ANY WONDER WHY DENTAL SLEEP MEDICINE IS NOT GAINING TRACTION WITH MDs?

This was published in the Science section of the New York Times on May 2, 2011.

To the Editor:

I am correctly cited in Ms. Brody’s article stating that I would not get routine dental X-rays, as there is little evidence to support them in asymptomatic patients. The situation for mammography is completely different. Randomized clinical studies have shown mammography saves lives. It is unlikely to impact thyroid cancer, and the benefits of mammography clearly outweigh any risks. So, the message is clear: Get your mammogram and skip the “routine” dental X-ray if you do not have symptoms.

I contend we have a real problem here. Any comments?

Stop Snoring tips can be a lot to handle, but I've found exercise to be the biggest help.
