Snoring: Bad for Relationships, Bad for Health
Date:7/31/2014

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

In today’s world, a good night’s sleep has become especially valuable, and increasingly difficult to get. Snoring and sleep apnea (a medical problem where the airway collapses during sleep and breathing stops) rob people and their bed partners of the rest they need to face their daily challenges.

Up to 45% of the population snores and 20 million people in the United States alone have sleep apnea. Of these, only 10% have been diagnosed and treated; and of those treated, many cannot tolerate their prescribed medical device known as CPAP (continuous positive air pressure supplied through a nasal mask) – which supports the airway during sleep.

Small, comfortable, dental mouthpieces that hold the lower jaw in a forward position have been proven to support the airway to prevent collapse, and have been approved as a primary treatment in mild to moderate sleep apnea – and, as an alternative to, or in conjunction with CPAP when needed. This treatment is called oral appliance therapy (OAT).

Snoring Isn’t Sexy® was formed to alert the public of the medical dangers and social hazards of snoring and sleep apnea, and to connect snorers and sleep apnea sufferers with a specially trained dentist in their area who can provide oral appliance therapy.

Mayoor Patel DDS, a Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist in Atlanta, Georgia provides this treatment for snoring and sleep apnea patients. Dr. Patel is one of five dental professionals in Georgia to be Board certified in Dental Sleep Medicine (DABDSM). Additionally, he is the only Dental Practitioner in Georgia and in the southeast to be triple-boarded in Craniofacial Pain, Orofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine.

Dr. Patel received his dental degree from the University of Tennessee in 1994 and then completed a one year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). He also earned a Masters in Science from Tufts University in 2011.

Dr. Patel has taken well over 1400 hours of postgraduate education courses and since 2003, he has limited his practice to the treatment of TMJ Disorders, Headaches, Facial Pain, Sleep Apnea and Snoring. Dr. Patel lectures locally and nationally both to the dental and medical community in the area of Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. He is passionate about helping his patients get the quality sleep they need to be healthy.

"I am fortunate to be in a profession where I can make such a positive impact on people’s lives. When a patient tells me that I helped save their marriage, helped save their life, or gave them the confidence to achieve new goals, I realize I am so privileged to be doing something so special," says Dr. Patel.
