While snoring is often seen as amusing it is the primary warning sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Slep apnea is not a Joke and it should be medically considered as serious as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life threatening condition that causes numerous medical conditions. It has been shown to cause a 600% increase in heart attacks and strokes and is implicated as an initiating factor of arthrosclerosis. Patients with sleep apnea have changes in insulin resistance and a tendency to gain weight. Changes in metabolism and sleep may cause problems with migraines, headaches, Dementia, Alzheimer's, fibromyalgia, TMJ Disorders, and Gastric Reflux. It is estimated that 80% of cases of ADHD are related to Sleep Apnea. Problems with concentration and memory are frequent complaints of patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. Patients with untreated sleep apnea have slower reaction times than people whom are legally drunk and a 600% increase in motor vehicle accidents. Metabolic syndrome from sleep apnea is now considered a major cause of obesity.

The primary warning signs are Snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness and witnessed apnea by their bed partners. Concerned spouses have saved hundreds of lives by recognizing the problem and getting their loved one to a qualified sleep center. Patients with untreated sleep apnea should consider letting their spouses drive especially if children or grandchildren are in the car.

The Gold Standard for treatment is CPAP or continuous positive air pressure where a mask connected to a hose and compressor keeps the patients airway open. CPAP is extremely effective when it is used. Unfortunately only 23-45% of patients actually use their CPAP. Even people who use their CPAP typically only use it for 4-5 hours per day not the recommended 7 1/2-8 hours a night. Many patients experience sinus problems, bronchitis and chronic coughs due to CPAP use. It s vital that masks and hoses be scrupulously cleaned on a daily basis.

Dental Sleep Medicine is the savior to many of these patients who do not tolerate or refuse to use CPAP. The majority of patients offered a choice between CPAP and Oral Appliances prefer the Dental Appliances. Compliance is 90-95% with oral appliances compared to less than 50% with CPAP. Sleep Apnea Dentists such as Dr Myles Preble bring new hope to patients suffering from Sleep Apnea. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has stated that oral appliances are a first line treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Oral appliances are considered a CPAP Alternative for severe sleep apnea when patients do not tolerate CPAP. Dr Shapira the founder of I HATE CPAP LLC states that not only does he see improvements in health and stamina but also it is amazing the effects eliminating snoring and sleep apnea has on marriages. A study at Mayo clinic showed spouses of snorers lose up to 15% of their sleep. Intimacy can be restored to marriages by proving a quiet sleeping environment. Most patients who have been treated for sleep apnea would agree that better sleep results in a better life.
