These routine visits provide the opportunity for us to screen for dental concerns and provide recommendations to maintain your smile. Taking care of your oral health contributes to longevity and quality of life. Dr. Sulekha Agrawal and her team can work with you to diagnose and treat complex dental concerns in Columbia, MD.

Treating Dental Concerns
Dr. Agrawal offers treatment for a variety of common dental problems in her Columbia, MD dental office:
If your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth, you may have gingivitis. Gingivitis is the first sign of developing periodontitis or gum disease. Be aware of other symptoms of gum infection including red or swollen gums, bad breath, or tooth sensitivity. We can remove bacteria from on and around the teeth in our Columbia dental office to prevent bleeding gums as well as more painful symptoms of periodontitis.
Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth? Dr. Agrawal can improve the look of single crooked teeth with porcelain veneers or dental bonding. If you have moderately or severely misaligned teeth, you may require Invisalign treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are more comfortable and offer a quicker treatment time than metal braces.
Dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures may restore one or more missing teeth. Implant-secured restorations look and feel more natural than removable restoration. Dental implants provide stability and longevity because they replace teeth at the root. During a process called osseointegration, implant posts fuse to the jawbone for optimal security.
If you snore or continually wake up during the night, you may have sleep apnea. One of the most prevalent types of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, which makes it difficult to breathe during the night and can lead to increased heart problems. CPAP machines or oral appliances may be used to open up the airways and allow for restful sleep.
