Lititz, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2015 -- American Sleep Association (ASA) has expanded its sleep apnea and snoring treatment access internationally. Since restructuring its distribution model, ASA has experienced international demand for sleep apnea and snoring treatment options.
Through affiliate relationships, ASA offers access to sleep apnea mouthpieces and mouth guards and snoring snore guards, and stop snoring mouthpieces. Recently ASA also began to offer CPAP, CPAP supplies.
Sleep apnea oral appliances are dental devices made of a plastic-like material that resembles a mouth guard. It brings the mandible, or lower jaw, forward. This opens the airway, reducing snoring and pauses in breathing.
About half of the adult population snores. Five to ten percent of adults are believed to have obstructive sleep apnea – a serious, and potentially deadly sleep disorder which affects breathing during sleep.
Snoring and sleep apnea are associated with shrinking of the upper airway during sleep. The decreasing diameter yields increased airway resistance and airway turbulence.
Weight, age, gender, alcohol use, body position, and neck circumference are known factors that can influence snoring and sleep apnea.
For snoring, there are many dental and oral options available. Stop Snoring snore guards, and antisnoring mouthpieces work by moving the jaw forward, which opens the back of the oral airway, which reduces snoring.
