Dental anxiety or fear of the dentist can compromise your dental health. This can result in you not going to the dentist as often as you should and will then result in further dental damage. At Cardinal Park Family Dental Care, we believe none of our patients should dread coming to see us and should feel as comfortable as possible during their procedures. This is why we offer specialized treatments like sedation dentistry. We give our patients the option of oral conscious sedation, IV sedation and general anesthesia. Oral sedation is simply a pill you take an hour before your procedure that will relax you. You will be awake during your procedure but feel completely relaxed. IV sedation is administered from an anesthesiologist and will make you unconscious during your procedure. General anesthesia is computer controlled injection via The Wand that provides painless anesthesia for all injection types. Depending on the procedure and the comfort of the patient, your dentist will offer the best sedation method for you. If you are opting for sedation dentistry, please arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment. You won’t be in a condition to drive.
Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that results in loud snoring and disruptive sleep. The most common type is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea, caused by airways being obstructed during sleep. If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in an increased risk of heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Common symptoms of sleep apnea are: snoring, feeling tired throughout the day, morning headaches, nighttime gasping or choking, and dry mouth or sore throat upon waking. Sleep apnea can be affecting your daily health without you even knowing. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you might benefit from one of the sleep apnea appliances available such as Silent Nite for snoring prevention. Silent Nite® is a custom made device that moves your lower jaw into a more forward position which increases the airway space allowing for easy breathing during the night. Sleep apnea treatment from Cardinal Park Family Dental Care has provided to our patients in Leesburg, VA in Loudoun County.
Night Guards for Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can inflict severe damage to your teeth. If left untreated, your teeth can be worn down and possibly break, and lead to inflamed and receding gums. Other side effects of bruxism are headaches, earaches, tightness or stiffness in the shoulders, sleep interruption, TMJ, and aching jaw and facial muscles. There is an easy solution that will prevent any of these problems from progressing. The solution is wearing a Night Guard while you sleep. We offer both hard and soft night guards depending on your condition and activities you engage in. The device is worn while you sleep and will save your teeth from any damage.
TMJ & Jaw and Headache Pain
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) also known as TMJ, creates a popping in your jaw as well as severe headaches and neck pain. This pain can become overwhelming, and luckily can be relieved with the help of devices from Cardinal Park Family Dental Care. We can set you up with an NTI-tss™ device. This device can also be used to treat jaw pain and chronic headache pain. Clenching your teeth can lead to lots of pain that can be relieved with the NTI-tss. This device is a custom made clear plastic device that fits over the top two front teeth. This device is only worn at night while you are sleeping. It makes it impossible for you to clench your teeth and will train your mouth to stop clenching over the range of a few weeks. Improve your health with an NTI-tss device by visiting us.
