Dentists in Marietta, GA discuss gum disease

Gum disease is a serious dental condition that many dentists educate their patients on extensively to help them understand how damaging it can be to smiles. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley in Marietta, Georgia are here to assist individuals in keeping their teeth and gums healthy for life.

At 32 Dental, we want our patients to understand the severity of damage gum disease can cause, which is why we educate patients of all ages of gum disease (or periodontal disease, as it is often called). Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley talk to patients to help them understand how poor oral hygiene can contribute to the development of gum disease in Marietta, Georgia area patients.

When teeth are not brushed and flossed regularly, plaque and tartar may form on the surfaces of the teeth and gums. This can result in the formation of bacteria and acids, which can eat away at tooth enamel. Bacteria can cause an infection, resulting in red, inflamed gum tissue. During this initial stage, known as gingivitis, patients can have an examination done at their dental office and receive treatment. Treatment for this early stage is often a thorough cleaning of all surfaces of the teeth and gums as well as antibiotics.

If gingivitis is caught early enough, it is reversible, but if not, it can form into the later stages of periodontal disease known as periodontitis. Periodontitis develops and the gum tissue begins to pull away from the teeth, resulting in pockets where more bacteria can grow. The bone of the jaw may begin to disintegrate, causing natural teeth to become loose. If this stage is ignored, patients may begin to lose their adult teeth—which can only be repaired using restorative treatments. However, patients must first address the condition and seek treatment to bring their smile back to health before seeking restorative services.

Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley want patients to understand the consequences of poor oral health, and can educate men and women on what to look for in the earlier stages of periodontal disease.

    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!
