Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects more than 20 million US adults every year. If this statistic isn’t startling enough, an estimated 80% of cases go completely undiagnosed or misdiagnosed annually. One of the main reasons this sleep disorder is overlooked by physicians is that the symptoms vary widely. One way to ensure an early and accurate diagnosis is to know what sleep apnea is, and understand the warning signs and risk factors associated with this disorder.

Of course there are a plethora of home teeth whitening remedies and treatments, but they will never give you the results an office teeth whitening treatment would. A whiter smile is more than a personal preference, it’s the ultimate confidence booster. We choose to use Sinsational Smile in our dental office because of the long lasting, consistent results. An in-office session takes about 20 mins. 20 MINS! And you receive a take home whitening pen for touchups. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Today you have a couple options when it comes to dentures. You can seek out traditionally made dentures; what I like to call ECONOMY dentures. Or, you can have all the incredible advantages of a more modern technique called Neuromuscular dentures.
Unlike traditional prosthetics, Neuromuscular (NM) dentures are designed to fit a mouth in movement and more importantly be in harmony with your muscles, nervous system and all the tissues in your mouth as it moves and functions. All of these factors equal an improved fit when you are eating, talking and smiling. Traditional dentures are designed and made to fit a mouth that doesn’t move. Since a moving mouth is pertinent for a high quality life, this technique is not the most viable solution.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great way to restore a beautiful smile for those who have lost one or more teeth. Call Fremont dentist, Dr. James Block to find out more.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth or need to have a tooth extracted in the near future, you should be considering how you will replace them. Left uncorrected, missing teeth have numerous long-term oral health effects. Most patients are aware that gaps between teeth allow the surrounding teeth to shift leading to a misaligned bite.
Did you know that there is a much more significant problem associated with tooth loss? Diminished bone and gum tissue density as a result of missing teeth can lead to excessive pressure being placed on certain teeth which can lead to further tooth damage or loss. Loss of bone density puts added strain on other parts of the jaw putting you at risk to develop TMJ.
Dental implants are an innovative dental technology that can reverse the effects of missing teeth, and restore your smile. Native to Fremont, CA, Dr. James Block is a 3rd generation dentist who is dedicated to providing his community with the best possible dental care. Call today to find out more about dental implants, and schedule a consultation to find out if implants are the right way to replace your missing teeth.
