Oral Cancer Walk & Contest Results

The cold temperatures couldn’t freeze out our enthusiasm as we participated in the 4th Annual Oral Cancer Foundation Walk/Run for Awareness May 31. We send out a huge thank you to everyone who participated either by walking with us, or by donating to the cause.

Big congratulations go out to Maryna S., our patient who won our contest by correctly guesses that we had 51 oral cancer awareness bracelets in our jar. Maryna won the jar filled with  bracelets, and we hope she will share her winnings with her friends.

We will give you three tokens for every book you read. You can collect tokens all summer long and cash them in for fun gifts, such as movie passes and other great items.

OSA Sufferers May Breathe Easier Thanks to Orthodontic Treat

OSA Sufferers May Breathe Easier Thanks to Orthodontic Treat

Improper jaw growth and facial development during childhood have been identified as the root cause of obstructive sleep apnea, so it makes sense that medical providers are considering orthodontic cures for the condition.

Dr. Yan Razdolsky is working with the Sleep & Behavior Medicine Institute in Chicago by using orthodontic treatment to guide dento-skeletal development in a way that allows for proper airway function in children who have been diagnosed with OSA, a sleep disorder in which the person stops breathing for at least 10 seconds each hour during sleep.

He also is treating adolescents and adults who have the disorder.

Treating dental problems may eventually cure a child of a sleep disorder, according to the institute. Treating sleep disorders at an early age may also prevent the onset of some dental problems.

“We need to keep educating dental professionals on our ability to diagnose and treat sleep apnea,” Dr. Razdolsky says. “Patients tend to see their family dentist and orthodontist more frequently than their family doctor, so we are on the front line when it comes to being positioned to identify obstructive sleep apnea. This is important because OSA can cause many other health complications.”

 

Please visit our blog to learn more about how Dr. Razdolsky works in tandem with sleep specialists to address this serious condition.
