WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
This is a potentially fatal breathing disorder that occurs during sleep. Essentially, sufferers repeatedly stop breathing while they’re sleeping. This could result in the body not receiving enough oxygen.
HOW WE CAN HELP
We are thrilled to announce that our office is now treating mild to moderate sleep apnea as we are now able to make an oral mandibular advancement splint (MAS). This is a device that is inserted in the mouth to help treat sleep apnea.
We offer home sleep tests, in which a Sleep Apnea Specialist MD analyzes the situation and sends us a detailed report.
The Eccovision Acoustic Pharyngometer will give us an accurate position for where to place the jaw to get the best results while keeping the sleeper a comfortable position.
Mandibular advancement splints may also help improve:
- Coronary artery disease
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Migraine/tension headache syndrome
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Mitral valve prolapse syndrome
- Restless leg depression
We have over 10 years’ worth of experience and research in sleep apnea oral appliance therapy. Please call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation. We will be happy to test, answer any concerns, and file your medical insurance. We are here to walk you through each step to help you enjoy a peaceful night of sleep again!
