What Is Advanced Dentistry?
Advanced dentistry refers to treatments that address issues impacting your oral health. It can include sleep dentistry and alleviating jaw pain and teeth grinding. The health of your teeth and gums can be affected by more than just cavities and decay. Thankfully, Dr. Hall has the solutions for your unique needs at our Manhattan, KS office.
Our Advanced Dentistry Services
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is responsible for several jaw functions. If this joint undergoes too much pressure, you may develop a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). TMD can result in painful symptoms and complications if left untreated. The experts at Downtown Dental Group offer mouthguard solutions for TMD symptoms. If you experience frequent or severe jaw pain, it may be a sign of TMJ disorder.
Nightguards are custom-made oral appliances worn while you sleep to prevent teeth grinding (bruxism). This common condition can result from various factors and immensely strain your TMJ. Unrated bruxism can result in worn-down or cracked teeth, taking a toll on your smile’s functionality. Our personalized nightguard solutions offer more protection and durability than commercial options.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which patients struggle to breathe throughout the night. They typically wake up several times to catch their breath without even realizing it, leading to daytime exhaustion and irritability. Untreated sleep apnea may result in oral and overall health issues. We offer expert sleep dentistry solutions such as oral appliance therapy to help you reclaim restful nights.
Frequently Asked Questions
Painful symptoms of TMJ disorders may go away on their own if the case is mild enough, but more severe cases should be treated by a professional like Dr. Hall. If untreated, TMD can result in further, possibly chronic symptoms. Schedule an appointment with our advanced dental professionals today to avoid worsening symptoms. Our team will address your needs while helping you find soothing relief for your jaw pain.
Sleep apnea puts more than your restful nights at risk. This sleep disorder typically forces patients to breathe through their mouths. Aside from loud snoring, this can also result in dry mouth, gum disease, and tooth decay. In some cases, patients struggling with sleep apnea are more likely to grind their teeth when they sleep.
Fortunately, Downtown Dental Group offers treatment for sleep apnea and other general dental issues.
Sleep apnea can wreak havoc on your oral and overall health if left untreated. Some common signs of sleep apnea include:
- Loud and frequent snoring
- Dry mouth
- Bad breath
- Daytime drowsiness
- Irritability and mood swings
Not only can these symptoms impact your health, but they can interfere with your daily tasks. Call our office at (785) 776-0097 and schedule a consultation with our Manhattan sleep dentist today if you suspect you have a sleep disorder.
