Sealants — Dental sealants are an effective defense against tooth

bonds to the depressions and grooves in the back teeth,

preventing corrosive bacteria and food particles from settling there.

The sealant is quickly and easily applied to the surface of each

tooth and hardened with a laser. It provides several years of

protection and reinforces the effects of regular brushing and

Sleep Apnea, Headaches, and Migraines


People affected by sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly in their sleep due to airway obstructions, a failure of the brain to prompt breathing, or a combination of both. As a result, their sleep is frequently interrupted and inadequate; over time, this can cause cardiovascular problems, memory and concentration lapses, weight gain, impotence, and headaches. Fortunately, there are many treatment options, including positional therapies, weight loss, and surgery. For many patients, placement of a specially designed oral appliance eliminates headaches, migraines, and other unpleasant side effects of sleep apnea. This removable appliance alters the shape of the mouth during sleep in a way that helps clear the nasal passageways, enabling steady breathing throughout the night. Contact Dr. Habbel's practice for more information about this highly effective oral appliance.

Teeth grinding, arthritis, and bite problems can affect the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) located on either side of the jaw, which control jaw movement. Any interference with the temporomandibular joint can cause a painful TMJ disorder characterized by headaches; ear, jaw, and neck pain; or clicking noises when the jaw is opened and closed. Dr. Habbel's treatment of TMJ problems offers significant relief for patients with any of these symptoms. Using stress reduction, relaxation techniques, and mouth protectors to prevent teeth grinding, Dr. Habbel reduces pressure on the temporomandibular joint, enabling it to heal while symptoms gradually fade and disappear.

pain-free care makes the procedure surprisingly stress-free. Since Dr. Habbel has extensive training and experience performing root canal therapy, you will not have to visit an outside specialist. As a skilled endodontic surgeon, Dr. Habbel performs root canals in a single procedure, after which most patients enjoy a speedy recovery.

Root canal procedures are performed when a tooth's inner soft tissue becomes irreversibly damaged by infection, cavities, or trauma. The root canal procedure removes this tissue to preserve teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted. If you are in need of root canal therapy, Dr. Habbel is the dentist for you. While no one  looks forward to root canal reatment, Dr. Habbel's commitment to

Endodontic Therapy


In addition to affecting dental health, periodontal disease can harm a person's overall well-being. In particular, gum problems have been linked to heart disease, stroke, complications during pregnancy, diabetes, respiratory problems, and osteoporosis. To help prevent these systemic health problems, Dr. Habbel is pleased to provide periodontal treatment of the highest caliber.
