Questions to Ask Prior to Oral Surgery
Posted on 4/15/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Anytime you are having oral surgery, and you should ask as many questions as you can think about when you come in for your consultation. During this appointment, we will go over your case, and you will probably get a set of x-rays, so our surgeon can evaluate your condition. We will go over our findings and explain why there is a need for surgery. Ask as Questions Before Oral SurgeryAsking questions will put you at ease regarding the procedure. People get anxious when they hear they need surgery and want to know why they need the procedure and how long the recovery will be. Here are some questions you may not think about to ask our oral surgeon. These are all critical questions, and some are related to our office's track record. If you want additional information or testimonials from staff or patients who have used our services, please don't hesitate to ask. We are happy to answer any concerns, so you feel completely at ease during your oral surgery. If you go home and think of other questions, make sure you call us or stop by before your procedure....

Snoring Can Leave You Facing Tooth Loss, But We Can Help
Posted on 3/20/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Sometimes snoring is just an annoyance, but there are many times that it points to something worse. If you snore, you should mention it to us the next time that you come in for an appointment. We want to make sure that your snoring is not part of a larger issue, and that it will not lead to tooth loss. Teeth GrindingBruxism is also known as teeth grinding. People who grind their teeth at night are risking all kinds of damage to their teeth, including potential tooth loss. The good news about teeth grinding is that there are things that we can do to help with the problem. Often all that it takes is a special mouthguard that will be worn at night. That could fix the problem with bruxism, and also help you to stop snoring. Sleep ApneaSnoring is often a sign of sleep apnea. This is when someone misses breaths while they sleep. There are some types of sleep apnea that will not require a dental visit, but if you have obstructed sleep apnea you will want to see us. With obstructed sleep apnea, there is something obstructing your airway while you sleep. A dental appliance might make all the difference. A dry mouth is a sign of sleep apnea, and over time a dry mouth can lead to tooth loss. Sleep apnea can also affect many other aspects of your life. If you have obstructed sleep apnea, we want to work with your ear, nose, and throat specialist to find the right solution for your situation. No matter why you snore, it is a good idea to mention it to us. We will rule out dental issues and will also make sure that your teeth are strong and not affected by the snoring....

Sleep Recommendations Following Oral Surgery
Posted on 3/10/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
One thing that we will tell you if you are having oral surgery is that you need to get plenty of rest immediately following the surgery. That is sometimes easier said than done. Here are some recommendations for sleeping after your oral surgery. Incline One thing that is very important after oral surgery is that you sleep at an incline. Ideally, your head should be at an angle of at least 45 degrees from your heart. This can often be obtained by adding another pillow. If you are in bed and you can feel throbbing in your jaw, there is a good chance that you are not sleeping at the correct incline. Sleep Position One of the hardest things to do after oral surgery is to find the right sleep position. We recommend that you sleep on your back for a couple of nights. You do not want to roll onto the side that you had the surgery on and risk lying on the sore part of your mouth. Medications You will of course need to follow the directions for any medicines that we prescribed for you. Before you get into bed, make sure that you have followed the directions on all of your prescriptions, especially an antibiotic. You must take the full course of the antibiotic, so double check before you go to bed. Do not take any medicine for sleeping after oral surgery, unless you have talked to us about it first. This includes any herbal remedies. Sleep is important after a surgery, and sleep position is as well. If you have any questions about sleep or anything else that has to do with aftercare, please ask us. Remember that your recovery will not take too long, and that you will be able to sleep in your favorite position once again before you know it....
