Additional Care

Sedation Dentistry

It’s not uncommon for patients to experience anxiety or dread when they have to visit a dentist. In fact, a significant number of Calgarians miss out on essential dental care due to these fears. At Braeside Dental Centre, Dr. Manish Goel and Dr. Shane Gock provide a variety of sedation “sleep” dentistry techniques, such as laughing gas and oral sedation, to help patients feel at ease and comfortable during various treatments, including basic cosmetic bonding or complete smile makeovers.

It’s crucial to understand that dental emergencies can be serious and should not be ignored.

At Braeside Dental Centre, we remain prepared to assist with any dental emergency promptly.

Sleep Apnea

At the Braeside Dental Centre, we provide personalized snore guards and nightguards to ensure that your breathing passages remain unobstructed, allowing for a smooth flow of air. These unique appliances function by delicately moving the lower jaw forward, which tautens the soft tissues of the airway and minimizes the likelihood of muscles and other soft oral tissues obstructing the normal airflow during sleep. CPAP machines are the recommended and most effective treatment for sleep apnea, but some patients are not able to tolerate the noisy equipment and cumbersome apparatus that is worn during sleep. Our custom-made oral appliances resemble orthodontic retainers, offering a comfortable alternative for patients or as an additional treatment to be used in conjunction with CPAP therapy. Many patients opt to use an oral appliance while travelling to avoid transporting their CPAP machine. After a thorough evaluation of your needs, our dentist will assist you in selecting the ideal option and developing a tailored treatment plan.

TMJ Treatment

Advanced treatment options are offered by Dr. Manish Goel and Dr. Shane Gock to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ Disorder. The symptoms of this disorder may include headaches, facial pain, clicking or popping of the jaw, difficulty opening and closing the mouth, neck, back, and shoulder pain, and even numbness in the arms or fingers.
TMJ Disorder is caused by issues with the temporomandibular joint, located between the upper and lower jaw. Arthritis, teeth clenching, an unaligned bite, or overuse of the joint can all contribute to TMJ Disorder. This condition can cause severe discomfort and interfere with daily life.
At Braeside Dental Centre, skilled dentists can evaluate your symptoms to determine if TMJ Disorder is the culprit. Following that, Dr. Manish Goel and Dr. Shane Gock can develop a personalized treatment plan that aims to reduce the effects of TMJ Disorder and alleviate the symptoms. Various treatment options are available, such as medication, night guards, jaw and bite therapy, restorative dentistry, dental surgery, and botulinum toxin injections (BOTOX®/XEOMIN®).

Snore Guards and Night Guards

At Braeside Dental Centre, we understand that obstructive sleep apnea is a common disorder that can cause significant health risks and have a negative impact on daily life. This condition is characterized by a narrowing or total blockage of air through breathing passages during sleep, which can lead to snoring, teeth grinding and pauses in breathing that last for 10 seconds or more. These breathing pauses can occur hundreds of times during the night and cause a range of health problems. Many people with sleep apnea are not even aware of the problem, as it often goes unnoticed until someone else brings it to their attention. Fortunately, effective treatment options are available to reduce the many symptoms and health risks associated with sleep apnea. Our experienced team can help determine the right treatment plan to address your sleep apnea and improve your quality of life.

Laser Dentistry

The application of laser technology in dentistry has brought about a significant transformation in various dental treatments, ensuring enhanced safety, speed, and comfort. Dr. Shane Gock and Dr. Manish Goel are among the practitioners who employ advanced laser technology to make patients’ visits as enjoyable and convenient as possible.
Laser dental techniques work by directing concentrated beams of laser energy to reduce bleeding, swelling, and the time required for recovery. Soft tissue lasers create a secure seal around blood vessels and nerve endings, resulting in a virtually painless experience after the procedure. Remarkably, laser dentistry is so gentle and accurate that patients usually do not experience any discomfort during the treatment itself.
Our dental clinic, Braeside Dental Centre, uses laser dentistry for treating gum disease, gum lifting, and detecting cavities.
