FAQS

Q: How can I make my skin tighter?

Loose skin can have several different causes, including aging, weight loss, and pregnancy. Common places that individuals experience loose skin include the face, neck, stomach, buttocks, arms, and legs. There are a variety of things you can do to improve loose skin. Some options include dieting, exercising, and firming products. For the best results, however, you can schedule an appointment for a radiofrequency skin tightening treatment at Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics. With our safe and powerful technology, we can help you with facial skin tightening, fractional skin resurfacing, body tightening, and body contouring.

q: What can I do to prevent wrinkles?

Wrinkles are caused primarily from a breakdown of collagen. Therefore, preventing collagen breakdown is the most effective treatment for wrinkles. Prevention is best obtained by reducing sun exposure, reducing stress, eating a well-balanced diet, and doing low-impact exercise. Dietary supplements and foods high in Vitamin A will help stimulate new collagen. Also, an effective skin care regimen combined with professional treatments can help initiate collagen synthesis and keep the skin looking and feeling smooth.

q: How does nutrition affect the health of my skin?

When it comes to skin care, antioxidants can help protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lycopene, selenium and vitamins A,C, and E can protect your skin from the inside out by guarding the skin cells from damage. These antioxidants can be found in certain foods or taken as supplements daily.

Q: What are my options for straitening my teeth?

While some people still go with traditional metal braces, there are several other teeth straightening methods available today. Clear braces are similar to traditional braces but much more aesthetic, being composed of porcelain brackets with a wire in between. The most discrete and comfortable option for straightening crooked teeth is Invisalign. Invisalign involves a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for 22 hours per day for the duration of the treatment period.

q: Why do my gums bleed when I brush?

Bleeding is a sign of inflammation. The inflammation is caused from bacteria that build up as plaque between the teeth. Gums should NEVER bleed when brushing. Treatment requires effective brushing and flossing to remove food and plaque. In addition, regular visits to the hygienist will assure you maintain the health of your teeth and gums for years to come.

q: What to do if there are problems with braces and retainers?

If a wire is causing irritation, cover the end with a small cotton ball, beeswax or a piece of gauze until you can get to our office. If a wire gets stuck in the cheek, tongue or gum tissue, do not attempt to remove it. Contact our office immediately. If an appliance becomes loose or a piece of it breaks off, contact our office.

q: What to do if you have a toothache?

Gently rinse the mouth out with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to ensure that there is no food or other debris caught between the teeth. Never put aspirin or any other pain killer against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, contact our office.

q: How does pregnancy affect my oral health?

Recent research indicates that poor oral health can contribute to pre-term delivery and/or a low birth weight of the baby. Women should discuss oral health issues with their physician and/or dentist. Basic dental health concerns during pregnancy include: Need for additional calcium Important to ensure optimum oral health Brushing and flossing more carefully and frequently

Q: How can I get rid of acne?

Acne is caused by hormones and inflammatory bacteria. Washing your face in the morning and the evening with a gentle, exfoliating cleanser is an important action to take in the fight against acne. Many individuals who struggle with acne have seen positive results from taking hormone pills, or even birth control. It is wise to discuss these options with your doctor.
