Summer is winding down soon!

Every summer, especially in August, we have a huge rush of kids coming in and it then becomes very difficult to find a convenient time. So beat the rush! Give us a call for your kids' appointments before it gets too busy!

Summer is also a great time to have wisdom teeth removed! Young adults in the 17-early 20s are great candidates for wisdom teeth removal because:

1. the ability to heal and recover is much faster
2. your jaw bone is more pliable and flexible so removal of teeth are actually easier
3. you have summers off and there is plenty of time!

Dr. David Burden would love to help you out with your wisdom teeth removal!

Summer is hot and when it's hot, we might snore more. If you or your spouse notice that you snore a lot, you may have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where you will stop breathing when you are sleeping. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, your risk of heart attacks raise ~8x the average. Sleep apnea is highly correlated with high blood pressure, diabetes, excessive day time sleepiness, and more!

If you've fallen asleep at the wheel, are tired all the time, snore loudly, require frequent naps or are overweight, your chance of having obstructive sleep apnea is very high. Please visit this page to learn more and take our Epworth sleep test to see if you possibly have it! We can help you out with a sleep apnea device and change your life! If you've tried a CPAP and can't sleep with it, ask us how we can help.

Dr. Pham himself has sleep apnea and has been treated for it and can tell you his story of how it has changed his life!
