Snoring: Bad for Relationships, Bad for Health

Conway, SC (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) robs 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.

Jeffrey Horowitz DMD, a Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist in Conway, SC provides this treatment for snoring and sleep apnea patients. His broad knowledge of general dentistry, orthodontics, laser dentistry, and TMJ dysfunction has earned him a noteworthy reputation within the dental community.

Dr. Horowitz pursued his undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1991. Dr. Horowitz has dedicated himself to continuing education, earning his Mentorship status at the prestigious Kois Center for Advanced Dental Studies, and fellowships in the Pierre Fauchard Academy and the Academy of General Dentistry. Also, he is board eligible member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Since 1995, Dr. Horowitz has been treating sleep disordered breathing in children as a major contributing factor to tongue-thrusting and inadequate arch development. In 2005, his interest in this area led to treating adult patients who were diagnosed but unable to tolerate C.P.A.P. therapy. Since that time, he has worked with local pulmonologists, G.P.'s and E.N.T.'s treating obstructive sleep apnea while utilizing his orthodontic knowledge to complement oral appliance therapy.

"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. Horowitz.
