Did you know that we help patients who suffer from sleep apnea? Millions of people suffer from this common condition and often do not receive the help they need because they aren’t sure who to turn to. Sleep is an important part of your day, and we want to ensure our patients are getting the quality sleep they need and deserve. One of our patients who suffers from sleep apnea recently shared his experience with his treatment and some thoughts about our practice.

At McMillan Family Dental, we encourage patients to visit our office for routine hygiene examinations. Not only are these appointments necessary to look for signs of tooth decay, but we also look for other common conditions that can be rather severe if not detected early and treated in a timely manner. One such condition is gum disease. Gum disease, also commonly known as periodontal disease, is a serious gum infection caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth. When gum disease is left untreated, it will continue to progress and can cause serious complications such as tooth loss and deterioration of the jawbone.
Do you often experience discomfort in your jaw or frequent headaches? Or perhaps you have experienced problems with cracked teeth. If you have noticed any of these problems, you may be suffering from bruxism. Bruxism is the term used to describe a condition where a patient repeatedly clenches and grinds their teeth unconsciously. If not treated in a timely fashion, bruxism can lead to serious oral health complications and the need for additional treatments. Many people who suffer from bruxism are unaware because it occurs during sleep.
At McMillan Family Dental, it is important that our patients know we are a practice they can trust. Each patient to enter our office has had a different dental experience, and sometimes it has not always been the best. Our entire team welcomes each and every person and wants you to feel at home immediately.
