In order to fulfill the essential number of regenerating sleep cycles the average adult needs 7-8 hours. A five stage sleep cycle repeats consistently throughout the night. One complete sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes. So during an average night’s sleep (8 hours), an adult will experience about four or five cycles of sleep.
The concept of setting the clocks ahead in the spring in order to make better use of natural daylight was first introduced in the US by inventor Benjamin Franklin in 1784.
During his time as an American envoy to France, Ben Franklin publisher of the old English proverb, “Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” anonymously published a letter suggesting that Parisians economize on candles by rising earlier to use morning sunlight. This 1784 satire proposed taxing shutters, rationing candles, and waking the public by ringing church bells and firing cannons at sunrise.
US President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted year-round DST in the United States, called “War Time” during World War II from February 9, 1942 to September 30, 1945. The change was implemented 40 days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and during this time, the U.S. time zones were called “Eastern War Time”, “Central War Time”, and “Pacific War Time”. After the surrender of Japan in mid-August 1945, the time zones were relabeled “Peace Time”.
Congress decided to end the confusion and establish the Uniform Time Act of 1966 that stated DST would begin on the last Sunday of April and end on the last Sunday of October. However, states still had the ability to be exempt from DST by passing a local ordinance.Healthy nights of sleep are essential to recharge our human organs and maintain good health and longevity.

On Sept. 12th and 13th you are given the chance to win big in
Hartford, CT or in Las Vegas, NV
On Fri. and Sat., September 12, 13, you can pick your training by either of these two most respected Dental Sleep Medicine educators in the nation.
Sleep Group Solutions presents:
Dr. Anjoo Ely in Hartford
Dr. Marty Lipsey in Las Vegas
The choice is yours; either way, next week YOU WIN!
The current need and “buzz” is in discovering and treating sleep apnea. Patients are asking their Dentists about sleep apnea. How comfortable are YOU with the answers? It is reported that less than 4% of practicing Dentists are able to assist the more than 50 million people who suffer from sleep apnea. There is a growing public awareness of the hazards that come from a nocturnal stoppage of breathing. Your patients are becoming increasingly more concerned about the blockage of oxygen to the brain and other organs. Strokes. Heart attacks. Diabetes. As a Care Giver, think of how you can serve. Serve an unfilled need.
These 2 day courses are designed to provide you with the knowledge to confidently return to your practice and immediately begin implementing new screening and treatment protocols.

Dr. Barry Freydberg, is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, a Fellow of the International College of Dentists, a Fellow of the American College of Dentists and a Fellow of the International Academy for Dental-Facial Esthetics. He is considered a pioneer in raising dentists’ awareness of the ever-growing link between high technology and practice and clinical management. Barry is a frequent presenter of Sleep Group Solutions’ training seminars.
This is an opportunity to stand out in your community as a skilled leader in discovering and treating the victims of Sleep Apnea. One of every three patients you see have the symptoms of Sleep Apnea. Do you want to help them?P.S.
By the way, did you know how many motor vehicle accidents each year can be blamed on fatigue? The number is 100,000 and climbing, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Think of this way: can you imagine how much safer our roads would be if everyone would just get enough HEALTHY sleep?

Size matters. That old quip has been used, misused and abused. But when it comes to the size of your telomeres, nothing could be more important to you. The length of your telomeres can determine how long and how well you will live. Longevity and Quality of Life. Telomeres are little protective caps at the ends of your chromosomes. They are likened to the aglets at the ends of your shoe laces, protecting your laces from fraying. In the journal Sleep, January issue, there are several studies relating sleep to telomere length (TL). One study shows the connection of sleep to longevity. The evidence is piling up that the aging process may be accelerated by not getting enough quality sleep. "Telomeres are the DNA-protein structures located like caps at the ends of chromosomes. They shorten with aging and may also be a marker of biological, not chronological, aging. They are believed to be involved in protecting the chromosome from inflammation and various stressors. In some studies, their diminishing length has been associated with diabetes and atherosclerosis." The study demonstrated that poor sleepers, as defined by poor sleep quality or short duration (less than 7 hours per night), had significantly shorter telomere length. Even more interesting was the finding that in the older adults, adequate sleep was associated with telomere lengths comparable to middle-aged adults. The authors concluded that the study provides evidence that sleep is linked to cellular aging.
We know that telomeres shorten with biological aging. We also know that they shorten in response to chronic inflammation and oxidative stress. In fact, even the telomeres of newborns exposed to physiological stressors in utero have been found to be shorter. We also have learned that the shortening of telomeres can result in increased susceptibility to tissue damage, including cancer. Telomeres protect chromosome ends from being mistaken for broken pieces of DNA that would otherwise be fixed by cellular repair . When the telomeres get short enough, our cells no longer divide and our body stops making those cells. Over time, this leads to aging and death.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, President Washington!
282 years old February 22, 1732-2014
Dentistry has come a long way since Dr. John Greenwood gave you those dentures in 1789 made from >>>>>>>>
There must be dozens of portraits of George Washington. I have never seen any with him smiling. Those darn Hippo dentures with the spring openers must have been painful.
Was the throat infection that took George Washington’s life caused by colonies of bacteria that grew in his world famous dentures? What material were they made from?
By the time he became President, in 1789, at age 57, he had only one tooth remaining, At his inauguration, Washington was wearing a full set of dentures which were attached to his final tooth. Washington had frequent dental problems during his tenure as commanding general of the Continental Army. A famous painting of Washington in 1779 shows a scar on his left cheek, believed to be the result of a badly abscessed tooth.
One cannot help but wonder if his teeth might have been the source of the chronic infections he suffered. His dental and health problems were intertwined.
Washington was treated by no fewer than eight prominent dentists who practiced in colonial America, but his favorite was Dr. John Greenwood. Dr. Greenwood’s dentures had a base of hippopotamus ivory carved to fit the gums. The upper denture had ivory teeth and the lower plate consisted of eight human teeth fastened by gold pivots that screwed into the base. The set was secured in his mouth by spiral springs. The upper and lower gold plates were connected by springs which pushed the upper and lower plates against the upper and lower ridges of his mouth to hold them in place. Washington actually had to actively close his jaws tightly to make his teeth bite together.
His final dentures were made in 1798, the year before he died. This set had a swaged gold plate with individual backing for each tooth and was fastened together by rivets. Today, the lower denture is on display in the National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore, and another the set was donated to the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, the oldest dental college in the world.
