Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a condition in which the airway is obstructed during sleep. When the airway is obstructed, it disrupts sleep and causes sleep deprivation, excessive tiredness and can eventually lead to systemic issues such as cardiovascular complications. At our office, we help facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Home Sleep Study
An at home sleep study measures several areas of your sleep that help determine your sleep patterns. Based on the findings of the sleep study, we will consult with a physician and may recommend oral appliances to open the airway during sleep.
Oral appliances are offered to help treat bruxism (grinding) and aid in the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
