Signs You May Need Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom tooth removal is a very common dental procedure. In fact, it seems that most people have their wisdom teeth out in their late teens. However, while many patients do require extraction, the procedure is not necessary for everyone. Dr. Georgaklis will not recommend removal if it is not necessary. He can often help you to manage your teeth, so you will never need an extraction. Through regular exams, he can monitor the development of your teeth and look for any complications. You may also notice symptoms that could indicate the need for removal. For example, if you suffer from third molar pain, an extraction at our San Diego practice may be the optimal solution. If you do require this treatment, Dr. Georgaklis will use extremely gentle techniques, resulting in minimal discomfort. […]

Handling Pain Holistically

More and more people are waking to the awareness that our bodies are not comprised of compartmentalized systems that work independently of one another. It is true that modern medicine has made incredible advances thanks to the study and comprehension of how our nervous, digestive, circulatory, and other systems operate. But these systems all work together to support the health of one body. They are integrated, and damage to one system can have far-reaching impact to the rest of the body. This is the basis for holistic dentistry at our San Diego practice. […]

Acid, Food, and You: A Holistic Dentistry Solution (Part 1)

It’s important to remember that the human body is one interconnected unit.

Understanding the Causes of Sleep Apnea

Apnea is the Greek word for “without breath”, so sleep apnea is sleep without breathing. Sleep apnea is very common and often becomes more frequent as age increases. If an individual stops breathing during the night, oxygen levels in the body fall. If this continues to occur frequently, blood oxygen levels could plummet to serious health consequences. Therefore, sleep apnea should not be taken lightly and should be addressed by those affected. Fortunately, I can often treat mild to moderate sleep apnea at my San Diego practice. […]
