12 Ways Regular Dental Care Can Improve Your Life Atlanta, GA
Family Photo

It is no secret that not everyone enjoys trips to the dentist. In fact, some people have a real fear or phobia of receiving dental care. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we strive to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible, but we still have patients that do not see us as often as they should. There are some very valid reasons for routine dental visits, and many can be beneficial to your life. Here are 12 ways regular dental care may improve your appearance, health and overall quality of life.

1. Prevent Tooth Decay
From the time you get your first tooth at a few months old, bacteria are working to eat away at your teeth. Tooth decay can ruin the enamel and tooth structure, and it may lead to serious tooth infections. Routine dental visits can catch tooth decay before it causes too much damage to the tooth, protecting your smile.
2. Gum Health
The gun tissue is a vital part of your oral health. The gums support the teeth and need routine care to keep them healthy. Routine dental cleanings at least twice a year can brighten your smile, but are an important aspect of protecting gum health. When combined with daily oral hygiene, professional teeth cleanings can help prevent periodontal or gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss.
3. Whiter Smile
Routine dental cleanings are not only great for preventing gum disease, but they can also give you a whiter smile. The cleaning process can remove some stains and discoloration from your teeth to make your smile brighter. For even whiter teeth, you can opt for professional teeth whitening services from your dentist to bleach the color of your teeth several shades. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we offer in-office whitening with ZOOM! which can restore whiter teeth in less than an hour.
4. Avoid Serious Infections
Tooth infections and abscesses occur when bacteria reach the internal and live areas of a tooth. Not only are tooth infections painful, but they can put your health at risk. Oral infections can spread to other areas of the body. In severe cases, an infected tooth could cause sepsis. Regular visits to your dentist can catch decay and tooth damage that can lead to a painful, infected tooth. If a tooth is already infected, we offer root canal therapy at our dental center in Atlanta, GA.
5. Better Breath
Did you know that halitosis, or chronic bad breath, is often caused by dental problems? Tooth decay, tartar, gum disease and other oral health issues are the main sources of bad breath. Even brushing, mouthwash, mints and gum cannot hide bad breath caused by poor oral health. Regular checkups, cleanings and dental treatments can remove the bacteria that cause embarrassing bad breath.
6. Reduced Cardiovascular Risks
Those with periodontal disease, which affects an estimated 50% of adults over 30, have a higher risk of stroke and other cardiovascular problems. Routine dental visits and cleanings can help prevent gum disease and lower risks of cardiovascular disease. In many cases, gum disease can be reversed in the early stages with periodontal treatments.
7. Better Digestion
The first part of the digestive system is inside the mouth. Chewing your food thoroughly begins the breakdown of your food and puts less stress on your esophagus, stomach and intestinal system during the digestive process. When you have healthy teeth, you can eat the fibrous and chewy foods that are good for your digestive and overall health. Regular dental visits can protect your teeth for improved digestion and nutrient absorption.
8. Retain Your Facial Structure
Bone and tissue create the contours and angles of your face. The teeth and jawbone support the tissues of your lower face and play a significant role in your appearance. If teeth are lost, it can result in deterioration of the jawbone. The lower face can appear sunken, creating an older appearance. Retaining your teeth and bone density in your jaw can improve your facial structure. Even if you lose teeth, dental implants can provide similar bone stimulation as natural teeth to retain your facial structure.
9. Proper Speech
Teeth are crucial for making certain sounds and proper speech. When front teeth are lost, it can change the way you speak. Lisps and irregular sounds are common when individuals lose their teeth. Regular visits to your dentist can prevent tooth loss that can affect your speech. If you already have lost teeth that are impacting your speech, there are many different options for restoring lost teeth and improving your speech. Some restorative dentistry options we offer at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta include:

  • Partial dentures
  • Dental bridges
  • Complete dentures
  • Single dental implants
  • Implant-supported dentures
  • All-on-4 dental implants
10. Maintain a More Youthful Appearance
When your teeth are dull or you have missing teeth, it can create an older appearance. When you visit your dental team routinely, you can maintain your teeth for a more youthful smile and face. Our dental professionals can help you keep or replace your natural teeth to support your facial structure. We also offer cosmetic dentistry to rejuvenate the appearance of your smile, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding.
11. Prevent Tooth Loss
The majority of people over the age of 50 have lost at least one tooth – many people lose all their teeth by the time they reach 60 years of age. Regular dental care combined with good personal oral hygiene can prevent most types of tooth loss. Our dental team recommends preventive dental care at least twice a year to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We can also replace lost teeth if needed with a wide variety of restorative options, giving you back your complete smile.
12. Improve Your Overall Health
Oral and overall health are intricately linked. Your oral health can impact your digestive, cardiovascular and other systems in the body. Caring for your teeth can make a major impact on your mental and physical health, which is why it should be a top priority in your wellness routine. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we accept most dental insurance plans and financing is available to make sure your dental care is affordable.

Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of Atlanta

4.9 / 5

Based on 136 reviews

Dr. Zelby was recommended to me by both my dentist and periodontist. I could not agree more. the kindness, caring, and professionalism that I experienced at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta is above and beyond. I highly recommend Dr. Zelby, his assistants, and the staff. I couldn't be happier with my new teeth and wish I had done this years ago! five stars to you guys

Catherine W.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Meghan D.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
