The Value of CEREC

Patients who need a new crown, bridge or other restoration of a broken tooth or teeth may be candidates for a superior dental technology called The Value in CERECCEREC.

Dr. Orobitg and his staff use CEREC’s 3D photography and CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology to create precisely designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges, usually while a patient is still in the chair… all within a single appointment!

CEREC is also great for repairing cracked teeth, and replacing old, unsightly metal or failing restorations. The ceramic material is natural-looking, bio-compatible with tissue in the mouth, non-abrasive and resists plaque. The CEREC process protects and preserves more of a tooth’s own structural integrity. And CEREC restorations are affordable, safe, beautiful, and save time and inconvenience.

  • Lifespan – Since they are made from a single piece of ceramic material, under normal circumstances CEREC restorations should last for years to come.
  • Natural Look – Older metal-based fillings and restorations often left patients with visible markers where natural teeth ended and fillings began. CEREC provides you with a consistent look that masks distinguishing features between the tooth and the restoration. Coloring can also be adjusted to match perfectly.

With more than 20 years of clinical research and documentation behind CEREC, CEREC bridges, crowns, or fillings may be the best choice for you. To find out if this is your best option, contact Dentist Eddie C. Orobitg, DMD at 352-702-4147 to schedule your appointment today.

The Benefits of Protective Sealants

Sealants are nothing new to the dental industry, but advances have made them an essential choice for many patients. Whether you’re a parent weighing their options about childhood dental hygiene or an adult searching for added protection from daily irritants, this method is redefining prevention. Consider these benefits that turned protective sealants into a solution anyone can appreciate.

Easy To Maintain

In the past, standard care between dental checkups consisted of brushing and flossing. The thought of adding another step to that care regimen left many patients feeling a sense of dread. Protective sealants offer that added level of care without the worries about maintenance. Once applied, the coating lasts for years and requires no day-to-day care.

Reduces Dental Care Costs

Cavities alone can become a costly proposition for anyone. When it comes to more complicated procedures like crowns, bills can be overwhelming. That’s why protective sealants are the best value out there. Simply having them protects enamel from dangerous conditions that lead to the pain and expense of major dental procedures.

Painless

It doesn’t get any better than a pain-free dental procedure. Protective sealants are easy to apply and feature no intrusive techniques. Only a mild solution is used to prepare enamel for better cohesion. The liquid or gel used in this first step of the process does not feature an irritating odor and never interferes with sensitive nerves.

Protective sealants are one of the best choices a patient can make. In addition to being an easy to apply preventative option, the procedure may also stop serious health issues later on. It’s never too late to try this exciting approach to dental care. Call Dr. Orobitg at (352)787-5919 today to schedule an appointment.

The Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea impacts your ability to sleep soundly and get the rest that your body needs. Over time, the poor quality of sleep that you experience can lead to a near-constant state of sleep deprivation.

The Issues

Do you know how detrimental sleep deprivation can be to your health and overall well-being? Common issues and problems abound:

  • Fatigue and exhaustion throughout the day
  • Problems concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Excess weight
  • Increased risk of cancer, heart problems, stroke and brain hemorrhage

As a sleep apnea sufferer, you’re likely familiar with the large, bulky CPAP/BPAP devices that are meant to be used to alleviate your problem. These machines are inconvenient, and the masks are often uncomfortable. Plus, there’s a lot of upkeep, daily cleaning, supplies and more. You may have given up. And who can blame you?

There’s Another Way

If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, there is a much simpler solution. Oral appliances and dental devices for sleep apnea help treat obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. These devices are called Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) and Jaw Advancing Devices (JAD) due to the way they work.

These appliances move your jaw forward to ensure that you have an unobstructed airway while you are sleeping. This eliminates or minimizes the air resistance that contributes to sleep apnea. These portable devices are compact and easy to use anywhere you sleep. They are unobtrusive, and patients are far more likely to continue use of a MAD/JAD over compliance with continued use of CPAP/BPAP machines.

Let Us Help You

Address your sleep apnea with an oral appliance dental device and reclaim restful sleep! Contact Dr. Orobitg in Leesburg to schedule a consultation and learn how this device can help you or a loved one suffering from sleep apnea.

What Should I Look for When Choosing a Dentist?

So how do you find the right dentist?

Finding a dentist you trust begins with finding someone who makes you feel comfortable during every visit. After all, you’re going to be long-term partners not just in your oral health, since studies have shown the health of your teeth and gums directly impacts your overall health.

So consider some of these when selecting your dentist:

  • Where was the dentist educated and trained?
  • What's the dentist's approach to preventive dentistry?
  • How often does the dentist attend conferences and continuing education workshops?
  • Is the dental staff helpful and willing to answer your questions?
  • Does the office appear to be clean, neat, and orderly? Do all surfaces and equipment in the treatment room appear clean?
  • Do you observe the dentist and staff wearing gloves and other protective gear during actual patient treatment?
  • Is the office easy to get to from work or home?
  • What are the office hours? Are they convenient for your schedule?
  • What is the dentist's office policy on missed appointments?
  • What arrangements are made for emergencies outside of office hours? (Will a colleague cover emergencies if he or she is not available?)
  • What type of anesthesia is the dentist certified to administer?
  • Is information provided about all fees and payment plans before treatment is scheduled?
  • Does the dentist participate in your dental health plan?
  • Is he or she interested in other conditions or health concerns you may have?
  • Does he or she have the training and/or experience to treat the dental health needs of patients with your specific condition.
  • If appropriate, ask if the dental facility is accessible to the disabled.
