The General Dentist Tulsa, OK, Trusts
A number of basic dental services fall under the umbrella term of general dentistry. Together, they are meant to help you and your family members both young and old enjoy a smile that is not only healthy, but attractive, too. We begin with a dental checkup that includes your biannual cleaning and exam. With this baseline, Dr. Nauman can determine the other treatments you may need to maintain optimal oral health and a beautiful smile. These can include:
- Dental Sealants
- Fluoride Treatments
- Dry Mouth Treatment
- Brain Pad Mouthguards
- Night Guards
Sleep Apnea Care
Sleep apnea is a medical condition that is marked by interruptions in breathing throughout the night. One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is loud snoring. This happens when air vibrates tissue in the throat. In the case of sleep apnea, the tissue partially blocks your airway. Other symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Morning headaches
- A sore throat
- Gasping for breath while sleeping
- Frequently needing to urinate during the night
- Daytime drowsiness
- Depression or moodiness
- Difficulty concentrating
If any of these symptoms are plaguing you or the person who sleeps next to you at night, then mention this to Dr. Nauman during your dental checkup. She can arrange for you to have a sleep study to determine the cause of a sleep disorder. For many patients, wearing a comfortable oral appliance can restore restful sleep. The appliance gently shifts your tongue and lower jaw slightly forward in order to keep your airway open.
