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.

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.
