FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions At Our Aventura, FL Office

Here are some questions we often hear at Aventura Dental Center and the details that answer them. Of course, you can always ask your questions directly by using our online form.


Q: How Do I Choose The Right Toothbrush?

A:

Your toothbrush is the best tool to keep your teeth and mouth healthy, so it makes sense that you should think about which toothbrush to buy. In general, you want a toothbrush with soft bristles and a smaller head. Softer bristles will get rid of food particles without damaging your gums, and a smaller head makes it easier to reach all of your teeth and gums.


Q: Do You Accept Dental Insurance?

A:

We accept most major insurance plans and can even bill your insurance for you. Please call us at 786-681-1127 to see if we accept your particular insurance. We also accept cash and major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover). If you need financial assistance, Lending Club and CareCredit can offer you low-interest or even interest-free payment plans.


Q: How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

A:

Because most people do not have specialized dental training and tools, brushing and flossing alone won’t keep your teeth healthy and clean. You should visit our Aventura, FL office every six months for a cleaning and exam. Not only can we get your teeth very clean, but we can also examine your mouth for any signs of serious or developing issues.


Q: Why Do My Gums Sometimes Bleed After Brushing?

A:

Your gums should not normally bleed after brushing and flossing. If you see blood afterward, either you are using a brush with hard bristles that are damaging the gums, or you are seeing the signs of periodontal disease. This is when bacteria inflame and infect the gums and can lead to the loss of your teeth. If you are bleeding after brushing, you should make an appointment so Dr. Bistritz can see if you have periodontal disease or another issue.


Q: Do You Offer Those Clear Braces I’ve Heard About?

A:

You are probably talking about Invisalign clear plastic aligners. These slowly shift your teeth into proper alignment just like metal braces, but they are more comfortable and almost invisible. Dr. Bistritz is an Invisalign Preferred Provider, meaning he has the training and experience needed to treat orthodontic issues properly with this alternative to braces.


Q: What Should I Do About A Missing Tooth?

A:

The worst thing you can do about a missing tooth is ignore it. Food can collect in the space left behind by a missing tooth, increasing your risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Dr. Bistritz can use a dental bridge to secure an artificial tooth in the gap or a dental implant for a stronger, longer-lasting option.


Q: How Can I Make An Appointment?

A:

If you are ready to schedule an appointment to visit our office, or if you have any questions not answered above, call us today at 786-681-1127 or use our online form.


Q: How can I improve the appearance of yellowed or discolored teeth? | Aventura, FL

Dr. Bistritz is pleased to offer our patients the safe and effective KöR whitening system. So, get in touch with our team today to arrange for your next visit to the Aventura Dental Center!


Q: How Can I Get Dental Implants In Aventura, FL?

A:

That’s easy! Plan to schedule a restorative dentistry consultation with Dr. Bistritz!

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. Following adult tooth loss, we can place a dental implant into the jawbone where the missing tooth used to be in order to help maintain bone mass and prevent a shift in your existing teeth. The new post will immediately begin to fuse to your jawbone to form a permanent anchor to which a modern-style replacement tooth (such as a dental crown) can be attached. When we are through with you, you will look and feel much better.

So, contact us today to schedule your dental implant consultation in our Aventura, FL dentist’s office!


Q: Are there any alternative orthodontic treatments available in Aventura, FL?

A:

Absolutely! Our Aventura, FL dentist’s office offers an alternative adult orthodontic treatment program that utilizes a series of clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners to correct crooked, crowded or gapped teeth without any of the hassles that sometimes characterize the classic braces process.

Whether you are interested in Invisalign for your teenager or for yourself, all you have to do is get in touch to schedule an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Bistritz. As an Invisalign expert, he’ll get you smiling big again in no time!
