Gum disease is a prevalent condition that can have serious consequences if left untreated. Studies show that half the population in the United States suffer from some degree of gum disease, and gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. With state-of-the-art preventive care, which includes a Miami teeth cleaning and comprehensive checkup, your dentist can stop the progress of gum disease before it causes irreversible damage. At Balmir-Thevenin & Associates, DDS, PA, we use advanced approaches to prevent, detect and treat gum disease.

To prevent the detrimental effects of plaque, be sure to brush and floss regularly, and visit your dentist for a thorough, professional Miami teeth cleaning. When plaque accumulates below the gum line, it can cause the tissue and bone supporting the teeth to become infected and inflamed. Pregnancy, smoking and diabetes increase your risk for developing this condition. Gum disease develops in stages, the earliest of which, gingivitis, may be painless. Your dentist will perform a clinical examination and use diagnostic films, as needed, to determine the presence of gingivitis. If this earliest stage of gum disease has progressed, your dentist may recommend more extensive periodontal treatment with scaling and root planing. Scaling is a procedure that removes plaque that has gathered underneath the gums, and root planing smooths the root surfaces of teeth to prevent plaque from accumulating in the rough crevices. Addressing gum disease from the outset, when it is most easily treatable, prevents the condition from progressing to more advanced stages. In its later stages, treatment for periodontal disease may involve surgery, grafting and medication.

Throughout treatment, your gentle and precise dentist will keep you comfortable and thoroughly informed. At Balmir-Thevenin & Associates, DDS, PA we provide quality Miami teeth cleaning and examinations to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your life.

When there is irreversible damage and decay to the nerves of your teeth, root canal therapy may be the recommended course of treatment. Underneath the outermost biting surface of your teeth are core tissues referred to as the dental pulp. Dental pulp plays an important role in the growth and development of your teeth, however, once an adult tooth is fully developed, it no longer requires dental pulp to remain functional. When pulp becomes infected due to a deep cavity or fracture that allows bacteria to seep in or injury due to trauma, it can die.

Dead or damage tooth pulp causes increased pressure, which can become painful over time. During your Kendall root canal treatment, your dentist will remove the damaged pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber, then seal the tooth with inert material to prevent subsequent infection. We will keep you informed, at ease and entirely comfortable throughout the procedure. Root canal therapy has a very successful outcome with ninety-five percent effectiveness in saving teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy can remain healthy throughout your life. It is important to pursue root canal treatment as immediately as possible in order to prevent the infection from progressing.

At Balmir-Thevenin & Associates, your Kendall root canal experts, we provide the highest quality dental care in a friendly, relaxed office setting. If it’s time to schedule a check-up, or if you are experiencing a toothache, don’t hesitate – call!  We’re here to take care of you.
