DENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
Teeth and vital organs
Untreated tooth decay, gum disease and bacteria in your mouth can cause dental infections spreading to vital organs like the brain, heart, lungs, joints …
Diabetes reduces the body’s resistance to infections and increases the risk for gum diseases, which can lead to tooth loss. Patients with diabetes have higher risks of gum disease than those whose blood sugar is normal.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
The phenomenon of sleep apnea is manifested by involuntary pauses in breathing during the night. These pauses in breathing can reach more than one minute and occur several times at night. Most people with sleep apnea snore loudly. Your sleep may be disturbed without you noticing it! For patients diagnosed with sleep apnea, we offer effective solutions using oral appliances.
Tinnitus is whistling in the ears or head, but not caused by outside noise. They can create a permanent discomfort affecting sleep, quality of life, concentration and cause anxiety. The causes of tinnitus are numerous: otitis, blood pressure, medications … We offer a wide range of effective treatments for this disease.
Factors of bad breath can be the body’s response to certain food, poor dental health and gum disease. Dentists can provide series of treatments, such as deep cleaning.
The dryness of the mouth may be related to certain diseases, medications, but also bacteria present in saliva. This phenomenon of decreased saliva can cause significant damage to teeth and gums. We offer effective treatments for dry mouth.
TMJ symptoms can be a clicking sound while opening the mouth, headaches or otitis (ears inflammation). We offer a full range of care for TMJ disorders, including sessions of muscle laser relaxation.
