"I am not just a doctor- I'm a patient!"- Dr. Timothy Johnston
Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) May 14, 2010
Cosmetic Dentist Timothy Johnston is proud to announce that he now offers SomnoMed sleep apnea treatment. SomnoMed utilizes a custom oral device that prevents the airway from becoming obstructed, allowing patients to have a full night's sleep. Since there are many Obstructive Sleep Apnea treatments available, why SomnoMed?
"I am not just a doctor- I'm a patient!" Dr. Johnston answers. "I myself suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and have tried many different solutions, and when I tried SomnoMed, I knew my search was over. All my patients who use it feel the same way. It really is the best sleep apnea treatment available."
Most oral devices lock the jaw in place to prevent airway obstruction, but SomnoMed allows the jaw some flexibility, making the oral device barely noticeable. It is small and obviously easily portable, giving it a distinct advantage of the common Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)machines, which are bulky and noisy. "Hands down, SomnoMed beats every treatment I have ever used or seen," says Dr. Johnston. "I couldn't be happier with the treatment, or prouder to offer it to my patients."
In addition to now offering SomnoMed, starting in July, patients will be able to have their sleep study done at their home. "One of the difficult things about Obstructive Sleep Apnea is not the actual diagnosis, but patients understandably don't want to spend the night somewhere unfamiliar knowing people are studying them," explains Dr. Johnston. "Now they'll be able to take the equipment home, put it on before they go to bed, and it records all the information we need."
Dr. Johnston has been practicing Cosmetic Dentistry for over 20 years since founding the Norge Dental Center in 1989. He continues to teach at the MCV School of Dentistry, as well as continuing his own education so as to stay on the cutting edge of the latest in dental technology and techniques. He also speaks on practice management, and writes articles on clinical techniques and has been published internationally.
