Your Neighborhood Washington, DC Dentist Office

Our convenient location in Capital Hill makes going to the dentist easier than ever for Washington, DC residents. We encourage you to contact our office and schedule an appointment if you have a dental concern you’d like addressed.

Our dedicated dental care team is compassionate and responsive to the well-being of all our patients. The following are common dental concerns that we treat in our office.

Bleeding Gums

Gingivitis, or bleeding gums, is one of the first signs that your mouth is at risk for gum disease progression. Gum disease occurs when food residues harden into plaque and tartar on your teeth and begin to cause damage to your soft tissues. The bacteria in the residue irritate your soft tissues. That causes small amounts of blood to appear in the sink following brushing or flossing.

Contact us when you have bleeding gums and other associated symptoms of gum disease. Dr. Nishan Halim can provide you with the periodontal treatment options you need to restore your gum health.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth cause more than just cosmetic concerns with your mouth. They also affect the functionality of your bite pattern when you are performing daily tasks like chewing or speaking.

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with a missing tooth or a full mouth of teeth. Dr. Nishan Halim can provide you with the restorative dentistry options you need to replace lost teeth. We offer a wide range of tooth replacement options including dental implants, the best tooth replacement option.

Bruxism

Teeth grinding, or bruxism is a destructive habit that causes a wide range of dental damage over time. Dr. Nishan Halim works with his patients who grind their teeth at night to prevent this from occurring.

Often, teeth grinding is the result of high stress and anxiety. We encourage our patients to practice mindfulness and breathing exercises to reduce stress, especially before bed. In addition, we also offer custom night guards to wear at night while you sleep. The night guard protects your dental structures from grinding against each other and causing damage.

Sleep Apnea

Loud snoring is often a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. Without treatment, sleep apnea causes associated health risks like high blood pressure, heart problems, and strokes. We are here to help our patients achieve a better night’s sleep using oral appliance therapy.

Dr. Nishan Halim helps our patients with sleep apnea maintain a clear airway as they sleep. He will do everything he can to reduce your sleep apnea symptoms and ensure you are able to sleep well at night.

Crooked Teeth

Crooked, misaligned teeth can create unintended pressure points inside your mouth. This causes a wide range of long-term issues. To help our patients with crooked teeth, Dr. Nishan Halim provides Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is an excellent option for patients that want to discreetly treat mild to moderate orthodontic concerns.
