Take Care of Sleep Apnea Before It Ruins Another Night

June 18, 2015

Don't let sleep apnea ruin your nights.

Sleep apnea is a lot more common than you may realize. What used to be classified as excessive snoring, sleep apnea has come to the surface a bit more. Our Florham Park, NJ office specializes in sleep apnea cases and we want you to know that it may be happening and you don’t even realize it yet.

May 15, 2015

480753457While advances in technology have diminished the numbers, many people are still living with missing teeth.

All three options offer the same unique benefit: osseointegration.

Invisalign from Dr. John Carollo is the Clear Frontrunner for Straightening Teeth

January 15, 2015

177000598If you’ve ever contemplated getting braces to straighten your teeth, then you should know that it’s never too late and you’re never too old to straighten your teeth. So, even if you’re an adult who is busy with a career and family, you can still enjoy the cosmetic and oral health benefits of having a smile without crowded or misaligned teeth. While metal braces are always an option, a better choice for you might be Invisalign® clear plastic aligners. With Invisalign, Dr. John A. Carollo in Florham Park, NJ, creates beautiful smiles almost, well, invisibly.

Your first step toward a smile with straighter teeth is a consultation with Dr. Carollo. Here, you and the dentist will discuss what you want to achieve with orthodontia. Dr. Carollo will also thoroughly examine and assess the health of your teeth and gums, checking for any signs of decay or gum disease that needs addressing before you begin orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Process

Then, we will take x-rays, photographs and impressions that are sent to Invisalign where they create a 3D image of your teeth. This imaging allows Dr. Carollo to build a treatment plan that shows how your teeth will move over the course of treatment and how they will look when treatment is completed.

Also from Dr. Carollo’s treatment plan, Invisalign fabricates the clear plastic aligners that you’ll wear to straighten your teeth. The aligners are removable, so you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth as usual.

Your aligners are arranged in a series of sets for your upper and lower teeth. You’ll wear each set every day for approximately two weeks, and then you’ll move on to the next set. As you progress through each series, you’ll actually see your teeth gradually move into position. Others might not even notice because the Invisalign aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic. In most cases, Dr. Carollo’s have a straight smile in about one year.

Call Our Office Today

If you’d like to learn more about Invisalign, schedule a consultation with Dr. Carollo. We create beautiful and healthy smiles for patients in Florham Park, NJ, as well as in Milburn, Morristown, Livingston and other communities in Northern New Jersey.

Enjoy a Silent Night with Sleep Apnea Treatment in Florham Park, NJ

December 15, 2014

474189791Tell the truth: have you ever been told that you snore? Loudly. And often. Well, your snoring may be a sign of a serious condition—other than that elbow in the ribs every night. Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing during sleep, and although it affects men, women and children, men seem to be the most susceptible. Sleep apnea can lead to a host of general health problems, but if diagnosed properly, it can be treated. For effective sleep apnea treatment in Florham Park, NJ, patients rely on Dr. John A. Carollo.

Aside from snoring, the other indicators of sleep apnea are:

  • Gasping for breath during the night
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Poor concentration

Health problems that have been linked to sleep apnea include high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression. Obviously, treating sleep apnea is more than just a matter of restoring yours and your bed partner’s good night’s rest. Sleep apnea treatment can genuinely save your life!

Sleep Apnea Treatment with Dr. Carollo

Obstructive airway sleep apnea is the most common form of this ailment. During the night, your airway may become obstructed by muscle and tissue that relax while you sleep. Hence, the snoring. When this obstruction interferes with breathing, your brain sends the body a signal to awaken in order to restart breathing. This may happen hundreds of times during a typical night.

When you come to Dr. Carollo for sleep apnea treatment, we’ll begin with an assessment and a questionnaire. If we determine that you have sleep apnea, then we will recommend solutions. For many years, the CPAP (Constant Positive Airway Pressure) machine was the only option. Many people find them to be uncomfortable. Today, thankfully, Dr. Carollo can fabricate an oral appliance designed to keep your airway open while you sleep. Wearing this, you and your bed partner can enjoy night after silent night of restful sleep.

Schedule an Appointment Today

If you suspect that you or a loved one have sleep apnea, then call the office of Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ. We conveniently serve patients in Milburn, Morristown, Livingston and other communities in Northern New Jersey.

Speak the Language of Smile with Porcelain Veneers from Dr. John Carollo

November 10, 2014

100047604A smile is the one language that is understood around the world. Just a smile can say so much: “Hello.” “Nice to see you.” “Have a good day.” However, if you have teeth that you prefer to hide, then your smile may not be able to say much. Porcelain veneers can repair a number of dental flaws that require treatment. With porcelain veneers, Dr. John A. Carollo has returned smiles to the faces of many patients in Florham Park, NJ, and the surrounding areas.

Over the years, teeth can become unattractive for a number of reasons:

  • Chips and cracks, whether due to normal wear and tear or traumatic injury
  • Severe discoloration that can be genetic, but more than likely is caused by consuming coffee, red wine, colas, carrots and other deeply colored foods and beverages
  • Uneven teeth, whether from teeth grinding or daily wear and tear
  • Misaligned teeth or teeth with uneven spacing that may worsen with age

Porcelain Veneers to the Rescue

Porcelain veneers, which are micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are cemented to your existing teeth, can repair all of these imperfections. First, you and Dr. Carollo will meet to discuss your goals. He will perform a thorough exam and begin the process of designing your customized veneers. To apply the veneers, he’ll prep your teeth and then use a special dental bonding material to secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth. Then, if necessary, he will slightly shape and trim the veneers so they look completely natural.

Porcelain veneers are actually more resistant to staining than natural teeth. However, they are susceptible to chips and cracks, so you may need to avoid biting on hard foods, such as nuts or bones. But with daily brushing and flossing, and regular checkups with Dr. Carollo, your porcelain veneers will have you speaking the universal language of “Smile!” for many years.

Schedule an Appointment Today

If you’re wondering what porcelain veneers can do for your smile, then call the office of Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ. We’ll be glad to schedule a consultation. We also serve patients in Milburn, Morristown, Livingston and other communities in Northern New Jersey.
