sleep apnea and your daily life

How Sleep Apnea Can Affect Your Daily Life

At NYC Smile Spa, we do more than just help patients with their oral health. We are also passionate about helping those who suffer from sleep apnea. If you are unfamiliar, sleep apnea is a serious condition in which a person stops breathing multiple times throughout the night. It occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax during sleep, blocking the airway and restricting your breathing. Those who suffer from sleep apnea may experience issues such as severe snoring, headaches, dry mouth, and trouble sleeping.

why we recommend professional teeth cleanings

Has It Been A While Since We’ve Seen You?

We are passionate about our patients visiting our office for routine oral hygiene examinations. Do you remember the last time you visited our office for an examination and cleaning? If it has been some time since your last visit, you may be due for an appointment. Since we are still so fresh into the new year, it is the perfect time for a visit. No matter how well you clean your teeth on your own throughout the year, routine dental exams are a must. Read on to learn about the importance of a professional teeth cleaning and examination.

dental phobia

What Is Dental Phobia?

At NYC Smile Spa, we specialize in treating patients who suffer from dental phobia, a serious, often paralyzing, fear of visiting the dentist. Many people who struggle with dental phobias stop visiting the dentist altogether and often end up developing serious issues with their oral health. Eventually, this can lead to problems with eating and living everyday life. Postponing routine dental care and necessary treatments can lead to more complex dental problems and the need for additional treatments. This is not ideal for someone who suffers from dental anxiety. It can become a vicious cycle.

Our goal is to help our patients understand their choices and choose an option that is best for their overall lifestyle as well as their budget.
