Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Dental Medicine

Are you drowsy during the day with no explanation? Do you snore loudly or wake up breathless in the middle of the night? If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be one of more than 12 million Americans who are affected by Sleep Apnea.

Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disordered Breathing can make everyday life very difficult. People with Sleep Apnea also have side effects like chronic grinding and tooth wear. We’re thrilled to let you know that Dr Jungblut offers oral appliances for the treatment of Sleep Apnea symptoms.

Dental Bridges

This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge use the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or aesthetics.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size.  Crowns are a good treatment option when the integrity of a tooth has been damaged to the point where fillings or other types of restorations cannot properly repair it.  They are also commonly done after root canal treatment.

Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures are a removable appliance designed to replace missing teeth and their surrounding tissue.  They are designed to closely resemble your teeth and serve to complete the overall dental structure of your mouth, supporting both the normal function of your teeth and the natural beauty of your smile.  There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing.  Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, both filling the spaces left by missing teeth and preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Dentures can be combined with implants to create an even more stable and retentive appliance.  Even patients with complete dentures require regular dental exams and oral cancer screenings.  Dentures are very durable appliances that will last many years with proper maintenance.  Keep in mind that they sometimes will have to be remade, repaired or readjusted due to normal wear.

Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a permanent solution for missing teeth, relieving the patient from inconvenience associated with partial or complete dentures.  They are artificial roots and teeth that are custom crafted to your dentition and surgically placed into the jawbone by a dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon. Though made of titanium for strength, dental implants look very natural and often enhance the patient’s smile. Strong, stable, and durable, dental implants will last many years.

Periodontal Therapy (Gum disease)

Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy (also referred to as root canal treatment or endodontic therapy) is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that would otherwise be lost as a result of infection or decay that has reached the tooth’s nerve.  Occasionally, a tooth with no decay visible but has a history of trauma can end up requiring a root canal.  Preserving the tooth is ideal because it eliminates the problems that a gap in the dental structure creates for the surrounding teeth—problems that quickly become more and more costly and inconvenient over the course of time.

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders)

TMJ stands for temporal-mandibular joint.  Temporal, as in the temple area of skull; mandibular as in mandible, or lower jaw; joint as in where the head and jaw meet.  Problems in this joint may be caused by misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension.  Aside from the two bones that meet here, cartilage buffers them and five muscles are involved in the area.  TMJ problems can affect people of all ages.
