Sleep Apnea

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a relatively common sleep disorder that can be effectively treated with the assistance of a physician or dentist.

There are three types of sleep apnea, including obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea and mixed (or complex) sleep apnea. While obstructive sleep apnea is by far the most common—the National Sleep Foundation says it affects more than 18 million adults—central sleep apnea can be more serious.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms and Treatments

  • Chronic Snoring
  • Hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness)
  • Breathing Cessation During Sleep
  • Abrupt awakenings with shortness of breath
  • And Others

Our treatments can be as simple as dental appliances, or as extensive as a continuous positive airway pressure device, or CPAP machine. For those who’ve tried a CPAP machine and find it too unwieldy or too noisy for your sleeping partner, we offer a device called SomnoMed for an easier alternative.
