Sleep apnea, the cessation of breathing for ten or more seconds at a time during sleep, is a common sleep disorder, but studies have revealed that many patients’ sleep apnea goes undiagnosed due to the lack of understanding of this disease and how it effects patients’ lives. As part of our ongoing dedication to helping patients achieve and maintain their optimal level of oral and overall health, we provide comfortable and effective oral appliance therapy for patients suffering from sleep apnea. However, we can’t help patients unless they know they have sleep apnea. Read this blog to find out some of the most common risk factors and warning signs of sleep apnea, and contact our office if you experience any combination of these symptoms. We review your case, and we partner with a local sleep physician to coordinate diagnosis and treatment.

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.

Start the New Year off Right with Preventive Dentistry in Topeka, KS

December 24, 2014

Another New Year. Fresh start, clean slate, clean teeth. Yep, your read that correctly. Clean teeth. Why not start the New Year off with a beautiful and healthy smile? With preventive dentistry from Dr. Michael Michel in Topeka, KS, you and your entire family can look forward to a year of your best oral health.
As a family and general dentist, Dr. Michel’s primary concern is preventing oral health problems before you experience even one symptom. With this in mind, and following the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Michel and his team would like to see you and yours for dental checkups every six months.
At these checkups, we will clean your teeth and remove plaque, check for any signs of gum disease, examine for tooth decay and take x-rays when necessary to find hidden spots of decay. Of course, if decay is found, then Dr. Michel will want to treat as soon as possible with a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin. Left untreated, decay can lead to further tooth damage, the need for root canal therapy or even tooth extraction.
In the case of gum disease, the need for expedient treatment is likewise necessary. Dr. Michel will treat with deep cleaning below the gum line and antibiotics at the site. These will help eliminate the bacteria that causes the infection of gum disease. This bacteria can spread throughout the body and increase your risk of heart disease, pulmonary infections, gastric ulcer re-infection, and other severe health issues. Thus, healthy gums are not only imperative to your oral healthy, but to your overall health, as well.
Schedule an Appointment Today
If you would like to start your New Year with a clean slate and clean teeth, then call the office of Dr. Michael Michel in Topeka, KS. We also offer preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry services to patients in Topeka, Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas.

Fall is on the way and your children are heading back to school for another year of learning. Make sure they’re starting the school year out right by making sure they’ve had their regular dental checkup.  At Michel Dental, we recommend that once your child has reached the age of four or five that they should have two dental checkup appointments a year.

While back to school can often be a hectic time of year, it’s still important to make time to care for you and your child’s smile. With proper dental care, your teeth can last you for a lifetime. If it’s been a while since your child’s last dental checkup appointment, please give us a call today to schedule one.
