The fact that aging is a natural and inevitable process for all humans, does not necessarily mean that all the undesirable impacts of aging must simply be accepted as a matter of course. Staying active mentally and physically can significantly delay the effects of aging, so any person who keeps active can look and feel younger than their true age.
Along those same lines, it's also possible to retain a more youthful appearance, and for a much longer time, by addressing some of the most prominent signs of aging, which are the wrinkles, folds, and crow's feet which can appear around the facial area. One of the best ways to effectively combat those signs of aging are with Juvederm, an injectable gel which adds volume to the skin and virtually makes wrinkles fade away.
In a short period of time, Juvederm has become one of the most popular anti-aging, non-surgical treatments in this country, per statistics issued by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Here are some of the reasons why Juvederm has become the choice of so many people, all of whom are seeking to present a younger-looking appearance to the rest of the world.
Advantages of using Juvederm
First of all, Juvederm treatments are extremely safe and require no surgery at all, so treatments are easy for both doctor and patient. Because the process is simple and relatively free of risk, there is usually no recovery time needed, so it's usually possible to resume normal activities immediately after a treatment. There are several other injectables which can be used to accomplish the reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, but Juvederm has proven to be one of the most effective, in part because of the smooth consistency of its composition. Some other injectables are more granular in composition, which causes their results to be less smooth and less natural-looking.
One of the most attractive features of Juvederm is that it's mostly composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally and abundantly in the human body. Hyaluronic acid has some beneficial properties of its own, increasing skin hydration while adding volume to both underlying skin tissue and the skin itself. Since Juvederm is not obtained from animal tissue, it does not require any kind of testing before usage in cosmetic enhancement.
Juvederm results also tend to be much more long-lasting than some other injectables, and as a result, it has received FDA approval for its exemplary safety record and its efficiency. It is also an injectable that is suitable for people of all skin colors, which is something that cannot be said for some other treatment gels.
Receiving a Juvederm treatment is a process which takes only around 15 or 20 minutes, and as previously mentioned, it is a non-surgical process in which the gel is injected directly into specific target areas on the skin. Results are often immediately obvious, and the enhancement to the facial area can be literally stunning. There are also several different types of Juvederm which can be used to address the various severity levels of aged-looking skin.
In short, some truly amazing results can be achieved in the facial area by using an injectable filler like Juvederm, but those results are always subject to the artistry of the skilled practitioner doing the work. To achieve the very best results possible for your specific circumstances, you should seek out a qualified cosmetic enhancement specialist who has demonstrated exceptional ability in this field, and who has earned the respect of both peers and industry organizations.

What to Look for in a Dentist
When you have sleep apnea, it means that you temporarily stop breathing while you sleep. While it is a serious medical condition that can occur as often as 30 times in a single hour, people are often unaware that they have it.
Sleep apnea can cause you to wake from a sound sleep in a panic because it feels like you are choking or gasping for air. Since this may only last a few seconds, you may forget all about it in the morning. However, the interruption in breathing can last up to two to three minutes in some people. When this happens often enough, sleep apnea changes from a mild annoyance to an emergency that could threaten your life. The reason for this is that sleep apnea disrupts the balance between carbon dioxide and oxygen present in your bloodstream.
Categories and Symptoms of Different Types of Sleep Apnea
According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, approximately 20 percent of people with this medical condition have a type known as central sleep apnea. This type usually occurs due to faulty brain signaling. Basically, your brain forgets to send the message to breathe as you sleep. The result is an interruption in breathing that can happens several times per night but typically only lasts for a few seconds each time.
People with central sleep apnea often have an underlying health condition that causes it. The most common ones include:
- Arthritis of the cervical spine
- Cheyne-Stokes breathing pattern, which means you already have weak breathing
- Congestive heart failure
- Encephalitis, which means brain inflammation
- Heart attack
- Parkinson’s disease
- Surgery or radiation on the spine
Obstructive sleep apnea is the far more common of the two subtypes. This condition occurs because of a partial or complete block in your upper airways. The blockage means that your chest muscles and diaphragm must work extra hard to take air into your lungs. When your breathing resumes, you typically make a grunting, snorting, or gasping sound in your sleep although you probably won’t be aware of this. Unfortunately, untreated obstructive sleep apnea can lead to an irregular heartbeat because it reduces the flow of oxygen to your heart.
Even though shortness of breath while you sleep might not wake you up, pay attention to how you feel during the day for clues that could indicate obstructive sleep apnea. Feeling restless during your sleep for several nights in a row could be a symptom as well. Some other common symptoms associated with it include:
- Concentration difficulty, depression, forgetfulness, or irritability
- Daytime fatigue
- Difficulty waking up in the morning
- Dry mouth upon waking
- Night sweats
- Sexual dysfunction
- Sore throat upon waking
If you sleep with someone else, it’s likely that he or she will notice symptoms of either type of sleep apnea before you do.
How We Treat Sleep Apnea at Oasis Prosthodontics
We encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Marina Funtik as soon as possible if you recognize any of the symptoms of sleep apnea listed above. It’s possible that changing some lifestyle habits could help reduce your symptoms. Quitting smoking, losing weight if you’re overweight, and reducing the amount of tranquilizers or alcohol you consume are all things you can do to increase the likelihood of successful treatment.
In addition to her many dental credentials, Dr. Funtik is a certified Airway Prosthodontist. She has received extensive training from leading sleep apnea experts across the country. This makes her uniquely qualified to recognize even subtle signs of abnormal breathing. She will complete a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment.
Wearing a sleep mask or a special dental appliance during sleep is the first step in treating sleep apnea for many patients. The sleep mask forces your airways to remain open while you’re sleeping so you don’t stop breathing. If you find it uncomfortable to wear a sleep mask, a dental device that applies gentle pressure to push your jaw forward might be a more appropriate form of treatment. The appliance also works to keep your tongue from blocking any of your airway passages.
People who fail to find relief from either of these treatments may wish to consider corrective surgery that forces the tongue to remain in place. Of course, every patient is unique and these are just some of the possible treatment methods used by Dr. Funtik. Please contact Oasis Prosthodontics today to schedule your sleep apnea consultation.
