BLUE ASH, OHIO – November 16, 2016 – Complete Health Dentistry of Cincinnati has introduced Sleep Health Dentistry, a new practice focused on treating snoring, sleep disorders and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with dental sleep therapy. The practice targets individuals in Cincinnati who are among the estimated 60-70 million people in the United States who suffer from chronic sleep disorders and nearly 20 million people who have Obstructed Sleep Apnea (OSA). Complete Health Dentistry is now aggressively screening patients for sleep apnea, offering solutions to treat both mild and moderate OSA with an advanced sleep device.
“Sleep apnea is a serious health risk, especially for individuals who have not been officially tested and diagnosed with the disorder, yet are suffering from the symptoms,” said Dr. Eric Henize, D.D.S., owner of Complete Health Dentistry. “We are hearing from more and more of our guests about their struggles with sleep. With our focus on complete health, we have always consulted our guests on solutions, but Sleep Health Dentistry packages the processes and solutions into a comprehensive treatment that will truly benefit sleep apnea sufferers. This is one more way that we are treating the mouth as the gateway to better overall health.”
If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a number of health problems from high blood pressure and stroke to heart failure and diabetes. The most common medical treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine. There is a more comfortable option that can be successfully used by 95 percent of sleep apnea sufferers. Complete Health Dentistry’s sleep health dentists are specially trained in oral appliance therapy, which includes fitting patients with custom FDA-approved Mandibular Advancement Devices. The device looks like a mouthguard and has proven to be nearly as effective as a CPAP machine in preventing OSA.
“Sleep is critical to overall health, but it is often dismissed or overlooked,” added Dr. Henize. “Our goal is to provide the right treatment to help our guests beat the negative effects of sleep disorders. When someone finally has several good nights sleep in a row, the results are life-changing.”
