Root Canal Basics

For root canals in Aurora, you can find the best quality dentist at Retro Dental Aurora to give you a painless solution

Sleep apnea originates from Greek language and literally means “without breath.” Sleep apnea is an involuntary cessation of your breath that occurs when you are asleep. There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central and mixed. The most common is obstructive (very often called OSA). In all three instances, those who are untreated stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night; sometimes up to one hundred occurrences that will last for one minute or longer. Most of the time, the sleeper is unaware of his/her condition, because these instances do not trigger a full awakening. We have been trained through LVI and the leading Sleep Dentists in the world. We offer the latest technology with the Micr02 appliance, which is by far the most comfortable product available for Apnea. We use this device in conjugation with a neuromuscular evaluation to make sure that throat muscles or tissues do not block your airway when you fall asleep. Such obstruction means that your body is not getting the oxygen it needs and this can be a dangerous condition. We are confident that we can help you if you exhibit any sleep apnea symptoms.

How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?

It’s not always obvious when you need a root canal. The symptoms can vary widely so here are a few things to watch out for:

Waterlase And Root Canals

Need a root canal in Aurora, come to Retro Dental Aurora to experience the newest and greatest technology of Waterlase

With the new technology of Waterlase, dental practitioners have started changing the treatment for root canals. Waterlase uses a high-pressure water system to clean out and remove dead tissue and infection from your root’s canal. With conventional root canals, there will be times when the procedure will leave behind bacteria after the root canal is filled and sealed. In contrast, Waterlase has proven to clean the root more thoroughly to removing microorganisms that are hiding in your dentinal tubules or tiny holes. This laser approach pierces deep into your permeable tubules, eliminating bacteria without injuring or causing pain to the surrounding tissues. Traditional root canals only clean out the tooth’s root, while Waterlase will actually sterilize it This increases your chances of a successful root canal procedure. Waterlase is a great new technology and we have it!
