When your rest is disrupted by sleep apnea, you can have a difficult time sustaining your mood, and you can experience unwelcome physical problems like fatigue, headaches, and more. The longer you wait to address this problem, the more impact it can ultimately have on your well-being. Fortunately, you can turn to your dentist for help. At our Baxter, MN dentist’s office, we provide dental sleep treatment to address breathing difficulties that interfere with your rest. To treat sleep apnea, we can provide a custom oral appliance that ensures you stay at rest and breathe without difficulty. An appliance can also help if you have trouble with snoring but are not currently experiencing issues with sleep apnea. (more…)
When you have a dental filling or dental crown put in place, your dentist’s intention is for it to remain in position permanently. Unfortunately, our teeth are not capable of healing naturally after damage from a cavity or injury, so we need these restorations to provide long-term support. So what should you do if you no longer feel confident that a crown will remain secure? Your Baxter, MN dentist can take a look at the problem and provide the necessary care. In addition to making sure your tooth is supported by a secure restoration, we can perform a careful review to determine if you might need additional services to preserve your oral health. (more…)
When you need to replace a tooth that is in poor health, or one that is already missing, you may wonder just how much support your prosthetic will provide. At our Baxter, MN dentist’s office, we can provide a custom restoration that offers lasting support while staying in position. With a custom dental bridge, we can secure your appliance without the need for oral surgery. In addition to improving the way you look when you smile and speak, it will be stable enough to let you return to a natural, comfortable bite function!
If you want to avoid cavities, prevent gum disease, and generally maintain confidence in the way you look, you should have a consistent smile care routine in place. That means brushing at least two times a day, and it also calls for you to floss each night. What you should know is that these habits should be supplemented by your scheduled teeth cleanings. At every routine visit to your Baxter, MN dentist’s office, you will undergo a thorough teeth cleaning as well as a review of your oral health. These cleanings remove tartar buildup, which will help you avoid potential problems with your smile and oral health. (more…)
Keeping your smile in good health means doing more than just stopping cavities from forming. You should also be attentive to your periodontal health.

There are actions our Baxter, MN dentist’s office can take during a routine dental appointment that will help you avoid potentially serious problems with gum disease. Through scaling and root planing, we can remove bacteria responsible for causing gingivitis so that your tissues have the opportunity to heal. (more…)
