Approximately 6 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe sleep apnea according to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research. While many people simply do not realize they suffer from sleep apnea, top Lawrenceville, NJ dentists say this is a serious disorder that can have very serious effects on a person’s overall health. Both Dr. David Schor and Dr. Vivien Mesina are members of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and say that after attending the Academy’s annual conference, they are even better equipped to deliver effective dental treatment proven to correct obstructive sleep apnea.
Dr. David Schor, and Dr. Vivien Mesina of Imagine Advanced Dental Arts offer specialized sleep dentistry treatment, which is designed to help the nearly 6 million Americans suffering from moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. Treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea at the New Jersey cosmetic dentistry practice includes a highly effective combination of dental procedures including the fabrication of oral appliances when CPAP is inappropriate for the patient.
In addition to disrupting healthy sleep patterns, sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, hypertension, and possibly lead to strokes. While these concerns can be addressed successfully with treatment, Dr. Schor says many people do not realize they suffer from sleep apnea until someone else brings it to their attention.
Regardless of the type of treatment his patients undergo, Dr. Schor says the disorder requires immediate attention because of the detrimental effects it can have on a patient’s overall health.
As he points out, “Patients suffering from sleep-disordered breathing have increased risk of motor vehicle accidents, hypertension/cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, and stroke.”
