Your Topeka Painless Dentist

ThinkstockPhotos-166637318Many people assume that dentistry has to be painful. Dental care is often portrayed negatively focusing on drills, and old fashioned tooth extraction. Patients who look terrified laying on uncomfortable chairs, so it’s no surprise how many millions of Americans report experiencing some level of dental anxiety. At Michel Dental, we don’t think visiting the dentist should hurt. Dr. Michael E. Michel and his skilled team will alleviate your dental pain without causing you more discomfort. Numerous dental health care issues have severely painful effects when left untreated. Preventive care and TMJ, endodontic therapy, and periodontic treatment from Dr. Michel, ensure you’ll have a lifetime of painless smiles. Call Michel Dental in Topeka, KS to schedule an appointment with painless dentist.

TMJ Dentist, Topeka

One of the most painful oral health care concerns a patient can experience is temporomandibular joint dysfunction often called TMJ or TMD. TMD may start as clicking or grinding in the temporomandibular joint (the joint that connect your jawbone – mandible to the rest of your skull), but TMD can lead to extreme pain when opening or closing your mouth, inability to open the mouth wide enough to eat or drink, headaches, neck pain, earaches, and even deafness in extreme cases. Dr. Michel has advanced studies in TMJ dysfunction and treatment through Bio Research prepared him to offer patients non-surgical answers to relieving their TMJ pain.

Endodontics Root Canal Therapy to Relieve Pain

Endodontics is the study and care of the inner tooth (pulp and nerves). Dr. Michel’s years of experience in endodontics make him an ideal choice to relieve pain related to infection of the inner tooth structures. You likely think root canal therapy has to hurt. Root canals have always been the stuff of dentistry nightmares, but innovative care from Dr. Michel will help relieve your pain not cause you more. Most of the pain associated with root canals is caused when the nerve housed inside the root canal is exposed to infection making the tooth extremely sensitive and causing pain. Root Canal Therapy removes the infection, but preserves as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.

Periodontics Gum Disease Therapy

More than 50% of Americans suffer from some level of periodontal (gum) disease. Gum disease can make eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, and other daily activities painful. More importantly, infection in the gums can spread through the body leading to fever and nausea, gum tissue or bone loss as well as increasing risk of heart disease, blood clot, and stroke. Periodontal therapy from Michel Dental will help you return to a healthy, pain free smile. By eliminating the infection and discovering the cause of the infection, Dr. Michel doesn’t just treat your gums. He helps you maintain periodontal health going forward.

Get Your Rest with Sleep Apnea Therapy in Topeka, KS

474189791Do you often feel tired or irritable during the day? Do the words, “stop snoring!” interrupt your sleep quite regularly during the night? All of these may be due to a condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea happens when you have a lapse in breathing during your sleep. These lapses may occur as many as 100 times in a night. Fortunately, there is treatment. Dr. Michael Michel of Michel Dentistry treats sleep apnea so patients in Topeka, KS, and the surrounding areas can enjoy quiet and restful nights.
The most common form of this ailment is obstructive airway sleep apnea. In this case, tissues relax while you are sleeping and may obstruct your breathing airway. Likewise, your tongue may fall back into your throat and block breathing. Snoring may also occur as breathing becomes strained and air tries to force its way through narrowed passageways. When this happens and your breathing is interrupted, your brain signals the body to awaken in order to restart breathing. If this occurs dozens of time each night, then you can surely understand why you may be sleepy and irritable during the day. Sleep apnea has also been connected with lower work productivity, automobile accidents and poor performance in school by children who have sleep apnea.

The Oasys Oral/Nasal Airway System™

Dr. Michel treats obstructive airway sleep apnea with an oral device called the Oasys Oral/Nasal Airway System. This FDA-approved snoring/sleep appliance combats snoring and sleep apnea in two ways:
• It repositions the lower jaw to open passageways and encourage optimal airflow, thus eliminating apnea episodes.
• Nasal passages are dilated to decrease airflow resistance and inhibit snoring.

Dr. Michel will specify your custom oral appliance to address your specific needs. Comfortably worn at night, the Oasys Oral/Nasal Airway System will have you sleeping peacefully and restfully night after night.

Schedule an Appointment Today
If you think that you or a loved one might have sleep apnea, then call the office of Dr. Michael Michel in Topeka, KS, for a consultation. We also conveniently serve patients in Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas.
