• Come meet Dr. Z!

    Hello everyone!

    I welcome you to Dental Heights, a family owned and operated general dental practice. My name is Dr. Zishan Bader DDS. We established this office in the summer of 2013 primarily to give the surrounding residents an affordable and up to date dental office for their family’s needs. I must tell you that these past few years have been a blast! We have made so many new friends through the many patients that have walked through our doors. Ive always emphazed a friendly professional environment where our patients feel like they are with those who truly care about the services provided.

    A little history on myself:

    I went to Lockport Township High School, attended undergrad and dental school at the University of Detroit-Mercy and graduated in May 2009. Ever since, Ive worked tirelessly on keeping myself updated on the latest technology, techniques, and other aspects of dentistry to give true justice to my patient’s experiences with me. I have been blessed to work alongside two great mentors– Dr. Alamdar (my father) & Dr. Shafeeq (my uncle) whom I have learned a great deal from.

    I welcome you to come by and meet me personally & my wonderful staff. I can give you a tour of my office and insight on the types of treatments we offer here at Dental Heights!

  • How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

    bloomingdale dental office Emergencies, by their very nature, are unexpected. After all, if you could anticipate every great tragedy in your life, an emergency would never happen. But while you can’t always be aware of an accident before it happens, you can and should be prepared to deal with a variety of emergencies in your life—in particular, what to do in the event of a dental emergency. The following tips will help minimize discomfort and permanent damage while you wait for your Bloomingdale dental office to open in the morning.

    Knocked-Out Adult Tooth

    For a knocked-out permanent tooth, it’s important that you keep the tooth moist at all times. Try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place the tooth in a glass of milk or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. You can also hold the tooth between your cheek and gums to keep it moist and protected until your dentist can see you.

    Cracked Tooth

    If you crack a tooth, rinse your mouth immediately with warm water to clean the area. Apply a cold compress on the face to keep any swelling down and take aspirin for pain management. Do not eat or drink anything but water until you can be seen by your dentist in the morning. Depending on the extent of the crack and the condition of the surrounding teeth, your dentist may recommend a dental bridge or a permanent dental implant.

    Severe Toothaches

    For severe toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out and gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth. If the toothache persists, alternate cold and hot compresses on the face where the toothache is originating and make an emergency appointment with a dental office in Bloomingdale.
