A Nine News crew came in to interview a patient and myself about the NightLase laser snoring treatment. They were interested to see whether it worked and spoke to one of our patients that had a successful treatment. After that I was interviewed about the treatment and how it works to stop snoring and help patients and their partners sleep better. They also got some footage of the laser in action. About 40 min of footage resulted in a 2 min segment. Enjoy!

Dr Jason Pang was invited by Dr Derek Mahoney to speak at his mini-residency about the use of lasers on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Increasing numbers of people are seeking treatment for snoring and sleep apnoea, yet many do not know that they can get help from dental practitioners. As a leader in the field of both laser and sleep dentistry, it was an opportunity for attendees to hear the latest developments in dental sleep medicine from Dr Pang. He presented the science and the results of various laser treatments for sleep disordered breathing. He showed not only the current research being done but also his own results as the first dental practitioner in NSW to do the patented NightLase treatment.

It’s been a month since we started the laser snoring treatments and we’ve seen over 90% of patients significantly reduce or stop snoring. That equates to many more hours of quality sleep each week for each patient.
Cosmic Smile Laser Dental is still the only dental surgery in NSW to perform the laser snoring treatment.
NightLase is a fast, patient-friendly and practically non-invasive treatment for snoring. It reduces snoring intensity with a gentle laser light treatment. It also can be used to help treat sleep apnoea for patients who can’t tolerate CPAP masks or oral devices. There is no anaesthesia needed for this procedure. Used effectively and safely in Europe for many years, this exciting procedure is now available in Australia.

With so many shapes, sizes and styles of toothbrushes on the market, deciding which kind to buy can be confusing. Here’s what you should look for:
Most dental professionals agree that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are also preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth. (more…)
Sounds like scaremongering but unfortunately it is scarily true! In Feb 2012, The Lancet published an article about an 82-year old woman in Italy dying from Legionnaire’s disease attributed to Legionella infection from the contaminated water lines of a dental clinic. The lady’s home was found to be free of the bacteria while her dentist’s dental pump was found to have high levels of the rare strain of Legionella pneumophila. This was probably the first documented case of transmission of Legionnaires’ disease from exposure to Legionella pneumophila in a dental unit waterline. While Legionella is a common bacteria found in stagnant water, is it when it is in high concentrations and aerosolised that it can present a danger to patients. (more…)
