After the heat we experienced this summer, we know that many of you are looking forward to cooler weather this fall.

One of the most important things that we can do for our bodies is get a good night’s sleep. Sleep is necessary to recharge your body and your mind so you are prepared to function properly from day to day. If you haven’t slept well, you may notice that you feel irritable, moody, exhausted, and just not like yourself. If you feel like this often, have learned that you snore every night, or find yourself having difficulty falling and staying asleep, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Once you receive a sleep apnea diagnosis, it is important to receive treatment because it can impact your day-to-day life as well as your overall health. Read on to learn more about the importance of treating sleep apnea and how we can help you or your loved ones.

At Rivercrest Family Dental, we care about the health of our patients of all ages. We often stress the importance of caring for your oral health. Our adult patients are responsible for their own oral health, and children rely on an adult to help them care for their teeth. What about our teenage patients? While it is important for adults to ensure that our teenage patients are visiting our office for routine hygiene examinations and cleanings, adolescence is a time when teens become responsible for caring for their oral health on a daily basis. We want to help our teenage patients understand the harm they can cause to their teeth when they do not care for them properly.

At Rivercrest Family Dental, we are passionate about helping our patients save their natural teeth. Unfortunately, there are certain instances when that is not possible, and we may recommend a tooth extraction. An extraction may be needed for a number of reasons, such as severe decay, complications from gum disease, trauma to the mouth, complications with wisdom teeth, or even to help prepare the mouth before orthodontic treatment. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth structure, including the root, is fully removed.
