Roseville, CA California Dentist, Dr. Thuy Nga Le Vu and staff were recently trained in identifying, diagnosing (with physicians) and offering treatment for patients with the deadly disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Trained by Sleep Group Solutions, Galleria Smile Designs, and all three of their locations, will bring their turnkey protocol to three different health fairs to spread the awareness of sleep apnea and ways to treat it. Galleria Smile Design will also provide Sleep Apnea screening and treatment in-office, by appointment.
Upcoming health fairs are open to employees and some public members, at the California Correctional Health Care Service on August 26, The Department of State Hospitals Health and Wellness on September 8th, and the UPS Health and Safety BBQ on September 11th. Dr. Vu and staff are looking forward to raising awareness, as well as offering a solution. “We are honored to help spread awareness that this treatment can save lives, not only for themselves but others around them that may be affected.” says Dr. Vu. “It affects everyone around us, even when sharing the same road with someone falling asleep at the wheel due to OSA, they may not even be aware of it.” Dr. Vu’s staff will do an initial patient screener with the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and schedule appointments for any sleep apnea red flags.
“We find an enormous amount of patients and employees who suffer with high blood pressure, obesity, gerd, and scalloped tongue. These are all implications that OSA may be present.” says Dr. Vu. Snoring, along with many of the symptoms Dr. Vu’s practice is suffering with are commonly connected with OSA. “Many of my patients are currently on CPAP, but are non compliant, so we are happy to offer a solution.” Oral Appliance Therapy is an effective way to treat mild to moderate OSA, and are saving lives with non compliant CPAP users.
For patients who suffer with snoring, high blood pressure, daytime fatigue, morning headaches, and even Type 2 Diabetes, relief may come from Oral Appliance Therapy. Sacramento area patients can reach Dr. Vu’s friendly and knowledgable staff at 916-787-1232 or online at Galleria Smile Designs.
