"I've been held hostage nightly by a CPAP machine."

 

 

Dear American Sleep Association:

I recently purchased your snoring control appliance and it has made a profound change in my life. For the last 5 years I've been held hostage nightly by a CPAP machine. The mouth appliance that you provided to me with lower jaw extension has allowed me to retire my CPAP machine and sleep better than ever before. Medically, I have been diagnosed with "mild to moderate" sleep apnea and have tried just about all the other options to CPAP therapy there are. Nothing has worked until now!


Best Regards,
Vorris Justesen,

Normal Breathing


When you breathe while you sleep, air enters your mouth and nose and freely passes through the back of your throat to your lungs.

 

 

Cause of Sleep Apnea / Snoring

 

When you sleep, the muscles in the back of your mouth, tongue, and throat relax. If they relax too much, your jaw and tongue collapse and block your airway thus restricting the flow of oxygen to your lungs, heart and brain. As you breathe the muscles and uvula vibrate and knock against the back of your throat. This causes the sounds you hear during snoring.

 

 

To resume breathing, the person must awaken (although one rarely remembers the awakening) and create tension in the tongue and throat tissue. This process opens the airway and causes a distinctive snorting sound. Within a short period of time this process often repeats itself. A person may wake up several hundred times during an 8-hour sleep time. Consequently, this can cause chronic fatigue and other major health problems.

 

The Solution

 

 

To eliminate or reduce sleep apnea and snoring, American Sleep Association's dentists construct an FDA cleared oral appliance for sleep apnea and snoring. You wear this oral appliance while sleeping. The oral appliance repositions your lower jaw forward and does not allow your jaw to collapse and block your air passage while you sleep. By maintaining the air passage clear while you sleep, American Sleep Association oral appliance eliminates or reduces your sleep apnea and snoring.

 

 


4 Steps to Fabricating your
Oral Appliance


American Sleep Association dentists will construct you an oral appliance that is FDA cleared to eliminate or reduce sleep apnea and snoring.

To open the air passage way and to eliminate or reduce sleep apnea and snoring:

ASA sends you an impression kit.

With the impression kit you take an
impression of your upper
and lower teeth.
These impressions are then mailed back
to our dentists where Americans Sleep Association's dental lab construct an oral appliance.
Upon receiving your oral appliance you wear this oral appliance while you sleep. This eliminates or reduces sleep apnea or snoring by bringing you bottom jaw forward clearing your air passage.

 


FDA Cleared to Eliminate or Reduce Sleep Apnea and Snoring

 

For American Sleep Association to get their oral appliance FDA cleared, American Sleep Association's oral appliance had to:


  • Provide extensive studies and clinical trials that demonstrated that our oral appliance eliminates sleep apnea and snoring. The FDA verified and cleared American Sleep Association's oral appliance for sleep apnea and snoring.
  • Provide and follow extensive quality control procedures that demonstrates that our oral appliance is made according to strict procedures and is made of the highest quality.
  • Provide lab tests that demonstrates that all materials used in the oral appliance is safe for the patient.
  • Provide an extensive risk analysis that demonstrates that our oral appliances are extremely safe for the patient.
  • Plus other extensive measures.

The 3 most common treatments to treat
snoring and sleep apnea are:

CPAP Machines


CPAP machines force air down your air passage way via a tube and a mask. CPAP Machines are loud, uncomfortable to wear, expensive and hard to sleep with.

 


SURGERY

 

Another option is surgery. Surgery will cut off excess tissue and muscles that obstruct the air passage way. Surgery should be done as the last step, it is expensive, and irreversible.

 


 

Oral Appliances

 

The best alternative for controlling snoring and sleep apnea is the oral appliance (mouthpiece). Snoring & Sleep Apnea oral appliances are small oral appliances worn in the mouth. Oral appliances comfortably reposition the lower jaw forward while you sleep thus opening the airway by moving the tongue forward and tightening the muscle in the back of the throat. Opening the air passage way and tightening muscles in the throat eliminates the vibrating of muscles and tissues that cause snoring and sleep apnea.

What They Say

 

 

Sleep Apnea

 

Snoring may be more than just an annoying habit – it may be a sign of sleep apnea. Persons with sleep apnea characteristically make periodic gasping or "snorting" noises, during which their sleep is momentarily interrupted. Those with sleep apnea may also experience excessive daytime sleepiness, as their sleep is commonly interrupted and may not feel restorative. Treatment of sleep apnea is dependent on its cause.

 

If other medical problems are present, such as congestive heart failure or nasal obstruction, sleep apnea may resolve with treatment of these conditions. Gentle air pressure administered during sleep (typically in the form of a nasal continuous positive airway pressure device) may also be effective in the treatment of sleep apnea. As interruption of regular breathing or obstruction of the airway of the individual during sleep can pose serious complications for the health of the individual, symptoms of sleep apnea should be taken seriously.


Lack Of Sleep And Attention Deficit Disorder Add Symptoms Seen In Patients With Sleep Apnea

 

WPXI-PITTSBURGH -- Can trouble sleeping affect an asthmatic's condition? Can it cause someone to develop the symptoms of attention deficit disorder?

 

New research says both are true.

 

Researchers at the big lung and critical care medicine meeting say that lack of sleep can play a role in both the day and night symptoms of asthma, and that sleep problems ranging from simple insomnia to sleep apnea can cause someone to have attention deficit disorder. "You seem short of breath and it gets worse and worse and then suddenly you can't breathe. It's like somebody strangling you." Mary Kane has asthma.

