At Brown and Gettings, DDS, we do more than handle your oral care. As you may know, our team is passionate about all aspects of your overall health. One area in particular we may discuss with you are your sleep habits and the quality of sleep you feel you may be getting each night. We are able to treat our patients who may be suffering from a common sleep condition known as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious condition in which individuals stop breathing multiple times throughout the night. It occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax during sleep, blocking the airway and restricting your breathing. Dr. Gettings recently became a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, also known as AADSM. She took a few minutes to explain more about the seriousness of sleep apnea and a treatment option that our practice offers to help patients get the quality sleep they need. Click here to watch.

Experiencing a dental emergency is never fun, especially if it involves your front teeth. It can leave a patient feeling traumatized, upset and self-conscious. Your smile is a part of who you are.

When patients visit the office for a routine hygiene examination, the biggest concern is always tooth decay and if cavities need to be treated. This is especially true of our very young patients who may have never experienced a cavity or gotten a filling. Cavities form when the dental enamel, the outer covering of the tooth, becomes damaged from decay. This can be caused for a variety of reasons and is easily treatable. However, there is a treatment that is beneficial in preventing cavities from developing. Read on to learn more about this simple, yet effective treatment.
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we not only care about our patients’ oral health, but their overall health as well. When you visit our office for a routine hygiene examination, we do more than just clean your teeth and inspect for decay, we look for signs of weakness in your teeth and mouth that can lead to serious complications in the future. One red flag that indicates a problem is worn teeth. Worn teeth can be a sign that you are clenching and grinding your teeth, a condition known as bruxism.
