Snoring and Sleep Apnea, a Public Health Crisis for 20 Million Americans

Approximately 20 million undiagnosed people in the United States suffer from chronic snoring and sleep apnea. Both snoring and sleep apnea can have fatal outcomes. Signs and common sleep apnea symptoms include coronary artery disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, and depression. Side effects such as daytime drowsiness and dozing off can also be deadly for machinery operators, pilots, passengers, and others.

Dr. Binder has recognized the enormity of this public health crisis for over 20 years.  He is at the forefront of sleep apnea treatment and diagnosis.

Dr. Binder says, “It’s a privilege to offer Oral Appliance Therapy to patients who previously suffered from these not-so-silent afflictions. The appreciation shown by those patients whose lives have been dramatically improved by Oral Appliance Therapy is quite gratifying.”

Dr. Binder brings awareness to the public about dentistry’s role in recognizing and treating snoring and Sleep Apnea. To help more people who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), Dr. Binder lectures on Snoring and Sleep Apnea. He has also expanded his practice to include Dental Sleep Apnea New York, a snoring and obstructive sleep apnea treatment center located in mid-Manhattan, New York.

Dental Sleep Apnea New York provides advanced diagnosis and treatment focused on OSA and the latest oral appliance therapy (OAT) technologies. Dr. Binder is a Platinum Partner of SomnoMed and one of the few dentists in the United States using SomnoMed MATRx™. This new technology enables a sleep laboratory to predict a patient’s jaw position that obstructs breathing during sleep and is the cause of Obstructed Sleep Apnea, the most common cause of sleep apnea.

SomnoDent is an oral appliance worn during sleep. The device is comfortable and discrete, allowing patients to close their lips. SomnoDent can be used by patients with teeth or denture wearers who miss upper and lower teeth.

Dr. Binder’s website addresses snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, related sleeping disorders, and oral appliance therapy.

Dr. Binder is well qualified, with over 25 years of practicing general dentistry and teaching 23 of them. Dr. Binder’s sleep center affiliations include Mount Sinai Medical Center, the Department of Sleep Disorders, and NYU Bellevue Sleep Disorders Centers. Dr. Binder taught dentists oral appliance therapy at New York University College of Dentistry. Dr. Binder, “The Manhattan Dentist,” received the Humanitarian Award from the New York Academy of Dentistry, for improving the lives of New Yorkers and for his work in helping to identify victims of the 9/11 attacks.
