To maintain a healthy smile, patients are encouraged to see Dr. Cobb and his team regularly for dental examinations. These exams should be completed at least twice a year, depending on a patient’s dental needs. Dental examinations include a dental screening as well as x-rays to ensure everything is healthy from the inside out.
Professional teeth cleaning can work wonders on a patient’s smile. Many patients enjoy the feeling of their teeth after their dentist has thoroughly cleaned them. Dr. Cobb is able to get into areas of the teeth that a toothbrush cannot reach, and can examine the teeth closely during the treatment.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Snoring is often associated with obstructive sleep apnea, a sleeping disorder that can cause patients not to receive enough oxygen at night. This is caused by an obstruction in the throat. Patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea or chronic snoring can benefit from seeing their dentist. Oral appliance therapy is known to be effective in reducing snoring and the effects of obstructive sleep apnea. Mouth guards are worn at night to realign the jaw and hold down the tongue to improve patient’s sleep.
TMJ / TMD
The temporomandibular joint is the jaw joint that opens and closes the mouth. It can become troublesome for a patient and cause pain and discomfort. When this happens, a patient may be diagnosed with TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. Dr. Cobb and the team at Alex Bell Dental have a solution for TMD sufferers: oral appliance therapy. By using a special mouth guard, patients can reduce the tension on this jaw joint and protect their teeth from damage during clenching and grinding.
