Sleep Apnea

Sleep-Disordered Breathing

Sleep-Disordered breathing or sleep apnea, as you may know, can be life-threatening, depending on the severity.

What are the signs of Sleep-Disordered Breathing or sleep apnea?

  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Loud snoring at night
  • Waking up at night short of breath
  • Snorting or choking sounds during the night
    (indicating a restart of breathing)
  • Headaches upon waking in the morning
  • Falling asleep unintentionally during the day
  • Extreme drowsiness throughout the day

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our practice.

We can refer you to a sleep apnea specialist. The specialist may recommend a sleep study to diagnose the precise extent of the problem and can prescribe appropriate treatment. Depending on your situation, treatment may involve an oral device that we can custom-create for you.

If you dream about waking up feeling refreshed rather than feeling like you need to go back to bed, let us help you.
