Dental bonding and cosmetic contouring are procedures for repairing and reshaping teeth. Dental bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored resin material that is carefully applied to cracks, chips, and other problems to correct them. As the resin material dries, it bonds with the tooth, permanently fixing cracks and chips. Cosmetic contouring is a method for reshaping misshaped or oddly shaped teeth by strategically removing small amounts of enamel until the desired tooth shape is achieved.

Cosmetic fillings are tooth-colored dental fillings that blend in with your natural teeth. Whether the filling is used to fill a cavity or as part of root canal treatment, the cosmetic filling strengthens the tooth while blending in naturally. Professional tooth whitening treatments can brighten and whiten teeth by several shades in a single treatment that lasts only about an hour. Professional tooth whitening treatments applied by dental staff are safe and effective, and results can last for up to several years.

Lumineers are wafer-thin covers that give teeth a brand new look. Lumineers can be used to cover teeth that are stained, misshaped, cracked, chipped, discolored, or dull. Lumineers can even close small gaps between teeth. The process of placing Lumineers on the front surface of teeth is fairly simple. The Lumineers are permanently bonded to the teeth so they remain securely in place for years.

Two of the best ways to care for your child’s smile are to schedule regular checkups with a pediatric dentist and to teach your child good pediatric dentistryoral hygiene habits early. Properly caring for your children’s smiles while they are young helps lead to healthier permanent teeth as they grow. Proper care includes assisting them with brushing twice daily and scheduling dental checkups with a pediatric dentist every six months. At Miracle Dentistry, Dr. Dora Rodriguez, and Dr. May Yazji-Corey are your pediatric dentists in Cooper City and Pembroke Pines, FL.

Good Oral Hygiene Habits

You can help your children develop good oral hygiene habits early by teaching them how to brush their teeth thoroughly and gently. For children under the age of three, a fluoride-free training toothpaste should be used. Once children turn three years of age, they can begin using a regular toothpaste containing fluoride. In addition to emphasizing the importance of brushing twice daily, it is also important to schedule regular dental visits with your Cooper City and Pembroke Pines pediatric dentist.

Childhood Dental Visits

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children see a dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting, which is usually around age one. Regular dental visits will keep your child’s teeth and gums the healthiest. Plus, children who visit the dentist regularly are more likely to continue doing so as adults, leading to life-long good oral hygiene habits.

Pediatric dentists are a good choice when you have children versus selecting another type of dentist, such as one who practices family or general dentistry. Pediatric dentists specialize in working with children of all ages and understand how best to reassure and comfort children who are feeling nervous or anxious about their dental visit.

Care for your child’s smile by teaching good oral hygiene habits and scheduling regular pediatric dental appointments. To schedule an appointment for your child with Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Yazji-Corey, your Cooper City and Pembroke Pines, FL pediatric dentists, call Miracle Dentistry at (954) 431-3025.

Time and oral injury have taken their toll on your smile. You're missing several teeth, and you want to span the resulting gaps and chew denturesand bite normally again. Are your smile goals achievable? If you visit Miracle Dental Center, they are. This highly and diversely skilled team of general dentists in Cooper City, FL and serving Pembroke Pines offer numerous restorative, preventive, and cosmetic services. Dentures are one of them.

What are dentures?

They are tooth replacements made of lifelike acrylic. Customized according to precise oral impressions and digital X-ray imaging, dentures from Miracle Dental Center allow you to:

  • Bite and chew your favorite foods
  • Smile with confidence
  • Avoid premature facial wrinkling
  • Normalize your speech clarity

There are 60 million edentulous people in the United States, and many do not wear dentures or other tooth replacements. That's unfortunate and ill-advised. If you desire a fully functional teeth once again, your general dentists in Cooper City and Pembroke Pines can help. Their carefully crafted prosthetics are stable and well-fitting; so you can count on them to last for many years.

Types of dentures

Basically, there are four types of dentures. You and your general dentist will decide what type is best for your unique needs.

