There’s nothing general about general dentistry. At Bushdid Smiles, Coral Gables dentist Dr. Jose A. Bushdid offers everything necessary for a healthy, attractive and lasting smile. From pediatric needs to complex restorative procedures for adults, Dr. Bushdid and his team make great oral health and overall well-being their priority.
A check-up is the foundation of dental care
Dr. Bushdid and his professional team like to see their patients at least every 6 months for a complete oral exam and hygienic teeth cleaning. A comprehensive exam spots problems and potential problems before they become complex, harder to treat and detrimental to systemic health. Cleanings, often called dental prophylaxis, work in concert with home hygiene to remove bacteria-laden plaque and tartar from tooth surfaces, interdental spaces and at the gum line.
For instance, when Dr. Bushdid evaluates the health of gums, he probes gum pockets and looks for signs of redness, recession, bleeding and infection. If necessary, he can begin periodontal therapy to deep clean tooth and root surfaces via hand scaling and inventive ultrasonic cleaning, too. This procedure restores gum tissue, limiting damage to bone structure and serious health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia and hypertension.
In addition, during a check-up, your Coral Gables general dentist:
- visually inspects for signs of tooth decay
- performs orthodontic evaluation for children and adults
- performs airway assessment on children
- assesses for signs of oral cancer
- checks bite alignment and its possible impact on jaw (mandibular) and neck (cervical) musculature ( an origin of headaches and other head/neck/spine maladies)
- evaluates for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder
- checks the condition of existing restorations such as implants, fillings, crowns, bridgework and dentures and also those bothersome wisdom teeth in adolescents
Dr. Bushdid uses Dexis digital x-rays when necessary for precise images of teeth, roots and bone structure. This instrument and others create images instantly and deliver half the radiation of conventional x-ray systems.
With his findings, Dr. Bushdid creates a treatment plan that incorporates immediate and long-term needs and the patient’s aesthetic goals. For example, regarding pediatric patients, Dr. Bushdid believes that early intervention with attention to airway obstruction, orthodontic (teeth alignment) issues and orthopedic problems (jaw development) makes treatment with braces easier or even can even eliminate it completely.
