Improving Health: Dentist Offers a Better Night’s Sleep
American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine Diplomate, Dr. Laura Feller, Treats Sleep Apnea, Snoring
Dr. Laura Feller is helping Downingtown and Phoenixville residents get a more restful night’s sleep. Dr. Feller of Reardon Dental is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM), the leading national organization for dentists who treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. Few dentists have earned the distinction of Diplomate status from the ABDSM.
While CPAP is the standard treatment for sleep apnea, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine estimates up to 50 percent of sleep apnea patients do not comply with or tolerate CPAP, which includes a face mask, tubing and a constantly running motor. In contrast to a CPAP machine, oral appliances are a mouth guard-like device worn during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is comfortable, quiet, easy to care for and portable.
Dr. Feller works with patients and their sleep physicians to identify and custom fit the right oral appliance device to each patient and make any needed changes to ensure open airway and a more restful night sleep. Patients with loud snoring and diagnosed sleep apnea sufferers with difficulty tolerating CPAP should contact Dr. Feller at 855-356-7732 to schedule a consultation.
