Fear of the dentist is very common, and many people avoid getting the dental care they need due to this anxiety. With our sedation dentistry techniques, you can feel completely at ease during your visits to the dentist. Using methods such as oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide, our dentists can perform procedures more quickly and efficiently, often minimizing the total number of appointments necessary. These sedation techniques are so effective that many patients enter a sleep like state, allowing for total comfort and relaxation throughout the entirety of treatment.
Moderate to severe snoring throughout the night may be much more than a simple inconvenience. Oftentimes, snoring is an indicator of sleep apnea—a condition that causes frequent interruptions of breath while you sleep. Many people who suffer from sleep apnea are unaware that they are losing valuable sleep and at risk for much more serious health concerns. Become familiar with the symptoms of sleep apnea so you or your loved ones can receive prompt treatment and feel well rested once again.
A clicking or popping of the jaw may indicate that you are suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Also referred to as TMD, this common condition can make opening and closing the jaw difficult or painful. When left untreated, TMD can lead to more severe symptoms and affect the head, neck, shoulders, back, and arms. By accurately diagnosing the source of your pain, our dentists can design a custom treatment plan to help relieve your symptoms.
When facial reconstruction, including procedures involving the oral cavity, is called for, a specialist is needed. Surgical procedures of the neck and head area are performed by a maxillofacial surgeon. Common maxillofacial procedures include denture-related procedures and jaw surgery.
