We care about our patients, which is why we practice biologically safe dentistry. We believe that your oral health is the keystone to overall wellbeing. Scientific research continues to show links between periodontal infections and ailments such as heart disease, strokes, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes. In addition, Discover Dental Care is a mercury-free practice, and we use tooth-colored, composite fillings to treat cavities. Shawnee dentist Dr. Castaneda is a proud member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, an organization that believes in using biocompatible, scientifically-proven approaches to dental care.
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.
Replacing your missing teeth is a vital aspect of maintaining your oral health. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry states, “replacement of lost teeth with dental implants has been used for treating missing teeth for more than 50 years.” 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 zirconium dental implants to replace your missing teeth. 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 American Association of Orthodontists says that aligner systems, such as Invisalign clear braces, “progressively move teeth toward their desired positions.” Invisalign has many advantages, which includes the ability to remove the aligners to eat meals and to brush your teeth. Dr. Castaneda is an Invisalign Preferred Provider for teens and adults who live in Shawnee and all surrounding areas.
Did you know a University of Illinois study showed that generally happy people who smile all the time live ten years longer? Your smile also has health benefits—such as lowering blood pressure and boosting immunity. A beautiful smile gives you confidence, too. At Discover Dental Care, we can use cosmetic dentistry to enhance your smile. Our Zoom! teeth whitening services brighten yellowed enamel. CEREC single-visit crowns restore your damaged teeth. Our Shawnee cosmetic dentist can even give you a total smile makeover with porcelain veneers and Lumineers.
