Brace face. Metal mouth. Tinsel teeth. Zipper lips. Braces are great at straightening teeth, but they also provide plenty of material for teasing. While you might be able to laugh at yourself as your teeth move into their proper places, you may not want to put up with the preconceptions that go along with braces. If you are an adult, you don’t want to look unprofessional. If you’re a teenager, you probably don’t want braces to show up in your yearbook photos. Fortunately, traditional metal braces aren’t the only way to get a healthier, more attractive smile. Invisalign in Grapevine can deliver results without many of the drawbacks of their old school counterparts.

Unfortunately, there are many reasons why people don’t sleep well: late night work, a recorded television show, and a new baby to name only a few. For some, however, lack of rest is because of a sleep disorder, the most common of which is sleep apnea. Some 20 million American adults have sleep apnea and an estimated 80 percent are undiagnosed. The most common form of this condition is obstructive sleep apnea, when breathing is interrupted because soft tissue in the throat obstructs your airway. Luckily, there is a solution. With sleep apnea therapy in Grapevine, Dr. Martin diagnoses patients and prescribes a custom-fitted oral appliance to maintain and open airway.
