Feeling Sleepy During the Day?

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness. Obstructive sleep apnea is defined as episodes of apneas (not breathing) which last more than 10 seconds and that occur during sleep. These episodes may occur hundreds of times per night and can lead to fragmented sleep. During these events, the individual’s oxygen level can fall to dangerously low levels (hypoxemia) and may result in cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), which can at times be fatal. Also, individuals with obstructive sleep apnea are far more prone to heart attacks and strokes.

Importance of Treating Baby Teeth

Why fix baby teeth when they’re just going to fall out? Some baby teeth may stay in until the age of 12! Baby teeth help the child chew, swallow and talk. They aid with the development of the jawbone, providing protection and guidance for the permanent teeth developing below plus proper spacing in the jaw. If a cavity in a baby tooth is left unattended, it may continue to expand and cause an infection in the gum. This, in turn, can cause facial infection or damage to the adult tooth underneath it.
