IMPLANT DENTISTRY

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. View the following videos to get a better idea of how implants work.

Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule an appointment, call our office in Boone, NC at 828-386-1033.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is an epidemic affecting millions, are you one of them? Do you wake up feeling tired or sleepy? If so, you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a sleep disorder marked by an interruption of breathing throughout the sleep cycle. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Snoring
  • Daytime Sleepiness or fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Forgetfulness
  • Restless sleep
  • Gasping for Air during sleep
  • Depression
  • Feeling irritable
  • Night sweats
  • Dry mouth or sore throat in the morning
  • Headaches in the morning

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) affects an estimated 26-37% of American adults1,2. OSA can be life threatening if left untreated, yet it often goes undiagnosed. Most people don’t even know they suffer from OSA, or the very real dangers they live with. For those with sleep apnea, collapsed tissue within the throat obstructs the airway resulting in interrupted breathing during sleep.

Good sleep is vital to health, yet millions are deprived, their sleep is interrupted by their body waking up to breathe.
