Frequently Asked Questions

Do you see children?

Of course! Dr. Bushdid enjoys welcoming patients of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers to grandparents. Dr. Bushdid is very passionate about the proper development of the head and neck as there are many symptoms and diseases that can be prevented if caught early on. We are big advocates of Phase I Orthodontic care and offer traditional orthodontic care as well, when needed. It’s never too early or too late to start working toward a healthier, happier smile.

I’m experiencing pain in my jaw, shoulders, and/or head. Can you help me?

Possibly. You may be suffering from a misalignment in your jaw and neck that’s causing TMJ disorder. In this case, your symptoms will only get worse the longer they’re left untreated. Please contact our Coral Gables office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bushdid. We can closely inspect your mouth, jaw and neck for telltale signs of damage or stress, as well as create a specialized plan for treatment that can provide you with the relief from pain you’ve been searching for.

Will I have to see a separate professional to have my implants placed?

Not at all! Dr. Bushdid and his team of specialists have the skills and experience to handle every step of your implant dentistry procedure personally, which means that you save valuable time and are able to enjoy the familiar comfort and support of our office and staff every time you come in for treatment.

What’s the best cosmetic option for my smile?

Choosing the best treatment for your unique set of teeth is a very important choice. Each service offers its own valuable benefits, timeframe, and realm of results. That’s why it’s so important to Dr. Bushdid that patients sit down with him for a smile design evaluation. During this time, we can discuss your wants and expectations, as well as any celebrity or model’s particular smile that you’re looking to emulate. We’ll also take photos and impressions so that we have all the information needed to move forward. During this time, you and Dr. Bushdid can discuss the cosmetic procedures available and choose the one that best works for you.
