Get More Information About Our Sleep Apnea Treatment
What we do here is I do treat sleep apnea. What we do is we make a sleep device that fits over top of their teeth. We take a custom tray and we get a molds of upper and lower teeth. We actually bring your lower jaw forward, open up your wind pipe. For those, you just can’t wear CPAP. We do a lot of mild and moderate kind of sleep apnea patients where we can do that and bring the lower jaw out and not the sleep apneas in. What the sleep apnea is is when you stop breathing. I’ve had a lady sitting in the chair, she went to a physician, he said, The only thing I can do for you is a CPAP. She couldn’t wear a CPAP. I said, Let me see if I can help you. Made her a sleep appliance. She came in the next day crying because she was so happy that we were able to help, and get a good night’s sleep. How we check it to make sure, we send home a pulse ox afterwards—this is what’s the difference between our practice and everybody else. Then, we send home another sleep study. Then, we’ll check it out here and have a sleep physician read it to make sure the device is working like it’s supposed to be working.
