Custom Sports Mouthguards
Custom sports mouthguards are a way to protect your teeth and mouth from damage during contact sports. We create each one individually for each patient to ensure a perfect fit every time. You can use custom mouthguards for sports, labor-intensive work, and other activities that put your teeth at risk.
We create our custom sports mouthguards to fit the individual athlete’s mouth and provide protection from impacts. The custom-fit ensures that the mouthguard is comfortable to wear and provides the best possible protection during physical activity. Additionally, custom sports mouthguards will absorb shock from impacts and can help reduce the risk of dental injuries. To learn more about our custom mouthguards, see Mouthguards.
Root Canal Procedure
Root canal procedures are a common form of dental treatment which entails accessing the microscopic inner layer of a tooth. In this area, known as the root canal, lies various tissue such as nerves and pulp that provide nourishment to the developing tooth. You may need a root canal treatment when you sense severe pain in a specific tooth or area of your mouth.
- Signs may include the following:
- Severe toothache pain that persists.
- Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures in a specific tooth.
- Discoloration or darkening of a tooth.
- Tenderness or swelling in the gums near the affected tooth.
- An abscess or pimple-like formation on the gums near the affected tooth.
- A cluster of smaller pimples or blisters on the gums near the affected tooth.
- Pain when biting down on the tooth.
- A visible fracture in a tooth.

Periodontal therapy is a dental service that we provide to help you alleviate bleeding gums, gum pain, gum sensitivity, and manage gum disease. Gum disease is a chronic and progressive condition that can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums. Fortunately, modern treatments are available that can help relieve the symptoms of severe periodontal disease. Our team of dentists can provide a range of periodontal treatments to help restore the health of your gums and prevent further damage. To learn about our periodontal disease treatments, see Periodontal therapy.
A dental crown procedure is a restoration process that we conduct to improve the shape, size, strength and appearance of a tooth. To fix a damaged tooth using a dental crown, our dentists will first prepare the area in your mouth. They will then create dental impressions to form a temporary crown and subsequently install the permanent crown using dental cement. Our dental crown procedure is a great way to safeguard your weakened teeth and improve their function after a root canal. To learn more about restoring a tooth using a dental crown at our office, see Dental crowns.
Tooth bonding is a procedure that involves bonding a composite material, such as tooth-colored resin, to the surface of a damaged tooth in order to repair or enhance its look. Dr. Dhara Patel can provide bonding to improve the shape, color, size and alignment of a tooth. The composite material that we use for bonding is similar to a white filling. The bonding process typically takes less than an hour to complete. To learn more about bonding a tooth, see Tooth bonding.
Dental fillings are a common and effective way of treating cavities and other dental issues. When we discover decay, we use fillings to restore the structure of the tooth and prevent further damage from occurring. The process of getting a filling usually involves the removal of the decayed portion of the tooth, cleaning the area, and placing the filling material. The type of filling you get will depend on the size and location of the cavity. With proper care and maintenance, dental fillings can last for many years. To learn about our cavity filling services, see Dental fillings.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Dental implants are small, metal posts that we surgically place in the jawbone to provide a base for a replacement tooth or dental prosthetic. The implants act as a substitute for the root of the missing tooth, making them the most sought-after tooth replacement option today.
The process of getting dental implants is relatively straightforward, but it spans across several months. To learn about the steps involved in getting dental implants, see Dental implants.
Professional teeth whitening treatments are very popular at our dental office as people look for ways to improve their smiles. There are a variety of different options available, ranging from in-office treatments to at-home kits. Our In-office teeth whitening treatments involve the use of powerful whitening agents and lasers that can dramatically lighten the shade of your teeth in a single visit.
Professional teeth whitening treatments can be an effective way to get a brighter, whiter smile without having to resort to more extreme measures such as veneers or bonding. To learn more about our teeth whitening treatments, see Teeth whitening.
Caring for Primary Teeth
The primary teeth play an important role in your child’s overall growth and development. In addition to being placeholders for the permanent teeth, they also support normal speech and a confident smile.
As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, clean it with a clean, wet washcloth or wet gauze. Clean the gums also be even before the primary teeth show. If a toothbrush is used, it should be an appropriate size. With inappropriate or prolonged use of the baby bottle, decay may occur on the upper front teeth.
Decay also occurs in the upper primary molars. These teeth are furthest back in the mouth. If there is no spacing between the primary teeth, there is a much greater chance of decay between the primary molars as they can be difficult to clean. Your child’s teeth should be gently flossed as soon as they come in.
Children who experience tooth decay may be more prone to oral health issues later in life. However, tooth decay can be preventable with routine dental care and good oral hygiene. Scheduling office visits to Best Dental Spa can help our professionals find early signs of decay and disease before more complex problems develop. Visiting the family dentist twice a year can help patients of all ages maintain healthy oral hygiene habits.
Our team offers oral hygiene advice and instruction on the best brushing and flossing techniques to younger patients. We encourage parents and caregivers to get involved in their child’s oral health care at home and at the family dentist. Setting a good example can help improve your child’s oral health.
During your child’s first visit to Best Dental Spa, Dr. Dhara Patel will:
- Examine their teeth and gums
- Address habits like thumb sucking
- Teach your child about cleaning their teeth and gums
- Help you schedule regular dental visits for your child
Our family dentists provide personalized treatment for patients of every age. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy as you age will maintain facial structure, the ability to eat a varied diet, and confidence in social interactions.
We custom-fit our restorative and cosmetic solutions for comfort, and each patient’s health is taken into account before recommending treatment. It is important to receive professional dental care on a routine basis to avoid complex problems that can arise over time.
Dr. Patel and our dental care team can assess your smile and provide an examination to determine the best solution for your dental health needs and cosmetic goals. Patients who are dealing with tooth loss can replace a missing tooth or teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. Worn or yellowed teeth can be treated with teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or tooth bonding. Our professionals can provide treatment for every dental need.
