Effective Weapon Against Snoring

Scientific article by Prof. Dr. Dr. Edmund Clemens Rose obstructive sleep respiratory disorders in adults and children can be treated due to orthodontic measures in circumscribed indications. The displacement of the mandible by means of a Protrusionsschiene or the extension of extrathoracic airway by means of orthodontic therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep-related breathing disorders are becoming recognized procedures in sleep medicine and of pneumology. An extension of the treatment spectrum arises for the sleep-medically interested orthodontists. Obstructive sleep breathing disorders in children should be treated separately. There are special diagnostic criteria and therapeutic approaches.

Polygraphisch proven sleep breathing disturbances in children with Cranio facial anomalies, orthodontic measures can be displayed. The orthodontic treatment concept is to adjust the sequence of the underlying disease. The present two review articles include the current scientific As of this form of therapy concerning the effectiveness, patient cooperation, and the dental side effects together. Introduction to the international classification of sleep disorders (ICSD-2) of the American Academy of sleep medicine (AASM) lists three sleeping troubles for the orthodontist. (These are the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (II) in a) adults and b) children and sleep-related movement disorders (VI). The sleep bruxism is counted among the latter.

Unterkieferprotrusionsschienen have become as circumscribed indicated as a possible method of treatment of the obstructive Schlafapnoesyndroms (OSAS). Essentially, a movement of the mandible in the sleep prevents falling along the respiratory tract in the different phases of sleep, by is stretched the pharynx and so the airway resistance is reduced. Less turbulence occur at the inspiration, which reduces the frequency of snoring and snoring frequency; at the same time, the respiratory way obstructions are removed.


Psychological sleep tips for adult sleep has become a problem for many professionals. Many wake up at night and can not go back to sleep from sheer brooding thoughts. The Verhaltenstherpaie and the sleep psychology provide good tips for peaceful nights. Can sleep at night and for recovery ability the get – for many adults a pipe dream now. The job stress makes people no longer sleep. According to health insurance reports is: each r third wakes up at night and can no longer fall asleep.

For many, thoughts then revolve around the work. But there are tips and tricks that are sometimes quite simple and yet Act. However, they do require a little usage, in particular preparation. The following tips to turn off in the overview are chronologically and divided. Prepare the shutdown properly. Ask yourself in the Office: what have I done today? What am I proud? What’s important for tomorrow? What is my plan? It is best if Write down the answers to these questions. Everything you write down on a sheet, is out of the head and can not bother you after work.

Establish a sleep ritual, E.g. a regular cup of coffee when he comes home. Prepare the sleep properly. Go not just in bed, but also develop a ritualized order. For example, by regularly with the dog going down the fresh air (will do well also your thoughts), then in the kitchen and look in the children from the right hand, then drink a delicious Cup of tea or the classic hot milk with honey, and disappear in the bathroom and change – everything day always same order.

Recovery ability to train that is the only way to maintain mental health, very important and often (depending on the older we become, the more) If on the stress in the workplace (why always) nothing can change. Athletes know that: training stimuli make only stronger, if followed by a period of regeneration (relaxation) after a period of tension. The same is true for the ‘ normal service providers “. Only who really well at night can charge its battery is fit on the next day.

Graf Augmentation

Routine check-ups by means of magnetic resonance imaging after breast augmentation with silicone breast implants no longer recommended by the FDA. So far check-ups with magnetic resonance imaging were recommended by the American Ministry of health after breast augmentation with silicone gel implants (FDA) years after 3,5,7,9. End of August now again include this recommendation in the American Ministry of health were discussed. There was consensus that kernspintomografische no longer routinely checks patients with breast implants should be recommended after years of 3,5,7,9 now. After the implantation of silicone gel breast implants require regular follow-up of patients. Checkups of the breast are useful: on cancer screening (as in women without implants) to evaluate the implant changes such as such as ruptures.

Which study options are available now for a control examination of the breast after augmentation available? Of course first of all the keys off Chest: The value of this investigation method (performed regularly by women themselves or within the framework of the preventive medical examinations by the doctor) should not be underestimated: women with breast implants have Yes, typically a small breast. This means that node formations are often early palpable (due to tumor or rupture of breast implant) and can thus be detected. The investigation can be performed even regularly by palpation of the patient, it is free and not burdensome (not painful, no radiation). Also ultrasound examinations of the mammary gland can provide valuable information concerning the mammary gland, as well as with regard to breast implant with implant wearers. Mammography finds virtually no application in contrast with breast implant wearers. Sure, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) today represents the widest and most precise investigation of the breast in women with breast implants. Also known as “silent ruptures” enables you to which the patient not even noticed, be detected.

For this reason the American Ministry of health (FDA) recommends a kernspintomografische control of silicone gel implants 3, 5, 7 routinely, 9 years after the breast augmentation. See also: patient information-breast augmentation late August 2011 now held a discussion about silicone gel implants in the United States Department of health. The Chief Scientist of the FDA, Dr. Wiliam Maisel then among other things said in a statement: “Silicone breast implants are safe”. This news was not surprising. It was much more interesting, though, that the Committee agreed that no longer should be recommended patients, three years after a breast augmentation and then after each two years routinely a magnetic resonance imaging to get. The kernspintomografische study (just as a routine measure) is expensive. In Germany, a magnetic resonance imaging of the breast will cost several hundred dollars. These costs are payable by the implant wearer himself. In addition sure to right noted that this very differentiated procedures (MRT) will occasionally over-interpreted and false positives are described. That’s why was consensus that regular, no longer should be recommended routine testing by MRI in women with breast implants made of silicone gel from the FDA. Finally is but again pointed out: regular check-ups after breast augmentation surgery are generally required. Breast implants do not last a lifetime. It is to be expected, that they must be replaced someday or removed. The magnetic resonance imaging remains the gold standard for the study of “silent implant ruptures”. Justified suspicion of a rupture of breast implant an MRI should be made still. Prof. Dr. med. Peter Graf medical specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery
