Everyday we see how dentistry transforms people’s lives. While many patients just come in for their regular cleanings and exams and don’t encounter dental issues, there are patients who have conditions that cause pain or affect how they chew food. Then there are patients who wish they could change the look of their teeth and are embarrassed to smile. We are happy that we are able to use our dental skills and technology to improve their teeth, restore their dental health and boost their confidence. We’d like to introduce you to some of these patients.
One of the ways we treat temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is through the use of a night guard. Patients find relief from symptoms such as jaw, head and facial pain after wearing the night guard while they sleep. The more they wear the appliance, the better their jaw feels and functions. Since the night guard has an important job to do, we’ve included guidelines on how to care for it properly.

Our patients have found great success using a simple dental treatment to fix these common but bothersome dental conditions. Read more to find out about this procedure.
Does the very thought of going to the dentist send shivers down your spine? You may be suffering from dental anxiety or phobia. This can be caused by a traumatic dental or healthcare experience, or generalized anxiety and phobias. Some people could experience this as a slight nervousness, but for others, a trip to the dentist can be an actual nightmare that prevents them from getting appropriate treatment.
While we may be spending more time at home these days, those who suffer from sleep apnea can take advantage of this time to practice habits and activities that boost the effect of sleep apnea treatments and improve their overall health. If you or a family member suffers from loud snoring, constant waking during the night while gasping for air, and daytime fatigue, certain lifestyle changes can help boost sleep apnea treatment success. Read on to find out more.
If not treated properly, sleep apnea can cause health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, psychological disorders, and more. There are multiple treatments for sleep apnea, however, that can promote a healthier lifestyle and keep these conditions at bay. One of them is exercise.

Do you become anxious or fearful when you think about an upcoming dental appointment? Do you have a friend or loved one who has dental phobia and avoids going to the dentist? We want patients like you to know that if you or someone you know suffers from dental anxiety, there is a solution to help you have a stress-free dental appointment so you can get the dental care you need.

Our philosophy of treating each patient with respect and caring for them as a person, not just a number, is part of providing great dental care. While we utilize the latest dental technology and techniques to provide amazing results, how we treat our patients matters, too.
