Sleep apnea is a life-threatening condition and many patients who suffer from it do not enjoy restful and peaceful sleep. Dr. Michael Miyamoto, dentist and owner of the Miyamoto Dental Design Suite, has recently started a campaign to shed light to the public on how dangerous sleep apnea is and how patients can now enjoy their sleep using dental devices. Dr. Miyamoto’s office is located in Maui, Wailuku, HI. This dental device is worn orally and directly contributes towards a healthy life for sleep apnea patients.

Sleep apnea does not just make breathing difficult during sleep. It can also lead to obesity, heart attacks, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. Unfortunately, 80% of the 22 million Americans who have sleep apnea have not been diagnosed. A lot of people do not realize that dental appliances can successfully treat this disorder without any invasive procedures.
The majority of people in the island of Maui are not informed on sleep apnea, its causes and how it can be treated. Dr. Miyamoto considers this to be a major concern. “It is a huge mistake to say all you do is snore when you could have sleep apnea. Getting a medical diagnosis is critical.”
Contrary to popular belief, sleep apnea and snoring are not the same thing. Sleep apnea is a serious condition that includes both snoring and shallow breathing. A person suffering from sleep apnea wakes up several times during their sleep, up to 100 times a night on average. Snoring is a side-effect of sleep apnea and is caused by blockage of the upper airways. In most cases, people snore because they have heavy throat tissues that block their airways as they sleep causing the tissues to vibrate and make the common and frustrating snoring sound. Sleep apnea is treated based on what has caused it.
If the sleep apnea is as a result of an obstruction, then an oral device is the best method to treat it. This is effective, fast, compliant with other treatment methods, and also energy efficient as it does not use electricity. The device works by creating space in the upper airway and kills two birds with one stone because it also eliminates snoring. It is the best option for treating obstructive sleep apnea.
“The sleep apnea device is a great treatment method. Not only is it effective, it is comfortable too. I would encourage anyone with the sleeping disorder or anyone with a friend or family member with the disorder to get it from a certified doctor. After a sleep study has been conducted to confirm viability, they can start using the device.” said Dr. Miyamoto.
“Office is clean and high tech,” said Dean Y. “Everyone is knowledgable and caring. Dr. Mike is a true artist. Highly recommended!”
