Reasons Why You Need to Have Your Sleep Apnea Corrected

By on Jan 17, 2018 in Blog |

Reasons Why You Need to Have Your Sleep Apnea Corrected Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA affects more people than is reported. This is because people often think it is not an acute medical condition and this is where they go wrong. For the most part, a severe sleep apnea can affect your personal and social life. It can have severe consequences on your body and also have an impact on your family and friends. Most people who suffer from OSA have reduced social and personal relationships because the problem pervades through their quality of life. It can also lead to complications including sleepiness during the day, memory problems, and depression to name a few. OSA Causes Sleepiness During the Day Because your quality of sleep is affected during the night, OSA can cause severe sleepiness during the day. This means you do not have the required energy to do tasks especially at work and can lead to difficulties completing a task. Although it rarely happens, the lack of vigor to do a task at work can consequently lead to job loss in the long run. The lack of sleep can also take its toll on the body because your body complains all the time and slows down. Driving, reading, or watching a television show can be a difficult task because you often find yourself dozing off in the middle of the activity. Depression and Memory Gaps Also Become a Problem When left untreated, severe sleep apnea can cause extreme depression to sufferers. It is often the main culprit that is often left unnoticed until a diagnosis has been determined and OSA has been ruled in as the leading cause of the mental illness. People with sleep apnea also find it hard concentrating on their tasks, have memory problems, and can also suffer from amnesia because of their slowed reaction. If you or a loved one is suffering from OSA, having it diagnosed and corrected can help them get a better quality of life. Institute of Mega Implants have been working relentlessly not only to give people a perfect smile but also to correct severe OSA. Using leading innovations and bio-physiological modifications can help you get your life back. Take...

How Toothaches Give Headaches

By on Jan 11, 2018 in Blog |

How Toothaches Give Headaches. Headaches can be pretty brutal by themselves. However, when coupled with a toothache which is just as painful if not more, the results can be catastrophic. You won’t find any sleep; you will be extremely irritable and uncomfortable. As such, most people tend only to take painkillers which remove or lessen the pain at the moment but do not address the underlying issues. When you are having a headache as a result of a toothache, there is usually one of three scenarios at play; all of which need a dentist’s touch to solve. Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) This is a condition that causes the teeth to ache and consequently also affect the head. The temporomandibular joints are found in the area where the jaws and the skull connect. Since the muscles on the side of the face control movements of the joints, the injured tooth can cause pain to shoot up the head. This is especially a problem for some ladies given the amounts of estrogen they produce either naturally or as a byproduct of using birth control pills. TMD is also caused by some abnormalities or conditions such as effacing of wisdom teeth, grinding teeth, eating some hard foods and also chewing large amounts of gum on a daily basis. Abscessed Tooth This is the leading cause of tooth-based aches. This type of tooth is caused by a severe crack or cavity in the tooth which has consequently brought about infection of the mouth and the surrounding tissues. Since there are several nerves passing through the mouth and head, the resulting infection agitates the nerves causing sharp throbbing, shooting pain from the area around the jaw to different areas of the head. Cavities Cavities mostly occur on the surface of teeth and in the roots. They are usually caused by eating and drinking sugary drinks or lack of oral hygiene such as regular brushing. Once the tooth is cracked open, the cavity gets bigger by eating away at the enamel of the tooth, therefore, exposing nerves to different things such as sugars, hot and cold foods that cause the exposed nerve to respond by sending pain to other regions of the face. This can be...

Mini Dental Implants For Improved Smile

By on Nov 17, 2017 in Blog |

Mini Dental Implants For Improved Smile Dental implants have become popular in recent years. These dental procedures allow patients to have a non-invasive dental treatment that is long lasting and provides secure care. Mini dental implants have faster recovery times and high success rate. Today, if you want to replace individual teeth, you find that dental implants are the most preferred while bridges are seen as a secondary option in restorative dental care. Demand for Mini Implants Expected to Grow Mini implants offer an improved dental technology and technique allowing patients to find reliable restorative dentistry procedures. The typical 3.0 mm or greater dental implants were the option available in the past years, but with the increasing demand for mini implants that are 3.0 mm or less, the results are impressive. However, it is important to point out that the procedure may take a couple of months to see the results. So, Why Are Dental Implants A Better Choice There are many benefits that come with dental implants and they include improved appearance, improved comfort, enhanced oral care, durability, and increased success rate. When you have these implants, they look and feel as your original teeth. You will have improved comfort because there is less pain involved. Because mini dental implants individualize teeth treatment, they do not affect the surrounding teeth and a patient will have improved oral hygiene. The implants will last longer because of the enhanced oral hygiene and efficient personal care. Evaluating Your Options It is essential that you find out if dental implants offer an effective procedure for your individual treatment. Scheduling an appointment with the team at Institute of Mega Implants will allow the cosmetic dentists to evaluate your need for dental implants and provide you with a personalized care plan. Improving your smile with dental implants gives you the confidence you need to face life. It also helps you enjoy your bite while also ensuring you have comfort with the dental...

Long-Term Care After a Dental Implant

By on Oct 6, 2017 in Blog |

Long-Term Care After a Dental Implant You want your dental implants to last longer and avoid any dental issues or complications after the procedure. Usually, proper care of your dental implants will begin even before having the procedure. You need to ensure that you promote good oral health so that the implant is successful. Your gums should be firm and bright pink without redness or inflammation. That said, your post-implant period is equally as important as the pre-implant period. So, what are the long-term dental implant care tips you should observe? The Toothpaste Obviously, you want to brush your mouth, but this time, you have something not typical as you would find with a normal mouth. You have the implants in there and these are made of materials that can deteriorate if not cared for. You will find that not all toothpaste is going to work for you when you have implants. Use low abrasive toothpaste and avoid those that contain stain removers, baking soda, and sodium fluoride because they may erode the surface of the implant. Use Implant-Friendly Floss Flossing is crucial as it removes food particles and plaque – responsible for promoting the growth of bacteria, which release acids causing damage to the enamel. If you don’t floss, your enamel and probably the implants may be eroded by the acids. But you want to be careful when flossing. Use implant-specific floss or the unwaxed floss. If you have multiple implants, you may need a threader. Water flossers may be needed if the implants are in hard to reach parts of the mouth. Regular Checkups Your dentist will need to monitor the implants and see that they are functioning properly and the surrounding gum tissue is healthy. So make follow-ups with the dentist. You may want to do visual inspections and when you notice something unusual like swelling or redness or irritation, you call your dentist. Having dental implants offers you a safe, permanent method of replacing missing teeth. If you want them to last longer, you should follow the above tips and any other information the dentist provides you with. Restore your smile today with Institute of Mega...
