On Friday March 17th between 9-4pm we are inviting our existing patients and the public to come and learn about the sleep disorder, Sleep Apnea, that is affecting millions of Americans, but far too often goes undiagnosed. Those who suffer from sleep apnea can stop breathing up to 50 times a night in severe cases. Left untreated, this condition can result in serious chronic illnesses like, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Brochures will be available on the topic as well the latest innovations available to treat sleep apnea, that are available right in your dentist office, known as mandibular advancement devices. Similar to a mouth guard, it pulls the bottom jaw forward to ensure constant oxygen to the airway. We will be offering complimentary iSleep evaluations to patients that day. Anyone who completes the questionnaire will receive a gift. Light refreshments will be served. For further information, please call 212.246.8700.
