With laser dentistry, mercury-free dentistry, and treatment options that can help patients suffering from chronic conditions brought on by sleep apnea or TMJ Disorder, Dr. Ang offers comprehensive care that promotes health for both you and the world around us.
Mercury Free Dentistry
In years past, the standard way to treat cavities and tooth decay was to place a dental filling utilizing “amalgam” material. This material was known to contain traces of mercury, in addition to resulting in a very noticeable metal appearance on the treated tooth. Dr. Ang is committed to using mercury-free dental materials for fillings and crowns. Along with eliminating your exposure to mercury, the composite or porcelain material we use for dental fillings and crowns is “tooth-colored,” making the results blend in with your natural tooth so much that it is often virtually undetectable. Plus, the absence of mercury-based materials at our practice means that there is no mercury to dispose of – allowing us to help the environment while giving you a healthier, more beautiful smile!
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Snoring and sleep apnea can be very serious conditions. In fact, sleep apnea can cause breathing pauses of 10 seconds or more while sleeping, which can lead to life-threatening health conditions, including sudden cardiac death. Dr. Ang offers a range of advanced, customized treatments that can help to open your breathing passages and give you a more restful, healthier night’s sleep.

TMJ Disorder and Migraine Treatments
Many people suffer from headaches, migraines, jaw popping, and other symptoms that may be associated with temporomandibular joint disorder, also referred to as TMJ Disorder or TMD. Dr. Ang can diagnose TMJ disorder and provide a customized treatment plan designed to relieve your symptoms and minimize the effects of the condition. Learn more about TMJ Disorder treatments.
