New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
Valentina Lyssova DDS and Lyssova Dental Wellness are now offering a new service to the public – oral appliance therapies for sleep apnea sufferers. Using a small, comfortable, non-invasive oral device (mouthpiece), the appliance repositions the jaw and improves airflow, reducing snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
Sleep apnea is a chronic and progressive (can worsen over time) condition that affects millions of Americans, and that poses serious health risks to sufferers. Treatment options vary from the easy and non-invasive to obscure home remedies to advanced surgical procedures to CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), a common and often effective treatment for mild to severe sufferers. Medications are rarely indicated.
The CPAP treatment consists of a box-shaped machine with an engine that pumps air through a tube into a mask worn over the nose or over the nose and mouth. The air is delivered at a high enough pressure to keep the airway open during sleep. Some users find it cumbersome or inconvenient.
“In our experience, what we are finding,” said Valentina Lyssova, “is that patients who are already on CPAP tend to report sleeping sounder with the appliance…and those who aren’t on CPAP yet, may never start CPAP treatments.” Often, a multi-pronged therapeutic approach is indicated. “The oral appliances are a simple and easy-to-implement therapy and a great first approach for many sufferers.” Valentina is an Ivy-League educated entrepreneur with advanced degrees and specialties that has been building her midtown dental practice for the past 7 years.
“This is a natural progression for us,” said Myles Samuel Iezzi, Marketing Director at Lyssova Dental Wellness, “we strive to serve our customer’s needs and to be on the cutting edge…these oral devices are offering sleep apnea sufferers another non-invasive option and we hope it to be an effective addition to our treatments and services.”
Anyone who believes they might have sleep apnea should try to gather more evidence, either by having a family member observe your sleep or recording yourself. The core behavior is “pauses” in breathing for a few seconds up to 30 seconds at a time – often followed by gasping for air. Severe cases may experience these apneas hundreds of times per night. Please visit the company website for more diagnostic information, symptoms, etc, or contact the company for a free consultation and find out about sleep studies and whether an oral device may be a sleep apnea therapy that could change your life for the better. Sleep Well. Live Well.
