See How Our Treatment Can Help You Sleep Better
Sleep apnea, the condition itself is lack of air into your body that causes a lot of problems systemically. It starts from the mouth and the nose and if we can get more air into the body then it improves overall health. One of the things we do is recognize that and whether the patient has some form of apnea, whether it’s during the day or during their sleep. When we find out that it is, or sometimes patients will even tell us, mild to moderate, we can take care of here. We give them an appliance that helps them to increase their airway. Anything more severe than that, their PCP could probably diagnose that and do like a sleep test. We recommended when we see somebody who has never had, or who did not know that they had any kind of apnea, we will recommend them to get a sleep test and get a diagnosis in that way. If it is mild to moderate, we’ll offer them recommended treatment. If it’s more severe, they can get treatment from their PCP. It’s funny because their significant others can sleep. So that’s how they know that they’re doing well because their significant others are doing well and they’re not getting kicked out.
