We know that going to the dentist sometimes can be overwhelming and let’s face the facts, most people don’t look forward to it. However, there have been dramatic improvements in dentistry and the technology we use to treat our patients that allows us to provide excellent care and a high level of comfort.
When you come into our office, our primary goal is to help you be as relaxed as possible and to relieve any anxiety you may have. We offer nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” as some call it to help calm those dental office jitters and make your experience a pleasant one.
Exams and checkups are more important than ever and can save you money over the long haul. Many of the energy drinks we have today have acid in them that can erode away our enamel not to mention all the effects that sugar has on our teeth. If you end up waiting to long on those check-ups and exams, it could cost you more as problems can become bigger ones if left undetected for a long time. Call our office today and get that check-up scheduled to maintain your oral health.
Information and Videos
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that affects the way you breathe when you are sleeping. When your sleep apnea is untreated, your breathing is interrupted or becomes very shallow while you are trying to sleep. These episodes can last between 10 and 20 seconds and in some severe cases, even longer, and can occur up to hundreds of times in a single night. They also may include gasping for breath or choking. Restful and healthy sleep becomes impossible. Sleep disordered breathing can affect every part of your life. It impairs memory and causes you to lose concentration. It puts strain on your body, especially your cardio vascular system and can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. Sleep apnea can slow your reaction time behind the steering wheel. It can shorten your temper, your attention span and even your life. If you snore at night and feel exhausted all day, you might have sleep apnea. To be sure, you need to have a sleep study done and get a diagnosis from a certified sleep doctor. If you need help in taking the next step to getting a restful and restorative nights sleep, call our office today…you will be glad you did.
