Stop Snoring Now!

Obstrucive sleep apnea (OSA) afflicts many people. Untreated, OSA can lead to heart problems, strokes, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Snoring ( a sign of restricted airflow and impeded breathing during sleep) also can result in excessive daytime sleepiness and headaches.

Treatment Of OSA and Snoring: The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances like the myerson ema appliance as a treatment for snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea, and in cases where a CPAP has not been tolerated. The FDA has approved the meyerson ema appliance for the treatment of both sleep apnea and snoring.

If either of these conditions afflict you or a family member, we will be happy to schedule you to be fitted for one.

When brushing teeth with toothpaste, the minty taste and slick feeling from the paste, may give us the sense that we have done a good job brushing. Within 20 minutes that “fresh” feeling is gone because we did not remove enough bacterial biofilm and those germs left behind have multiplied. Try “dry brushing” once a day. Use a toothbrush without anything on it- not even water. Place the brush along the gumline and brush until your mouth feels fresh (about 2 minutes). Follow with quick brush with toothpaste to get the benefits of fluoride and you are finished.
