Stop the Snore: Dental Solutions for Healthy Sleep, the new, highly anticipated book by holistic dentist Dr. Gene Sambataro, was released on September 26, 2017.
Sleep apnea is the most severe type of sleep-disordered breathing condition and is a chronic health problem in the United States that is reaching epidemic proportions. It affects as many as 22 million people and has been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, early dementia, and other acute health issues such as a stroke or heart attack. Disturbingly, the majority of sufferers are undiagnosed and untreated, and of those who have been diagnosed, many don’t follow their treatment plans.
Dr. Gene Sambataro is determined to change this. Stop The Snore: Dental Solutions for Healthy Sleep delves deep into the topic of sleep apnea, examining its long-term impact on health, its root causes, and, most importantly, how it can be treated using cutting-edge dental care technology and techniques, as well as holistic healing strategies, without the need for a CPAP machine. Stop The Snore was written to explore the urgent attention that needs paid to sleep-disordered breathing and enlighten the various treatments that oral physicians can offer to those suffering from disorders like sleep apnea. It’s important that patients are educated about the realities of sleep apnea, and they need to understand that an oral physician is the only health care professional truly qualified to address their needs and should be their primary contact for sleep-disordered breathing.
Not limited to sleep apnea, Stop The Snore explains the wide array of root causes of sleep-disordered breathing, such as poor neuromuscular stimulation, poor jaw development, crowded teeth, improper swallowing reflex, retruded tongue posture, clenching and/or grinding of teeth, and a multitude of other dental issues that result in a lifetime of chronic dental problems. These conditions affect patients’ lives in real and dangerous ways.
If you’re someone who’s been told you snore loudly, or if you’re dealing with the effects of sleep disruptions, then this book is for you. If you’re a parent whose young child or teen is dealing with ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, challenges in school, autism, bed-wetting, social issues, or other childhood disabilities that could be related to a sleeping disorder, then this book is for you. If your spouse is snoring and you can no longer get the sleep you need, then it’s time to make a call.
