BROOKLYN, NY, September 07, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- An estimated 40% of adult men and 24% of adult women suffer from habitual snoring, according to a report by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). In addition, the AADSM has found that 50% of snorers have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a dangerous, life threatening disorder that affects nearly 20 million Americans.
Dr. Jacques Doueck at 563 Kings Highway Brooklyn, NY 11223 is a member of the I Hate CPAP Network - http://www.brooklyn.ihatecpap.com/
- which provides an appliance alternative to CPAP for sleep and snoring suffers who can't tolerate CPAP or want a comfortable no-mask treatment option.
OSA happens when the tissue in the upper-airway blocks the entire airway, causing a pause in a person's breathing. This blockage keeps air from getting into the lungs, lowering a person's blood-oxygen levels. For OSA sufferers, this pause in breath can happen for 10 to 30 seconds, sometimes for one minute or more, hundreds of times a night.
Oral appliance therapy is much better tolerated by patients and treatment compliance is estimated at 90-95%, according to the AADSM. "Oral appliances for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea offer patients a treatment option that is safe, effective and easy to use," according to the National Sleep Foundation. Oral appliances are also approved by the FDA.
