Replacing your missing teeth is a vital aspect of maintaining your oral health. Missing teeth can cause your other teeth to shift or loosen, increase your risk of gum disease, and impair your sense of confidence. At our Shawnee implant dentistry practice, we recommend dental implants to replace your missing teeth and to help retain dentures. Dental implants have many benefits.They mimic real tooth roots, which keeps your jaw from losing bone mass. Dental implants are also aesthetically pleasing while offering strength and functionality that last for years to come.
Discover Dental Care is proud to offer Invisalign as an orthodontic solution for teens and adults seeking straighter teeth and healthier smiles. The clear aligners are nearly invisible…allowing you to straighten your teeth without obvious wires, metal brackets, and colored rubber bands. Invisalign has many advantages, which includes the ability to remove the aligners to eat meals and to brush your teeth. Dr. Houting is a Certified Invisalign Provider for teens and adults who live in Shawnee and all surrounding areas.

According to the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, “an estimated 50-70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders.” One of the most common sleeping disorders is called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Patients with this condition stop breathing during nightly rest. Most sufferers are unaware that they have OSA. Diagnosis usually occurs after the abnormal pauses in breathing or other symptoms, such as loud snoring or gasping and choking, are witnessed by another person. Untreated sleep apnea increases the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart failure. In Shawnee, KS, sleep medicine dentist Dr. Castaneda can alleviate you or your loved one’s snoring and sleep apnea symptoms with quality, customized treatments.
