Dental Care of North Carolina Provides More Effective Solutions to Sleep Apnea
Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea, but the CPAP masks frequently used to treat it often pose problems of their own, Dental Care of North Carolina reports
For Immediate Release
Morrisville, N.C — One in five adults (1 in 5) in America suffers from a sleep disorder. That is 74 million people. The most common sleep disorders are Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Insomnia and Restless Leg Syndrome. Obstructive Sleep Apnea impacts your heart, blood pressure, ability to concentrate and stay awake, and the length and quality of your life–to name just a few of the issues this epidemic presents. One of the most common recommendations in our country is to wear a continuous positive airway pressure mask (CPAP). This device is cumbersome and has a low utilization rate of 38%. With low compliance, the apnea goes untreated.
At Dental Care of North Carolina, Dentist Dr. William Gross regularly helps patients find more effective and comfortable ways of managing sleep apnea. Sleep Apnea Services offered by Dental Care of North Carolina include the fitting of mandibular advancement devices and soft tissue repositioning appliances, either of which can end up being far more effective and less disruptive than a CPAP device.
“Sleep apnea is a serious problem that affects a large portion of the population,” said Dr. Gross, a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Dental Medicine with more than 30 years of experience as a dentist. “Many people suffer from sleep apnea for years without ever being diagnosed, but even becoming aware of the problem does not always yield a satisfying solution right away. The CPAP masks that so many are advised to use to treat sleep apnea are bulky, noisy, and uncomfortable, often leaving those who wear them unable to sleep for those reasons. We’re very proud of the work we do helping people who suffer from sleep apnea find solutions that suit them better.”
In addition to its highly effective sleep apnea services, Dental Care of North Carolina is one of the region’s best-reviewed Family Dentistry practices.
