Malnutrition May Cause You To Consider A Complete Dental Restoration

Woman Smile While in Dentist Chair Buford, GADid you know that the week of September 26-30 is Malnutrition Awareness Week in the United States?

You may be wondering why Buford Family Dental is concerned about malnutrition. We’re a dental office, right? However, there is a deep connection between the health of your teeth and the health of your body.

Did you know that an inability to chew and eat the proper foods that your body needs could cause you to become malnourished? According to the Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research,

 “Malnutrition affects the oral health and a poor oral health in turn, may lead to malnutrition. This interdependent relationship sees good nutritional health, thus promoting good oral health and vice versa.”

Buford Family Dental is keenly aware of this “interdependent relationship.” For this reason, we offer complete dental restorations for patients who are missing all or most of their teeth. This is not only devastating to your appearance, but it can deeply impact your ability to consume a healthy diet. Your teeth directly impact what you are or are not able to eat. Did you know that foods that are often less nutrient are often easier to consume? For this reason, foods such as potatoes, breads and other soft foods are the food of choice if you’re missing teeth.

If you have one or many of your teeth missing, contact Buford Family Dental today. We offer complete dental restorations for all our patients. We have dentures, dental implants and dental bridges that can offer options for replacing missing teeth and restoring dental health and your confident smile.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

Marshall W.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
