More than 40 million Americans are estimated to suffer from sleep breathing disorder and more than 20 million suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). 93% of woman and 82% of men with Sleep Apnea remain undiagnosed. OSA is a physical condition caused by the airway to collapse resulting in an interruption in breathing that lasts longer than 10 seconds. Breathing problems for as little as 11 minutes a night DOUBLE the risk of death.
Some symptoms of Sleep apnea include:
- Loud Snoring
-Always tied, trouble concentrating
-choking sensations while sleeping
-excessive sweating at night
-waking up with dry mouth
-frequent trips to the restroom at night
How do we screen or diagnose Sleep Apnea? By a sleep study either done in a sleep lab or at home in your bed. Sleep testing is covered by Medicare and almost all major MEDICAL plans. Untreated sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases, memory problems, weight gain, impotency and headaches. Fortunately sleep apnea can be diagnosed and Treated. If patients are intolerable to a cPAP machine an oral appliance can be used and is now the first line of treatment options for mild-moderate OSA. Ask our team members on how we can help you sleep better and have a better quality of Life!!!!!

Spring break is next week. Yeah for the beautiful weather. Hope everyone enjoys (that gets a spring break) their time off, rejuvenate, and enjoys the this beautiful spring time weather.
Do you suffer from crooked teeth? Difficulty cleaning? collecting a lot food because of rotated teeth? Invisalign is a wonderful option. Invisalign is clear braces, that works just like the traditional braces but are clear and removable. The benefits of Invisalign vs traditional is easier to clean because they come in and out, they are clear no metal brackets, and usually the same or less time than traditional braces.
Dr Layman is running a fabulous special for spring time. She is offering $1000 off Teen, or Comprehensive Case, or $500 off plus 24 months interest free. Invisalign is a great option for those teenagers who are late to get ortho and don’t want to be in metal braces for their prime high school years.

Happy President’s Day. Hope all you government and state employee’s are enjoying your long weekend. We are working to get those in who have the day off so they don’t have to miss a day of work.
Straight Talk…..why are crooked teeth a problem. Thought I would share with you some issues crooked teeth can have on your health. If you have crowding you are more likely to get more build-up and tartar which harbors bacteria and increases your risk of periodontal disease, tooth and bone loss. Deep bite causing premature wear and chipping on the lower front teeth, Cross bite abfraction-small notch at the gum line. If your teeth are in malocclusion it can cause joint pain which could result in TMJ.
Malocclusion affects 74% of American adults. Staright teeth are healthier teeth. Straight, properly aligned teeth can help you avoid the negative effects of periodontal disease. The new way of staightening teeth is Invisalign.
Invisalign is clear braces. A great alternative to the metal traditional braces. With Invisalign get new trays every 2 weeks, and treatment is often shorter and easier than traditional braces. Invisalign is very affortable, and an added bonus if you have dental insurance. Most insurances give patients an extra allowed amount on top of the annual coverage.
Call Lesia for a complementary consult or talk with one of the Hygienist to see if you are candidate and lets get your mouth back to health and an added bonus you will have a perfect smile

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your someone special. Here at the office we are offering some wonderful Specials for you and/or your Sweetheart. Dr Layman is the top Lumineer Dentist in Arizona and is running a special on Lumineer’s. No Prep, No Drill, No Shots, No pain, easy way to change your smile in 2 appointments. Just want to brighten your color, a revolutionary bleaching system Dr Layman offers is KOR deep bleaching. An amazing bleach that can get an almost black tooth white. If you like supreme white, KOR is an awesome option for bleaching.
My name is JoAnna, I am one of Dr Layman’s hygienist. I have been with Dr Layman for 7 years. I learn so much here at the office. Dr Layman is always learning new techniques and keeping up with the most modern technology for the care of her patients.
New things in Hygiene. We offer a Laser Bacteria Reduction (LBR) treatment at your cleanings which helps reduce the amount of bacteria in our mouth. It’s a diode laser, set at a low setting which breaks up the cell wall of the bacteria that grow beneath our gum tissue. We know that the bacteria in our mouth forms a film underneath our gums where pockets form. If left untreated the bacteria starts to invade the connective gum tissue and blood vessels and gets into our blood stream and causes numerous health complications such as heart disease, stroke, complications in heart disease, respiratory disease and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Here in our office we are very pro-active and want to prevent periodontal disease in any way we can and we found that the Laser Bacteria Reduction (LBR) really helps keep the bacteria count down which is the primary goal to a healthier mouth, and in return over-all health of the body.

In this crazy economy and unstable time our patients have not been able to get the dental treatment they need and want. Some have lost their jobs or insurance and are now out trying to get new jobs. Unfortunately the world can be a cruel place to judge and make assumptions about people skills and intelligence based on their teeth and smile. The snap on smile has been an amazing solution to so many people. While it will not “fix” all your dental needs it serves as a great long term temporary solution. Here are a few before and afters of a very special patient who is near and dear to our office. While he is fortunate in his professional career he was unable to share his smile with his grand-kids and family. His story touched our whole office and it was our pleasure to help him find his smile again. He looks amazing!!

I just got off the phone and our favorite Glendale AZ dentist Stacey Layman. She has just touched down in Texas! We are so proud of Dr. Layman our international speaker! Thats right Lumineers invited their favorite dentist to speak at a conference in Amsterdam. We can now call her an international teacher of Lumineers. Dentists from the Netherlands are now that much closer to achieving their Lumineer dreams. The funny thing is all the before and afters she was showing were of nice white smiles and to them they were glow-in-the-dark white. The lightest shade they do is considered brown here in the USA. So they may be ahead of us in the fashion world but worlds away in beautiful white, healthy smiles. Teeth whitening is a dirty word he he he. So back to work on Monday morning.
