5 Reasons to Be Thankful For Your Teeth

Happy Thanksgiving Marietta GA

It’s the month of Thanksgiving and a time to reflect on what we are grateful for. As you recognize the value of family, friends and that plate of food in front of you, don’t forget about what allows you to eat that delicious Thanksgiving feast. There’s a lot to be grateful for when it comes to your teeth. Here are five of the many reasons why you should take the time to thank your teeth:

#1 Teeth can unite us.

A smile is the same in every language and culture. When you flash your teeth and smile, you can instantly break down barriers and earn a sense of unity and compassion.

#2. Teeth help us communicate.

Your tongue needs your teeth to pronounce syllables and words. Your teeth allow you to speak to others and express your needs.

#3. Teeth are incredibly strong.

Not only are teeth made of the most durable substance in your entire body, but the muscles that allow your teeth to bite down and chew are also remarkably strong. That doesn’t mean you can use your teeth to open packages and chomp ice all day, but you can confidently rely on healthy teeth for a long day of eating, speaking and smiling!

#4 Teeth contribute to your whole-body health.

Excellent oral health is linked to the health of your body. In fact, a healthy mouth can help prevent heart disease, osteoporosis and diabetes.

#5 Teeth are quite perceptive.

No, your teeth don’t have their own brain. However, our mouths develop habits that suggest they do. For example, you probably instinctively chew on the right side if you are right-handed and vice versa for left-handers. 

Give Your Teeth Some TLC

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