Partial denture This appliance replaces one or more missing teeth on the top or bottom arch. Consisting of artificial teeth, or pontics, mounted on a light metal frame, a partial denture affixes to adjoining natural teeth via snugly-fitting clasps. A "partial" resembles a puzzle piece, filling the gaps in your otherwise healthy smile.

Full conventional denture This appliance replaces an entire arch of teeth. It is fitted and placed after gums have healed and receded after tooth extraction. If the patient has enough jaw bone, the dentist may suggest an implant-retained denture. Supported on multiple titanium implants inserted into the jaw, this kind of denture provides superior chewing and stability. Plus, it preserves the size and density of the jaw bone.

Immediate denture The dentist places this type of prosthetic right after tooth extraction, allowing the patient to leave the office with a full set of teeth. Unfortunately, however, most immediate dentures require relining or even replacement because as the gums and bone heal, they shrink, changing the fit of the denture.

What Is Oral Hygiene and Why Is It Important?
Oral hygiene is ensuring that your mouth, teeth, and gums stay as clean as possible throughout the day. A clean mouth is a healthy mouth.

Basic hygiene techniques include brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Your Pembroke Pines, FL dentist can help with more intensive cleaning to maintain good hygiene, including professional cleanings and scaling and root planing.

How Good Is Your Oral Hygiene Routine?

- Do you floss your teeth before bed at night?
- When you brush, do you take care to reach all surfaces, front and back, and brush for at least two minutes at a time?
- Do you brush at least twice per day?
- Do you change your toothbrush every three months?
- Are your teeth free from plaque buildup around your gumline?

If you answered yes to these questions, you probably have a good oral hygiene routine.

Oral Hygiene Tips
Here are a few tips that can help you maintain your oral hygiene:

- Keep your toothbrush and floss by your bed at night so that you’ll remember to take care of your teeth before you go to sleep.
- If your mouth feels irritated or inflamed, rinse with warm salt water and see your Pembroke Pines, FL dentist for a check-up soon.

Learn about the cause of your jaw pain from your Cooper City and Pembroke Pines area dentist.jaw pain

Many adults suffer from chronic jaw pain. As there are many potential causes of jaw discomfort, correct diagnosis is vital. Your doctor needs to identify the exact cause of your pain in order to provide the best course of treatments. Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL, and serving Pembroke Pines offers a complete range of dental services. Read on to learn about the causes of jaw pain.

1. TMJ Disorder

The most commonly reported cause of jaw pain is temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). TMJ disorder is a condition related to the temporomandibular joint, which is a joint that connects your jaw to your skull. TMJ disorder can cause pain in the jaw, neck, face, or head; clicking or popping sounds when closing and opening the mouth; and a jaw that can be locked shut or locked open. Examples of TMJ treatments include: medications, TMJ exercises, stabilization splints, orthodontics, and surgical procedures.

2. Teeth Grinding

Occasional teeth grinding, or bruxism, doesn't usually cause harm, but when it happens on a regular basis, the teeth can be damaged and further complications can arise. A sore jaw or a dull, constant headache are telltale symptoms of bruxism. If you suspect you may be grinding your teeth, see your dentist. Based on your dentist’s diagnosis, one or more treatments may be recommended.

3. Abscessed Tooth

A tooth abscess is an infection at the root of a tooth or between a tooth and the gum. It's most commonly caused by severe tooth decay. An abscessed tooth causes swelling around the tooth, leading to tissue destruction and jaw pain. Talk to your dentist if you have jaw pain and an abscessed tooth. The infection can spread to your jawbone, causing further complications.

4. Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, can result in pain in the jaw area. Gum disease is an infection of the structures around the teeth. Symptoms of gum disease may include bleeding gums, gum recession, swollen gums, and bad breath. Treatments for gum disease may include scaling and root planing, antibiotics, or surgical treatments. Periodontal disorder is a progressive disorder that if left untreated will get worse over time.

Leave your jaw pain behind. Call Miracle Dental Center at 954-885-9560 right now to schedule a dental appointment in Cooper City, FL and serving the Pembroke Pines area. Get your life back on track by receiving the best jaw pain treatment available.
