So a lot of times what we notice with whitening is that there's sensitivity and that we're just not happy with the outcome. Here in the office, we can address both of those issues very well so that patients are comfortable whitening, that it happens rapidly, and that they get the outcome they were looking for versus some of the other options that are out there.
We offer Zoom Whitening, which is in-office whitening. So they can come in the practice and then have a bright smile when they leave. We offer take-home whitening as well, which is a customized tray that fits over their teeth and then they take home the gel. Having that custom tray helps a lot with preventing the sensitivity that can occur. Whitening is very noninvasive. A lot of patients are concerned if some of these elements are issues that ... in some of the elements we use, are they problematic? Whitening was developed by periodontists inadvertently because it was a good treatment using peroxides to help with periodontal disease. So it's very healthy, actually. It even helps the gum tissue, as a matter of fact.

Sleep Better Without a CPAP
Sleep apnea episodes can occur hundreds of times per night – and you most likely are not even aware of it! When the tongue and soft tissues in the back of your throat relax and temporarily block your airway, sleep apnea happens. The word apnea comes from a Greek word that means “breathless” or “without breathing.”
When your airway becomes obstructed, your brain will signal your body to wake up and take in more oxygen. After you do, you drift off back to sleep – until the next cycle of sleep apnea occurs. Sleep apnea has been linked to serious health issues like diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes.
We have sleep apnea treatment that can not only help, but will also reduce your snoring. Our simple, custom-made oral appliance fits comfortably in your mouth while you sleep. It will adjust your lower jaw slightly forward to help keep your airway open. This action also helps keep air from flowing past those soft tissues and causing you to snore.
The result is that you’ll sleep better and your bed partner will, too! You both will wake up feeling better and ready to face the day. And best of all, you won’t have to worry about using a bulky, noisy CPAP machine. While CPAP therapy is effective for sleep apnea symptoms, many patients have a hard time getting used to it. With our help, you can avoid a CPAP, sleep better, and feel better!
