General Dental Care
Sports mouthguards protect teeth from injury and prevent patients from needing future restorative dental work. Wearing a mouthguard during contact sports prevents tooth loss, reduces the chance of concussion, and protects dental work from damage. Over-the-counter mouthguards may fall out or make it difficult to speak. We provide professional custom-fit mouthguards that fit securely in the mouth and do not restrict speech. When sports mouthguards fit properly, they do not distract athletes from what’s happening in the game. Store-bought mouthguards can feel bulky and may shift in the mouth, which causes patients to focus on clenching their jaw to keep the mouthguard in place.
If you have lost a tooth, feel severe tooth pain, or have a broken dental restoration, call Dr. Halim’s Washington, DC dental office at 202.318.4113.

We also offer cosmetic treatments and dental restorations that will help you get your smile back following a dental emergency.
Laser dentistry is a modern dental solution that eliminates the need for drills or needles. Procedures conducted with laser dentistry are painless and more comfortable than traditional dental procedures. They also offer faster healing times, minimized bleeding, more accurate treatment, and fewer side effects for patients. Dental lasers use light technology and do not irritate any sensitive tissues in the mouth. Laser dentistry can be used to whiten teeth, lengthen tooth crowns, and treat tongue-tie. Dental lasers can also remove tooth decay as well as treat gummy smiles and periodontitis, or gum disease.
Sedation dentistry is a simple way to have a pain-free and stress-free visit to the dentist. Minor or complex dental concerns can be addressed with sedation and it can be used for all types of patients. Nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or oral conscious sedation are common methods of dental sedation. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask. Oral conscious sedation is taken in pill form an hour before treatment. IV sedation administers anti-anxiety medication through a tube and into the bloodstream.
