C-PAP Alternatives in Knoxville, TN

Do you or someone you know rely on a C-PAP to get a good night’s sleep? C-PAP machines are the gold standard for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and have helped countless patients get the oxygen and rest they need at night. What you might not realize is, there are other options available for people who cannot or will not wear a C-PAP machine. Oral appliances (also called Mandibular Advancement Devices) can be made to treat mild or moderate sleep apnea effectively.

 

Both treatments work by opening the airway. C-PAP works by forcing air down the airway in order be sure the patient is breathing appropriately.  Oral appliances work by positioning the lower jaw forward, thus pulling the tongue forward, and this also opens the airway.
Dr. Nutting will be happy to consult with your sleep physician if you so desire. In many cases the sleep physician will write a prescription for Dr. Nutting, increasing the chances your medical insurance may cover the sleep appliance. Contact our office today for more information.

Veneers in Knoxville, TN

For people wanting to make a significant change to improve their smile, veneers are the perfect solution. It seems everyone knows a least a little bit about veneers these days, thanks to Hollywood. Veneers are extremely thin ceramic facings that correct, color, shape, texture and size issues in a more conservative way than crowns. Veneers are the most common element of a “smile makeover” and very popular for cosmetic complaints that teeth whitening won’t correct on its own.

Veneers take more than one appointment to complete, but they last for years and are very strong. If you have questions or want to know if you might be a candidate for veneers, give our office a call today!

Short Term Aligners in Knoxville, TN

There’s a common statement we hear at Nutting Dentistry, “I lost my retainer and my teeth have shifted.”

This is in the top 5 of cosmetic complaints from our patients. We see it all the time. The teeth were nice and straight after braces, and while the retainers were being worn. Then, for some reason or another, a retainer is lost or broken. Most assume, “Well, it’s probably okay now. My braces came off a long time ago.” Most often the teeth do end up shifting, sometimes quickly and sometimes slowly. After the shifting occurs, patients are left wondering what can be done to fix the problem now? Most folks don’t want to go back into braces again.

What can you do?

Enter the Inman aligner. The Inman aligner is a brand name of a retainer that can more the teeth back into position, as long as there are no major movements. This treatment tends to be perfect for people whose teeth have shifted after they stopped wearing retainers.
