Have you been told that your breathing is interrupted during
sleep? Do you snore loudly or fall asleep during the day?
You may be aware you have sleep apnea and already use the
CPAP device to alleviate your breathing problem. This device
pumps air into a patient’s lungs through a mask they wear
that fits over the nose and mouth. Many people find wearing
the bulky mask each night very uncomfortable, so they stop
We are pleased to be able to offer our patients a new option
with an oral appliance. It is a small acrylic device that
fits over upper and lower teeth. It gently realigns both the
jaw and tongue to allow air to flow into the lungs while you
sleep. It is easy to insert, remove, and clean, and it is
easy to transport during travel. There is a 90% success rate
with users so please give us a call if you have been
diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Visits are Necessary
We provide the very best care for adults and encourage them
to have regular check-ups and have their teeth cleaned by
our professional hygienist. Over time plaque can build up
and harden into tartar which can lead to tooth decay and
gum infection. A thorough cleaning by our hygienist will not
only help keep your teeth healthy, but add to your overall
good health. Recent medical research has identified a link
between advanced gum disease and serious health problems
like diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Having your teeth
cleaned on a regular basis goes beyond keeping your teeth
and gums healthy – it helps in preventing serious health
Care For Seniors
Not only do our bodies change as we age, but so do our teeth
and gums. There are years of wear and tear on our teeth that
can weaken or crack fillings; the residue from tobacco, tea,
or coffee consumption darkens teeth; and possible plaque
build-up can lead to bigger health problems. If you take
certain medications on a regular basis your saliva flow may
be greatly reduced which affects the health of your teeth.
We have products to help this side effect. It is important
to have regular check-ups to ensure gum disease or root
decay has not formed. We advise our seniors if their teeth
bleed easily from brushing or flossing or start to loosen,
to contact us immediately.
– Proper Bite Alignment Alleviates Aches and Pain!
Dental malocclusion (when your bite does not come together
as it should) can be the reason for reoccurring headaches,
pain in your neck and shoulders, and aching or popping jaws.
If your dental arches do not meet properly, tension will
occur in the jaw and related muscles. We can restore your
bite to the correct position and alleviate aches and pain.
This very technical procedure is a full mouth rehabilitation
and can bring a new quality to your life. Let us discuss
with you the benefits of this technique.
Saving a Tooth from Extraction
Previously, having a damaged or infected tooth used to mean
extraction. But with modern techniques in root canal therapy
that has changed. In this procedure, a tooth is kept intact
by removing the pulp within the tooth and replacing it with
filling material. When root canals were first performed,
they were painful and as a result it was a procedure that
patients avoided. But with today’s anesthetics and
technology, they are often painless.
Are You Pre-Diabetic or

and diabetes? And that diabetes can worsen gum disease or
