Hygiene Visits are Necessary for Good Health!
We recommend regular teeth cleaning by our professional hygienists for overall good health. Plaque can build up in hard-to-reach areas, and after it hardens into tartar, daily brushing cannot remove it. If it gathers below the gumline, you will have an additional problem. Periodontal (gum) disease will result, and advanced cases of infected gums have a contributing effect to heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Medical research has proven the link between infected gums and these serious health conditions. Please take our recommendation seriously to stay healthy!
No longer does a tooth with root problems need to be extracted. It is now
known that it is better to save a tooth than extract it to avoid problems

During root canal therapy, the pulp chamber of a tooth is removed and replaced with a special filling material – not the same type of filling as for cavities. It is packed within the tooth to save and restore it. A crown may be placed over the tooth as well, to give added strength.

This problem results in loud, incessant snoring or interrupted breathing
while sleeping due to the airway being obstructed. If you have been
diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may have already been fitted with a CPAP
device. This machine pumps air through a mask that fits over the nose and
mouth to maintain a flow of air into the lungs.
Although it works well for breathing and snoring problems, the mask for the CPAP machine may be uncomfortable to wear all night. As a result, patients stop wearing the mask and the problem recurs.
Let us introduce to you a small, comfortable acrylic device that fits over upper and lower teeth. It is similar to a retainer or mouthguard and gently repositions your jaw and tongue to keep the airway open for continual, easy breathing. It's a cinch to insert and remove, no fuss to clean, and highly portable for traveling. More than 90% of patients who use this device have reported success in comfort and continual breathing. Please give us a call today so you can get the restful sleep you need.
Our teeth develop different problems as we age, just as our bodies do.
Fillings may crack and need to be replaced to avoid cavities setting in
under the restoration. The necessary flow of saliva through the mouth can
be reduced because of certain medications. Teeth often become stained or
yellowed due to years of consumption of certain foods or caffeine and
tobacco products. Gum disease, a serious problem in seniors, needs
With regular check-ups, we can stay on top of these situations. Continue or improve proper daily dental care and healthy food choices to help keep your teeth in good condition. If you ever experience bleeding gums or loose teeth, please contact us immediately.
