Preventive Dentistry & Gum Disease

Preventive Dental Care Traverse City MI
Gum Disease Leads to Lost Teeth
Many people assume that tooth loss is due to decay. But gum disease is the real primary cause. The symptoms, which include bleeding gums when you brush or floss as well as loose or shifting teeth, can be completely unnoticeable right up until you lose your teeth. If you’ve been told you need gum surgery, you will be glad to know that it’s possible to control gum disease with a variety of non-surgical methods.

Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment

Sleep Apnea Dental Treatment Traverse City MI

Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment
Sleep Disorder Dentist Traverse City MI
Snoring, breaks in breathing while sleeping, and excessive exhaustion during the day are all signs that you or a loved one may suffer from sleep apnea. Apnea conditions vary in severity but may pose a threat to your overall health.

The most common treatment for sleep apnea involves the CPAP device. This machine pumps a continuous stream of air into the patient’s nose or mouth throughout the night via a mask connected by hoses.

Unfortunately, most people find the CPAP to be extremely uncomfortable, so they stop using the device, continuing to suffer with the effects of their breathing problem. If you have sleep apnea and can’t tolerate or are frustrated with your CPAP, we offer treatment using the latest advances in modern dentistry.

Oral appliances are small acrylic devices that fit over the upper and lower teeth similar to an orthodontic retainer or mouthguard. They gently realign your tongue and jaw to open your airway and allow more air to move into your lungs as you sleep. They are easy to place and remove, easy to clean, and convenient for travel. These have been successful for over 90% of the patients who use them and are an alternative to CPAP machines. If you snore or a physician has diagnosed you with sleep apnea, give us a call today.

General Dentistry

Adult Dentistry Traverse City MI

The Importance of Hygiene Visits
Plaque is sticky and accumulates in all the hard-to-reach places in your mouth. No matter how attentive you are to brushing and flossing, some bit of plaque remains, developing into even more difficult-to-remove tartar. Tartar deposits form not only on the surface of teeth but below the gumline. If not removed, excess tartar can lead to gum disease, which in turn can develop into more serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. A dental hygienist can see and remove the plaque and tartar that lurks around your teeth and below your gumline. Visiting your hygienist is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
