Sleep apnea is a widespread epidemic. It is estimated that 80% of the population have a form of sleep apnea. If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause serious health problems, including high blood pressure, liver problems, daytime fatigue, type 2 diabetes, and even death. People with obstructive sleep apnea may not be aware that their sleep was interrupted. In fact, some people with this type of sleep apnea think they sleep well all night.
I have a true interest and desire to help patients feel as comfortable as possible throughout their appointment and make sure they have a positive experience.

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, teeth whitening may be an excellent choice for you. Many patients of Dr. John F. McMahon and Dr. John M. McMahon suffer from darkened teeth due to the natural aging process, regular consumption of coffee or tea, or nicotine staining from cigarettes.
Some people may have darkened teeth due to long-term use of medication. Certain medication-related stains on the teeth cannot be lightened, but virtually every other type of teeth stains can be effectively lightened using either professional dental whitening or at-home whitening.
While both types of whitening have benefits, at-home kits are less expensive and less effective overall. Professional teeth whitening is a highly effective option, but it requires a bit more of an investment. Here is the basic info on each type of whitening.
At-home whitening is done in a number of different ways today. Some of the most popular options include:
In-office whitening is the fastest way to achieve whiter teeth. If you want an almost immediate difference in the color of your teeth and their overall appearance, this is probably the option for you.
Dr. John F. McMahon and Dr. John M. McMahon will typically apply the whitening formula directly to your teeth. Following the application, we will have you relax in our office between half an hour and an hour.
Some office-whitening formulas are strengthened with the use of heat, specialized lighting, or laser application. Patients will usually notice whitening results after only one application, but it usually takes at least a few appointments at McMahon Family Dental to notice a truly dramatic change in tooth color.
"Providing great customer service and helping patients with all of their insurance needs are my goals at McMahon Family Dental."

When you are having trouble with your teeth, one of the worst parts of the experience can be making multiple trips to the dentist instead of getting everything done in one trip. CEREC allows you to save time and get better results by taking advantage of advanced technology to restore your teeth with a crown, inlay, or onlay.
Yes, absolutely. A recent survey by Oral-B® reveals that despite knowing that a healthy, good-looking smile affects not only their personal wellness but their professional image as well, very few people (only 14 percent) brush and floss at the office regularly. What’s more, three quarters of people who responded to the survey said they ate twice or more a day at work.
Today, Dr. John F. McMahon and Dr. John M. McMahon and our team thought we would provide some tips for brushing at work.
And remember to brush for 30 to 45 seconds across visible parts of the teeth. Brushing after breakfast or lunch will eliminate any remaining food particles and odors. We recommend people brush their teeth twice and floss once a day to remove plaque and other harmful bacteria.
