Dentist in Kennesaw offers tips and suggestions for patients to maintain a healthy mouth
By Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley
Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of Kennesaw, GA are a team of dentists in the area who want to ensure patients have healthy smiles. They hear questions a lot from their patients about tips and suggestions for maintaining a beautiful mouth free from disease and decay. Patients in the community are welcome to contact the staff at 32 Dental to learn about the ways in which they can achieve and maintain a healthy smile:
Brush your teeth after every meal. One way to ensure that the teeth stay clean is to brush the teeth each time after you eat or drink. At sometimes, this may not always be possible, so brushing morning and night is often well-received. Brushing can keep plaque and tartar from building up on the natural tooth enamel, which is one culprit of conditions such as tooth decay that can develop.
Floss after every meal. Flossing helps remove food particles from between the teeth that can become lodged and may break down into sugars that can contribute to cavities. If not possible, patients should try to floss at least once a day, typically in the evening.
Use today’s technology to your advantage. Today, there are many amazing technologies that can make caring for the smile easier. Our cellular telephones can be used to time ourselves and our children to ensure that everyone is brushing for at least two full minutes. Patients can also take advantage of electric toothbrushes which can sometimes make it easier to get into all the nooks and crannies of the smile.
Eat an appropriate diet. Nutrition also plays a part in keeping the smile healthy. Patients should make sure they are eating a wide variety of foods, including more fruits and vegetables. Sugary products such as candies and sodas can contribute to cavities and may have a negative impact on the smile.
Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups. The American Dental Association recommends patients of all ages to visit the dentist on a routine basis, specifically every six months for a cleaning and examination. This can help in maintaining a healthy smile and ensuring that there are no problems developing. If so, they can be caught early by a dental professional and addressed as soon as possible. This includes problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay.
See the dentist when problems arise. The earlier a problem is addressed, the easier it is to treat. Additionally, patients can save money if they treat problems in their earlier stages. For example, small cavities may be treated before they cause pain. Otherwise, they may grow larger and may cause patients to experience sensitivity with sweets. Furthermore, they can become deep enough that they cause an infection on the dental pulp inside of the tooth and cause a severe toothache. This toothache may only be treated at this point with root canal therapy or permanent extraction of the tooth itself. By visiting the dentist when issues are first presenting themselves, patients can be more proactive about their overall oral health and wellness.
How can I ensure I’m working with a dentist I can trust?
It is always a good idea to look into the credentials of your dentist to make sure they have the experience they need to treat you appropriately. Additionally, dentists who have flexible schedules that allow you to get in for your appointments in a timely manner are also advantageous for busy families. At 32 Dental, we provide a wide selection of services for patients to choose from other than just general routine dental work. We also offer cosmetic and restorative procedures for our patients, and we also keep appointments open each day to accommodate any dental emergencies that may arise for new or existing patients.

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!
