Dr. B. Robert Meer, DMD, FAGD's Expert Contributions
  • Can a dental implant cause jaw pain?

    The implant could cause jaw pain if there's an infection around it. Your dentist can take x-rays, check in your mouth and see what's going on. READ MORE

  • Stomach pain

    Yes you should be seen ASAP. I don't know if you're having a reaction to antibiotic or some other complication but please follow up with your dentist. READ MORE

  • Pocket in my gums

    It will be very hard for you to clean back there and you can't really be sure it's clean. You can close your mouth slightly to open up space next to your cheek. You can also try using a compact brush head to reach back there. Nevertheless getting the wisdom tooth removed looks like the most predictable solution from your description. If the gums back there are inflamed / swollen due to being very difficult to clean, it will affect the oral hygiene gums around the teeth in front of it as well. READ MORE

  • Can I use mouthwash with a temporary crown?

    Yes, that is fine. READ MORE

  • What medicine is good for gum pain?

    Ibuprofen is generally good to help with swelling pain related to teeth and gums. You can also rinse with 1.5% peroxide - for example Colgate Peroxyl - to help with mouth sores. That said, you should see a dentist ASAP to address the cause. READ MORE

  • Can you smoke with braces?

    Of course you know that smoking is not good to do in general. A specific issue regarding braces is that the teeth staining will build up faster - since it is harder to keep your teeth clean with braces. Hope that makes sense. READ MORE

  • Can you have an implant without a bone graft?

    It depends on the amount and condition of the existing bone. Your implant surgeon would make a decision on that. READ MORE

  • What is the fix for loose dentures?

    Your dentist may be able to reline your dentures - depending on how loose / how much needs to be added. READ MORE

  • Can I drink beer today after a filling that I had yesterday at 4pm?

    Your filling will not be affected by having a beer. Just drink responsibly and don't use your teeth to open the can. :) READ MORE

  • How long does it take to learn to talk with dentures?

    You should return to your dentist for some adjustments as needed. If your teeth are set in the correct positions you shouldn't have any problem saying things like "sixty-six" and "fifty-five ". It is normal to need a certain amount of adjustments in the first couple of weeks. READ MORE

  • What are the problems with dentures?

    Full dentures generally have more problems with staying in place than partial dentures which anchor to existing teeth. Over time the fit of full dentures can get worse as the bone level decreases. Implant-supported dentures are an option to avoid that problem. READ MORE

  • How often is dental cleaning recommended?

    It really depends on your ability to maintain oral hygiene. Some people may need a cleaning every 3 months. Generally, adults should get their cleanings somewhere between 3 and 6 months depending on their circumstances to avoid excessive tartar build-up and gum disease. READ MORE

  • Is chlorhexidine good for gum disease?

    Chlorhexidine is helpful for treating gum disease in conjunction with scaling and root planing or other in-office treatment. It can cause teeth to stain and affect the taste, so it's not advisable in all cases. READ MORE

  • Can you get an implant without a bone graft?

    Yes, depending on the condition of the extraction site and existing bone. READ MORE

  • Is ibuprofen good for toothache?

    Ibuprofen helps decrease inflammation associated with tooth and gum pain but the tooth should be treated by a dentist ASAP. READ MORE

  • How painful is it to get a dental crown?

    It shouldn't really be painful if you get numb. You may have some pressure and discomfort around your gums for part of the procedure. READ MORE

  • Low body temp with abscess infection?

    Your body temperature doesn't sound like a concern, but you should get the abscess checked out by a dentist as soon as possible. READ MORE

  • Can a dental bridge cause tooth damage?

    Yes, a dental bridge involves cutting two teeth adjacent to the missing teeth. Implants are generally preferable given that they are much easier to clean and they don't require cutting other teeth. READ MORE

  • Is floss with fluoride good?

    There's no problem using floss with fluoride. It's not usual and the benefit above floss without fluoride is questionable. You should be getting more fluoride from your toothpaste. READ MORE

  • Is it normal for gums to hurt after a filling?

    There can be some mild aching of gums after a filling. Drilling and placing a band and wedge can irritate the gums for several days. If so you can rinse with warm salt water to decrease the inflammation. If any severe pain or swelling, you should go back and see your dentist to rule out other problems. READ MORE

Get to know Dentist Dr. B. Robert Meer, who serves patients in Herndon, Virginia.

An attentive and caring dentist, Dr. Meer is the Owner & Operator of Elden Family Dental in Herndon, Virginia, which he opened in 2009.

Committed to serving patients in the region with the utmost integrity and compassion, he gives personalized conscientious care and conservative treatment. All treatment is done by Dr. Meer, and he uses high tech equipment which enhances treatment and comfort. 

Patients have come to appreciate the personal touch applied to their entire experience, from answering the phone call to leaving with a great experience and continuing care in the years that follow. 

In regard to his educational background, Dr. Meer earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Temple University School of Dentistry in 2002. This program provided an in-depth patient treatment experience which set the stage for his dental career. 

Before opening Elden Family Dental, he practiced under a wide variety of circumstances. He began his dental career in 2002 with three years in active duty for the United States Army. Following separation from active duty in 2005, he worked in group dental practices and a public health clinic in Maryland. 

In 2008, Dr. Meer began working as an associate in Virginia and eventually established his own practice. He was able to take lessons from all of his past assignments when designing Elden Family Dental to allow for a comfortable experience with a high standard of care.

In 2021, Dr. Meer received the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) Fellowship Award. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental Continuing Education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6% of general dentists in the United States and Canada have achieved this feat, which requires over 500 credit hours of CE and passing an exam equal in difficulty to board certification.

Among his other affiliations, he is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, and the Northern Virginia Dental Society.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, treat gum disease, repair decayed teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
