Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C), Health Canada and the Canadian Centre For Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

To ensure the health and well-being of our patients and team members, we have installed 2 different types of air purifiers at our dental office. Both of these are manufactured by the Canadian company, Surgically Clean Air.

Both of these filters perform their duties without being loud, (an industry-leading low level of about 55DB) or creating a “breeze” that can be uncomfortable for our patients. 

Some additional changes you may also see when it is time for your next appointment. For example:

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (403) 382‑2273.

So come on in to get your dental work done and enjoy Surgically Clean Air!

What Causes Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation isn't a disease, but it can lead to various health issues. There are various reasons why a person isn't getting adequate sleep.

Long Term Effects of Sleep Loss

Like kids, adults can also get cranky with insufficient sleep. Sleep loss can take a toll on your physical, emotional, and mental health. It can impact your daily life and relationships.

Treating Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious condition but there are treatment options to help you manage its symptoms and get better sleep.

If you’re experiencing sleep apnea symptoms, see your doctor immediately. One common method for diagnosing sleep apnea is undergoing a sleep study. Your sleep, along with other factors such as heart rate and airflow, will be monitored.

 A well-known treatment for sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP. You wear a mask over your nose and mouth, and the CPAP device will deliver air to your airway to help keep it open as you sleep. CPAP must be used as directed by your doctor.

If your sleep apnea is caused by misaligned jaw, our Lethbridge dentist, Dr. Lachman can work with you in customizing a dental appliance. This device is worn like a sports mouthguard and helps keep the airway open. It keeps the lower jaw in a forward position and prevents the tongue from over-relaxing and blocking the airflow.

Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea in Lethbridge area

If you would like to learn more about possible dental treatment options for sleep apnea or are not comfortable with using a CPAP device, you’re welcome to visit our dental office in Lethbridge. Let’s help you regain full night sleep and prevent potential health issues.
