Our dedicated team is here to ensure you receive the best care possible in the Atlanta area.

What does it mean to be accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Accreditation in cosmetic dentistry is a prestigious achievement that involves passing a rigorous series of steps, such as a comprehensive written exam, successful documentation of cosmetic treatment plans with real patients, and a challenging oral examination conducted by the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Gaylor is one of only six dentists in Georgia to have earned this esteemed distinction, showcasing her exceptional clinical expertise and artistic talent.

How can you help me improve the way my smile looks?

Absolutely! Invisalign® Clear Braces is an alternative orthodontic treatment that uses nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually improve dental alignment, replacing the need for traditional bracket-and-wire braces. This discreet option allows patients to maintain a natural appearance while achieving their desired smile transformation. To determine if you're a suitable candidate for this innovative service, feel free to reach out to our team. We're here to assist you!

I want a straighter smile, but I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?

Yes, there is. Invisalign® uses subtle plastic aligners to gradually improve dental alignment instead of the traditional bracket-and-wire model. This allows patients to maintain a natural appearance throughout the treatment process. To see if you’re a good candidate for this transformative service, don’t hesitate to contact us in Atlanta.

Is it true that a dentist can help treat sleep apnea?

Yes, if they have the proper training. Oral appliance therapy is swiftly becoming an excellent alternative to traditional CPAP use for patients with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), eliminating bulky equipment and uncomfortably loud noises from the treatment equation altogether – and who knows how to design better oral appliances than an experienced dentist like Dr. Gaylor? If you have a diagnosis in-hand, don’t hesitate to contact our dental office for further treatment.

What is the best way to replace missing teeth?

In today’s modern landscape, we consider dental implants to be the superior choice for healthy, long-lasting tooth replacement. This is because they replicate every part of the natural structure faithfully, including the root that’s well-hidden beneath the jawbone. This helps maintain the integrity of your facial appearance and prevents tissue deterioration over time. Dr. Gaylor pairs her beautiful, customized dental restorations with surgical treatment from outstanding specialists in the Atlanta area to ensure that your newly replenished smile with modern implants is truly exceptional.

My gums regularly bleed when I brush and floss. Should I be worried?

The most common explanation for bleeding gum tissue is the presence of gum (periodontal) disease, which is a potentially serious infection that can grow to threaten your healthy teeth and overall wellbeing. At Cosmetic Dentistry of Atlanta, our team will screen for gum disease during every routine checkup and provide dedicated therapy as needed to remove damaging bacteria and reinvigorate the oral tissue right away.

Do you see dental emergencies?

Dr. Gaylor understands how difficult it can be to manage severe dental pain or a badly injured tooth without relief in sight. She will do everything in her power to accommodate patients in need of dental emergency care as soon as possible – please don’t hesitate to contact us!
