You may not be getting a good night’s sleep if you snore or have sleep apnea. Everybody with sleep apnea snores, but not every snorer has sleep apnea. Schedule a consultation for a full evaluation of your breathing, including a review of your test results. Your treatment options may include oral appliance therapy, a CPAP machine or a combination of both. Children and adults can be fitted for sleep solution appliances.
In some cases, no appliance is necessary to treat sleep apnea. In adults, the most common cause of obstructive sleep apnea is excess weight and obesity. Nutrition counseling and a willingness to adopt a healthier lifestyle may be your best solution. Not sleeping well at night may be causing weight gain, putting you in a seemingly impossible cycle to break. Take the first step to a better night’s sleep by scheduling a sleep consultation.
Some children who struggle to pay attention in school or who wet the bed have a sleep dysfunction. An airway issue may be causing your child to get a restless night of sleep that can lead to daytime drowsiness at school, short attention span or hyperactivity. An overnight sleep study can be the start to a better night’s sleep for your child and your entire family.
