Having your teeth cleaned by our professional hygienist on a
regular basis helps to keep your teeth free of cavities and
your gums free of bacteria, and lessen the risk of serious
health conditions. Regular brushing will clean most areas of
the teeth. But there are hard-to-reach places that are often
neglected, allowing plaque and tartar to form on the surface
of teeth and below the gumline. If this is not removed, it
can lead to serious problems with your teeth and
life-threatening conditions with your heart, diabetes, and
stroke. We recommend regular cleanings to keep serious
problems from developing and to help keep your natural teeth
for a lifetime.
In the past, root canals had the reputation of being a
dreaded treatment and something to be avoided. But with
advanced techniques and the latest anesthetics, it is a
manageable procedure for the patient.
Root canal therapy will save a tooth so it doesn’t need to
be extracted. A missing tooth can cause other problems, and
keeping a natural tooth in place preserves a full and
During this procedure, the pulp interior of a tooth is
removed and a special filling material is packed inside the
tooth. This is not the same type of filling as for a cavity
restoration. Sometimes a crown is placed over the tooth for
added strength and full functionality.
You will be pleased to know Dr. Hagen is very experienced in
the latest techniques of root canal therapy to save a tooth
that has infected or damaged roots.
Do You Find Yourself Falling
Asleep on the Job?
Have you ever caught yourself falling asleep during the day?
Do you snore loudly at night? Perhaps you may be suffering
from a condition known as sleep apnea. Your airway does not
stay open as it should, resulting in a narrowed passageway
for the air to flow in and out of your lungs. Traditional
treatment is a CPAP device, which is a mask that fits over
the nose and mouth. A small machine pumps air continually
through the mask throughout the night. Although it relieves
the problem, its bulkiness produces another problem – it is
uncomfortable to wear, so many patients stop using it.
If you have tried the CPAP device and are frustrated with
it, we have an alternative that is small, light, and easy to
put in and take out. This acrylic device goes over your
upper and lower teeth. It will reposition your tongue and
jaw to keep your airway open for sufficient airflow to and
from your lungs. The results have been astounding, with over
90% of those who use it having successful improvement. Give
us a call to discuss this latest appliance so you can have a
good night’s rest again.
If it’s time for your next
cleaning, or if you’re ready to schedule a no cost/no
obligation consultation, call us now
