Family Dentistry in North Miami Beach, FL

Protecting Your Family’s Smiles

Your family deserves good health and confident smiles. Their everyday lives are dependent on how their teeth look and feel, from eating to speaking and smiling. That’s why Drs. Eli Abbo, Bill Abbo, and Johanna Gallego are passionate about providing their family dentistry services at our North Miami Beach dental office. 

Family dentistry is the practice of maintaining and protecting your oral health, along with educating patients about the importance of oral hygiene. We recommend scheduling these appointments twice a year to give your family healthy, stunning smiles. 

Discover how our family dentistry team can give your loved ones healthy smiles for life by exploring our guide below.

Oral Health Cleanings & Exams A family is brushing their teeth, practicing family dentistry.

Your routine appointments will begin with a professional cleaning from a member of our experienced dental team. They’ll clean each tooth to remove plaque and tartar. Frequently deep-cleaning your teeth and examining your smile allows us to treat any necessary dental problem before it causes severe damage. 

Plaque is a thin, white film of bacteria that develops from food, smoke, and mucus on your teeth. If it’s not removed by daily brushing and flossing, it will harden into tartar, a harmful substance that causes tooth decay, gum disease, and other uncomfortable conditions.

We’ll provide periodontal (gum) care for your family during their routine oral health visits. This semiannual examination allows our periodontist to identify and treat gum problems before they progress. During this process, they’ll use specialized tools to remove tartar buildup from beneath your gums. 

Tartar buildup beneath your gums forms pockets that often lead to gum disease, which is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. 

Don’t wait to treat any of the symptoms, which include:

  • Swollen, bleeding, or painful gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Longer teeth
  • Receding gums

Fluoride Treatments & Dental Sealants A blonde mom holds her daughter during their family dentistry appointment.

Our dentists often recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants to help strengthen your family’s teeth and prevent tooth decay. These treatments are used commonly with children, but patients of any age benefit from the mineral. 

The fluoride rinse treatment uses a concentrated mineral gel that we’ll apply to your teeth at your regular appointments. This rinse is clinically proven to prevent tooth decay and is a safe option for anyone to use. 

Dental sealants are tooth-colored solutions that smooth the surface of your tooth’s enamel. Sealants keep harmful bacteria from nestling into the natural grooves of your teeth, helping you and your family avoid tooth decay. Best of all, these sealants last for several years, especially with daily oral health care.

Root Canals A man points to his beautiful smile after a family dentistry appointment.

Root canals are routine procedures that help patients relieve symptoms of infection and decay that have reached the pulp of their teeth. The dental pulp is the center portion of your tooth that is composed of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. 

Our dentists use accurate dental technology to drill a small hole into the root canal, removing the infection and allowing your tooth to heal to save it from extraction. We’ll then seal it with a tooth-colored filling that blends seamlessly with your teeth. The filling keeps bacteria from entering and re-infecting the root canal site. Sometimes, patients with more extensive procedures may require a dental crown instead of a filling.

Dental Fillings & Crowns a dad lifts his child over his head while the child smiles, showing off his family dentistry.

Dental fillings and crowns are restorative options that allow you to protect and repair a damaged tooth. Our dentists have a solution to fix your teeth, whether we’re repairing a cavity or correcting dental trauma. 

Dental fillings are created with a liquid solution that fills the damaged portion, replacing and keeping bacteria from hiding on any uneven surfaces. Crowns are a more substantial and visible restoration option. We can also personalize your crown, so it’ll look natural with your smile.

Tooth Extractions

At Dr. Abbo Advanced Dentistry, we do everything we can to create solutions that maintain your natural teeth. However, certain oral health situations require us to perform tooth extractions to maintain your overall health. 

Our dentists know how nervous this routine procedure can make patients feel. That’s why we use sedation dentistry and other tools to ensure that you feel little to no discomfort during the process. We’ll also provide you with a detailed guide to healing following your tooth extraction procedure.
