New Year, New Approach to a Healthier Lifestyle

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

New Year’s resolutions usually consist of setting goals about ‘being active’, ‘eating healthier’ or ‘loosing 10 pounds’, but the real resolution is where to start – we suggest starting with Juice Plus.  It’s an all-natural supplement filled with whole fruits and veggies.  Incorporating JP into your diet is a quick, easy way to start!

I’m Dreaming of a White……Set of Teeth!

We just got a new whitening product in called Tres White! The best part about it is that ortho patients can use it even before their braces are taken off!  Tres White is quick, easy and comes in a variety of strengths (even stronger than your supermarket bleach).

All About Extractions!

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

Extractions: Atlanta Smiles and Wellness has a conservative approach and we will do what we can to help repair your original teeth; however, there are situations when the tooth cannot be restored or is causing overcrowding.  When a tooth is removed, it is referred to as an tooth extraction.

  • Simple Extraction – the tooth is fully erupted and exposed in mouth and local anesthetic is applied. Extractions are also common when referring to wisdom teeth.

Scaling & Root Planning – Deep Cleaning: Periodontal treatment should be done with ease and as a conservative, cost-effective solution.  Deep cleanings are also knows as scaling and root planning. ‘Scaling’ is the removal of dental tartar from teeth above and below the gum line; ‘Root planning’ involves the smoothing of the root surfaces to remove bacterial toxins.  This procedure is typically broken up into two appointments; one for the right side of the mouth (upper and lower) and one for the left.  These procedures are performed by our gentle and talented hygienists, keeping your comfort in mind.

TMJ Therapy: Do you ever wake up with a pounding migraine or sore jaw?  This may be linked to TMJ, teeth grinding, clenching or snoring habits.  Molars can face up to 270 lbs of force! Our Atlanta cosmetic dentists offer a few options to our patients to ease or eliminate the pain with an oral appliance, as opposed to uncomfortable headgear or nasal inserts.  Depending on the diagnosis, treatment options may include an Occlusal Guard, a Snore Guard or NTI.  Each is custom-fitted to the patient’s mouth and their specific needs.

How to De-Stress this Holiday Season

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

This time of year brings extra stress into our everyday lives.  As your dentist, we unfortunately can’t help you with your in-law’s gifts; however, we can suggest a few easy ways to help reduce your stress level.

1.        Exercise – This is usually the first item to get cut off the list during the holiday hustle and bustle.  Exercising has unbelievable benefits, including stress relief, boost of self-confidence and energy and melting off those extra holiday calories.

2.       Get a nite-guard – Most people take their worries with them to bed at night.  To avoid clenching or grinding your teeth, have your dentist customize a nite-guard for you.  These devices help eliminate the stress on your jaw muscles, allowing for a pleasant morning, headache-free.

3.       Relax – Easier said than done, but be sure to take time for yourself this holiday season.

Sea Turtle Gets Braces?!

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

In Juno Beach, Florida, an orthodontist put braces on a sea turtle to help heal its shell that had been gouged by a boat propeller. The turtle’s shell healed and it was straighter than ever 🙂 Who knew that orthodontia could benefit sea turtles?
