3 Reasons to Schedule a ‘Spring Cleaning’ With Your Dentist

If the budding of spring makes you want to clean out your closets and organize your garage, you are certainly not alone. However, if you really want to invest your time wisely, consider a “spring cleaning” with your dentist. This type of teeth cleaning is far beyond what you can do at home with your toothbrush and floss. In fact, a routine dental visit offers a number of benefits towards your oral health, your well-being and even your wallet!

Regardless of your age, dental exams are recommended every six months. Here are three top reasons why you should schedule that spring cleaning with your dentist sooner rather than later:

Prevent Costly Treatments

By attending your routine dental cleaning and exam, we can not only rid your teeth and gums of the harmful plaque that causes decay and gum disease, but we can also catch dental problems at their earliest and most treatable stage. In other words, a small cavity can be treated conservatively with a dental filling as opposed to root canal therapy and a dental crown if the decay is not addressed in a timely manner. Remember that many dental problems don’t produce outward symptoms until it is too late. Your routine exam will include a set of x-rays to reveal what may be festering beneath the surface!

Support Your Overall Health

There is a strong connection between oral health and body health. Therefore, by taking care of your mouth and seeing your dentist twice a year, you can also protect your overall health. Gum disease has been linked to stroke, heart attack, diabetes and premature birth! That routine dental checkup has more value than you think!

Screen for Oral Cancer

You may not realize it, but your regular dental exam also includes a quick and painless screening for oral cancer. Mouth cancer can be deadly if not treated early. At your appointment, we will use trained technique and advanced tools to detect signs of oral cancer in the gums, cheek, lips and tongue.

Gain a Fresher, Brighter Smile

Don’t dismiss the fact that your “spring teeth cleaning” can also make you feel and look better. A professional cleaning rids your teeth of bad oral bacteria and that sticky film of plaque, but it also eliminates stubborn stains that you can’t remove at home. The result is a confident and healthy smile as you walk away.

At Gilreath Dental Associates, we want to keep you away from the dental chair as much as possible. However, in order to prevent the need for unplanned dental repairs, you must stay on top of your routine visits. If you haven’t seen the dentist this year, go ahead and schedule that spring teeth cleaning with Marietta’s most trusted team. Call Gilreath Dental Associates today – we can treat your entire family.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
