East Cobb and Marietta Implant Dentist Launches New Website

MARIETTA, GA--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Morton General and Implant Dentistry in Marietta, GA has announced the launch of the practice's new website, The new website is designed to educate Marietta and East Cobb dental patients about dental hygiene and services available at the practice. These services include general dentistry and periodontics, along with teeth implants, porcelain veneers, dental bridge, and teeth bleaching. The website was redesigned to include interactive and educational tools to help patients make informed choices about their dental health. New features include instructional videos, The Smile Gallery, a new patient center, and a dental blog updated by the dentist.

Dr. Clifford J. Morton, a Marietta implant dentist with Morton General and Implant Dentistry, announced the launch of his practice's new website, The practice offers general dentistry and implant dentistry, with a focus on periodontics and maxillofacial surgery.

"The new website is a tremendous asset to our practice," said Dr. Morton. "The educational resources now available to patients complement our mission to keep Marietta and East Cobb patients educated about the latest advancements in dental hygiene. For example, advancements in sedation dentistry can safely manage a patient's anxiety about visiting the dentist."

Sedation dentistry uses sedatives to safely relax patients, reducing anxiety. This is different from anesthesia, as patients under sedation are still alert and can respond to questions from Dr. Morton. Patients can learn more about sedation dentistry on the website under "Our Services." This section also includes information on cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, dental implants and periodontics.

Through the "Patient Education" portion of the website, individuals can learn more about how regular cleanings can prevent everything from bad breath to gum disease on the website.

"Many patients don't realize how important routine dental care really is until a serious dental problem develops," said Dr. Morton. "In many cases, daily brushing and flossing, along with annual cleanings, could have prevented these issues."

The website's 3D instructional videos explain the importance of routine care for preventing tooth decay and periodontal disease. Other videos help explain dental procedures such as implants, scaling, and installing a dental bridge for missing teeth.

"As an implant dentist, I am excited to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams," said Dr. Morton. "In many cases, a missing, chipped or cracked tooth can make patients feel insecure and lose confidence, which affects everything from their job performance to personal life. The website is a wonderful resource for patients to learn more about the process of dental implants, and view the 'Smile Gallery' for before and after transformation photos."

The Smile Gallery contains before and after photos of patient transformations using bonding, veneers, crowns, teeth implants, invisalign and bridgework. Prospective patients can also read testimonials from patients Dr. Morton has helped.

"I know many patients have anxiety about visiting the dentist," said Dr. Morton. "Hearing first hand-about dental work from testimonials, and seeing the results from the Smile Gallery on our website will hopefully ease anxiety and ensure our patients feel confident in their dental treatment decision."
