“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!” “Everything is OK, nothing hurts!” We hear this daily. Unfortunately, in dentistry if it hurts, it is usually too late! If a tooth hurts, it means the nerve might be infected and you need a root canal. If the gums hurt, you usually have an advanced case of periodontal disease and in danger of losing your teeth and they still might not hurt. If your jaw is hurting you might have symptoms of TMJ, which could lead to debilitating pain and discomfort.
Leaving your smile at risk of decay, and gum disease and TMD, has a serious effect on oral and overall wellbeing, but prevention is easy. Your Coral Gables dentist, Dr. Bushdid, emphasizes the need for regular preventive care in this week’s blog post.

You have three frenums, or bits of soft tissue, in your mouth: one between your upper lip and gums, one between your lower lip and gums, and another beneath your tongue. Sometimes, there is too much tissue or the frenum is too tight and it restricts proper eating, affects speech, and causes issues with proper dentition, or the alignment of the teeth. Children are especially vulnerable to the condition we call lip/tongue tie — but Dr. Jose A. Bushdid, the family dentist in Coral Gables, can help.
