Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment
Is SNORING a problem in your household? Are you TIRED of not getting restful sleep? If you answered YES, then there is a solution we can help you with!
Snoring is often a precursor to something more serious called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Snoring and OSA are similar respiratory sleep disorders. Snoring occurs when the air you breathe vibrates the tissues of the airway due to a blocked or narrowed airway (nose, mouth, or throat). OSA occurs when your breathing regularly stops or is slowed for 10 seconds or longer due to blocked or narrowed airways (nose, mouth or throat). Airway blockage may be caused by excess tissue in the throat or nasal passages, large tonsils, a large tongue and sometimes the structure of the jaw itself.
If suspect you have OSA, please see your physician for a referral to a sleep center.
If you have been diagnosed with OSA and have been prescribed a CPAP machine but find you cannot use it, The Moses Appliance may be an effective alternative.
