Our office evaluates for potential sleep-related breathing disorders (such as sleep apnea) to help patients achieve optimal overall health.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a common sleep disorder and occurs when an airway is obstructed, causing shallow breathing or possible pauses in breath. When left untreated, it can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, daytime fatigue, weight gain, acid reflux, headaches, and many other health issues.
Along with these evaluations, we have home sleep tests available to patients at risk of sleep-related breathing disorders. Unlike an in-lab sleep study, this option will allow you to take a sleep test in the comfort and privacy of your own home. If diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can have an oral appliance made for you, an effective and alternative treatment for those who are intolerant to CPAP therapy.
