No wonder serious dental sleep medicine is having a problem

An article just came across the wires this AM at a site called articlesbase.com. The site is, of course, the kind of trash that Google is trying to get rid of with its new algorithm but its potentially dangerous to those who practice dental sleep medicine seriously. The article is designed to garner ad links without any regard for the validity of content.

The title of the article is "How Cosmetic Dentists Can Help You to Get a Good Night's Sleep...Literally." The article goes to to describe three methods of how a cosmetic dentist can help:(1) CPAP (2) Pillar procedure (3) Surgical excision. While a dentist can perform the Pillar procedure and an oral surgeon can excise excessive tissue - CPAP is outside dental licensure. There are also few, if any, cosmetic dentists who will undertake surgery on the soft palate or pharyngeal area.

The article is bogus but potential patients are able to read this.

The article goes on to state:

However, not every kind of treatment can be good for every patient. If your neighbor underwent surgery, for instance, you may be better off getting a CPAP machine. Make it a point to consult with your cosmetic dentist about suitable options before you go ahead with any kind of treatment.

Finally, choose the cosmetic dentist carefully and only after extensive research. Check out the reputation he (or she) has online prior discovering their attitude towards you during you initial in office examination. Additionally, make it a point to discuss the expenses before you decide to go ahead with the treatment. Procedures in cosmetic dentistry can be expensive, but will never burn a hole in your wallet. If a particular treatment package seems to be a little too expensive, ask for alternative options.

You are in luck if you live in or around Carrollton, TX. Cosmetic dentists here are some of the best in the entire state of Texas. Schedule an appointment with one of the reputable dentists in your area and those sleepless nights will soon be a thing of the past.

We've all got to become aware of what's going on in order to protect our patients and the field of dental sleep medicine.
