Obstructive Sleep Apnea


Posted by Dr. Gary Klein on 14 May 2013

Did you know that 20% of adults have obstructive sleep apnea?  That makes sleep apnea a more prevalent disease than both diabetes and asthma. And your risk of a myocardial infarction is more likely due to sleep apnea than smoking.

Dr. Klein recently went to a dental sleep course given in Harrisburg and he is now trained in making the Somno-Med appliance to help with mild-moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea.

Here is a brochure on these appliances: Patient Brochure
