Brightside Family Dental is committed to providing a wide range of services, including restorative and cosmetic smile improvements, but our first focus is keeping your smile (and body) healthy with quality prevention.
We invest in advanced technologies and stay current with the latest dental treatments and techniques, allowing our skilled team to spot potential oral health issues before they get the chance to become serious problems.
During routine preventive visits, Dr. Mistry will asses the state of your oral health, clean hard-to-reach surfaces of the teeth, and ensure that any dental health issues are addressed early on. Dr. Mistry offers the very best preventive care and dental cleanings near Chapel Hill, NC and beyond!
We offer the following preventive care services:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Because we understand how oral health can influence the health of your entire body, we encourage our patients to visit us for dental cleanings at least twice a year. Depending on the current state of your oral health, we may recommend more frequent, targeted cleanings. Dr. Mistry will also educate you on the steps you can take to care for your teeth at home.
What can you expect during your preventive cleaning with Dr. Mistry?
- Friendly conversation with our dental team about your oral and overall health
- A gentle, thorough preventive cleaning
- X-rays to ensure accurate diagnosis
- Honest advice and answered questions to cover all your oral health concerns
Our team uses the latest, most advanced tools to perform dental cleanings. We'll polish your teeth to help remove stains and discoloration, and if your teeth could benefit from further strengthening, we might recommend an additional mineral treatment.
Night Guards For TMJ Pain
If you grind your teeth (bruxism) while you sleep, it could lead to headaches, TMJ, and uneven tooth wear. These effects of TMJ can negatively impact the quality of your life and the function of your bite. To correct the problem and preserve your healthy teeth, Dr. Mistry offers custom-made night guards that are specially crafted to fit each patient.
Mouth Guards For Athletics
For patients who are involved in any type of sports, we recommend superior smile protection in the form of an athletic mouth guard! A custom-fitted mouth guard will be one of your best pieces of insurance and offer effective protection against dental injuries, trauma or concussions.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
If you are sensitive to hot or cold, and you find yourself avoiding certain foods or modifying your diet as a result, then we have a solution for you. Dr. Mistry will assess the cause of your tooth sensitivity and offer a non-invasive treatment designed to reduce sensitivity for months!
Dental Care for Whole Body Health
At Brightside Family Dental, our team understands that many lifestyle factors can influence dental health and overall health. This includes oral hygiene habits, genetics, and nutrition habits. Dr. Mistry, through his holistic examination process, can offer additional oral health suggestions based on his extensive nutrition knowledge.
Healthy sleeping is also a part of healthy living. With Dr. Mistry's extensive training in sleep apnea, he will work with you to uncover sleep problems that may be keeping you from experiencing optimal health. Our goal is to guide our patients to health and happiness, and that’s why we offer comprehensive dentistry to treat your whole body — not just your smile!
