At McGinty Dental Group, we offer a wide range of preventative, cosmetic, restorative, and holistic/biological dental services designed to help protect and repair the current state of your smile. A growing amount of recent research has found links between an individual’s oral health and a number of chronic health conditions that include diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and some types of cancer. As researchers continue to study the effects of oral disease on the body, it becomes more evident that tooth decay and gum disease pose a threat not only to an individual’s oral health but his or her long-term general health as well.
A Whole Body Approach
Dr. McGinty and Dr. Greear believe in a whole body approach when helping patients maintain and improve their oral and overall health. The connection between systemic diseases and oral health means that returning a patient to health may require additional treatment through such care as nutritional counseling, supplemental guidance, and referrals to chiropractors, naturopaths, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. Patients who visit our dentist office in Littleton, CO can feel confident they will receive the highest standard of care for their whole body, not just their oral health.
Whether you’re in need of a routine check-up and dental cleaning or a full-mouth restoration, the compassionate and professional staff at McGinty Dental Group can provide the treatment you need in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Many of us suffer from sleep apnea and may not even know it. If you find yourself waking up tired frequently, or your partner notices you having difficulty breathing as you sleep, you may suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is often characterized by short pauses in breathing, and it is known to effect an estimated 12 million people in the United States. This condition has also been linked with whole body health concerns such as high blood pressure, heart disease, memory problems, and drowsiness. To learn more about the sleep apnea treatments available to you at McGinty Dental Group, please contact our Littleton dental office today to schedule your initial consultation.
The TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint helps in the basic opening and closing movements of your jaw. TMJ pain can affect the entire jaw joint and even the muscles surrounding it that help in allowing our jaw and neck to move correctly. If you start having pain in your jaw joint or hear sounds like clicking or popping, you may be at risk for Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). At McGinty Dental Group, we offer a TMJ exam that will help to evaluate the joint and jaw and will work with you to find the best treatment or therapy options available.
