  • Artistic Dental Clinic exceeded my expectations of restoring my aging and crumbling smile. Dr. Bedi and his Associates were thorough and professional, putting my concerns at ease. They carefully examined my teeth and came up with a remarkable plan to restore 40 years of haphazard dentistry into a new and youthful smile. The first phase of corrective work has just been completed and I am amazed with the results. For the first time in decades my teeth look and feel good, they fit better than they ever have and I have confidence in eating and smiling again. Good dentistry is always worthwhile, I now have teeth that look and feel good, meant to last a lifetime! Thank you Dr. Bedi and Associates for giving my original teeth a second lease on life!~ Terri and Doyle Johnson
  • Very honest guy top notch~ Andrew Schnabl
  • Dr. Bedi is probably the best dentist I've ever been to. Most dental professionals are knowledgable, but Dr. Bedi is also very sensitive to how his patients are feeling. He is sensitive to the fact that many people have very real fears about dental procedures, and he is very good at making you relax and calming those fears. Dr. Bedi also has seemingly endless patience when it comes to explaining sometimes very complicated dental procedures.The doctor's office makes excellent use of technology; computer monitors in every one of several rooms and ample dental equipment, x-ray ~ Anonymous
  • Thank you, Dr. Bedi! I truly appreciate you taking the time to see us. Especially, on a busy Saturday (4pm), Memorial Day weekend. You promptly returned my call, after I left a message about my 5 yr olds dental emergency. You were very efficient and the cost was fair. Thanks again! I'll definitely keep your number for dental emergencies!~ Jennifer Roy-Lopez
  • I woke up today sat, needing an emergency extraction, Dr. Bedi was the only dentist that called back out of twenty that i tried, he met me at the office and was wonderful, I want to thank him for caring about me and people in general!~ Andrea Stark

+ Root Canals

A root canal is the anatomic space within the root of a tooth. Part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth, it consists of the pulp chamber (within the coronal part of the tooth), the main canal(s), and more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root.

+ Fillings - Including White Fillings

Teeth with were most commonly repaired with amalgam (silver) fillings or gold restorations in the past. Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, teeth can be restored with a more aesthetic and natural appearance. There are different types of cosmetic fillings currently available. The type used will depend on the location of the tooth and the amount of tooth structure that needs to be repaired. Direct Composite Indirect Composite/Porcelain Inlay

+ Crowns

A crown (also called a cap) is a manmade cover that protects the top of a tooth. Why You May Need Crown? • A previously filled tooth which has more filling than tooth. The existing tooth structure becomes weakened and can no longer support the old filling. • Extensive damaged or decayed tooth that needs to be restored to its normal shape, size and to function properly. • Discolorations and compromised esthetics. • Cracked or broken tooth.

+ Bridges

The loss of a single tooth can have a major impact on your dental health and personal appearance. Your teeth support and rely on each other. When one or more teeth are missing, the teeth can shift out of their normal position. Teeth adjacent to the space or from the opposite jaw will often drift or tilt. These teeth are often more susceptible to decay and gum disease because they are more difficult to clean around. All of this shifting and drifting will lead to changes in the bite, which may put stress on the jaws, muscles and teeth. Ultimately, your ability to chew comfortably and your appearance may be affected. If tooth loss occurs, your have two options one is to replace with a single Implant and second is to replace with bridge (Adjacent teeth are prepared as crowns) dentist may recommend that a bridge be placed. Single implant or the bridge is effectively replacing the missing tooth and preventing any shifting.

+ Extraction Procedures - Surgical and Impacted Teeth

FIRST HALF HOUR: Make sure gauze is in place, and do not touch with tongue or fingers. WHEN YOU GET HOME: Wash hands and replace gauze. Bite gently and leave for 20 minutes. Repeat this as often as necessary if oozing continues. Apply an ice pack or cold Towel to cheek or jaw - 20 min. on/ 20 min. off, until bedtime. 24 HOURS AFTER SURGERY: Dissolve exactly 1 teaspoon of salt in 8 oz. of warm water (not hot). Rinse mouth gently, using entire amount. Do this six times daily until you next see the doctor. Promotes Healing. FIRST 2-3 DAYS: Suck on ice chips to keep surgery site cold to reduce swelling. Rest as much as possible, lying down with head elevated. Remember to brush softly on extraction site. NAUSEA: Take one ounce of carbonated drink or a pinch of salt with bicarbonate of soda in a glass of water. Then drink mild tea, clear broth and eat soft foods before resuming your regular diet. DIET: A nutritional diet is very important. During the first 24hours eat soup and soft Foods, gradually progressing to solid foods after a few days--

+ Infection Control

We realize that patients today have many concerns about the safety of receiving their medical and dental care. We understand your concern and would like to share with you some of the things we're doing to protect both you and our staff. Infection control is the term used to describe the prevention of any disease transmission from the patient to the staff, the staff to the patient, and from one patient in the practice to another patient. Any infection control procedure not only protects us, the health-care provider, but also protects you, the patient.

