innovative new device possibly used to help diagnose sleep apnea!

A new device could help dentists diagnose and treat Sleep Apnea

An electronic nose could be utilized to help dental professionals diagnose obstructive Sleep Apnea – a syndrome that wakes sufferers up hundreds of times a night – by detecting the presence of materials in the breath of the patients.
Unfortunately this prototype is still being researched, so it may be some time before you will see this appliance used at our dental practice.

The facts on Sleep Apnea…

Sleep Apnea is similar to snoring in that the muscles relax in the back of the throat, however instead of vibrating they fall back completely; cutting off the airway and causing the sufferer to awaken. This can happen hundreds of times a night without the sufferer even being aware!
If you suffer from:
• Loud and chronic snoring
• Choking, snorting, or gasping during sleep
• Long pauses in breathing
• Daytime sleepiness, no matter how many hours you sleep
It is time to book an appointment at our Thousand Oaks dental practice for an examination, as you may be suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which has been known to be a dangerous and sometimes even life-threatening condition.

How is Sleep Apnea treated?

We believe in early diagnosis and treatment to ensure you obtain the best results and can enjoy your quality of life. Once diagnosed we refer you to an ear, nose and throat specialist for detailed tests and examinations, and will then run some sleep tests, radiographs and scans. After this is completed we discuss your results and determine the best course of treatment to take.

keep your teeth white and beautiful with these four tips!

Just had a cleaning treatment and want to keep your teeth as healthy and white as possible? At Laura Fathi D.D.S in Thousand Oaks, we hear you…

We have all enjoyed the feeling of professionally cleaned teeth after visiting the dentist, but the hardest part is to ensure they stay looking and feeling beautiful! That is why at Laura Fathi D.D.S in Thousand Oaks we have compiled four tips to help you keep your smile white!

1. Use a straw when drinking!

It may be surprising, but it is exceptionally effective to help prevent your teeth from discoloring or decaying! Since the straw funnels the beverage straight into your mouth your teeth are saved from being subjected to acids and sugars that can contribute to tooth discoloration.

2. Eat your vegetables!

As it turns out, vegetables can boost the whiteness of your smile! This is because crunchy vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli and apples act as natural tooth cleansers.

3. Keep up your calcium

It is a widely known fact that calcium helps strengthen bone tissues and as it turns out, helps keep your teeth white, too! Teeth depend on calcium to maintain their health and structure.

Keep your teeth beautiful with Laura Fathi D.D.S in Thousand Oaks…

If you are after a quick and easy tooth whitening treatment at Laura Fathi D.D.S, we offer a tooth whitening procedure that takes less than an hour and can whiten your teeth significantly! Dentists are trained to diagnose the source of your tooth discoloration, so let us treat you to ensure you gain the best results!

revitalize your smile and strengthen your teeth with dental bonding!

Enhance the esthetics of your smile and restore your teeth simultaneously!

A modern dental technique, dental bonding is perfect for small restorations on teeth or when only a small portion of the tooth needs replacement. Dental bonding creates discreet, natural looking results that can be completed within just one appointment!

What is dental bonding?

A safe and effective treatment, dental bonding is a form of cosmetic dentistry and utilizes no amalgam or mercury-based materials, which means an environmentally friendly dental treatment! Formed from composite resin, dental bonding can match the exact shade, translucency and color of your existing teeth – meaning no one will even notice you’ve undergone treatment!

What is dental bonding used to treat?

Dental bonding is an extremely effective treatment and can be used for a wide range of oral conditions such as:
• Decay
• Gaps between teeth
• Chips in teeth
• Spots on teeth
• Discoloration or stains on the surface of teeth
• Straightening crooked teeth
At Laura Fathi D.D.S in Thousand Oaks we endeavour to help keep your smile functional and beautiful, and utilize this treatment so our patients can experience minimally invasive procedures to correct, restore and repair their smiles.
If you have been shying away from visiting our Thousand Oaks dental practice, and are suffering from tooth or gum soreness, pains, aches or any other oral issue, our advanced and effective treatments will ensure you leave our practice smiling!
For more information on our dental bonding treatment or to book an appointment at our Thousand Oaks dental practice, please contact us.
