Other Treatments and Appliances
Dr. Triggs has spent his entire career continuing his education and expanding his skill set in order to make Alaska Dental Associates more convenient for patients of all ages. Our office offers appliances and advanced treatments to help patients in a variety of circumstances. Some of those include:
Mouth guards are appliances that are custom fit to your teeth. They help protect your teeth during athletic events, or even while you sleep depending on what you need specifically.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
Many people suffer from sleep apnea and have tried a number of different things to help alleviate some of the issues that it causes. Sometimes the right dental appliance can position your jaw and tongue in the right way to allow proper air flow which can cure sleep apnea.
Snoring is another airflow issue, so often, the right appliance can help some people get rid of snoring completely.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Many people live in pain due to TMJ disorder. Your temporomandibular joint is complex. If the joint and muscles are not working correctly it can lead to tension headaches that can be unbearable at times. Dr. Triggs can help determine whether or not your TMJ is functioning the way that it needs to be. This can be a major source of relief to many patients.
Our patients in our practice love the fact that Dr. Triggs can help them with so many of their dental needs. In many instances he can provide services that people might need to coordinate with two of three doctors in other situations. This is the convenience that our patients have come to love, and to expect from Alaska Dental Associates.
