The Best Adult Dentist In Plantation, Fl

It’s easy to ignore, but a little bit of tooth decay or gum disease always leads to a little bit more. The outcome of these untreated problems inevitably becomes pain, emergency treatment, and tooth loss. So why does this happen?

It's An Infection.

Millions of bacteria swarm our mouths, many of them harmless and even beneficial. But a few bad characters wreak havoc on the hard and soft tissues of the mouth in many people. Like all living creatures, they need an energy source. Sugars are their snack of choice, and they use simple carbohydrates from our diet to manufacture energy.

Like all living creatures making energy, they also produce waste. These acidic wastes deposited on the teeth erode the hard enamel surfaces and form holes, known as cavities.

Some bacteria produce a toxic waste that causes bleeding gums and destruction of the bone around the teeth. In fact, this is the leading reason people lose their teeth and end up with dentures. It’s all part of an infection.

Most infections can be treated with antibiotics, but mouth bacteria require a different approach. Regular checkups help us identify new cavities, and periodic cleanings remove mineralized deposits that harbor millions of harmful bacteria. Fluoride varnishes harden tooth surfaces, and high-risk patients benefit from customized approaches with our team.

The complex interaction of infection and inflammation extends beyond the gums and mouth. In fact, research continues to uncover the many ways that problems in our mouths can reach into critical areas of our bodies. For example, mouth bacteria penetrate through bleeding gums and enter the bloodstream. Like a river, blood flow carries the bacteria to the small vessels of the heart and brain. Here they can damage the intricate vessel lining, leading to blockage of the vessel. Heart attack or stroke results..all because of bleeding gums.

The same process deposits mouth bacteria and their toxins in other areas of our bodies and appears related to arthritis, diabetes, and some cancers. In the last few years, we’ve learned that a healthy mouth can affect our overall health in many ways.

A Few Tips For Maintaining A Healthy Mouth

A Few Tips For Maintaining A Healthy Mouth

Brush and floss twice a day: Consistent daily habits remove sticky, bacterial plaque that starts the cascading events that lead to decay, gum disease, and other health problems. If you don't like to floss, consider toothpicks, brushes or the magic of a Waterpik.

Brush for at least two minutes each time: It sounds like a long time, but it makes a difference. Consider an electric toothbrush with a built-in timer, or setting a timer on your phone.

Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly: Bacteria linger on your toothbrush, finding their way back into the mouth at the next use.

Keep sugary drinks, starchy foods, and desserts to a minimum: Foods high in starch and sugar provide fuel to bacteria. Despite diligent brushing and flossing, sugary and starchy foods serve as catalysts for decay. Be moderate, and avoid snacking between meals.

Drink water after eating a meal: Swishing with water helps clean larger deposits of food from your teeth. Plus, we all could use a little more hydration!

Don't give bottles of sugary drinks or milk before bedtime

Get cavities treated immediately: Cavities rarely hurt until they reach a critical stage. And don't forget: a little bit of tooth decay eventually becomes a little bit more.

See a dentist every six months: The risk of critical dental problems diminishes significantly if you're visiting us twice a year. Patients that fit preventive dentistry into their budget typically enjoy fewer dental expenditures over time than those who wait for emergencies to develop.

What a wonderful group of professionals! The office is fully equipped with advance technology. The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, very kind and friendly. It made me felt comfortable and at ease. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Karen is super kind and caring, explaining during the the cleaning process - super gentle and pain free. . Dr. Rizvi is really friendly. She took her time to exam, review and explaining in detail when going through 3D with me and just in time a treatment list in detail along with what insurance covers/not cover. They orchestrate the procedure really well - making the visit an extra outstanding and special. Excellent team of doctor and staff. I just recommended my family member for their upcoming visit.

Wonderful group of professionals! The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, and friendly. I felt more comfortable than I ever have at a dentist’s office. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Lisandra and Karen made me feel at ease as they examined and cleaned my teeth. They did such a thorough and amazing job cleaning my teeth and taking care of my gums during each visit. I’m 9 months pregnant and the doctor and staff did an outstanding job making each cleaning and procedure as pain and stress free as possible. They were extremely knowledgeable on what they could or couldn’t do as well. The office manager Roxie made sure to explain in detail what our insurance covered (after finding out my husbands insurance didn’t cover the first cleaning, she still graciously waived the fee). Roxie was very informative when explaining the breakdown of costs of each visit, and other options that we could consider when coordinating our treatments to meet our financial and medical needs. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had a cleaning this morning with Giselle. She is a great, and I think our Spanglish works well to communicate with each other. Haha. I had a wonderful experience, and I also thought, my kid will like their cleaning here because of My Dentist for Life’s new tool. Great technology, no pain and quick!
