Patients in Acworth, GA and beyond learn how excellent oral health care can prevent gum disease

Forty-seven percent of adults over age 30 have periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That percentage increases to 70 percent among adults ages 65 and older. Anyone can develop gum disease throughout his or her life. Therefore, it is critical to understand the symptoms and risk factors of the disease. Fortunately, excellent oral health care can help prevent the disease and ensure the smile remains healthy and beautiful. Respected dentists Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley at 32 Dental are happy to educate patients in Acworth, GA and the surrounding areas about the importance of good oral hygiene.

Gum disease usually develops in the areas of your mouth that you may have neglected to brush or floss. As a result, bacteria build up forming a sticky film called plaque. The body responds to the bacteria with an inflammatory response. This can lead to swelling of the gums, which is a warning sign of gingivitis. Other symptoms include gum redness, bleeding when brushing or flossing, a receding gum line, bad breath, mouth sores, and loose teeth. Eventually, the inflammation can become more destructive. The tissues and bone that support the teeth begin to break down. This leads to gums pulling away from the teeth, leaving pockets where bacteria can grow. As you lose bone, the teeth become looser and eventually fall out.

Who is at risk of gum disease? Individuals who use tobacco products are pregnant, have a family history of the disease, have diabetes, grind or clench their teeth, and have high stress are at highest risk. Heart medications, antidepressants, and birth control can increase the risk of the disease. Therefore, it is important to tell our team about any medications you currently take. To reduce your risk of gum disease, we recommend avoiding or quitting smoking or chewing tobacco. For teeth grinding and clenching, we can provide mouth guards to wear at night. Prevention is critical to prevent plaque buildup and keep gum disease at bay. We recommend:
  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, or sometimes, after every meal
  • Cleaning between the teeth and gums by flossing before bedtime
  • Using an antiseptic mouth rinse after brushing your teeth in the morning and at night
  • Visiting 32 Dental at least twice a year for examinations and teeth cleanings
Is it time for your dental check-up? The 32 Dental team can develop a treatment plan that addresses your family history and lifestyle habits to ensure optimal oral and overall health. Schedule an appointment today by calling (770) 423-1132.

    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!
