Treatment for Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) afflicts over 40 million Americans. Untreated, OSA can lead to heart problems, strokes and excessive daytime sleepiness. More people are killed by sleepy drivers than by drunken drivers.
At least 80 million Americans snore (a sign of restricted airflow and impeded breathing during sleep). which can result in excessive daytime sleepiness, cause a higher rate of headaches, adversely affect the sleep quality of the snorer’s bed partner, and diminish the overall quality of life.
Treatment of OSA & Snoring
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) now recommends oral appliances like the Myerson EMA® appliance as a front line of treatment for snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea, and in cases where CPAP has not been tolerated. The FDA has approved the Myerson EMA® appliance for the treatment of both obstructive sleep apnea & snoring.
