4 Simple Ways to Keep a Cavity-Free Mouth Carrollton, GA
Female Dental Patient

At the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade, we believe that a happy smile is a healthy smile. Regardless of your age, there are a number of things you can do to keep your teeth and reduce your risk of tooth decay. For the sake of your family’s oral health, try to implement the following four steps:

#1 Eat a Tooth-Friendly Diet
Avoiding cavities is not as simple as avoiding candy. Along with sugary and sticky foods, try to minimize carbohydrates. Decay-causing bacteria in the mouth like to feed on these substances! Be mindful of acidic foods and drinks as well, as these can erode your tooth enamel and leave your smile more vulnerable to decay. Instead, increase your intake of apples, leafy greens, celery and carrots!

#2 Brush, Floss, Rinse, Repeat
Routine brushing at least twice a day is non-negotiable for a healthy smile. In fact, you should be brushing with a soft-bristled brush for two minutes each session. Follow your tooth brushing efforts with flossing and mouth rinse to fully remove lingering bacteria, plaque and food debris. To up your oral hygiene game, you may also ask your dentist about an electric toothbrush or water flosser.

#3 Consider Dental Sealants
Children often get dental sealants to protect the hard-to-reach teeth in the back of their mouths. However, adults can benefit from dental sealants too – especially if you are at a higher risk for cavities. Getting sealants is easy. They are simply a layer of plastic-like material that is painted on the top surfaces of your teeth to “seal out” harmful acids and sugars that cause decay.

#4 Visit Your Dentist Twice a Year
Even patients with impeccable dental hygiene habits need to see their dentist twice a year. A professional dental cleaning can remove hardened plaque that your toothbrush can’t. This routine visit also include x-rays and a careful evaluation of your mouth to detect dental problems at their earliest and most treatable stage.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
