Sleep Apnea: It’s More Than Just A Snoring Problem

A snoring problem can make it hard for your partner to rest, and it can make you feel embarrassed. With that said, you should know that a tendency to snore may be a sign of sleep apnea, which can lead to additional problems. If you tend to feel groggy and poorly rested, even after a full night’s rest, you could be affected by this condition. Individuals with sleep apnea are having their oxygen restricted for extended periods of time. To address that restriction, your body must break your sleep cycle, causing you to “wake,” even if you do not remember waking up. This disruption to your sleep cycle means you are failing to enjoy the full health benefits we gain from resting. Your dentist can actually help you fight sleep apnea; treatment from your dentist can lead to better sleep without an uncomfortable CPAP machine. (more…)

Our office is committed to providing a caring, supportive environment for you. This can be especially important if you are someone who struggles with feelings of dental anxiety.  (more…)

Receiving Dental Implants To Support Prosthetics

How can dental implants change a person’s experience with their dental prosthetic? There are advantages to this approach to prosthetic work you can enjoy every day, as well as long-term benefits. A dental implant is put in position to act in support of your restoration. This small post,inserted into your jawbone, locks a replacement tooth into position. Because implants are made from biocompatible titanium, your bone will fuse to it, making it remarkably secure. Depending on the complexity of your case, you may be able to arrange to have your implant placement and restoration done at your dentist’s office. (more…)

Using ClearCorrect To Make Big Smile Improvements

Having straight teeth can make your smile more attractive, while also making it easier to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. If you are affected by issues with poor dental alignment, but uncomfortable at the thought of wearing braces, you can talk to your dentist about ClearCorrect. Using ClearCorrect means having a way to straighten your teeth without a conspicuous appliance. Rather than use a system of brackets and wires, you will employ a sequence of clear oral inserts. Each on you wear will bring your teeth closer to their ideal position. This can lead to a major cosmetic improvement, as well as providing some desirable oral health improvements.  (more…)

Make Arrangements To Take Home A Teeth Whitening Kit

You can remove difficult to reach staining particles, and make your smile significantly brighter! Your dentist can currently supply adult patients with dental impressions, custom whitening trays, and prescription-strength whitening agents for only $150.  (more…)
