A RESOURCE SITE FOR ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA

Dentists play an important role in the team approach to the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Physicians, dentists, psychologists and respiratory therapists all pool their knowledge to treat each patient appropriately and effectively, yet dentists who are specifically trained in aspects of sleep medicine and have a command of multiple appliance modalities are of great help to physicians in treating patients with sleep disordered breathing problems.

Ways to recognize and manage as well as treatment options for sleep apnea through the use of contemporary dentistry methods will be found on our site. As well, the site will provide information about oral appliance therapy.

The Greek word “apnea” means “without breath.” Millions of people suffer from the effects of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Many of them are struggling to find simple and effective options to resolve their problem. Oral appliance therapy may very well provide the solution. It has been proven to be a highly effective treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is very common and affects as many as twenty million Americans according to the National Institute of Health. Risk factors include being male, overweight and over the age of forty. Sleep apnea can strike anyone at any age, even children. Because of the lack of awareness by the public and healthcare professionals, the vast majority remain undiagnosed and therefore untreated, despite the fact that this serious disorder can have significant consequences.

We hope this site will allow you to be more informed. Knowledge is power!
