Imagine yourself asleep…

then being choked for ten seconds or more...

between five and thirty times per hour...

and the picture becomes quite clear.

And Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) affects not only adults, but children and teens, too.

Serious medical problems caused by or associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing include:

High Blood Pressure

Stroke

Heart Attack

Type II Diabetes

Kidney Disease

Excessive Daytime Sleepiness

Teeth Grinding

Head and Neck Pain

a host of additional health, relationship, occupational and social complications

Did you know that properly trained dentists treat snoring and sleep apnea?

Treatment choices for Sleep Disordered Breathing include positive airway pressure (CPAP and BiPAP) and, for those who can’t tolerate these methods, oral appliances. That’s right – properly fitted custom dental appliances, made by dentists with specific training in Dental Sleep Medicine, can gently, comfortably and precisely position your jaw to alleviate snoring and mild-to-moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Lancaster Snoring and Sleep Center was established to assist in identifying those who suffer from Sleep Disordered Breathing and, in concert with sleep physicians, assist them in finding the best customized treatment plans.

Dr. Patterson is an active member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and exceeds the Academy’s qualification requirements.

If you or your bed partner snore - or if your bed partner tells you that you snore, or if you feel tired much of the time, a few simple questions and an easy exam can assess your risk for SDB.
