Are you concerned that your child is not sleeping properly and may be experiencing a problem while sleeping? We commonly hear of adults experiencing sleep problems such as sleep apnea, but many people aren’t aware that children can experience many of the same issues. Sleep-disordered breathing can come out in children in three different ways: snoring, sleep apnea, and mouth breathing. If these sleep issues are not treated and continue throughout childhood, into the teenage years, and finally into adulthood, there can be serious complications with overall health.
As careful as we may be, an accident can happen at any time. If you experience an accident and your mouth or teeth are affected, it is important to remain calm and contact our office as soon as possible. We provide treatments that can fix any problem you may be facing. When you visit our office, we will determine which procedure, if any, is needed. A dental crown is one treatment that we commonly recommend for patients who experience a dental emergency due to trauma to the mouth or decay that has been left to progress. Are you familiar with this common treatment?
At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we are passionate about oral health. This is one of the reasons we recommend staying up to date with your routine oral hygiene examinations. During these appointments, we do more than just clean your teeth. We also thoroughly inspect them for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Any of these issues can have serious and lasting effects if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. Approximately more than 50,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Oral cancer can be located anywhere in the mouth, including the tongue, lips, cheeks, gums, and throat. The good news is that oral cancer is quite treatable.

Do you find yourself regularly waking up with a headache? Or do you frequently experience discomfort in your face and neck? If so, you may be experiencing the symptoms of a common condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder, also called TMD. This condition leaves patients with chronic issues that affect the muscles of the face and the temporomandibular joint, which is the hinge that connects the jaw to the skull. You can feel this joint when you touch the back of your jaw near your ear and then open and close your mouth.
At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we are happy to treat every member of your family. In fact, there is nothing more special than when a young person visits our office for their first dental visit. It is always exciting when a child reaches a new milestone in their life, and we feel a first dental visit is one of the best experiences. The child is learning about the importance of dental health from a young age. Once the first tooth emerges, or around the time of the child’s first birthday, it is time to visit the dentist for the first time. If you are reading this and realize your child has yet to visit the dentist, that is no problem at all because there is no time like the present to schedule an appointment.
Have you been told by family members that you snore loudly and keep them up at night? Or do you wake up in the morning feeling like you barely got any sleep? If so, there is a chance you are experiencing sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a very serious condition that greatly affects your overall health. It can lead to a number of serious health complications, and when left untreated, it can take a number of years off your life. Unfortunately, many people who suffer from sleep apnea remain undiagnosed.
