Terry Lowitz, DDS Joins Snoring Isn't Sexy, LLC: Dr. Lowitz, Who Treats Snoring and Sleep Apnea Patients With Oral Appliance Therapy in his Cincinnati, OH Dental Office, Emphasizes The Need for Physicians and Dentists to Work Together for The Health of Their Mutual Patients
CINCINNATI, OH, January 19, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In these stressful times, a good night's sleep has become especially valuable, and increasingly difficult to get. Snoring and sleep apnea (a medical problem where the airway collapses during sleep) rob people and their bed partners of the rest they need to face their daily challenges.

45% of the population snores and 20 million people in the United States alone have sleep apnea. Of these, only 10% have been diagnosed and treated; and of those treated, some cannot tolerate their prescribed medical device known as CPAP (continuous positive air pressure supplied through a nasal mask) - which supports the airway during sleep.

Snoring Isn't Sexy, LLC was formed to alert the public to the medical dangers and social hazards of snoring and sleep apnea, and to introduce an alternative treatment that can be provided by specially educated dentists for patients who cannot wear their CPAP units and those who may prefer an oral appliance.

Small, comfortable, dental mouthpieces that hold the lower jaw in a forward position have been proven to support the airway to prevent collapse, and have been approved as a primary treatment for mild to moderate sleep apnea - and, as an alternative to, or in conjunction with CPAP when needed.

Dr. Terry Lowitz of Cincinnati, Ohio is now affiliated with Snoring Isn't Sexy. Dr. Lowitz, is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Ohio Sleep Society, Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Cincinnati Dental Association, and received his D.D.S. from Ohio State University.

In 2008, Dr. Lowitz registered over 50 hours in continuing education for sleep medicine. "It's very rewarding to see how much better my patients feel after treatment...and their spouses are much happier, now that they too are sleeping better," says Dr. Lowitz.
