rays may be taken (to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child's permanent teeth under the gums). We may clean your child's teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay.
You and Dr. Kornegay may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
