Boosting Your Dental Health from Home

Dental Heath Marietta GA

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has struck our nation, most of us have been forced to “do life” from home. We’ve adjusted to working at home, educating our children from home, eating at home and countless other tasks in an effort to stop the spread of the virus and keep our loved ones safer. Undoubtedly, our daily routines have been greatly disrupted or fallen apart altogether. As your Marietta dentist, however, we urge our patients to not let their oral health fall by the wayside. While you may not be setting your alarm clock, getting yourself ready and following a schedule like you normally would, don’t neglect your dental care routine.

Not only is it possible to maintain your dental health while clocking in more hours at home, but you can also take steps to improve your smile. This can help you avoid painful dental complications and the need for emergency treatment as well as protect and boost your overall health.

Consider the following easy ways that you and your family can take care of your smile during this unprecedented time.

#1 Know When to Replace Your Toothbrush.
Not only should you be taking the time to brush for two minutes twice a day, but it is important to make sure your brushing tool is up to par. If it has been 3 months or if the bristles look frayed, it is time to get a new toothbrush. Also, consider replacing your brush if you’ve been sick.

#2 Drink More Water.
Water brings countless benefits to your entire body. Your mouth, however, uses water in remarkable ways, including helping you avoid dry mouth, rinsing away food particles, neutralizing acids and stimulating saliva production. In addition, choosing water as your beverage comes without risk of sugars, acids or staining like many other drinks.

#3 Snack Smarter.
We know that staying at home can often bring extra trips to the kitchen for snacks. While it may be difficult to avoid snacking throughout the day, it is important to choose foods that are not high in sugars and refined carbs. Sugars that cling to your teeth, like gummies, sticky candy or even muffins, can put you at a much greater risk for cavities.

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
