I went to Dr Taxin to be fitted for an oral appliance to treat sleep apnea. After using it for 4 nights I woke up this morning feeling so refreshed, which was such a foreign feeling. I had completely forgotten what it felt like to feel rested after sleeping through the night. It had been so long. I had the best day ever today! I had boundless energy, felt so alert, my vision was clearer and even my breathing problem has disappeared. If you're thinking about getting an oral appliance, don't wait. I wish I had done this much, much sooner. This little device could improve your quality of life tenfold!!

I had a great dental experience. The staff was engaging, courteous, and professional. The office is child friendly, with lots of colorful mobiles. Dr Simon is the consummate professional, with a strong knowledge of all aspects of general, and pediatric dentistry, combined with a gentle touch.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
