Your Gum Health – More Important Than You Knew!

Gums and Healthy Teeth Marietta GAAre you looking for cosmetic dental treatment in Marietta, GA? To get that perfect smile, you may want to start by paying attention to your pink gums before your pearly-white teeth.

Your gums are far more than just skin around your tooth enamel. Your gums play a crucial role in both your oral and overall health.

Gums Keep Your Teeth in Place

Gingiva goes way beyond just the skin you see around your teeth. Your gums have complex layers that contain specialized ligaments to cushion, anchor, and support your teeth at the roots.

What this means is that your gums are important to keeping your teeth in your mouth. If you lose gum tissue to inflammation or recession, your teeth can start to loosen.

Your Gums Don’t Grow Back

Gum tissue cannot repair itself. That is, not if you lose much of it. A cut in your gums will heal, but receded gums won’t come back.

Periodontitis (Gum Disease) Can Affect Your Overall Health

Gum disease has been connected with problems like Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, and heart disease. There’s no denying the fact that unhealthy gums negatively impact your health. A healthy mouth means a healthy body.

They’re an Essential Part of a Gorgeous Smile

Why are long teeth so undesirable? Well, the teeth themselves aren’t the issue. It’s a lack of gum tissue covering tooth roots that makes them look long and bare. Put simply, you need lots of healthy gums to keep your smile looking youthful and beautiful.

You’ve got many reasons to take good care of your entire smile!

I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!
