Pennsylvania Dental Sleep Medicine Experts

The average person spends about one third of their life sleeping, normally receiving on average eight hours of sleep per night. Sleep is very important to physical well being and plays an important role in physical and mental health. The quality of sleep a person sustains on a regular basis is just as important as the quantity and also contributes to a person’s health and well-being.According to a 2002 National Sleep Foundation study, more than 100 million people in America fail to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis. Over 70% of American adults experience sleeping problems at least two to three nights per week, and more than 30% report lack of sleep interfering with their daily activities. In fact, the medical community has recognized that sleep disorders contribute to the development of various medical conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Fortunately, most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or controlled once properly diagnosed.
