New York, NY – If you are among the 25-30 million adults in the US who have suffered from obstructive sleep apnea, or have a bed partner that snores in a disruptive way, then you know how it can negatively affect your and/or your partner’s day. Sleeplessness and poor sleep quality can lead not only to excessive day time sleepiness, but more significant medical concerns including weight gain, forgetfulness, blood sugar variability, heart disease, high blood pressure and tragic accidents to name just a few. Finally, New Yorkers have a convenient solution that may not only improve the quality of their life, but add precious years as well.
Dental365Sleep was primarily established to improve the likelihood that patients with sleep related breathing disorders like obstructive sleep apnea and snoring would be identified, screened and then guided to the most appropriate care as a result of collaboration with the medical community. Knowing that people visit the dentist on a more routine and repetitive basis than visits to physicians, Dental365Sleep recognizes the opportunity to not only send screened patients to sleep physicians for consultation, but to also be a respected and sought after provider of customized oral appliance therapy (OAT).
Up until the past 15 to 20 years, most people who snored and/or had Obstructive Sleep Apnea were primarily treated with CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy. Although CPAP has been shown to be an effective sleep therapy, the necessity to wear a facial mask (of all shapes and sizes) attached to an air pump, has been an impossible option for over 60% of patients. As a result, many suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and disruptive snoring have either given up on this therapy or shied away from trying it all together. As a result, oral appliance therapy, which has been scientifically proven to be effective and embraced by patients, has gained a great deal of attention.
These appliances work by preventing the tongue from falling back into the airway and creating obstruction of airflow. As a result, airflow occurs with less resistance with the end result of easier breathing and the reduction or elimination of snoring and or obstructive sleep apnea. The Dental365Sleep team has been well trained and ready to provide thoughtful care to ensure maximum compliance/benefit, ultimately leading to a more restful night of sleep.
Once the severity of the patient’s sleep-related disorder is established and it is determined they may be a candidate for an oral appliance, Dental365Sleep will walk patients through each step and make the process as seamless as possible. In addition our insurance specialists are available to assist efforts in maximizing insurance benefits that are often available. With many locations throughout New York City and Long Island, Dental365Sleep is posed to influence how sleep breathing disorders are identified and managed in the years to come.
