Goshen, IN (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.
Chad Stutsman DDS, a Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist in Goshen, Indiana provides this treatment for snoring and sleep apnea patients. Dr. Stutsman is excited about being able to help those who don’t like to smile, are afraid to see the dentist, and helping those who cannot use a CPAP machine to breathe at night and prolong their lives with Dental Sleep Apnea devices.
Dr. Stutsman received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1997 from Butler Univers
