Dental Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office in Monterey, CA at 831-372-2882.

Contrary to their name, wisdom teeth do not provide wisdom. Instead, they often cause dental problems in adolescents and adults. Most people simply don’t have enough room to accommodate the wisdom teeth or third molars. As a result, wisdom teeth often become embedded in gum or bone tissue, which causes pain and pressure. Infection can also occur, which often leads to damage the jawbone and adjacent teeth. In rare circumstances, wisdom teeth develop into cysts or tumors,  requiring more extensive surgery. If wisdom teeth do erupt, they typically cause crowding and orthodontic relapse.  Dr. Bhaskar recommends an evaluation of wisdom teeth during the teenage years to for ideal treatment timing and reduction of risk.   Call our office for a consultation: 831-372-2882.

Dr. Bhaskar has performed fairly extensive oral surgery on my husband, Paul, over the last couple of years, with a perfect outcome. Dr. Bhaskar's competence, demeanor and attentiveness made us feel calm and well cared for. Paul had multiple issues that needed to be addressed over a lengthy period of time, under the care of multiple professionals. Dr. Bhaskar communicated with the other dental experts and together they planned for excellent, sequential, efficient care. We greatly appreciate the care received by Dr. Bhaskar and his skilled staff, and highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Bhaskar.

The reason why I give this practice a five star review is because Dr. Bhaskar is one of the best oral surgeons. My whole experience was great. The receptionist was very friendly and the assistants made me feel at ease. After the surgery Dr. Bhaskar even called that evening to check on me. I have to admit that I was scared to have my wisdom teeth pulled but Dr. Bhaskar and his staff made it super easy and smooth!!!

Dr. Bhaskar put an implant in me quite a while ago, and I've had no problems. He also pulled the wisdom teeth on my three children. They all recovered with minimal discomfort.

I saw Dr Bhaskar for the extraction of a molar tooth. After our first meeting, we decided to place an implant at the time of the extraction. Everything went very well, no pain or problems. The crown was placed 10 weeks later and it has worked perfectly!!! I highly recommend Dr. Bhaskar.
