POWAY, Calif. - Feb. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- Dr. William W. Thomas recently delivered a groundbreaking presentation to Kaiser Permanente on the growing issue of Sleep Breathing Disorders and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (“OSA”).  Orthodontic issues are ever changing and one particular issue of note is OSA, which is creating a new working relationship between orthodontists and physicians to care for a patient’s total health.


During his presentation, Dr. Thomas highlighted the fact that research shows that many OSA problems are rooted in the craniofacial morphologies of patients and many people can be treated successfully with oral appliances and orthodontics.  He also noted that about one in 10 children snore regularly and two to four percent have sleep apnea, according to the American Academy of Otolaryngology Health and Neck Surgery.


Dr. Thomas consistently conducts research about orthodontics and how it effects the overall health of patients.  The presentation was well received by the physicians in attendance. One attendee noted, “…we as physicians appreciate your work, willingness to share and this sort of information helps us to practice medicine better.” Another attendee added, “…Dr. Thomas’ lecture and research is very important, we appreciate his work.”
This presentation is among the many topics Dr. Thomas has researched for the benefit of his patients.  Dr. Thomas and his team of professionals at Poway Braces are knowledgeable professionals that serve a diverse clientele.  His cutting edge research and delivery of services to his patients are well received by the surrounding community.  To find out more about OSA and other orthodontic issues please contact Dr. Thomas directly.
