Dr. Bakhtiar Bana
Your Dentist at Smithville Dental
My name is Bakhtiar Bana, and I am a graduate of the University of Texas School of Dentistry (UTSD) at Houston. After marrying in 2020, I moved to Austin, TX, where I provided dental services to patients of all ages. Today, I live in Bastrop, TX. In my free time, I like to watch football, hike, try new foods, and BBQ. Recently, I gained interest in smoking briskets and ribs, so if you have any tips/recipes to help me improve my skills I'd love to hear about it during our appointment!I am a firm believer in lifelong learning, therefore I am regularly involved in continuing education courses. I don't think of these courses as requirements for my license, but rather as ways of learning how to be best for my patients. I believe my past and current experiences, both in educational and work place settings, have shaped me as a leader, team player, and a proud health care provider.Looking forward to meeting you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the things I should take care of for my first consultation?
Please refrain from using any painkillers or medications before seeing your dentist if you are experiencing tooth pain because they will hide the symptoms.
You must always carry your:
● Your medical history.
● History of Allergies
How often should visit the dentist?
One ought to at the very least visit dentist twice a year or every six months for routine check-ups.
One is urged to see the dentist right away if they have a toothache, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, or any other dental issue.
Can Brushing Teeth Cause Loose Teeth?
No infact The cleaning process prevents teeth from becoming loose. The bone and gums around the teeth help to keep them firmly in place. The food particles and bacteria that form tartar around the teeth infect the bone and gums. This illness causes the bone and gum levels to recede, resulting in gaps between the teeth. If this tartar is not routinely removed, teeth may become loose. The cleaning process will assist in removing tartar and halt the recession of the gum and bone. The teeth and gums’ health and longevity will improve as a result.
Certainly, having your child's teeth filled is vital.
Children must use their baby teeth until they are adults and have their permanent teeth in order to chew, speak, and smile. Permanent teeth are held in place by baby teeth. Baby teeth are more prone to tilt or slip into empty spaces if your child loses a baby tooth too soon, leaving less room in the jaw for the eruption of the permanent tooth. The permanent tooth could erupt obstructed or with crowding if addressed.
Baby teeth that are decayed can be painful, infected, and problematic when it comes to sleeping, eating, and going to school. Some children don’t lose their baby teeth until they’re 12 or 13, which is too long for them to be in pain.
A dental filling is what? Do I require it?
A filling can bring back the function and appearance of a tooth that has been decayed. A filling is performed by a dentist by first extracting the decayed/black deep cavities, cleaning the damaged area, and then filling the cleaned-out area of the tooth with a biocompatible filling material.
A filling also aids in stopping additional degradation by preventing access points for microorganisms. At Smithville Dental we use composite filling to give your tooth a natural white appearance.
What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Cracked or Broken?
See your local dentist right away if your tooth is fractured, chipped, or broken. Otherwise, your tooth can suffer additional harm or develop an infection. The tooth can end up falling out. The course of treatment for a broken or chipped tooth will depend on how badly it has been hurt. A good tooth-colored filling can usually be used to replace a little bit of fractured enamel or the outside white surface of the tooth. A root canal, crown, or dental veneer may be necessary for a tooth that is severely cracked or damaged.
Is Smithville Dentistry an X-ray facility?
We do, indeed. Your dentist at Smithville Dentistry can use X-rays to look for oral health problems that could be challenging to spot during a visual examination alone. To create a baseline for your oral health, spot potential issues like cavities, tooth rot, and impacted teeth, or get ready for a more extensive dental procedure, your dentist may advise getting a full series of X-rays.
