Cleaning & Consultation
We all know by now that good oral hygiene not only keeps your teeth looking clean and shiny, but that it's also essential to your overall health. Poor dental hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.
That's why dentists recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally twice a year. Teeth cleaning and dental treatment are the removal of dental plaque and tartar in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. The average dental cleaning is a routine procedure that is rarely painful and takes 30 to 45 minutes.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. Composite fillings are made from resins that are matched to your tooth's color - so they become invisible when applied during a dental treatment.
Composite fillings also provide an excellent seal on the affected area, so that tooth decay can be prevented. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Have you or your partner noticed a difficulty in breathing while you sleep? You may have a common sleep disorder called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is when you have breathing pauses while you sleep, followed by an abrupt choking or "snoring" sound. This ongoing condition, when not treated, can lead to a low quality of sleep and leave you tired throughout the day.
Certain devices can assist with the symptoms of sleep apnea. Consult with the dental experts at Island Dental Group to see if am Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure, small single-use devices for your nostrils, is the best alternative for you.
