Does My Dentist Know I Don’t Care For My Teeth?

At NYC Smile Spa, we encourage our patients to visit our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning every four to six months. The time between visits is determined based on the state of your oral health. Children, teens, and most adults should visit the dentist every six months, while those with conditions like gum disease will need to see us more often. During these visits, we can determine quite a few things about your brushing habits as well as the types of foods you eat and some of your habits.

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.
