What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is caused by tissues in the back of your throat blocking your airway. When you have excessive tissues, they collapse as you breathe during the night and block off your airway.
Once the airway is blocked, you will automatically be jolted awake from your sleep. A blocked airway also results in loud snoring.
It’s important to see us right away if you suspect you suffer from sleep apnea, which can affect your blood pressure, heart, and more.
Determining If You Have Sleep Apnea
Dr. DiBona is highly trained in sleep apnea. She may do an examination to check for physical evidence of the condition, as well as review your medical history and your family’s medical history.
If she suspects sleep apnea, she will order a sleep study to confirm a diagnosis and rule out other sleep disorders. These studies include in-home studies and off-site studies.
Treating Your Snoring & Sleep Apnea Issues
If your study results confirm sleep apnea, Dr. DiBona will provide you with an oral appliance that is custom made to fit comfortably in your mouth. The oral appliance is worn while you sleep to move your jaw forward for the best air movement.
One of the main benefits of the appliance is that it keeps your airway open when you sleep and is a much more comfortable alternative to a CPAP device, a traditional sleep apnea solution. Your medical insurance may cover this treatment.
