Technology & Services
Implementing high-quality technology, most of our dental procedures can be done in one of our three locations, and many of our treatments often can be performed by our experienced dentists in one visit! We have the ability to do more complex cases in the office without sending out to a lab or other specialist.
The General Dentistry services we offer include:
- Crowns- A dental crown is an artificial tooth that, using CEREC technology, is a one-visit procedure that can cover imperfections in your smile or can serve as a base for dentures or other apparatus.
- Fillings- We use natural-colored resin to handle any tooth decay. These fillings look just like your tooth and prevents you from suffering from any other decay in that tooth. They are also much safer than the metal fillings used in the past.
- Bonding- When you have a tooth that is chipped, choose to use dental bonding to repair it. Dental bonding is simply putty that bonds to your tooth and then is shaped to repair the tooth.
- Hygiene- Your oral health is important to us, so we do a variety of services to help ensure you have a bright, clean, healthy smile. We offer regular teeth cleaning, and we also instruct you and your loved ones on proper dental hygiene and oral health.
- Sealants- One of the best ways to encourage dental hygiene and good oral health is to have dental sealant put on your teeth. This sealant is like a “varnish” painted onto your teeth that gives them an extra protection against decay.
How is it treated?
The treatment of choice is a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. CPAP machines gently blow air into your airway to keep it open and unobstructed while you sleep. However, treatments can sometimes be as simple as wearing a mouthguard to bed to reposition your jaw.
What happens if I choose not to treat it?
Leaving sleep apnea untreated is not recommended. It can lead to many other health complications such as:
- high blood pressure
- heart failure
- worsening of ADHD
- reduced performance in everyday tasks
