With Spring right around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about how your beautiful smile will shine in those graduation pictures and how you'll feel attending all your spring weddings and parties. A big question we get more frequently this time of year is "What are my options for teeth whitening?" or "What are your recommendations for teeth whitening?" Here's the podcast episode I recorded regarding teeth whitening options.
What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a condition where you momentarily stop breathing while you're asleep. These episodes last for several seconds many times each hour, every night that you're asleep. What is the treatment for sleep apnea? The most common treatment for sleep apnea is called CPAP- Continuous Positive Air Pressure. You wear a mask connected to a machine that blows air down your nostrils all night, like being connected to a vacuum cleaner in reverse all night. But... did you know there is another solution? And Great Lakes Dentistry can make you an appliance that REPLACES your CPAP!
SNORING ISN'T JUST ANNOYING OSA SymptomsSnoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are signs you might not be getting the air your body needs while you sleep. Leaving sleep apnea untreated is like gambling with your life every night. Snoring is the alarm to let you know something is wrong, like your smoke alarm in your house. Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause many dangerous medical issues, and even death. Each hour, your body stops breathing, slowly suffocating the body’s cells and depriving them of oxygen. Eventually, the cells become permanently damaged due to the lack of oxygen.
