I was pleased that you provided me the tooth care the same day we called. I was concerned that the pain was due to an on going infection and would persist into the weekend. We were visiting relatives in Florida & were not going home to Connecticut until the following week. Thanks.

Periodontics – The Art of Making Gums Healthy
What is periodontal disease?
Gum disease is the top chronic disease in the world with 80 to 85% of American adults suffering from some degree of gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection in the gums that starts out as plaque and then hardens into tartar. As the tartar builds, bacteria begin to attack soft tissue around the gums. The early stages of gum disease is Gingivitis or gum inflammation which if left untreated will become periodontitis. Periodontitis breaks down the very ligament that attaches your teeth to the supporting bone structures that hold them in place.
How do I know if you have periodontal disease?
Most people don’t realize that they have gum disease because it is painless and there are very few symptoms. Some of the symptoms include tooth mobility, bad breath and bleeding gums. This is why it is important to get your teeth cleaned at least twice a year which includes a review of your medical history and exam to detect any gum disease and tooth decay before it is too late. An up-to-date medical history helps us to recognize conditions, medications or genetic factors that can lead to more advanced and rapid forms of gum disease.
How do we treat periodontal disease?
We use both non-surgical and non-invasive procedures to treat gum disease, but for more advanced cases can perform surgical treatment. Minimally invasive procedures for gingivitis include periodontal deeper cleanings. This is when we remove the tartar from under deeper spaces between teeth and gums. Such procedures are done with full anesthesia. Often we apply antibiotics during multiple appointments for non-surgical treatments that will help to control the growth of bad bacteria. Advanced cases may require a combination of both surgical and non-surgical approaches like a gingival flap surgery, laser assisted flap surgery, etc that would be often complemented with usage of antibacterial medications whenever is indicated. We customize our treatment plans to treat your needs using proven procedures that accomplish the best results. We can also coordinate our efforts with your primary care physicians to maintain best practices that ensure your well being and best standard of care.
What else should I know about gum disease?
We recommend that you have your dental cleanings every 3 to 6 months especially if you have common conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, suffering from any heart problems, any auto immune disorders or when you become pregnant. Special care should be taken if you are receiving radiation or chemotherapy, being prepared for any organ transplant or your doctor suggested a replacement of your knee or hip joints. Such procedures are especially sensitive to presence of any infection including the one that originates from your oral cavity. More likely then not , your oncologist, transplant or orthopedic surgeon will ask us to verify that your teeth and surrounding tissues are free of infection that can compromise the treatment that is being planned for you.

I am from out of town and am not a patient of this practice. I was in extreme pain, my husband called and Dr. Val Daniyar was able to see me the same day. I have an extreme fear of the dentist and on this day I had to have my tooth pulled. I was quite upset!!! The doctor was very informative and reassuring. He pulled my tooth and followed up a week later. Both Dr. Daniyar and his office staff were pleasant and very accommodating.Anonymous
After a horrible morning with a chipped front tooth, Dr. Val Daniyar was able to fit me in that same afternoon and fixed my chip right away. My tooth looks as good as ever and you cannot tell it ever had a chip. I would recommend Dr. Val Daniyar to anyone.Egle
I needed to get in for an emergency check-up the day after Christmas. I had never gone here before and they were able to accommodate me that same day around my work schedule! They even called me to see if I could come in earlier since they had a cancellation since they knew I was in pain. They were very quick and thorough with my appointment and made me feel very welcome. Their office is beautiful as well and their reception desk is incredibly nice – I would highly recommend making this your dentist of choice!Katie
I’m somewhat new to the area and one day while at work during lunch, out of the blue my crown breaks and is poking my toung when I talked, and it hurt. I got on my phone and this dentist office was closest to where I worked. Called them and they got me in within 30 minutes. Checked me out, told me I would need a new crown and ground off the part that was irritating my toung. I was back to work in less than an hour. I have been getting all of my toothy needs there ever since. The staff is professional as well as pleasant and they care about my health and well being. By the way…I’ve never waited longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room. You all are A+ in my book.Terry

My problem was rather complex and on the top of everything it involved a lot of paperwork. But it seems nothing is too hard for the doctor with his supreme skills, knowledge and courteous approach. All treatment turned out to be quite a lot of fun, contrary to what I was expecting.Will G.
.. I must say I enjoy coming to see Dr. D. because he and his team make me feel so comfortable and treat me very special way while staying on top of things. My whole family has been very happy with Dr. D. !!Brigitte
I felt that they really valued my health and happiness because they followed up even after my appointment just to check up on me. It was such a nice gesture that made a huge difference. The office was very easy to locate. I didn’t have any trouble finding it at all. I’ve already told my friends and family about the fantastic experience I had there. The doctor and his staff are great!Michelle
