We are constantly learning new ways to improve our practice and the things we can offer to you. One important change is in the fight against tooth decay. We now know that cavities, or dental caries, can be prevented and even reversed if given the right set of circumstances. Our team has developed a program that would allow our patients at moderate to high risk for decay to benefit from the new knowledge that is available. Our Cavity Prevention Program will provide education on what causes you to develop cavities and what you can do to lower your decay rate. Some of the things that we will evaluate with you will be your saliva flow, saliva pH, sugar intake, snack frequency and timing, and food consistency. We will be able to supply you with the best toothpaste available to re-mineralize teeth, as well as a list of products that will help cut down on your decay rate. Then we will follow up with a second appointment to assess how well you are doing with the program. Our goal is to decrease your decay rate over the years following the program, and to help you utilize it for maximum health now and throughout your lifetime.

Our dental team has developed a program that addresses the oral health of children beginning at one year of age. We strongly believe in the importance of dental health at every age. We feel that spending time discussing your young child’s dental needs is extremely valuable. The appointments are short and inexpensive. However, the information you will receive will start your child on a lifetime of optimal oral health. When your child is one year of age or older, call us and we will work together to design a plan to insure the best possible oral health for your child.
Are you tired, stressed out and moody because of interrupted sleep? Sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing stops for periods of 10 seconds or longer, can interrupt the deep sleep that makes you feel rested.
When you stop breathing during sleep for 10 or more seconds, you have “apnea.” OSA, or obstructive sleep apnea, is one type of sleep apnea. Lack of adequate breath during sleep reduces your airflow, causing your brain to tell your body to wake up and breathe. In some cases, this causes you to only move into a lighter stage of sleep, while other times, you wake completely.
Many factors may contribute to airway blockage, from the size of passages and oral or airway structures, to swelling of passageways or position of the tongue. Disrupted deep sleep is dangerous and can affect your mood, your health and cause daytime sleepiness. The added stress and fatigue can cause lack of concentration, loss of memory and accidents in the workplace or while driving. Other health risks include high blood pressure and heart problems, and even a risk of premature death. Your sleep apnea may cause you to snore, disturbing your sleeping partner’s rest too.
A few tests can determine whether you suffer from OSA, and non-surgical therapies may alleviate your problem. Some patients may now wear dental appliances that reposition the tongue or mandible (lower jawbone). A Swedish study showed that the anterior mandibular positioning dental device (AMP) is actually more effective than surgical therapies. The same study stated that adverse health effects and appliance repairs were rare.
According to experts, sleep apnea is an under-diagnosed condition and more men than women suffer. If your sleeping partner says you snore or stop breathing while asleep, or if you experience daytime sleepiness, contact us for a consultation. A sleep apnea device may improve your quality of life. It’s just another way Dr. Bruce Sexton can help you smile!
