Sleep apnea is a very serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with this condition stop breathing repeatedly while sleeping, which means the brain and many organs may not get enough oxygen.

Common symptoms of sleep apnea are:

  • Loud snoring
  • Waking up with sore or dry throat
  • Morning headaches
  • Sleepiness and lack of energy during the day

If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in complications including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart failure and heart attacks
  • Depression

Dr. Carota can provide dental appliances to improve breathing, improve quality of sleep, and prevent sleep apnea symptoms and complications to patients who were prescribed with a mandibular repositioning oral device to treat sleep apnea.

Temporomandibular joint disorders are a group of disturbances of chewing muscles and nerves that cause jaw pain, clicking of the jaw, teeth grinding (bruxism), clenching, muscle pain and soreness, as well as headaches and migraines.

We offer dental procedures and appliances to control symptoms and prevent further damage to the teeth, muscles and bones.

Close to 49,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer every year. Unfortunately the associated death rate is particularly high not because it is hard to discover or diagnose, but because it is discovered too late.
Risk factor for development of oral cancer include:

  • Smoking cigarettes or cigars - pipe smokers are six times more likely to develop oral cancer
  • Chewing tobacco products
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Family history of cancer and some others

We offer VELscope enhanced oral assessment to screen for oral cancer. Vx technology is a FDA approved screening method that allows visualizing unhealthy mucosal tissue that sometimes cannot be seen with the naked eye.

How Does It Work?

The VELscope® Vx handpiece emits a safe, visible blue light into the oral cavity, which is absolutely not painful and produces zero discomfort. This lights excites the oral tissue and causes it to fluoresce. The oral cavity can then be examined in real time, enhancing the practitioner’s ability to visualize suspicious tissue that may require further investigation.

If you have any risk factors for developing oral cancer or simply want to be tested, please schedule you appointment today. Remember: Early Detection Matters.

We offer a wide range of services including general dentistry to keep your teeth and gums in excellent health. We also offer cosmetic and restorative dentistry to enhance your smile and restore or replace damaged teeth.
