Gum Disease Consultation Experience

Drs Gallardo and Lamas are proud to announce that the PerioLase Laser has arrived in the City of Miami.  Similar to what LASIK did for eye problems, this patented and FDA cleared laser therapy allows us to treat periodontal patients with a minimally invasive breakthrough procedure. For the first time, Laser Periodontal Therapy™ is available for our patients otherwise facing gum surgery for periodontal disease.

If you're like millions of other Americans, you could be one of more than 75% of Americans who have periodontal disease, the major cause of tooth loss in adults.  Until now, that meant surgery and sutures. But today, our office offers  LANAP™.   You can feel confident knowing Drs Gallardo and Lamas continue to have world-class technology and care.

Procedure Spotlight

Dental Implants - These are teeth that look and feel just like your own! When a tooth is lost, it's best to replace it with an implant as promptly as possible. After tooth loss, the load on each remaining tooth is increased because there are fewer of them. To restore proper chewing ability, the support lost from the missing tooth needs to be increased.

To compare chewing efficiency, let's assume a patient with all his or her natural teeth can chew at 100 percent efficiency. With every tooth that is lost, the amount of chewing efficiency decrease depends on whether or not the teeth are replaced and how. Ultimately, if all teeth are lost, the patient will have perhaps a 15 to 18 percent chewing efficiency (even with good-fitting dentures on adequate bony ridges).

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours are preserved.

You take a sip of your morning latte only to feel a sharp pain in your teeth. Or, you feel a stinging sensation whenever you eat something cold, such as ice cream. If pain when you eat, drink or try to brush your teeth is the norm, you most likely have sensitive teeth. A number of things can cause sensitivity, from cavities to gum disease. It's possible to relieve the discomfort caused by sensitive teeth. In some cases, relief involves treating the underlying cause of the sensitivity. You can also reduce it by improving the strength of your teeth. What Causes Sensitive Teeth When your teeth are healthy, they are covered with enamel, a hard protective coating made of calcium. The enamel is over top of the dentin, a softer, more porous substance that covers the nerves in the teeth. If the enamel wears away or is cracked, liquids are able to get to the dentin. The dentin contains a number... continue

At the start of summer, you might start thinking about how to protect your skin from the rays of the sun. While your teeth don't need sunscreen, they do need to be protected from damage that's more likely to occur in the summer months. More physical activity, as well as sugary drinks and frozen treats, can increase your risk for damage to your teeth, meaning you might need a dental implant to repair a broken or worn out tooth. A summertime diet full of sugary foods can also increase your risk for gum disease. Enjoy the summer months, just remember to pay attention to your teeth and gums. Here are a few ways you can keep your mouth in good shape this summer.
