Sleep apnea is a debilitating sleep disorder in which a person actually stops breathing at numerous points throughout the night. Usually, a person isn’t aware that they wake up gasping for breath after these episodes. A spouse or partner is typically the one to alert them of the instances.
Although dentists cannot provide an official diagnosis for sleep apnea, these professionals are often the first people to come into contact with the disorder and can provide further guidance and even initiate treatment.

Although approximately 85% of people will need to have their wisdom teeth removed at some point, some people won’t have a problem with these third molars and will leave them in. When your wisdom teeth don’t have room to come in all the way, they may only erupt through the gums partially, or push horizontally against the other teeth. Either way, these impacted wisdom teeth can cause damage through crowding or problems with the gum tissue. Partially erupted wisdom teeth can cause bacteria to grow, causing pericoronitis, or an infection in your wisdom teeth.
What are the signs of a wisdom tooth infection? Here’s what you need to look out for!

Patient satisfaction is the foundation of our practice, and these kind words mean a great deal to us.
“This place is top notch! Lisa is the best dental hygienist I have ever had. I don’t normally have a strong opinion of healthcare professionals, but she really goes above and beyond to form a relationship with her patients and make sure they feel relaxed and comfortable. She is so warm and always happy. She felt like a trustworthy friend after just one visit!
My dentist was Dr. Bucker and the experience was always very pleasant. Thankfully, I didn’t need any actual work done so our time together was limited, but, if I did I would have 100% confidence in Dr. Bucker.
I recently moved out of the area and just had a terrible experience with one of those “chain” dental groups. I felt homesick for this dental group immediately. It is hard to find high-quality trustworthy healthcare. This place is definitely it.”
