Improving Health: Doylestown Dentist Offers a Better Night’s Sleep
New American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine Diplomate, Dr. Beth Snyder, Treats Sleep Apnea, Snoring
By: Beth Snyder, DMD pc
“Sleeping with a CPAP machine, which includes a face mask, tubing and a constantly running motor, can be difficult, and many Doylestown residents are unaware that an effective – and comfortable – alternative treatment is available,” said Dr. Snyder. “I’m committed to using my knowledge of dental sleep medicine to help treat my patient’s snoring and sleep apnea, and provide Doylestown residents with a better night’s rest.”
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. In contrast to a CPAP machine, oral appliances are a mouth guard-like device worn only during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is comfortable, easy to wear, quiet, portable and easy to care for.
“Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option that offers a higher rate of patient compliance than CPAP,” said Dr. Snyder. “I work with my patients, and their sleep physicians, to identify the right oral appliance device, custom fit devices to each patient and make any needed adjustments to ensure an open airway and a more restful sleep.”
Dr. Snyder is located at 252 W Swamp Rd, Suite #25 in Doylestown, PA. Patients with loud snoring and diagnosed sleep apnea sufferers with difficulty tolerating CPAP should contact Dr. Snyder at 215-348-9922 to schedule a consultation appointment. Dr. Snyder works closely with sleep physicians to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
