Comfortable, gentle general dentistry
General dentistry is dental care that everyone needs during the course of their lifetime. General dentistry includes all of the preventive dental care that you receive to keep your smile bright and healthy, from childhood through adulthood. Dental cleanings and dental exams, gum disease treatment, fluoride treatments, cavity detection, nutritional counseling, and even custom athletic mouthguards are all included in general dentistry.
Dental exams and dental cleanings
Dental exams and dental cleanings allow your dentist the chance to evaluate your teeth and entire mouth and catch any issues that may begin to develop. This is also when we will make sure that all of those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth are thoroughly cleaned.
How we treat gum disease
I had teeth that really were not firmly in place. I would go through periods of not being able to eat on one side of my mouth. He has done some major, major work including—I had periodontal disease and he handled that. Did some very, very serious work on my gums, and really emphasized to me the connection between dental health and other health issues. It's no joke. It's not just a matter of your teeth hurting or bad breath. Those things can be indications and lead to more serious health problems.
As I said, in a gentle, non-judgmental way, there's a real education that goes on too while you're seeing him. He has certainly helped that way. He has helped me with the smile. I mean, I just had horrendous teeth, and he’s, over the years, bit by bit, when things needed to be done, he's replaced…I can't even tell you how many implants I have now, which is not a fun or easy or an inexpensive thing, but all in all, it was by far the better alternative, and I'm really happy I have followed his advice and have done that.
I recommend this practice without reservation. I urge anyone I talk to who is looking for a dentist without a moment's hesitation. I say, “You've got to go try Dr. Brar. He's very easy to talk to, very mild mannered, very concerned about your comfort, always checking to see, “Does this hurt? What can I do?”” I have had a lifelong fear understates the dread I've had of going to the dentist, and because of that, I put off getting things done I should've had done. Ever since I started seeing him, it's like, no big deal. He has taken the terror out of it for me.
Gum disease is a dangerous dental disease that can lead to rampant tooth loss. This problem often begins with bleeding or swollen gums. Regular treatment with scaling and root planing is required to clear up your gum disease. We also use a localized antibiotic treatment to treat the infection that is destroying your gum tissue. If your gum disease has reached advanced levels, you may need bone grafting or gum grafting to repair the damage.
Resolving your jaw pains
We don’t know what definitively causes TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) , but we know what contributes to it. Trauma in the area of the joint is a big contributor. Grinding your teeth (bruxism) is both a contributor and a symptom of TMJ disorder. Dr. Brar will go over your situation and can create a splint to take the stress off your joint. This will help it heal on its own.
No more chronic bad breath, dry mouth
These two problems are often caused by decay or gum infection.
Dr. Brar will help you figure out what is causing your dry mouth and can find a solution to help you get past this irritating condition. Dry mouth is one reason you may have chronic bad breath. Dr. Brar will help you figure out the cause and get your breath back to smelling great.
