Gum Therapy and Periodontal Care

In addition to bad breath, these conditions can affect your total body health, contributing to heart disease and other serious illnesses. Thanks to the many advanced treatments our periodontists offer, Marshfield Dental Group can help you reverse — and manage — your periodontal disease.

“TMJ” stands for the temporomandibular joints, which are the small joints in front of each ear that attach your lower jaw to your skull. They allow you to open and close your mouth, chew, speak, and swallow. TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including major trauma such as an auto accident, teeth-clenching, or systemic joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
There are different types of TMJ problems that respond to a number of TMJ treatment methods, ranging from very conservative therapies to more aggressive approaches. Our multi-specialty dentists at Marshfield Dental Group are highly skilled in TMJ treatments. Together, we’ll work closely with you to determine the best course of TMJ treatment to alleviate your pain.
Sleep apnea, a disruption of breathing while asleep, is a particularly tricky sleep disorder – 90% of people who have sleep apnea don’t know that they have it! Although episodes of choking or gasping for air might occur hundreds of times throughout the night, you may not have any recollection of struggling for breath.
Usually, it is the bed partner who first notices that the person is struggling to breathe. If left untreated, this common disorder can be life-threatening.
Snoring occurs when the airway is partially or completely blocked. An example would be a tongue that falls back as we drift off into deep sleep. As the diameter or size of the airway passage is getting smaller, it results in snoring.
Apnea literally means “no breath”. There are three types of apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed; of the three, obstructive is the most common. Despite the difference in the root cause of each type, in all three people with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.
