Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Are you tired, stressed out, and moody because of interrupted sleep? Sleep apnea or OSA is a condition in which breathing stops for periods of 10 seconds or longer causing excessive daytime tiredness. Oral sleep appliances are now recommended over a CPAP for the treatment of mild and moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep apnea can affect your overall health and quality of life and when left untreated, has been linked to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, as well as work and driving-related accidents.

During your appointment to discuss snoring and sleep apnea, you can expect the following:

  • Review your medical history

  • Discuss your sleep test results if you have them with you

  • Refer you for either an in-lab sleep test (PSG) or home sleep test (HST) if you have not had one

  • Discuss different treatment options including oral appliance therapy; review different appliances and their pros and cons

  • Reach out to your PCP and medical insurance company should we decide to move forward with oral appliance therapy to treat your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
