SLEEP

Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnea is quite common, it effects millions, and is potentially life threatening, being associated with higher risks of strokes and heart attacks! While you sleep, an apnea occurs when breathing stops for ten seconds or more placing significant strain on your cardiovascular system and heart. These disturbances during sleep prevent air from reaching your lungs!

Treatment Options

Treatment Options

Treatment Options For Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnea may include Oral Appliance Therapy, surgery as a last resort, or a bulky CPAP medical unit that sits beside you during sleep, delivering continuous positive air pressure through a facemask or nasal tube attached to a pump. The CPAP requires a lifetime commitment and proper adjustment to achieve maximum clinical benefits and minimal side effects.

Early Detection & Diagnosis

Early Detection & Diagnosis is vital when it comes to snoring and sleep apnea. Dentists trained in dental sleep medicine and physicians trained in traditional sleep medicine may collaborate in treating patients through accurate diagnosis recording a variety of body functions during sleep. Conducted in a hospital or clinic, a Polysomnograph sensors and measures twelve or more parameters including video monitoring. Reimbursement with co-pay through most medical insurance companies is available.