 

But her problems may not be limited to just breathing.

 

New research presented at the American College of Chest Physician's Annual Meeting shows asthmatics on the whole suffer significant sleep quality disturbances, and in turn, end up being sleepy during the daytime.

 

"So we have 487 patients, which I believe makes it the, of not one of the largest trials to look at sleep and asthma. And we found that their sleep is pretty bad. A full 30 percent of them categorize their sleep as poor or bad," says Dr. John Mastronarde, study researcher at Ohio State University.

 

50 percent of the patients studied reported waking up every night more than three times a week. The sleep disturbances translated into daytime sleepiness.

 

"We know from previous data in the literature that that has a significant consequences for public health, folks who are sleepy in the day have a high risk for car accidents, poor performance at work, etc," Mastronarde states.

There is also a chicken-egg scenario, in that the researchers found that not only does asthma create bad sleep, but that bad sleep in and of itself can worsen an asthmatic's breathing.

 

"We saw if your sleep is worse and then it gets better we saw that your overall quality of asthma got better as well," says Mastronarde.

 

Other research presented shows those with sleep apnea, a condition where a person stops breathing hundreds of times a night, can develop have a worsening of attention deficit disorder.

 

Of the patients studied with moderate to severe attention problems, 60 percent had their ADHD resolved after being placed on CPAP. The researchers believe that it doesn't just apply to sleep apnea, that any sleep problem can create ADHD-type symptoms.

 

Dr. Clifford Risk, the author of the study from the Marlboro Center for Sleep Disorders, says, "If they have ADHD the doctor should be asking them how their sleep is, do you snore or have sleep apnea and/or do you have insomnia at night?"

 

ADD symptoms were seen in patients with sleep apnea who had no prior history or evidence of ADD, meaning, the daytime sleepiness can actually cause add type symptoms.

 

 

Are Kids Snoring Their Way To ADHD? Researchers Conclude

 

Sleepiness And Sleep Apnea May Be Exhibited As Symptoms of ADHD.

 

CNN Headline News - CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- New research suggests children who snore face nearly double the risk of being inattentive and hyperactive, providing fresh evidence of an intriguing link between sleep problems and attention deficit disorders.

 

CNN Headline News recently reported on a study that new research suggests children who snore face nearly double the risk of being inattentive and hyperactive, providing fresh evidence of an intriguing link between sleep problems and attention deficit disorders.

 

Children's behavioral problems may be linked to their sleep habits, according to a new study. Children who snore often are nearly twice as likely as other children to have attention and hyperactivity problems, found a new study by the University of Michigan Health System. The results, published in the March issue of the journal Pediatrics, provide some of the most solid evidence ever of a link between sleep problems and behavior. The link is strongest in boys under 8. Snorers in this group were more than three times more likely than non-snorers to be.

 

The National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research estimates that 38,000 cardiovascular deaths, due to sleep apnea, occur each year in the US. Over the long term, serious sleep apnea conditions have been linked to a greater risk of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. However, sleep apnea was not well understood or recognized by the medical community until recently. And only a fraction of sufferers have been diagnosed and treated.

 

 

Can Snoring Kill?
Dental Surgeons Say They've Found Why Snoring Can Kill

 

Snoring Can Indicate Serious Upper Airway Disorders. Blocked Airways Increase Blood Pressure, Damaging Arteries and Leading To Stroke

 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Dental surgeons discover why snoring can kill: It can actually cause damage to the arteries.

Although considered harmless, snoring can actually indicate a serious medical condition called sleep apnea. Marked by irregular breathing, sleep apnea often causes sufferers to stop breathing completely for up to several seconds and has even been linked to stroke and heart disease in some patients.

 

"When persons with sleep apnea fall asleep, their tongue falls back into their throat, blocking their airway," Dr. Arthur Friedlander, an oral surgeon who worked on the study conducted at University of California's School of Dentistry, said in a statement.

 

"As they struggle for breath, their blood pressure soars...This rise in blood pressure damages the inner walls of the carotid arteries lining the sides of the neck," he added. "Cholesterol and calcium stick to the injury sites and amass into calcified plaques, which block blood flow to the brain. The result is often a massive stroke."

 

According to Dr. Friedlander, these deposits of calcium deposits are merely the tip of the iceberg. "The X-ray can't show the true size of the plaque, which is also made up of fat, platelets, and other soft tissue." When a person is suffering from sleep apnea, air cannot flow in or out of the nose or mouth. Oxygen is not taken in so carbon dioxide builds to dangerous levels in the blood.

"It's like pressing a pillow over someone's face, "Friedlander said.

 

 

Lack of Sleep Linked To Weight Problems

American Diabetes Association Clinical Trials Suggest Lack of Sleep Linked To Overweight and Obesity

 

In addition to the known health problems caused by lack of sleep, research suggests that too little sleep causes hormone changes that might lead to obesity. 924 people, 18 to 91 years of age were divided into four groups: normal weight, overweight, obese, and extremely obese. The researchers compared body mass to total sleep time and concluded that the less people slept, the heavier they tended to be (except in the extremely obese group).

In addition to diet and exercise, quantity of sleep may be a key part of any weight-loss program. Overweight people are encouraged to examine their sleep quantity to improve weight-loss progress and results.
