Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment

If your dentist has ever suggested orthodontic treatment, you've probably thought about how uncomfortable it will be to wear metal braces on your teeth for about a year. Instead of dealing with distracting visible braces on your teeth, you may be able to substitute your treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative to traditional braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners that snap onto your teeth to move and adapt them to the proper shape.

Invisalign is virtually invisible, much more comfortable than traditional braces, does not restrict your diet, and costs about the same as normal braces. Learn more about this revolutionary orthodontic treatment at Image Dental.

Treat Sleep Apnea with Mouth Guards

Approximately 18 million people in the U.S. suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder caused by the tongue and soft tissues falling to the back of the throat and obstructing the airway during sleep, thus leading to moments of ceased breathing. If you suffer from excessive sleepiness, you may have sleep apnea and not even know it.

Those with sleep apnea can be treated with a sleep apnea mouth guard. These mouth guards resemble the protective dental sports gear and are simply placed in the mouth at night before sleeping. To learn more about how how mouth guards treat sleep apnea and to find out if you suffer from sleep apnea, click here.
