Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is Sleep Apnea?

It is a cessation of breath for 10 seconds or longer during sleep, usually caused by the collapse of soft tissue on the rear of the throat resulting in a blocked or narrowed airway.

•  Snoring
•  Gasping or choking during sleep
•  Excessive daytime sleepiness
•  Headaches
•  Irritability
•  Memory loss
•  Nightime grinding of teeth

What are the Possible Consequences of Untreated Sleep Apnea?

•  Shortened life span

How Do You Know If You Have Sleep Apnea?

You may prescreen yourself by taking one of the three self-tests found below.

If you feel that you may have sleep apnea, you should be evaluated through a sleep study, or polysomnogram. You may contact your primary care physician to pursue this, or we would be happy to refer you to a local sleep physician.

How is Sleep Apnea Treated?

Most traditional treatment has involved the use of CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure).

For mild to moderate sleep apnea, an oral appliance has been accepted as an equally viable method of treatment. We are pleased to offer the oral appliances in our practice to apnea sufferers. We are certified by the Sleep Optima Network and members of the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines.
