Fairfield, CT (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
Fairfield CT Dentist, Dr. Salvatore Pizzino, recently attended the Connecticut State Dental Association’s 149th Annual Charter Oak Dental Meeting. The CSDA Annual Meeting encourages professional growth and for dental professionals to come together for continuing education and networking. The conference highlighted the latest technologies and treatments for sleep apnea disorder.
Dr. Salvatore Pizzino, Fairfield CT dental practitioner, explains sleep apnea as “a sleep disorder that occurs when one’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. Those affected by sleep apnea may stop breathing many times during their sleep. This means that the body and brain may not get enough oxygen”. Research shows many people suffer from sleep apnea and may be unaware that they have it.
For years Dr. Pizzino has worked to help those experiencing this condition. He aims to bring awareness to those who suffer from this disorder and inform patients that Southport Family Dental can help treat sleep apnea.
To further this initiative, Fairfield CT Dentist Dr. Pizzino will begin offering at-home sleep studies to better understand a patient’s problems while sleeping. The home sleep testing program has opened the door for increased diagnosis resulting in more patients receiving the proper medical care they need. Treatments for couples with disrupted sleep cycles due to sleep apnea is very important to Dr. Pizzino. “Helping individuals and couples get a better night’s sleep is extremely important to me,” says Dr. Pizzino. "With a better night's sleep my patients are more refreshed and able to live happier lives."
To continue helping patients and make treatment more affordable, Southport Family Dental understands the medical insurance coverage needed for these procedures. “With the combination of the latest technology and insurance coverage making these procedures more accessible, more and more people will be able to get help for their sleep apnea condition,” Dr. Pizzino said. With better prices, and more awareness of this condition, patients can now get more help than before.
