Q: Are you accepting new patients?
  We are always happy to accept new patients into our family of patients.



Q: Do you see children?
We love children of all ages. About 1/3 of our patients are under age of 18 years old.
Precious Dental Care offers Oral Conscious Sedation allowing your kids to be sedated just enough to reduce the dental anxiety & create a comfortable experience for kids.

Q: When should I take my child to the dentist?
First visit by first birthday" sums it up. Your child should visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between six and twelve months of age. An early examination and preventive care at Precious Dental Care will protect your child's smile now and in the future.

Dr. Vaishali offers Pediatric Oral Concious Sedation.



Q: Do you offer emergency care?
Yes! we place special priority with all emergency needs. Should a dental emergency arise, call the office at (510) 790-7900 and we will make every effort to attend to your need quickly.

Q: Do you offer flexible appointments?
Yes, in addition to regular office hours. We also offer early and late appointments.





Q: How do I change or cancel an appointment?
We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please give us 24 hours notice in advance. This courtesy on your part makes it possible for us to give your appointment to another patient.



Q: How do I avoid getting Cavities?
The best way to avoid cavities is by eating right, brushing with a fluoridated toothpaste, flossing daily and visiting your dentist every six months. Children and some adults can benefit by having Sealants placed.

Q: Why does the Floss shred and get caught in my teeth?
Floss can shred if the contact between the teeth is tight or there is a rough or broken surface between the teeth.




Q: Do you use nitrous oxide?
Yes. We have it available for those patients who request it either for anxiety or to help them relax more during treatment. Nitrous offers a quick and safe way for patients to relax during long treatments especially.





Q: What is Root Canal?
Root Canal (RCT) is a method of saving a tooth by cleaning out a damaged nerve and filling in the resulting chamber.





Q: How does Invisalign work?

Dr. Vaishali takes impressions of the teeth and sends these models to the maker of Invisalign. The company uses a computer-generated simulation of the desired movement of the teeth to custom-make the aligners for each patient. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks.

The aligners are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing, so unlike people who wear braces, Invisalign-wearers aren't restricted from eating hard or chewy foods. But they still must visit their orthodontist every six weeks during treatment to ensure proper progress.

Q: What can I do to protect my child's teeth during sporting events?

Soft plastic mouthguards can be used to protect a child's teeth, lips, cheeks and gums from sport related injuries. A custom-fitted mouthguard developed by a pediatric dentist will protect your child from injuries to the teeth, face and even provide protection from severe injuries to the head.


Q: How should I brush?

Brushing removes plaque and food particles from the inner, outer and biting surfaces of your teeth.

Here is one method of removing plaque:
1. Place the head of your toothbrush against your teeth, then tilt the bristle tips to a 45 degree angle against the gumline. Move the brush in small circular movements, several times, on all the surfaces of every tooth.
2. Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower, keeping the bristles angled against the gumline.
3. Use the same method on the inside surfaces of all your teeth.
4. Brush the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
5. To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several small circular strokes with the toe (the front part) of the brush.
6. Brushing your tongue will help freshen your breath and will clean your mouth by removing bacteria.

Q: What if I don't treat my Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay can lead to fillings, crowns or inlays. If tooth decay is not treated, the nerve of the tooth can become infected and die, causing an abscess. This may then need root canal treatment. Gum disease is the largest cause of tooth loss in adults. Gum disease is a treatable, preventable condition and can be kept under control with regular check-ups, preventing further problems. If teeth are lost, it may be necessary to fill the gaps with bridges, dentures or implants.

Q: How do I know if I have gum disease?

Gum disease (gingivitis) will show itself as red, swollen gums that bleed when brushed or flossed. Many people are alarmed when they notice this bleeding and will then brush more gently, if at all. It is important that you continue to clean regularly and firmly in order to fight the condition.

What are the main reasons for taking wisdom teeth out?

· When it is clear that the wisdom teeth will not be able to come through into a useful position because there is not enough room, and they are also causing some pain or discomfort.

· If they have only partly come through and are decayed – such teeth will often be more likely to decay as it will be difficult to clean them as thoroughly as your other teeth.

· If the wisdom tooth is causing a cleaning problem and has no real use.

· If the wisdom tooth starts to ‘over-grow’. This often happens if the lower one has already been removed or is impacted and cannot come through, and the upper one has no tooth to bite against. The upper one will come down too far, looking for a tooth to make contact with.

· If they are painful.
