What are your resolutions for 2017? Current research suggests there is a strong link between your oral and overall health. To improve the way you look and feel in the new year, how about starting out with a visit to the dentist in Coral Gables? Dr. Jose A. Bushdid and the team at Bushdid Smiles takes a comprehensive, whole-body approach to help you enjoy a long lasting smile and better overall health for life.
Complete Health Dentistry at Bushdid Smiles
During your initial exam, Dr. Bushdid will exam not just your teeth and gums, but will take a close look at the surrounding systems. By studying the ways in which your TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint), neck, posture, teeth and gums are connected, Dr. Bushdid is able to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that will allow you to achieve optimum health and wellness.
Preventive Care: The Foundation of Healthy Smiles
When you skip flossing or just do a quick once-over with the toothbrush at night, the ramifications far exceed bad breath or staining. Insufficient oral hygiene puts you at a far greater risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Both conditions take a toll on an otherwise healthy body. People who have gum disease, for example, are also more likely to report the high blood glucose levels associated with uncontrolled diabetes.
Once tooth decay reaches the interior of the tooth (its pulp), it can abscess and cause infection to spread to other areas of the body. Decay also leads to missing teeth, which can cause serious psychological effects (like low self-confidence) and even lead to issues with speech and nutrition.
Dr. Bushdid and his team are equipped to catch the early warning signs of serious problems like decay, failing dental work, and even oral cancer. They will always perform thorough examinations at your routine visits to be sure these potential issues do not go untreated. Early detection is absolutely crucial for providing the most conservative treatment plans with the most successful outcomes.
Where Cosmetic Dentistry Fits In
Once your mouth is healthy, you will also want it to be beautiful. Having a beautiful smile will make you more confident! Furthermore, teeth that are in their optimal position are easier to brush and floss thus leading to better oral hygiene. Porcelain veneers, Invisalign, KoR Teeth whitening, and other aesthetic services are available at Bushdid Smiles.
