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.

What are Dental Crowns and Why Would I Need One?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that completely cover or “cap” a tooth. They are used to restore the shape, size, and appearance of the tooth and cover the entire portion of it above the gumline. A well-made crown prevents further damage to the tooth because it completely seals it, so that disease-causing bacteria, saliva and food debris cannot get in. Why Would I Need a Dental Crown? Reasons for needing a dental crown include the following: If you have a tooth that is weak or cracked, for example, if it has substantial decay. If you need a large filling in a tooth, there might not be enough of the natural tooth left to support it. Covering up a heavily filled tooth will restore its strength and structure.

Have You Heard About Same Day Crowns?

If you have had dental crowns in the past, then you may already be familiar with the technique used to create them. First, your dentist in Whitby must prepare the tooth before taking a detailed dental impression using mouth trays. Next, a temporary crown is fitted over the tooth, protecting it while the dental lab makes your permanent restoration. The whole process takes approximately two weeks and although you do receive a beautiful new crown, you will need to see your dentist at least twice. If you have a busy life or are perhaps due to go on vacation, then having a temporary crown may not be convenient. While we still provide conventionally made dental crowns at Margolian Dentistry, we can offer you another option. This is to have your crown made and fitted all on the same day. The crowns created using this method do not compromise on quality…
