Best dental techniques to improve your smile

The Ultimate Goal to Achieve the Beautiful Smile You’ve Always Wanted

Great dental care is more that achieving a healthy smile, it includes ensuring that your smile makes you smile. Whether aligning a misshapen smile, achieving optimal function and comfort, or ensuring you can breathe easy while you sleep, achieving all those objectives are what it means to truly have a great smile.

Braces/Aligners

Many people who want to straighten their smile, can now accomplish wearing clear aligners. It’s critical to work directly with a licensed dental professional overseeing something as significant as the position and function of your teeth. Achieving the proper alignment and occlusion of your bite and jaws is a vital aspect of proper function and preventing long term pain associated with TMJD. While straightening your smile is a fundamental goal of aligners, ensuring your smile functions properly and you are pain-free for your lifetime, is equally critical. A truly beautiful smile looks, feels and functions optimally.

Jaw/TMJ

Most people don’t consider their Temporal Mandibular or jaw Joint unless they experience pain, or other symptoms of dysfunction or TMJD. The TMJ is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. It allows your upper and lower jaw to open and close, facilitating chewing and speaking. TMJ dysfunction (TMJD) is associated with a myriad of symptoms including jaw pain, headaches, lock jaw, tinnitus, migraines, and more. Many people who experience TMJD may also have sleep apnea symptoms. A dentist, specially trained in evaluating and treating TMJD and Sleep Apnea is the most qualified person to treat this condition.

Snoring/Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious health concern that more than 22 Million American have. People with untreated sleep apnea (either because they don’t know they have it or they choose not to treat it) have more than a 3 times greater risk of premature death, especially death related to heart attack or stroke. Early identification of sleep apnea is critical since people who’ve had it for 5 years of longer have a 30% increased chance of cardiac death. In September 1995 the American Sleep Disorder Association (ASDA) endorsed oral appliance therapy as an acceptable treatment modality for snoring and sleep apnea. Dentists, specially trained in identifying and treating people with OSA, can literally give someone OSA a new lease on life.

Snoring and Sleeping Apnea

Oral appliance therapy is completely non-invasive and painless. It is a mouthpiece, for patients with primary snoring or mild to moderate Sleep Apnea. You wear the small device, the size of a mouth guard, while you sleep. They are very comfortable, easy to wear, and easy to travel with. These appliances can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments. Oral Appliances work by attempting to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of your throat, keeping your airway open to allow adequate air intake. They work to reposition the lower jaw, tongue, soft palate, and uvula. Oral Appliance Therapy involves selecting an appropriate design, and then custom fitting it to your teeth and should only be supervised by a trained, qualified dentist.

I’ve moved throughout my career and had many dentists, many excellent. I must say Dr Filler’s office tops them all. I knew she must be good when my 23 year old daughter who hates dentists said she was great! Highly recommend.
