Washington D.C. Dentists Now Offering Dental Oral Appliances to Treat Sleep Apnea

Washington Center for Dentistry is now offering oral appliances to Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia sleep apnea sufferers.

2012-10-20
WASHINGTON, DC, October 20, 2012 (Press-News.org) Sleep apnea isn't just about the snoring, it is one of the most common sleep disorders in the United States and is also often undiagnosed. Washington Center for Dentistry is proud to announce they have expanded their practice areas to include sleep apnea treatment for their Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia patients.

Sleep apnea is caused when breathing is interrupted during sleep- sometimes hundreds of times. People suffering from sleep apnea get restricted amounts of oxygen to the brain and the body. Sleep apnea sufferers often stay in a lighter sleep pattern, rather than the deep restorative sleep they need to stay energetic and productive day to day.

"People often endure sleep apnea symptoms for a long time before realizing there is an easy solution," said Washington D.C dentist, Dr. Michael G. Katsaros. "We are excited to offer a treatment that will potentially change the quality of our patient's lives."

Over time, sleep apnea can lead to other health complications, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and weight gain. Washington Center for Dentistry is excited to announce they will be offering Somnodent, to treat their sleep apnea patients. The dental device, which resembles a mouth guard, is known to have better compliance than CPAP systems and can be easily hidden inside the mouth while sleeping, permitting lips to close.

Washington Center for Dentistry is a state-of the-art dentistry practice, serving patients in and around Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. They offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry treatments.

2012-10-20

Town Ordinances Can Be Problematic for Texas' Registered Offenders

2012-10-20
It has become increasingly common for towns across Texas to establish ordinances that greatly restrict the movement of registered sex offenders. The ordinances often force offenders out of towns entirely due to lack of housing far enough away from public areas where children are present. These ordinances go beyond Texas sex offender laws and can greatly impede on the rights of sex offenders to find adequate housing.

Medical Debt Responsible for Increasing Share of Texas Bankruptcies

2012-10-20
It is a sad and unfortunate truth that medical expenses have skyrocketed over the last several years. The fact that so many people have lost their jobs -- and thus their health insurance -- during the recession has only made matters worse. Of course, a serious illness or injury can be financial devastating, even for people who have insurance. Between copays, deductibles and benefit caps, it does not take long for the bills to spiral out of control. Indeed, medical debt is now one of the leading causes of consumer bankruptcy, both in Texas and throughout the United States. According ...

Serious Car Accidents More Likely During Holidays and the Summer

2012-10-20
To a certain extent, the risk of encountering a dangerous or deadly traffic accident is always present. No matter what day it is, some drivers will make the choice to get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol, taking drugs or not getting enough sleep. Others will take their eyes off the road to send a text, program their GPS or play with the stereo. Add in speeders, red light-runners and a whole host of other dangerous but common behaviors, and it begins to become clear why 1,200 people were killed and another 12,800 were seriously injured in New York motor vehicle accidents ...
