When Was Your Last Routine Cleaning in Danville Dental Services?
If your answer is “more than six months ago,” it’s time to schedule another! Scheduling regular cleanings is important because:
- It helps prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
- Regular cleanings also allow your dentist to identify and address potential dental issues in their earliest stages, which can save you time, money, and discomfort in the long run.
- Routine cleanings can help improve your overall oral health, freshen your breath, and leave your teeth looking and feeling clean and shiny.
What Can I Expect During A Cleaning?
During a routine teeth cleaning appointment, you can expect a thorough oral health examination, including checking for signs of decay, gum disease, and other issues. The dental hygienist will begin by removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and below the gum line using a scaler device. Although you may hear scraping sounds, the process is generally painless.
After scaling, your hygienist will polish your teeth with a gritty toothpaste to remove remaining debris and make them shiny. The hygienist will then floss between your teeth before applying a fluoride treatment, which helps protect against cavities until your next cleaning. We may also take X-rays to evaluate your overall dental health, especially below the gum line, and identify any problems in their earliest stages.
Are You Struggling With Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common condition where a person’s breathing stops briefly during the night, often up to hundreds of times. This can be dangerous if left untreated as it deprives the brain of oxygen. There are three main types of sleep apnea:
- Obstructive sleep apnea: This type of apnea occurs when there is a blockage in the airway, typically when the soft tissue in the back of the throat relaxes and collapses during sleep.
- Central sleep apnea: Central apnea occurs when the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe during sleep.
- Complex sleep apnea: Complex sleep apnea develops in patients with both OSA and central sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea symptoms include loud snoring, repeated pauses in breathing during sleep, sore throat in the morning, daytime fatigue, waking up in the middle of the night, morning headaches, insomnia, waking up with a gasping sensation, mood changes, and a brain fog. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
How We Can Help
Dental devices such as Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs) resemble sports mouth guards and are designed to be worn over the upper and lower dental arches. The MADs work by pushing the lower jaw slightly forward to prevent the soft tissue at the back of the throat from collapsing and obstructing the airway. Get fitted for a MAD device at Diablo Dental Group in Danville!
