Snoring Isn't Sexy Launches Public Awareness Campaign

Snoring: Your Dentist Can Test So You Can Rest

New York (Vocus) May 28, 2009 -- There is a not-so-silent killer in this country, and most who are vulnerable to it, don't even know. Snoring is more than an annoyance. It's both a symptom and a condition that signals serious, potentially deadly, health problems. The member dentists of Snoring Isn't Sexy® have united to promote the awareness of the consequences of Snoring and Sleep Apnea with a new campaign called "Snoring: Your Dentist Can Test So You Can Rest."

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea go hand-in-hand, and can lead to heart disease, stroke, brain damage, Diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and accidental injury. Your dentist can not only help detect whether you have these conditions with a screening evaluation, but offer a possible solution in the form of an oral appliance. Many patients who suffer from snoring and OSA cannot tolerate CPAP machines; likewise they have decided against surgery, which is irreversible.

In conjunction with the Public Awareness Campaign, Snoring Isn't Sexy, LLC is releasing an e-book entitled "Snoring and Sleep Apnea Self-Awareness Toolkit" available at no cost at The toolkit contains information about snoring and sleep apnea, contains self-testing questionnaires, and advice on choosing a dentist who has received post-graduate training in sleep medicine.
