Make Dental Visits a Priority

Smiling Dental Patient Marietta GA

What do the following have in common?

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Kidney failure
  • Respiratory infection
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Pregnancy complications and loss

Believe it or not, all of these serious health conditions can be directly affected by your oral health.

The health of your mouth is a direct indication of the health of the rest of your body. Your entire body is one complex machine that runs off the same system of nerves and arteries. Inside your body is one huge blood stream that runs from your brain, to your fingers, all the way to your little toes – and then back again. While this seems like elementary biology, the truth is that an infection in one part of your body can easily travel to other areas of the body.

The mouth is home to millions of bacteria, some of which are good and some of which are harmful. Decay, gum disease, and infections inside the mouth can easily pass into the blood stream and pass into other vital organs. Understanding the connection between your oral health and your overall health is extremely important.

It is also why visiting your dentist on a regular basis should be a priority. Your dentist does more than just clean your teeth. Regular dental visits include scraping away bacteria-laden plaque before they cause infection, examining your mouth, and looking for any suspicious signs of concern. Certain illnesses like diabetes and cancer often present their first signs inside the mouth – where most people would never think to look. Dentists are well known for spotting signs of serious concern long before other warning signs or symptoms become evident to patients. Your dentist offers much more than just clean teeth – your dentist offers life-saving intervention.

The Dental Care Center at Kennestone wants to partner with you. We encourage you to make dental visits a priority. Call today to schedule an appointment.

  • 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!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
