TREATMENT FOR SNORING AND SLEEP APNEA
Do you live with a snorer? Snoring is a real problem, not only for the person who snores, but for the disturbed sleep it creates for the whole family.
Loud snoring may also be an alarm bell of a much more serious health problem - sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is potentially life threatening. During a sleep apnea event a person stops breathing for a significant period of time, often followed by an episode of choking and gasping for breath.
Sleep Apnea hurts HEARTS. Sleep Apnea episodes can occur many times each hour. This stoppage of breathing causes oxygen levels to drop and blood pressure to surge. Left untreated, this repeated strain on the body increases your risks for heart failure, atrial fibrillation, stroke, type II diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Sleep Apnea and the related poor quality sleep can also lead to memory loss, head aches, irritability, depression, day time drowsiness, and reduced concentration.
Our mission is to improve your health and quality of life through better sleep.
Our team can assist you with a simple at-home sleep monitor study. The device is the size of a deck of cards and is strapped around your chest. The results of this home study will provide a state of science, detailed analysis of your snoring, sleep apnea events and overall sleep patterns.
This initial screening data will be reviewed with you and a licensed medical professional. After a proper medical diagnosis your treatment options will be discussed. If your doctor feels that an oral appliance is the best treatment option we can provide this service for you.
If you have had a sleep study in the past and have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, but you have been unable or unwilling to use a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device, then an oral appliance may be a wonderful alternative.
Our oral appliance options have documented clinical success in mitigating or even preventing the disruptive and unhealthy effects of snoring. They are comfortable and adjustable, so that we can achieve the best possible medical outcome for you.
Most medical insurance plans provide coverage for sleep apnea treatment. We will explore your medical benefits in advance so that you are aware of your co payment. We provide 0% interest payment options for qualified patients.
