Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by pauses in breathing that not only impact the quality of sleep but can also be life threatening. It is a condition that can go undiagnosed but can be associated with loud snoring or choking sensations while asleep and headaches and sleepiness during waking hours. Our Doctor will perform a comprehensive oral evaluation to determine what type of treatment is most suitable. Often times, an appliance can be fabricated that can reduce snoring and in many cases, sleep apnea. We can also refer patients for a sleep assessment if it is needed.
