FAIRFIELD, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- For over 20 years, New Jersey cosmetic dentist Jerry Strauss, DMD has educated his patients on how lack of sleep can negatively influence their health. His practice, Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey, provides a number of treatments for patients with sleep apnea and snoring problems to help improve their quality of sleep.
Recently, Dr. Strauss published two blog articles sharing the findings of several sleep studies. The New Jersey dentist mentions the possible link between strokes and insomnia in a blog post titled, "Did You Know Insomnia May Increase Your Risk for Stroke?" Based on evidence of an outside study, he explains that insomniacs are eight times more likely to experience a stroke over the course of four years, and they are 54 percent more likely to be hospitalized after the event.
Another blog post titled, "Sleep Apnea May Increase Your Chances of Getting Pneumonia," recounts how 10 percent of sleep apnea patients caught pneumonia over the course of a decade-long study in comparison to 7 percent of patients who did not have sleep apnea or any other health disorder. Dr. Strauss notes the study revealed patients with sleep apnea are also more likely to contract pneumonia in the future.
Dr. Strauss advises patients to seek immediate medical treatment if they are suffering from a sleep disorder. A qualified medical professional will be able to evaluate their condition and offer solutions that may decrease their chances of developing serious health problems in the future. Overall, Dr. Strauss remains committed to increasing patient awareness about sleep disorders and helping patients finally experience a good night's rest with his sleep dentistry treatments.
