Northport, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

In today’s world, a good night’s sleep has become especially valuable, and increasingly difficult to get. Snoring and sleep apnea (a medical problem where the airway collapses during sleep and breathing stops) robs people and their bed partners of the rest they need to face their daily challenges.

Up to 45% of the population snores and 20 million people in the United States alone have sleep apnea. Of these, only 10% have been diagnosed and treated; and of those treated, many cannot tolerate their prescribed medical device known as CPAP (continuous positive air pressure supplied through a nasal mask) – which supports the airway during sleep.

Small, comfortable, dental mouthpieces that hold the lower jaw in a forward position have been proven to support the airway to prevent collapse, and have been approved as a primary treatment in mild to moderate sleep apnea – and, as an alternative to, or in conjunction with CPAP when needed. This treatment is called oral appliance therapy (OAT).

Snoring Isn’t Sexy® was formed to alert the public of the medical dangers and social hazards of snoring and sleep apnea, and to connect snorers and sleep apnea sufferers with a specially trained dentist in their area who can provide oral appliance therapy.

Steve Lamberg DDS, a Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist in Northport, New York provides this treatment for snoring and sleep apnea patients. Dr. Steve Lamberg is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (A.B.D.S.M), has over 30 years of experience, and has continued his education throughout his career. He also invented the Lamberg SleepWell oral appliance, which is patented and received FDA clearance for treating sleep apnea.

Dr. Lamberg is a 1979 graduate of NYU Dental School and is a former Clinical Associate Professor at SUNY Stony Brook. He has served as the president of the New York Chapter of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and has been involved with the organization for over 10 years. He is also the founder of The Long Island Center for Dental Esthetics and Occlusion where he teaches other dentists in his office on a wide range of topics.

"I am fortunate to be in a profession where I can make such a positive impact on people’s lives. When a patient tells me that I helped save their marriage, helped save their life, or gave them the confidence to achieve new goals, I realize I am so privileged to be doing something so special," says Dr. Lamberg.
