We Are Here to Help Ease Your Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Posted on 7/26/2021 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that causes you to stop breathing at different times when you sleep. There are two main types of sleep apnea: central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea. Most people experience obstructive sleep apnea compared to the central one. During the interruptions in your sleep, the airway's soft tissue collapses. This will prevent oxygen from passing through it and reach the lungs. Therefore, do you have this condition? Do not worry; we are here to help ease your sleep apnea symptoms. How We Can Help If you have sleep apnea, you need to talk to our professionals, especially if your condition is obstructive. After getting diagnosed with sleep apnea, a visit to our offices can help you learn more about the various treatment options. Our professionals might suggest wearing oral appliances, among other remedies. Dental devices significantly reduce the symptoms in patients of average weight with moderate to mild sleep apnea. Also referred to as mandibular advancement devices, oral appliances are essential in dealing with sleep apnea. These devices will push the lower jaw forward, easing the damage to your teeth. This position makes the muscles collapse during an attack, controlling the various impacts of the condition. As time progresses, dental appliances can steadily strengthen the airway, making it more rigid and creating a clear airway. You should not worry about these devices because they are adjustable, allowing you to alter their position. We will assess your mouth and determine whether you are a good candidate for oral appliances. If you are, we will provide perfectly fitting devices after creating a model of your teeth. In case you do not meet the requirements, we will provide other efficient alternatives that will help ease your sleep apnea symptoms. Visit our offices for more information on sleep apnea and how it can be treated....

How Bad Can Untreated Bruxism Really Get?

Posted on 7/12/2021 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Bruxism is a condition in which you grind or clench your teeth. Both kids and adults may have bruxism. Bruxism may occur when you are awake or asleep and may be voluntary or involuntary. Some Ramifications of Bruxism Most cases of bruxism are mild and do not require treatment. However, in some patients, bruxism can be frequent and severe. The teeth may appear flattened, fractured, or chipped. We see patients with bruxism completely wear off the enamel on their teeth. Bruxism can lead to jaw disorders, headaches, and damaged teeth. If bruxism is not diagnosed and treated, there may be complications. The patient may experience extensive damage to the teeth. Constant grinding and clenching can destroy the tooth structure. In addition, prior dental work can be easily damaged by the force of the teeth against each other. Dental restorations, fillings, and crowns can suffer damage from bruxism. If bruxism is untreated, a patient might incur tension-type headaches. Often these occur in the morning after clenching and grinding through the night. However, these headaches can happen at any time of the day. Patients with bruxism often report severe facial or jaw pain. This is a logical consequence as the jaw overworks and stresses the muscles. Further, disorders can develop in the temporomandibular joints. These are located just in front of your ears. You may hear a click when you open and close your mouth if these joints are stressed. Untreated bruxism can cause havoc on your temporomandibular joints. Give us a Call to Schedule Your Next Exam Make sure to schedule your next cleaning and exam. We can look for signs of bruxism. It is important to identify bruxism early and take steps to change this condition. Doing so may save your teeth as well as your jaw....

Travelling After Oral Surgery

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Hundreds of thousands of patients undergo oral surgery each year. Some of these procedures are relatively minor, such as tooth extractions or dental implants. Others such as jaw realignment surgery tend to be more extensive. Each oral surgery features a recovery period that varies depending on the type of surgery carried out. If you have recently had oral surgery, you may need to take some precautions before travelling. At Palisades Surgical Arts, Dr. Moncayo and can inform you on everything you need to know about when traveling after an oral surgery. Is it Safe to Travel After Oral Surgery Most patients can safely take flights following an oral surgery. However, it is important to be aware of the healing process and how travel can affect it. There is a widespread belief that taking a flight after an oral surgery may cause bleeding or discomfort due to air pressure changes as the aircraft ascends and descends. However, the good news is that aircraft cabins are pressurized, so air pressure changes should not be a concern for flyers who have just had oral surgery. Tips for Travelling After Oral Surgery While air pressure changes should not be a concern for dental patients, there are other considerations that should be taken into account when travelling. This includes At Palisades Surgical Arts, Dr. Moncayo and will inform you about any measures you will need to take when travelling following your oral surgery. Please contact Dr. Moncayo and at Palisades Surgical Arts if you have had oral surgery recently and are concerned about travelling. You can schedule an appointment with us by calling our office at (424) 346-0955 today....
