Is Your Snoring Really Sleep Apnea?

Everyone will snore occasionally, and especially if you have a heavy cold or allergies. But, if you are aware of snoring more regularly, or if a sleeping partner has complained you are keeping them awake, it is possible you could have a condition called sleep apnea. Unlike regular snoring, sleep apnea is characterized by frequent pauses in breathing and episodes of loud snoring. Breathing can cease for several seconds or more each time. When it restarts, it is often with a loud gasp or snort. If this sounds a bit too familiar, it could be worth investigating if you have sleep apnea, or if you do just simply snore rather loudly! What are the Signs of Sleep Apnea? The main sign of sleep apnea is loud snoring, but this is punctuated with episodes where breathing stops or gasping for air while asleep. People with sleep apnea in Oshawa will often…

Ill-Fitting Dentures and What to Do About Them

Do you currently wear full or partial dentures? Is your denture causing you problems? A well-fitting denture can be a great solution for tooth loss, and here at Margolian Dentistry, we take enormous care when designing and fabricating full and partial dentures. But, they do need continual maintenance and care and will need regular relines or remaking entirely. One common problem facing denture wearers is the destruction of the jawbone. Jawbone Loss When your natural teeth are removed, your jawbone gradually shrinks as the bone adjusts and remodels. Some bone loss is unavoidable because your jawbone relies on the stimulation provided by your tooth roots to keep its shape. Although your jawbone will shrink, your denture certainly won’t, which is why even the best-made dentures will no longer fit as snugly and as securely as originally. An ill-fitting denture can actually accelerate jawbone loss, which is why regular denture adjustments…

Tips for Enjoying a More Tooth-Friendly Halloween

Just in case you haven’t noticed, Halloween in Whitby is only a few weeks away. The stores are already full of spooky paraphernalia, and of course, Halloween means masses of candy. If you have kids, no doubt they are looking forward to trick or treating and coming home with a sizable stash of the sweet stuff. However, when your child has sugary candies, the bacteria found in dental plaque on their tooth surfaces will also feast on these sugars, creating acid that softens and damages tooth enamel. The damage caused to teeth depends on how frequently the teeth come into contact with sugar, so if your child eats candy over a longer period of time, contact increases and so does their risk of cavities. While it might be impossible to ban candy altogether, some tactics can help to reduce the damage, while still ensuring they have an enjoyable time. Taking…
