Dr. Eckstein, the founder of E-Dental in Seminole, Florida, has been certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep and Breathing.
SEMINOLE, FLORIDA, USA, June 12, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ -- Dr. Eckstein has officially become a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep and Breathing (ABSB). This board certification designates his as one of the few Seminole, Florida, dental services to show exceptional skill and knowledge in the provision of oral appliance therapy for sleep and breathing disorders.
“Over 22 million Americans suffer from a lack of sleep, many due to sleep apnea and related conditions,” explained Dr. Eckstein. “That puts them at risk for heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and even sudden death. My focus on sleep medicine allows us to treat these conditions and improve our patients’ health, often dramatically.”
About Sleep Disordered Breathing
Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing affects over 22 million Americans. This is something of a catch-all term that includes many different disorders, including:
Obstructive sleep apnea
Central sleep apnea
Sleep related bruxism (clenching and grinding)
It can be marked by snoring, as well as cessations in breathing while sleeping. It can also lead to restless sleep, mouth breathing, and the hallmark apneas. Other symptoms can include:
If left untreated, sleep-disordered breathing can lead to obesity, loss of concentration, impaired memory, dementia, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, and sudden death.
About the ABSB
The American Board of Sleep and Breathing is a collective of contributors drawn from three separate specialties: dentists, physicians, and sleep technicians. Each contributor provides their experience and expertise in evaluating dentists seeking recognition of their education and skill in sleep medicine and/or expertise in the provision of oral appliance therapy for sleep and breathing disorders.
All diploma candidates must meet stringent guidelines, including state licensure, proof of at least 50 hours of continuing education within the dental sleep medicine space in the previous two years, attendance of the Diplomate Review, successful completion of a 100-question written exam, and an oral exam.
