3 Things Your Crooked Teeth May Say About Your Birth & Childhood

September 13, 2017

Mother holding upset babyResearch out of the University of Washington indicates that facial asymmetries, crooked teeth, and other bit alignment issues may be important indicators of past and future mental and physical health concerns. These studies are still in their early stages, but as the research continues, there seems to be mounting evidence in support of this theory. While early orthodontic treatments may not undo a stressful childhood or prevent future struggles with chronic illness, they can relieve undue strain on the smile and improve oral health. Keep reading to learn more about facial asymmetry and how it may help dentists and medical professionals better understand how to work with patients, especially nonverbal infants and children, during dental care.

Hey, Marietta: Elite Dentistry Offers Teeth Whitening Options!

September 8, 2015

woman with a brilliant white smile thanks to marietta teeth whitening optionsIt’s Tuesday morning and you’ve got a big meeting — you’re dressed in your most professional attire and, hey, you look fantastic. For one extra boost of confidence you smile at yourself in the mirror and… ouch. Those dingy teeth have seen whiter days.

It’s a natural process of aging — enjoying the little things in life, like coffee, red wine and other dark colored foods and beverages slowly changes the shade of teeth. Before you realize what’s happened, your pearly whites resemble something along the lines of last night’s dishwater.

Fortunately, you do have whitening options with cosmetic dentistry. That sounds fancy, but it’s just the term we use for improving the aesthetics of your smile, rather than the function (although sometimes cosmetic dentistry can improve both). At Elite Dentistry, our passionate team offers two teeth whitening options: in-office Zoom! Whitening treatments or a take-home whitening kit. Both are excellent solutions for whiter teeth — read on to see which might be right for you.

Everything You Want To Know About Dental Implants with Marietta Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Clemans

August 6, 2015

Dental implants restore your smile.When teeth go missing, it’s not good. When there are open spaces in your mouth, they can become breeding grounds for bacteria. A bacteria breeding ground is something you don’t want. Most patients opt for not receiving treatment for missing teeth based on several factors including cost and comfort. While dental implants may not be the cheapest route to take, it’s the safest and longest lasting. Any area that has missing teeth needs to be addressed. It just isn’t smart to not receive treatment for any missing teeth. If you have missing teeth and want to do something about it, you should look into dental implant therapy. There are a lot of people who suffer from missing teeth, but the good news is there’s a great treatment option and it comes in the form of dental implants. Dr. Clemans and her staff in Marietta, GA want you to relieve yourself from the discomfort of missing teeth and start enjoying life with a beautiful and healthy smile. Marietta dental implants are here for you!

Your Marietta Dentist for Great Oral Health

July 23, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-103583424Did you know more people in the United States suffer from gum disease than diabetes or heart disease? Nearly 80% of adults in the United States suffer from some level of periodontal disease, and while gum disease might not seem like an epidemic-worthy illness, patients with gum disease are at a higher risk for stroke, blood clots, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, and many other systemic illnesses. If maintaining excellent oral health isn’t one of your top priorities, it should be. Call Elite Dentistry, the Marietta, GA practice of Dr. Ruth Clemans, to schedule your dental checkup and cleaning today.

Elite Dentistry – Best Marietta General Dentist

Dr. Ruth Clemans has been exceeding the expectations of dental patients in the Marietta area since 1987. In the past nearly 30 years, patients have come to trust Dr. Clemans and the Elite Dentistry team to provide them with the recommendations and guidance they need to achieve their oral health care goals, prevent dental health issues, and maintain beautiful, natural smiles for life. It all starts with twice annual checkups and teeth cleanings at our fantastic dental practice where we offer elite service without the elite prices.

Your Marietta Dentist for Great Oral Health

In the past, dentists focused on treating teeth when they could and replacing teeth when they couldn’t. Then, America entered the First World War, and things began to change. Young soldiers were most frequently cited on their medial reports for having poor oral hygiene. Dental decay was declared an epidemic. Dentists at the time decided things had to change. That’s when dentistry began to shift its perspective to the modern focus on preventive and restorative dental care. Rather than treat problems after they occur, we encourage patients to schedule visits every six months so we can thoroughly clean and examine their teeth in order to prevent dental concerns from advancing. These regular visits in addition to routine at-home hygiene, brushing twice a day and flossing at least once, help to prevent the majority of oral health concerns.

When preventive measures fail, your Marietta dentist is much less likely to remove your teeth the dentists in the past. Elite Dentistry is a practice focused on comprehensive and conservative restorative dental treatment. That means we provide the treatment or therapy that will benefit your full smile for years to come (comprehensive) and we always try to maintain as much of your dental structure as possible (conservative). Restorative care strives to return your smile to its natural look and feel.

