Dr. Steve Carstensen Treats Sleep Apnea – Improving Quality of Life for Sleepy People and Their Bed Partners
Date:1/2/2013

39; says Dr. Carstensen. "The reason most people seek therapy in the first place is due to bed partner complaints. Oral appliances help make breathing smoother and quieter during sleep, allowing both parties to enjoy more restful sleep" This study puts science behind what Dr. Carstensen has observed in his patients for years.

Other studies have linked improvements in sleep breathing disorders to lowered blood pressure and fewer cardiovascular problems over time. Lowered heart stress improves longevity and decreases chances of sudden cardiac death. "Dentistry improves quality of life by making attractive smiles, healthy gums, and correcting decay; this rarely helps someone live longer. Treating sleep apnea allows me to offer people a way to fix a problem and almost certainly let them live longer, healthier lives' adds Dr. Carstensen

Treating sleep apnea begins with using positive air pressure through a mask and hose connection to an air pump, called CPAP. This therapy, while effective, is not accepted by the majority of patients. Sleep physicians then rely upon trained dentists to provide custom oral appliances, similar to night guards used for tooth grinding, to open the airway. Many studies show patient acceptance of oral appliance therapy to be more than double that of CPAP.

Most dentists do not have the training to provide medical care for these patients with the sleep physicians; advanced education is necessary. Qualification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine shows commitment to the field through passing a rigorous examination and providing case reports of successful therapy using oral appliances.
