North Attleborough Sleep Apnea

Snoring

When it comes to dental care and dental health, people very often think of their teeth and gums. While taking care of your teeth and gums is an important thing to keep in mind and is definitely something that your dentist also looks to take care of, there are plenty of other mouth-related issues that your dentist can help you with. Here at Advanced Dental Care our dentist here in North Attleborough can provide you with a variety of oral procedures and therapies, including treatment for snoring, loud breathing, and sleep apnea issues.

You may not realize that snoring or sleep apnea is related to dental health. Our dentist in Attleborough at Advanced Dental Care, Dr. Arkady Naiman, is well acquainted with the teeth, gums, mouth, jaw and nasal cavities. This is what makes him, or any dentist, qualified to assist patients when it comes to sleeping problems such as snoring or sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a chronic, ongoing condition that can often disrupt your sleep and disrupt the sleep of others. It is a disorder in which there are one or more pauses between breaths. Sleep apnea can also refer to shallow breathing while sleeping. This sort of behavior can unsettle others around you, as you may appear not to be breathing or not breathing sufficiently. This condition can significantly interrupt your sleep since these breaths can move you out of a deep sleep and into a shallow sleep, leaving you feeling tired upon waking up. Snoring can also be an issue for individuals, often disturbing the sleeper and those around them. When it comes to treating either of these troublesome conditions, oral appliances can be prescribed and used to alleviate some of the issues involved.

If you suffer from either snoring or sleep apnea and are tired of the effects, then don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment and visit us to discuss treatment options. Here at Advanced Dental Care in Attleborough, our dentist can provide you with oral appliances that are made to fit your mouth specifically and lessen the effects of either sleep apnea or snoring.

Are you looking for an easy way to help prevent your teeth from decaying and the problems that result from it? If so, you should consider visiting our North Attleborough dental office, Advanced Dental Care, for a fluoride treatment. Fluoride-containing compounds are known and recognized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as beneficial for oral health and an excellent deterrent for tooth decay. Tooth decay is definitely an oral health issue that you want to avoid; it can lead to uncomfortable and sometimes painful, dental cavities that will need to be repaired by a dental filling, or may lead to a tooth extraction.

Brushing your teeth regularly, flossing, and avoiding sticky, sugary foods are good ways to help prevent tooth decay and cavities, but professional cleanings and fluoride treatments from at our North Attleborough dental office will also help exponentially. A fluoride treatment at Advanced Dental Care contains much more fluoride than you would have in an over-the-counter mouthwash, or regular toothpaste, which is why it is necessary to come into our North Attleborough dental office for the treatment. We typically administer the fluoride treatment as a gel or foam inside a mouth guard that sits in your mouth for a designated amount of time. If our dentist feels that you may need extra doses of fluoride in between visits to Advanced Dental Care, we can prescribe fluoride supplements for you to take at home.

If you have any questions about the benefits of fluoride treatments or how fluoride treatments work at our North Attleborough dental office, do not hesitate to call Advanced Dental Care to voice any questions or concerns. Our helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff is here to help you. You may also choose to send us a message using the Contact Us form located on our practice’s website. If you are ready to schedule an appointment for a fluoride treatment or any other dental procedure that you may need, feel free to contact us by phone or on our website at your soonest convenience to request an appointment time. We hope to see you soon for your next visit at Advanced Dental Care.

When a cavity reaches all the way to the pulp, often due to neglect, root canal treatment or endodontic therapy will be necessary. However, if you schedule regular cleanings and checkups at Advanced Dental Care, our general dentists can often prevent and detect problems early, potentially before decay reaches the nerve of the tooth. In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably have that tooth extracted to avoid it infecting other teeth or causing gum damage. However, with root canal treatment performed by the North Attleboro endodontists at Advanced Dental Care, you can now save your natural teeth even from extreme decay and infection.

Root Canal Therapy North Attleborough

When a tooth is weakened from a crack or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp, causing an infection inside the tooth. When left without treatment, the infection can extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone. This is called an abscess, which causes pulp tissue to die. In these cases, the tooth often becomes sensitive to temperature changes, causes pain and gum swelling. Over time, this infection can injure your jawbone and negatively affect your overall health.

Treatment for an infected pulp will require you to visit our endodontist, a dentist who specializes in problems of the pulp. During root canal therapy with our North Attleboro dentists, the disease pulp will be removed and the root canals will be cleaned and sealed to avoid reinfection. A dental crown will be placed over the treated tooth to add support to the remaining tooth structure. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups at Advanced Dental Care, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

If you’re experiencing any of the common symptoms associated with a root canal as mentioned above, please contact Advanced Dental Care in North Attleborough for an appointment.

Brushing and flossing your teeth not only helps them stay whiter, but it is the best defense against tooth cavities and other forms of tooth decay. Tooth decay, also called cavities, are some of the common reasons our patients at Advanced Dental Care experience toothaches and oral pain. Foods that are rich in sugar and carbohydrates commonly destroy the tooth enamel and inner dentin when left in your mouth. But nightly brushing and flossing keeps these bacteria from forming plaque on your tooth enamel. When you come to visit North Attleboro general dentist, Dr. Naiman at Advanced Dental Care, he will gladly go over proper brushing and flossing techniques so that you and your children can avoid cavities.

For some children, Dr. Naiman may recommend dental sealants or varnishes to prevent cavities from forming. The grooves and depressions that form the chewing surfaces of back teeth are extremely difficult to clean or bacteria and food debris, particularly for children who are inexperienced in tooth brushing and flossing. Nearly all of the cavities our North Attleboro dentist diagnoses in school-aged children are a result of trapped food on the back teeth. A sealant is a resin that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, molars, or premolars. After bonding into the grooves of these teeth, sealants create a protective barrier around the tooth, preventing plaque and acid from deteriorating the enamel.

If your child has had several cavities, we highly recommend that you visit Advanced Dental Care to speak with Dr. Naiman about dental sealants. This preventive procedure can protect your child’s teeth for many years. If you child is complaining about localized tooth pain or has unusual sensitivity to hot or cold foods, bring them to see North Attlebor family dentist, Dr. Naiman, as they may have a cavity.
