Herald Square Dental is now offering relief from Obstructive Sleep Apnea with the help of Somnodent Sleep Apnea Appliance. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common disorder that can become very serious, increasing chances of high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes and stroke.

Some of the symptoms of OSA include:

  • Feeling tired during the day
  • Falling asleep during the day
  • Morning headaches
  • Choking or gasping during sleep
  • Memory or learning problems
  • Feeling irritable
  • Dry throat upon waking
  • Snoring and keeping loved ones awake at night.

Those who have any of these symptoms may have Sleep Apnea. A person that snores loudly, has high blood pressure and is overweight may be suffering these conditions as a result of an obstruction in their airway. These obstructions may decrease the size of the airway passage, nostrils and throat, which in turn disposes them to a condition known as Sleep Apnea. Anyone is at risk. Untreated sleep apnea can increase the chance of high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes and even stroke.

OSA is a common disorder that has the potential to become very serious, since it affects the breathing pattern while sleeping. It could either make breathing become very shallow and intermittent, or completely cease for a prolonged period (10-20 seconds or even more). OSA affects an estimated 12 million Americans - approximately 1 out of 25 middle-aged men and 1 out of 50 middle-aged women have sleep apnea, and some of them don’t even suspect it.

The Somnodent Sleep Apnea Device is an oral appliance worn during sleep. It can only be made by a dentist, and Dr. Shirzadnia is Herald Square Dental's specially trained Somnodent certified expert. Dr. Shirzadnia has helped dozens of patients resume healthy sleep patterns with the Somnomed appliance. It is a discrete, custom made piece, comprised of upper and lower dental plates with a unique "patented fin coupling component" which allows normal mouth opening and closing. It also allows patients to close their lips and may be used alone or along with CPAP machine. It is safe, effective and very comfortable.
