With more than 200,000 case being diagnosed every year, Sleep Apnea has become a major concern for us caring for our patients. The basic problem is that when some patients sleep, the airway in the throat becomes narrow, limiting the amount of air that can get through. This leads to reduced oxygen being available to supply their bodies.
With our 3D scanning technology and state of the art software, we can screen patients to let them see what their airway looks like. We can also offer a free take home sleep screening test to help patients assess how well they breath when sleeping.
Working with physicians who can diagnose the severity of the problem, we design and craft oral appliances to help open the airway for those patients that will benefit from this type treatment and those who struggle trying to wear a CPAP machine.
