Sleep Apnea and Snoring Therapy in Canton, MI

March 20, 2015

474189791All is quiet. The house is dark. Everyone is asleep. Everyone, that is, except you, because the person next to you is snoring to beat the band! Did you know that snoring may be a sign of a much more serious condition called sleep apnea? For the sake of your loved one’s health—and so you can get some sleep at night—come to the Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, for sleep apnea and snoring therapy.

Sleep apnea is literally the cessation of breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of the condition. In this case, soft tissue in the throat and neck, including your tongue, relax during sleep and tend to fall back and block the airway. Consequently, there is loud snoring. Other symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Frequent trips to the bathroom during the night
  • Daytime sleepiness and difficulty concentrating

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Dr. J.D. Robison and his staff at Robison Dental Group can diagnose and treat sleep apnea, so you’ll once again be sleeping peacefully at night and avoiding a number of potentially serious health consequences ranging from high blood pressure and stroke to diabetes and depression. We will prescribe a custom-fitted intraoral appliance to wear at night. The appliance repositions your jaw in order to keep your airway open while you sleep. This appliance is simple-to-use, is easy to travel with and is a non-surgical, quiet treatment option that is proven successful for mild to moderate snoring and sleep apnea or for patients who do not tolerate CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure machine.

If you would like to learn more about sleep apnea and snoring therapy, call the Robison Dental Group. We proudly serve patients in Canton, MI, as well as the surrounding areas of Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, and Plymouth and beyond.

Straight Teeth for Every Family Member with Orthodontics in Canton, MI

November 15, 2014

87717422Sometimes, when a parent takes a child to the orthodontist for braces, they see those young teeth becoming straighter and they think, “How about me?” But then they might think, “I don’t need a mouth full of metal at my age.” At Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, your child can have traditional orthodontics to straighten their teeth, while you have Invisalign® clear braces for yours. The best of both worlds are available in one convenient location with Dr. J.D. Robison.

Braces, of course, are designed to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, an incorrect bite and jaw problems. Traditional braces consist of metal brackets that are secured to the teeth with special dental cement and then connected with a wire. This wire is held in place with bands that now come in a rainbow of colors. So, for younger patients, braces can be a chance to show school spirit or just have fun with color. These braces require scheduled appointments for tightening and changing the wire in order to control the pressure, which moves the teeth into place.

For adults, Invisalign clear braces—as the name implies—straighten teeth almost invisibly. So, if the concern is that having braces might compromise your social or professional life, then Invisalign can allay those concerns. These braces straighten teeth with clear BPA-free plastic aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for your upper and lower arches for about two weeks and then move on to the next set. As you progress, you’ll begin to see your teeth gradually straighten. Most patients can complete their treatment with Invisalign in about one year.

Call Our Office Today

So, if your child needs braces and you want to finally straighten your own teeth, schedule an orthodontics appointment for both of you at Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI. Our office also conveniently serves patients from Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

Dental Health and Your Diet

October 15, 2014

176800322What you choose to eat and drink everyday has a significant effect on the health of your teeth and gums. Even with a proper dental care routine, consuming excessive amounts of foods that are bad for your teeth can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Make an appointment with Dr. Robison today to maintain your good dental health. Robison Dental Group proudly serves patients throughout Canton, MI and the nearby communities of Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland and Plymouth.

Dental Health Boosters

  • Calcium Rich Foods– Consuming at least 1000mg daily of high calcium foods like milk, cheese, yogurt,  fish, kale and broccoli can help you maintain strong teeth and jaw bone.
  • Vitamin C Rich Foods– Eating one piece of citrus fruit daily like oranges, grapefruits, tangerines or kiwi can help to protect you from developing gingivitis as the vitamin C in these fruits helps the body repair tissues and fight off infection.
  • Tea and Tap Water– While drinking too much tea may stain your teeth, studies have shown that chemicals in black tea can reduce the growth of cavity-causing bacteria in dental plaque. Tap water contains fluoride, the same ingredient we use in our toothpastes to prevent tooth decay.

Dental Health Attackers

  • Dried Fruits- They are both full of sugar and sticky. Unlike regular fruits, they don’t help you produce the amount of saliva needed to wash the sugar away from your teeth. They can also get stuck in hard to clean areas of your mouth which promotes bacteria growth and in turn, tooth decay.
  • Sugary Drinks- This includes sodas, diet sodas, juices and sports drinks like Gatorade. Consuming these drinks bathes your teeth in acid that wears away the enamel. Consider cutting back on these drinks or at least using a straw to reduce the amount of acid hitting your teeth.
  • Alcohol and Coffee- Excessive amounts of alcohol can decrease the natural amount of saliva in your mouth which promotes bacteria growth. Alcohol can also irritate your gum tissues. Coffee can make your teeth sticky, allowing plaque to build up and making them harder to keep clean.

Dental Health Solutions in Canton, MI

Moderation is the key to developing dietary habits that protect your dental health. You can be proactive with your dental care by consciously incorporating foods that promote healthy teeth and gums and cutting back on those that don’t. If you are concerned about how your diet is affecting your dental health, make an appointment with Dr. Robison today to discuss your concerns. Robison Dental Group proudly serves patients throughout Canton, MI and the nearby communities of Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland and Plymouth.

What Causes TMJ Disorder?

September 15, 2014

506930955

If you are suffering from headaches or chronic migraines, a disorder of the jaw joint, or the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), may be the culprit. Dr. Robison offers comprehensive treatment and prevention therapy of TMJ disorders. He can evaluate your symptoms to determine if they are caused by a TMJ disorder. But what exactly causes a TMJ disorder in the first place?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Explained

Imagine the skull as two separate bone parts joined together by a network of joints and muscles. The lower part, or jaw, hinges upon the upper part of the skull through the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). When you open and close your mouth, the jaw bone rotates in its socket as your teeth part and then come back together. It’s at this point that things can go wrong.

When you bite down, your teeth are supposed to come into contact at the same time. However, for some people, their back teeth might come together before their front teeth. To avoid the pain that occurs when a bite is uneven, the brain and jaw muscles compensate. The jaw bone is pulled out of its socket to ensure that your teeth come together evenly. While you’re sleeping, this compensation causes clenching and grinding, and your jawbone stays out of its socket all night. These muscles eventually fatigue and your TMJ deteriorates leading to spasms and inflammation. You might also experience clicking and popping sounds and chronic aches and pains in the head, face and neck.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Early detection can prevent joint deterioration and get rid of the pain and discomfort it causes. Your dentist can customize a special orthotic plate for you to wear a night, which can stabilize the jaw joint relationship, alleviating the symptoms of TMJ disorder and preventing any further deterioration. If you suspect that your headaches and jaw discomfort symptoms could be caused by a TMJ disorder, contact Dr. Robison today to schedule a TMJ disorder consultation. Dr. Robinson proudly serves patients throughout Canton, MI community, including Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth and the surrounding areas.
