Checkups & Cleanings

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we believe that a healthy smile is a confident smile. We offer routine dental checkups and cleanings as part of our top quality general dental care for your family. From children to senior adults, we help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums through all stages of life. A professional dental cleaning is necessary in order to remove stubborn plaque and calculus that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing at home. This can protect your smile from serious gum disease, enamel erosion and tooth decay.

Our experienced team of dental experts understands what it takes to keep patients comfortable and relaxed throughout their dental appointment. You can trust that we provide a customized treatment plan to address your unique smile needs. Scheduling a routine dental checkup and cleaning every six months can ensure your periodontal health is closely monitored and that tooth decay is detected and treated at its earliest stage. In addition, a dental cleaning will leave your teeth polished and your breath fresher for a more confident smile.

Preventative Services

Dental sealants treatment - before and after photos. Natural vs sealed tooth.It is our practice philosophy that prevention is a major advantage for our patients and something we take very seriously. As such, in addition to cleanings, we offer several other preventative services. We can apply dental sealants to patients of any age. Sealants are thin plastic coatings that are put on teeth to seal the grooves. The grooves are typically the most decay prone areas in our teeth and the area in which fluoride has the least affect. By sealing your teeth, we protect the teeth from decay and the need for a filling.

Fluoride treatments are often thought of by many people as a service for children. This is far from accurate. Fluoride is our first line of defense against decay in patients of all ages. Currently, most of us don’t get much fluoride… this is because we drink filtered water (which filters out fluoride as well as chlorine). We are a mobile society and often drink bottled waters (which typically don’t have fluoride in them). And American’s diets contain far more sugar (which is metabolized by bacteria and causes cavities) than generations before. Sports drinks, specialty coffee drinks and high carb meals and desserts have lead to an increase in cavities in all ages . Fluoride treatments (both home and in office treatments) provide a very beneficial and inexpensive way to supplement much needed fluoride. The American Dental Association recommends fluoride in patients of all ages.

We also use products like mints and gum to prevent decay. Yes, you read that right! Xylitol, an organic sugar, can help decrease decay in patients. We offer several inexpensive options in various flavors.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Our practice in Marietta proudly utilizes the latest in dental technology, which allows us to provide more comfortable, more efficient and more effective dental care to our patients. During your comprehensive dental exam, we use advanced technology such as ultrasonic scalers, laser cavity detection, oral cancer screenings and low-dose radiation digital x-rays. We make every effort to ensure your dental experience is both positive and rewarding.

If your dental exam reveals specific areas of concern, you can trust that Our dentists are equipped to treat all aspects of your smile. We offer a full menu of restorative and cosmetic dental services, including crowns, veneers, tooth colored fillings, tooth whitening, dental implants and more.

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
