Teeth cleaning is part of your oral hygiene and it involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. It is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned, at least once every 6 months, to make sure our mouth is the healthiest. More frequent cleanings, dental x-rays and examinations may be necessary during the treatment of dental and other oral disorders. Routine examination of the teeth is recommended at least every year.
Tooth-colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings
Dental bonding is a dental procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) will be applied and harden with a special light. This ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance of the teeth.
In dentistry, an inlay is a lab fabricated restoration (filling) consisting of a solid substance (as gold or porcelain) fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.
Dental sealants are a dental treatment consisting of applying a plastic material to one or more teeth, for the intended purpose of preventing dental caries (cavities) or other forms of tooth decay. After curing, the plastic becomes a hard, thin layer covering the treated portions of the tooth.
Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that occurs when your muscles relax during sleep, allowing soft tissue to collapse and block the airway. As a result, repeated breathing pauses occur, which often reduce your oxygen levels. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. An oral appliance is worn in the mouth only while you sleep and fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. Oral appliances support your jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway.
