Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatment

About Snoring & Sleep Apnea

What is Sleep Apnea?

Snoring may be a sign of a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA). OSA is characterized by multiple episodes of breathing pauses greater than 10 seconds at a time occurring during sleep. The pauses are usually when the muscles in the back of the throat relax and the tongue is pressed against them creating a blockage of the airway.

Should I be concerned about Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a dangerous medical condition. It may cause many health consequences like heart attack, stroke, weight problems, diabetes, high blood pressure and more.

There are several ways to treat OSA.
Use of a CPAP or BIPAP machine
Use of an oral appliance.

CPAP Machine Alternative

If you think you have OSA or have been diagnosed with OSA and use a CPAP machine and are not happy with it, we may be able to help you with a custom fit oral appliance. This could be the most comfortable option for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
