Snoring Can Leave You Facing Tooth Loss, But We Can Help
Posted on 3/20/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Sometimes snoring is just an annoyance, but there are many times that it points to something worse. If you snore, you should mention it to us the next time that you come in for an appointment. We want to make sure that your snoring is not part of a larger issue, and that it will not lead to tooth loss. Teeth GrindingBruxism is also known as teeth grinding. People who grind their teeth at night are risking all kinds of damage to their teeth, including potential tooth loss. The good news about teeth grinding is that there are things that we can do to help with the problem. Often all that it takes is a special mouthguard that will be worn at night. That could fix the problem with bruxism, and also help you to stop snoring. Sleep ApneaSnoring is often a sign of sleep apnea. This is when someone misses breaths while they sleep. There are some types of sleep apnea that will not require a dental visit, but if you have obstructed sleep apnea you will want to see us. With obstructed sleep apnea, there is something obstructing your airway while you sleep. A dental appliance might make all the difference. A dry mouth is a sign of sleep apnea, and over time a dry mouth can lead to tooth loss. Sleep apnea can also affect many other aspects of your life. If you have obstructed sleep apnea, we want to work with your ear, nose, and throat specialist to find the right solution for your situation. No matter why you snore, it is a good idea to mention it to us. We will rule out dental issues and will also make sure that your teeth are strong and not affected by the snoring....

Sleep Recommendations Following Oral Surgery
Posted on 3/10/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
One thing that we will tell you if you are having oral surgery is that you need to get plenty of rest immediately following the surgery. That is sometimes easier said than done. Here are some recommendations for sleeping after your oral surgery. Incline One thing that is very important after oral surgery is that you sleep at an incline. Ideally, your head should be at an angle of at least 45 degrees from your heart. This can often be obtained by adding another pillow. If you are in bed and you can feel throbbing in your jaw, there is a good chance that you are not sleeping at the correct incline. Sleep Position One of the hardest things to do after oral surgery is to find the right sleep position. We recommend that you sleep on your back for a couple of nights. You do not want to roll onto the side that you had the surgery on and risk lying on the sore part of your mouth. Medications You will of course need to follow the directions for any medicines that we prescribed for you. Before you get into bed, make sure that you have followed the directions on all of your prescriptions, especially an antibiotic. You must take the full course of the antibiotic, so double check before you go to bed. Do not take any medicine for sleeping after oral surgery, unless you have talked to us about it first. This includes any herbal remedies. Sleep is important after a surgery, and sleep position is as well. If you have any questions about sleep or anything else that has to do with aftercare, please ask us. Remember that your recovery will not take too long, and that you will be able to sleep in your favorite position once again before you know it....

Concerns You Should Bring Up at Your Next Appointment With Us
Posted on 2/28/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
A trip to our office is an important step to good oral health. We have the education and the tools to give you a good examination, but there is something else that we need. It is important to us to have all the information about what you are doing and what is happening with your oral health. We need our patients to let us know what they have seen, feel or worry about when it comes to their oral health and habits. This allows us to give a more thorough examination and to give you the information you need to remain healthy. Start with the Basics You are the person that is most responsible for your oral health. You are the one that needs to take care of your teeth and that gets the benefits from having healthy teeth and gums. For that reason, the first questions you should ask center around how you can take care of your oral health. Are you brushing the right way? It is important to not only brush your teeth twice a day, but also to do it the right way. We can show you how to do this if you ask. Do you have the right tools? A good toothbrush, the right toothpaste, floss and mouthwash are some of the tools you need to use at home to maintain good oral health. We can help you decide what fits your needs and your budget. How often should I visit you're the office? Most people should come in for a checkup and cleaning twice a year, although some people may need to come in more often depending on their needs. Deeper Questions The questions about the basics are not something you need to ask every time. There are some other questions to consider for your regular visits. Ask about any pain, bleeding or other symptoms that something is possibly wrong with your oral health. Providing this information can help us look for specific problems that you may have. Ask about different options you have to improve oral health issues you have. It is possible there is a better solution to a problem. Ask how your oral health is. We will tell you if we see something wrong, but you can still ask about different issues you have worries about. You can also ask if there is something you are doing well. As dental professionals, we know that people have concerns about their oral health. We also know that some people are afraid to talk about it. We are willing to take the time to listen and answer any question to the best of our ability. That will help you maintain good oral health. Contact our office today to speak with one of our professionals about your oral health....
