Local dentist Dr. Laurie Anne Stanell is helping Bucks County residents get a more restful night’s sleep.
Stanell of Buckingham Dentistry is a American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) member. AADSM is the leading national organization for dentists who treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy, an effective alternative treatment to the standard continue positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.
While CPAP is the standard treatment for sleep apnea, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine estimates up to 50 percent of sleep apnea patients do not comply with or tolerate CPAP. In contrast to a CPAP machine, oral appliances are a mouth guard-like device worn only during sleep to maintain an open, unobstructed airway. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is comfortable, easy to wear, quiet, portable, and easy to care for.
Stanell is located at 4950 York Road, Suite 2H, Holicong. Patients with loud snoring and diagnosed sleep apnea sufferers with difficulty tolerating CPAP should contact Stanell at 215-794-3898 to schedule a consultation appointment.
Stanell works closely with sleep physicians to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
