SleepApneaDisorder/ DEARBORN, MI/ January 28, 2012 /PressRelease/ — Patients suffering from sleep apnea and snoring can now seek treatment from Dr. Bruce Luria, Dearborn dentist. Dr. Bruce Luria is currently a member of the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and is pleased to share his expertise with other members of Luria & Birnholtz Family Dentistry and his patients to improve their quality of life.

The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) is dedicated to the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders through use of oral appliance therapy. As part of the AADSM’s stated mission, Dr. Bruce Luria, Dearborn, MI dentist, works with his patients to create a positive public awareness of sleep disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in Dearborn

“When breathing becomes partially or completely obstructed, a potentially life-threatening condition known as sleep apnea is present. The next time you are told you snore, don’t get embarrassed. Visit us for further diagnosis and treatment. I look forward to working with my patients to establish proper treatment for a better night sleep,” said Dr. Bruce Luria, dentist in Dearborn, MI.

Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing during sleep and is a common problem that affects both adults and children. Certain sleep apnea types can be treated by a dentist or oral surgeon. The National Institutes of Health estimate that more than 12 million Americans have sleep apnea, most often undetected or misdiagnosed.

When people are asleep, the muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax. The lower jaw and tongue drop back, blocking the airway opening. As the airway narrows, there is an increase in the velocity of air flowing through a person’s airway while breathing. This then causes the tissues in the mouth to begin to vibrate, which results in snoring. The sound heard when someone is snoring is actually the sound of the tissues in a person’s mouth and throat vibrating.

Patients who snore or know someone who snores, are encouraged to visit Dr. Bruce Luria, Dearborn sleep apnea dentist, today for further consultation. Oral appliances are comfortable, FDA approved, and easy to wear so that patients can end their snoring problems and achieve a better night’s sleep.
