Smile more with great dental care from your dentist near Marietta

For ages, ancestors have passed down certain tidbits of information intended to help us live better lives. One example is “you are what you eat.” Still used today, this phrase is the motto of many people who find dietary habits an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. More often than not, we associate what we eat with healthy bodies. The foods and beverages we consume also impact our smile. Part of the standard of dental care we provide to our patients from Marietta and surrounding areas is to assess teeth and gums, and discuss ways to handle the risk factors that affect oral health, including dietary habits.

There is significant evidence that connects the foods we eat with our oral health, which is reason to pay close attention to the impact of diet on teeth. Each person must take daily steps to prevent the development of cavities, and keep gums healthy and your breath fresh. Your dentist and hygienist see you approximately every six months. During these routine visits, we evaluate the teeth and gums for the presence of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. We provide professional teeth cleaning, and education on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums between dental check-ups. It is the home care that will promote optimal oral health.

When we make connections between our teeth and food, there are two types that tend to come to mind: milk, to keep teeth strong and white, and sugar, which should be avoided for the prevention of cavities. Milk is a natural assumption for healthy teeth because it contains calcium. This means that milk should be extremely good for our teeth, right? Not exactly.

First, we’ll take a look at sugar. This natural substance is most commonly associated with cavities. Sugar, however, does not directly cause tooth damage. Rather, it is an indirect cause. The bacteria that naturally live in the mouth feed on sugar, and then produce acid waste that eats away healthy tooth structure. Thus, minimizing sugary treats aids in the prevention of cavities.

Foods such as milk, cheese, nuts, and healthy protein do indeed build strong bones and teeth. When including milk as a regular part of the diet, however, it is important to keep in mind that there are natural sugars in milk. Of course, the type of sugar in milk may not be as harmful to teeth as the type of sugar in a soda. Still, brushing teeth, especially children’s teeth, after the consumption of milk, washes away sugar residue and reduces the food source for harmful bacteria. Brushing teeth to remove sugars is especially important before bed.

The foods we eat are fuel for our bodies, affecting everything from our level of energy to the state of our teeth and gums. The professional team at Thirty-Two Dental is here to help you enjoy your healthiest smile through ongoing dental care.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
