The statistics are frightening: *Approximately one in every six fatal crashes in the US involves a drowsy driver. *Ten percent of drivers surveyed by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety admitted to falling asleep while driving their vehicle during the past 12 months. *Drowsy drivers are involved in 1 in every 8 crashes in which somebody ends up in a hospital. *Sleepers with mild sleep apnea are twice as likely to crash their cars. Oral appliance therapy that we provide for Phoenix patients at our Glendale dental sleep medicine are the first line of treatment for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. In more severe cases oral appliances can be used with CPAP to provide a life-saving quality of sleep. If you snore, suffer from insomnia, sleep apnea, have hypertension, morning headaches, or daytime sleepiness, do yourself and your loved ones a favor and have a sleep test. It can be life saving. If you are the least bit sleepy, do not put yourself or others in danger. A designated, sober and well rested driver is something to consider this holiday season.
