How do you find out if you have Sleep Apnea?Sleep problems are diagnosed by a sleep study. We now offer home sleep testing. We can send you home with a device that will monitor your breathing and other vital signs while you sleep. You bring it back and we download all the data for analysis. A physician will determine whether or not you have a sleep disorder.
How is Sleep Apnea treated?Options for sleep apnea treatment include an oral appliance, nasal surgery, and a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). We can help determine if you are a candidate for an oral appliance to treat sleep apnea and snoring.
What if I already have a CPAP machine, but I don’t like to wear it?Research shows that patients are much more accepting of oral appliance therapy than CPAP. If you have mild or moderate sleep apnea, and you struggle with your CPAP, an oral appliance can make it easier for you to successfully treat your condition.
