Millennium Smiles explains that, while obstructive sleep apnea is relatively common, many cases continue to go undiagnosed, leading to long-term health concerns. The clinic’s most recent update is designed to increase diagnosis rates as well as offering more comfortable and effective treatments.
The National Sleep Foundation reports that between 10% and 30% of the adult population may suffer from OSA, which translates to as many as 75 million individuals. According to the University of Utah, up to 80% of cases go undiagnosed, representing a significant public health concern.
Millennium Smiles’ enhanced services are designed to help prevent some of the longer-term health impacts, which can include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and mental health problems. The clinic suggests that people should seek advice if they suffer from one or more symptoms of OSA, such as loud snoring, frequent awakenings, excessive daytime sleepiness, or trouble concentrating.
“Because it occurs during sleep, many people are often unaware that they are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea,” a clinic representative explained. “Our latest oral appliances work in different ways to help relieve sleep apnea symptoms, such as by holding your tongue forward or by repositioning the lower jaw.”
About Millennium Smiles
In addition to OSA, Millennium Smiles offers specialist diagnosis and therapy for temporomandibular joint disorders, which are often associated with nighttime breathing problems. The practice now offers appointments at two offices, located on Main Road and Lebanon Road.
“I’ve never really been a fan of visiting the dentist, but the staff at Millennium Smiles were so accommodating, considerate, and very sweet,” one patient recently stated. “I walked in very hesitant and came out absolutely loving the work they did on my teeth. Thank you Millennium Smiles for putting a smile on my face.”
