If you’re missing a tooth and considering various teeth replacement options, dental implants are today’s golden standard. In addition to restoring your smile and promoting jaw and gum health, implant teeth look, feel, and function like natural teeth. One of the most significant advantages of dental implants is their permanent quality. We surgically place implants in the jawbone, below the gum line, and the titanium integrates with the bone through a process called osseointegration. When it comes to tooth replacement options, the unique ability that bone has to fuse with an artificial material ensures an unmatched stability.
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.
People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tongue is sucked against the back of the throat. This blocks the upper airway and airflow stops. When the oxygen level in the brain becomes low enough, the sleeper partially awakens, the obstruction in the throat clears, and the flow of air starts again, usually with a loud gasp. Repeated cycles of decreased oxygenation lead to very serious cardiovascular problems. Additionally, these individuals suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, and loss of concentration.
