Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that, if left untreated, can cause other harmful health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, or even death. Many people are unaware they have sleep apnea, but it can be diagnosed with a sleep study. Typical signs of sleep apnea can include intense snoring, breathing pauses while sleeping of up to tem seconds or more, headaches, and feeling fatigued even after getting plenty of sleep. If you or a loved one might have sleep apnea, we can help treat you. We can create a custom-made oral sleep appliance that is usually a more comfortable alternative to the CPAP. It looks and feels similar to an orthodontic retainer, and it is designed to prevent airway obstruction, minimize snoring, and allow you to get a healthier, more peaceful night’s sleep.

Endodontics & Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy may be necessary for severe cases of tooth decay. Deep cavities, injury, fracture, or gum disease can be a few potential causes of bacteria developing in the tooth chamber that might cause an infection. If your teeth become sensitive to heat or cold, you experience gum swelling or pain, or have a constant bad taste in your mouth, you may have an infection. An infected tooth will never heal on its own. Without treatment, your tooth could fall out, you could develop an abscess, and/or you may experience bone deterioration surrounding the infected tooth. As the infection worsens, it can weaken the immune system and may plague other parts of the body, potentially causing heart attack, stroke, or other serious conditions.

The good news is we can help you avoid tooth loss and further damage to your health with root canal therapy. This procedure is designed to remove the infected tissue, sterilize the nerve chamber, destroy all bacteria, and seal the nerve chamber and the tooth. After cleaning and sterilizing the infected area, we will place a custom-made crown on your tooth created to reinforce it and even improve its appearance. It should give your tooth added support while looking and feeling natural.

Periodontal Care

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the care and maintenance of the gums and other soft tissues of the mouth. Proper gum care is essential to the overall health of your teeth and mouth. It is especially important to establish good gum care routines early in life, because gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Dr. Matthews and his team always pay special attention to the gums of their patients to ensure that they are healthy, and we are vigilant in educating our valued patients on the proper ways to care for their gums.

Routine Care

While brushing and flossing at home are important in maintaining optimal oral health, regular oral exams and routine cleanings by your dentist are even more important. To prevent gum disease and tooth decay, our office utilizes advanced technology to clean your teeth and gums more thoroughly than you would at home. Our comprehensive oral exams also include oral cancer screenings. Early diagnosis and treatment of oral cancer are critical aspects to raising the chances of survival.
