Mergen Orthodontics has published a new article entitled, "Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) - Silently Smothering Our Children" which explores how obstructive apnea occurs and why a properly trained orthodontist can ensure early treatment. Folks looking for life-changing treatment for their child and other interested individuals can view the full article at MergenOrthodontics/Blog.
Mergen Orthodontics has released a fascinating report that includes everything a parent needs to know about Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Furthermore, it provides a complete guide that includes historical facts, scientific explanations, and shocking numbers on how this silent disease affects more than 12% of children as early as age 2. This information should be of particular interest to those who care about their children's health because thousands of therapies have been used to treat this condition, from medications (steroids, antibiotics, decongestants), surgical removal of adenoids and tonsils, CPAP machines, and mouth appliances. Still, none of them have been successful.
Additionally, Mergen Orthodontics excels in explaining how Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
"When someone is sleeping and has a narrow nasal airway, they cannot breathe through their nose; the tongue relaxes and falls back into the airway more. They start to suffocate or stop breathing. When this happens, their bodies wake up and gasp for air by pushing their tongue forward. This process is known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea."
In discussing the article's creation, Dr. John Mergen, Founder/ CEO at Mergen Orthodontics, said:
"A properly trained and experienced orthodontist can provide early orthodontic care to promote jaw growth, increasing normal airway and breathing function. This treatment also helps to make more room for permanent teeth and a better bite in the future. This also positively influences proper facial development during this rapid growth stage."
Regular readers of Mergen Orthodontics will notice the article takes a familiar tone, described as 'committed and professional.'
Mergen Orthodontics now welcomes comments and questions from readers concerning the article. They intend to provide relevant and valuable information to their patients and audience. The reason is that they want to help the audience be better informed about Obstructive Sleep Apnea and how proper treatment at an early age can change childrens lives.
