  1. Zzzzzzz Don’t Hit Snooze on This!
    What you Need to Know about Snore Guards and Sleep Apnea

    Do you snore? Does your partner or family member snore?  Often times, people become irritated and bothered when someone’s snoring wakes them up but did you know there may be an underlining medical disorder?

    Sleep apnea is a serious condition that should not be ignored. When someone has sleep apnea, they stop breathing for short periods throughout the night.

    Did you know your dentist can provide relief?

    Sleep apnea patients may opt for a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) machine that is worn at night. There is another solution that your dentist can treat you with — of you not only snore but are not getting enough oxygen you can be fitted for an oral appliance that opens the airway. Oral appliances and snore guards are similar to night guards but reposition your tongue and lower jaw. This realignment clears your obstructed airway and allows you to breath regularly while you sleep.

    You owe it to yourself and your family to get a better nights sleep — sleep is critical to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  2. Looking to Save Money? Try Flossing!

    Many people fear going to the dentist because they assume they will be hit with a heavy bill due to dental work. In reality, going to the dentist regularly can save you money! It is important to put your health first – especially your oral health. It’s important to maintain healthy oral hygiene tips at home not only to achieve a healthy smile, but it also helps keep your dental expenses down.

    Dr. Frankel and Team Share 5 Money Saving Tips:

     

    1. Floss! Floss is very inexpensive (roughly around $2) and is much less expensive than a filling.

    2. Purchase new toothbrushes at least every quarter — stock up when there is a good sale! If you are using an old toothbrush, you are subjecting yourself to more germs and not getting a good quality brush due to the worn down bristles.

    3.  Drink water…water is the healthiest beverage for your entire body – especially your mouth.

    4.  Come in for your regular, professional cleanings and exams. Regular cleanings help you avoid future problems or help detect potential issues before they become expensive to repair.

    5. Look into a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) – you can pay for your bills with pre-tax dollars.

    If your job offers you dental insurance, you are very fortunate to have group coverage. If you are looking for insurance coverage or have questions about billing, please contact our office – we are happy to go over any questions you may have!