Call Your Dentist, 30062

We want every patient we see to have the best possible smile, and at Elite Dental, that starts with preventive care visits every 6 months. Call to schedule your next dental exam today. We welcomes patients from local communities including Roswell, Sandy Plains, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, and Kennesaw.

Misaligned Smile? Straighten It With Invisalign

June 19, 2015

clear teeth straighteningDo you ever wonder what it would be like to have a smile that was perfectly straight with no crooked teeth or any other imperfections? You can achieve this same type of smile when you opt for the most revolutionary straightening treatment to hit the dental and orthodontic industry in years — Invisalign. This technology truly is one of a kind. What makes Invisalign so sought after by patients? Well, to start, it’s the fact that treatment is “invisible” and nobody will know you’re straightening your teeth. How cool is that? You can’t get that type of treatment with traditional braces. Metal brackets once were the way of the future, now there’s less pain and treatment time when you use Invisalign. At our office in Marietta, GA, Dr. Ruth Clemans and her staff will make sure you’re informed about all the great benefits Invisalign has to offer. Want to learn more? Keep reading!

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry with Marietta Dental Implants

March 19, 2015

78769905Thanks to continuing advancements in the realm of restorative dentistry, it is now possible to replace missing teeth in a way that is closer to nature than ever before. With dental implants in Marietta, GA, your restorative and cosmetic specialist Dr. Ruth Clemans creates beautifully healthy and lasting smiles for patients who have lost their natural teeth.

Rejuvenate Your Smile & Your Oral Health

When you lose a tooth, the supportive jaw structure that once held it in place begins to deteriorate. Over time, more bone tissue is lost, ultimately leading to the loss of additional teeth and diminished facial contours. The jaw takes on a sunken appearance, often making edentulous patients appear much older than they actually are. While dentures and bridges are capable of replacing the crown portion of your missing teeth, only dental implants fully replace the root as well. With a dental implant in place, bone tissue in the jaw remains strong and healthy.

Another benefit of Marietta dental implants from Dr. Clemans is their immense versatility. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full arch of teeth in cases of edentulism. Custom restorations used to replace the crown portion of the teeth are carefully crafted to look and feel just like natural teeth, so you can smile and speak with complete confidence and comfort.

Speaking of speech, have you ever thought about how very critical your teeth are to the way you talk? Pronouncing the fricative consonant sounds j, l, t, n, x, d, z, s, th, sh, and ch is incredibly difficult for patients missing any their front teeth. With dental implants, speech returns to normal, resulting in a better quality of life overall.

Schedule Your Marietta Dental Implants Consultation

If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of dental implants and find out if you are a candidate for this procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule a consultation. We sincerely look forward to serving your every oral healthcare need.

Reclaim Your Smile’s Form and Function with Implant-Retained Dentures: Marietta Dental Implants

January 19, 2015

151545340The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that approximately 178 million American adults are missing at least one tooth. More than 35 million Americans are completely edentulous, or missing all of their teeth. Today’s advanced restorative dentistry solutions make it possible for these men and women to seek permanent tooth replacement with dental implants. At the Marietta, GA dental practice of Dr. Ruth Clemans, edentulous patients are invited to explore their restorative options, including dental implants and implant-retained dentures.

Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures

While traditional dentures are sufficient for many edentulous men and women, this removable prosthesis simply doesn’t offer the stability and natural appearance that many patients desire. Regular dentures can slip and cause discomfort, particularly if they do not fit the jaw and gums properly. This is where dental implants make such a dramatic difference.

A dental implant is a small metal post that is surgically placed within the bone of the jaw. It serves as a sturdy anchor for a prosthetic tooth or denture, holding the patient’s new teeth firmly and comfortably in place. A full arch of beautiful, natural-looking teeth is attached to the implants, allowing the patient to eat, speak, and smile with renewed confidence. Implant-retained dentures are a superior solution for many patients; an assessment in our office will help to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Dr. Clemans is always happy to discuss her patients’ restorative dentistry options in detail, developing a treatment plan that is customized to fulfill each individual’s unique needs.

Your Marietta Dental Implants Specialist

Your path toward a healthy, natural-looking smile begins with a consultation with Dr. Ruth Clemans. Contact our office today to schedule your visit with Dr. Clemans and our caring, experienced team. We genuinely look forward to serving your every oral health need, including total tooth replacement. Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Marietta, GA warmly welcomes patients from throughout the surrounding areas as well, including Kennesaw, Sandy Springs, Atlanta, Roswell, Chamblee, and beyond.
