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. Whether it’s you or someone else that suffers from it, the disease can be awful for patients and their partners. Getting a full night’s worth of sleep is necessary for your health. It can affect all aspects of your life away from your bedroom. If you’re not getting the proper amount of sleep, it can carry over into your work life and put your job on the line. It can also penetrate into your social life as you may not be so inclined to meet friends out after work and instead opt for an early bedtime. We don’t want you suffering from this disease any longer. It’s time to take back your nights and give yourself the sleep you deserve.

Root Canal Therapy from Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ

March 15, 2015

480377293Root canal. Unfortunately, a bad reputation precedes it, and that’s just not fair! Thanks to advancements in dental procedures and the administration of dental anesthesia, root canal therapy is not painful. Moreover, a root canal can help you save a tooth rather than go the route of extraction. Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ, expertly and gently performs root canal therapy, so you can focus on life and not your aching tooth.

One of the primary indications of the need for a root canal is a toothache. A toothache typically occurs when a tooth becomes infected. To understand how this can happen, let’s first look at the structure of a tooth. Enamel is the protective, outer surface of a tooth. The next layer is dentin, which is softer and more sensitive. At the core of each tooth is dental pulp. With nerve and lymph tissue as well as blood vessels, the pulp is the tooth’s lifeline. If the pulp becomes infected, whether because of severe decay or traumatic injury, then the tooth begins to die. Allowed to progress, this infection can spread to the gums, jawbone and even further.

Root Canal to the Rescue

With a root canal, Dr. Carollo can arrest the infection, eliminate the pain and save the tooth. And the procedure is actually rather straightforward. Once you are comfortable and the tooth and surrounding tissue are adequately anesthetized, Dr. Carollo accesses the pulp to clear the infection and any accompanying debris. The pulp chamber is then filled with an anti-bacterial, biocompatible material and then sealed. After a few weeks when Dr. Carollo is certain that you’ve healed well, he will likely want to place a permanent crown on the tooth to restore its appearance and normal function. Until then, you’ll wear a temporary crown to protect the tooth after root canal therapy.

Call Our Office Today

If you suspect that you may have an infected tooth, then call the office of Dr. Carollo to schedule an appointment for root canal therapy. We serve patients in Florham Park, NJ, as well as the surrounding communities of Milburn, Morristown, Livingston and other communities in Northern New Jersey.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month: Bring the Kids to Dr. Carollo for Pediatric Dentistry

February 15, 2015

467777161Valentines and presidents only get one day in February. But children get the whole month! The American Dental Association has designated February for National Children’s Dental Health Month. Establishing good hygiene habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits help children set a solid foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. With this in mind, Dr. John A. Carollo would like to welcome your children and teenagers to his practice for outstanding pediatric dentistry in Florham Park, NJ.

Although Dr. Carollo would like to begin seeing your children by the time they are three years old, pediatric dentistry actually begins much earlier, and it begins with you. When you see that first pearly white erupt through your baby’s gum, it’s time to begin cleaning. Just take a soft cloth moistened with warm water and wipe your child’s baby teeth and gums after feeding. As they grow and their smiles fill out, you can begin brushing with a small, soft toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste.

Visiting Dr. Carollo for Pediatric Dentistry

When you bring your child to Dr. Carollo for a checkup, you’ll notice that we’ve gone the extra mile to make sure they’re comfortable in our office—we have books, televisions and video games. As we do with adult patients, we’ll clean your children’s teeth, evaluate the health of their gums (because children are not immune to gum disease), and examine their teeth for early signs of decay.

In addition to these standard checkup services, we may also recommend a fluoride treatment to strengthen your children’s tooth enamel and dental sealants, which are applied to molars for an added layer of protection against decay-causing bacteria.

Call Our Office Today

February is a short month, so schedule an appointment today for pediatric dentistry with Dr. Carollo in Florham Park, NJ. We also conveniently serve adults and children 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.