+ Bonding

Bonding, also known as composite bonding, can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Bonding can also be used to fill in gaps between teeth, protect the root of a tooth, or d as an alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts for years.

+ Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal Disease is a disease of pockets. A pocket is the space between your gum tissue and the root of your tooth. This space tends to trap bacteria, which can cause all kinds of problems if left alone. These pockets are analogous to sending your suit (pant & coat) to be drying cleaned. Invariably, some of the lint in your pant & coat pockets is left after the dry cleaning process. Periodontal pockets tend to trap bacterial plaque much the same way. The dry cleaners chemicals cannot reach all the way down into the deep recesses of your pant & coat pockets. Well, neither can your toothbrush reach into your periodontal pockets to get at those incredibly damaging bacteria. Soft Tissue Management Program reduces your pocket depths to make them more accessible for cleaning.

+ TMJ Treatments

What is TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder? It is hinge connecting the upper and lower jaw isn't working properly. This hinge is one of the most complex joints in the body, responsible for moving the lower jaw forward, backward and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working, as it should is called TMJ. Often, TMJ feels like your jaw is popping or clicking or even "getting stuck" for a moment. The exact cause of this misalignment is often impossible to determine.

+ Whitening

Bleaching is tough on stains, but gentle on your teeth. It can remove many stains that are in the outer layers of the teeth. If you teeth have yellowed with age or are stained from tobacco, tea, coffee, or food, bleaching may restore their natural whiteness. Tetracycline stains may take longer to bleach and not respond as well. The color fillings and crowns will not change by bleaching.

+ Gum Treatment - Non Surgical

Treatment methods depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. The emphasis in our practice is conservative periodontal therapy. Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. This usually consists of placing a fine ultrasonic tip or hand curette in between the tooth and gum tissue to remove bacterial plaque and calculus (tartar) below the gum line. The tooth roots may also be planed to smooth the root surfaces. This procedure is commonly known as Scaling and Root Planning. This initial periodontal therapy along with good personal oral hygiene allows the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the tooth. Four to six weeks later, periodontal pockets are eliminated due to gum shrinkage (if the disease is in its earliest stage). Then the patient can personally maintain these areas with routine brushing and flossing. Even in most severe cases of periodontal disease, non-surgical periodontal therapy most often precedes surgical therapy. This is done so that the active periodontal infection is reduced and the overall tissue quality is improved prior to surgery. This procedure may also limit the areas requiring surgery.

+ Veneers

Veneers are made of a thin, translucent coating made out of porcelain or resin (plastic). They are applied to the front teeth to improve their color, shape, or size. They can help you achieve the smile you want. Are Veneers Right for You?Veneers can correct many dental problems. Which includes as follow. 1. Teeth discolored from medication (tetracycline) or age. 2. Chipped or worn front teeth. 3. Spaces between teeth. 4. Teeth that are crooked or uneven.

+ Dental Implants

With nearly 40 million Americans having lost some or all of their teeth, dental implants are an ideal option for replacing those lost teeth. Implants will help you regain confidence in your smile and they feels and function like like natural teeth. They are an alternative to bridges, partials or dentures. A dental implant is a small man-made titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history. Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.

+ Denture Repairs

Accidents can happen to anyone, and even the best-made denture can break. But it doesn’t have to be a catastrophe, even though dentures are very expensive to replace. Your damaged denture can be repaired professionally, quickly and conveniently. Whether your denture has just a hairline crack is broken in two and we can evaluate to fix it most of the time on same day.

+ Dentures Relined

After a new denture has been inserted, it ought to retain in the mouth quite nicely due to the fact that the shape of the inside of the denture base conforms closely to the shape of the gums. Unfortunately, the longer you wear the denture, the more your gums change underneath it, and the looser it gets. In order to restore the retentive qualities of the denture, and to prevent the production of flabby gum tissue under it, you should have the denture relined at least every two years.

+ Digital X-Rays

X-rays are only taken when we believe it will directly benefit your dental health. Dental radiographs are routine to your dental health in order to provide you with the highest standard of care in through diagnosis and treatment planning. We perform x-rays in a safe manner to offer you the greatest protection (X-Ray Safety). They allow us to discover developing tumors cysts, abscesses and decay because 35% off all decay is not visible to the naked eye.

+ Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.

+ Sedation

Depending on the total dose given, oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. For minimal sedation, you take a pill. Typically, the pill is Halcion, which is a member of the same drug family as Valium, and it's usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you'll still be awake. A larger dose may be given to produce moderate sedation. This is the type of anesthesia most commonly associated with sedation dentistry. Some people become groggy enough from moderate oral sedation to actually fall asleep during the procedure. They usually can, though, be awakened with a gentle shake.
