For an Implant Dentist, Lansing, MI, Turns to Dr. Hagerty

November 3, 2015

dental implant

Research from the American College of Prosthodontists shows that approximately 175 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and more than 35 million do not have any teeth, or are edentulous. And as the population ages, the number of people with missing teeth is expected to increase. Unfortunately, a number of negative consequences result from missing teeth. Many people have difficulty speaking and eating, because of course teeth are critical to enunciation and chewing. Still others are reluctant to smile or laugh because they know people will be able to spot the hole in their smile. Thus, missing teeth are often the reason for both physical and emotional problems. Fortunately, residents of Lansing, MI, have a highly skilled and educated dentist they can turn to for tooth replacement with dental implants: Dr. John J. Hagerty.

No, no one ever wants a mouth emergency, but they seem to surprise us anyway from time to time. Sunday afternoon bike rides are big offenders when it comes to broken or knocked-out teeth, and so are car accidents.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Lansing, MI

August 20, 2015

snoring man, awake wife

Tell the truth—do you and your significant other share a bedroom but not a bed? Well, if you answered yes, then you’re in good company. Research from Ryerson University in Toronto estimates that between 30 to 40 percent of couples sleep in separate rooms at night. According to Colleen Carney, the director of the Sleep and Depression Lab at Ryerson, even though people say they sleep better when their bed partner is next to them, brain monitoring proves the opposite to be true. When test subjects slept together, monitors show that their brain did not enter the deeper stages of sleep, because it was repeatedly awakened.
