Sleep Disordered Breathing
- Nasal Obstruction
Around the world healthcare providers are beginning to pay careful attention to the overall health benefits of healthy breathing during sleep.
Compromised breathing during sleep, such as obstructive sleep apnea, has been connected to several health conditions which can be serious and even life-threatening.
Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder. People who suffer from this condition stop breathing intermittently while sleep.
The main types of sleep apnea:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which can be mild, moderate or severe
Central Sleep Apnea
Complex/Mixed Sleep Apnea
Energy + Vitality
Physicians are of the opinion that treating your sleep apnea will impact your overall health and vitality.
Unfortunately, millions of people in the US who suffer from sleep apnea remain undiagnosed.
If you suspect you or someone you love is suffering from sleep apnea, you should consult a specially-trained dentist in Craniofacial Sleep Medicine.
The breathing wellness movement goes beyond the historical palliative paradigm within dental sleep medicine. Palliative treatments result in a lifetime intervention and treatment. Breathing wellness provides opportunities for hope for airway enhancement and restoration.
Patients suffering from sleep disordered breathing, including obstructive sleep apnea or due to midfacial hypoplasia and/or mandibular retrognathia (underdeveloped upper and lower jaws) often present with other health concerns making treatment planning crucial to achieve optimal outcomes.
We collaborate with physicians, medical specialists, adjunctive therapists, dentists and other members of a multidisciplinary team to develop and refine treatment planning and procedures to promote the best possible outcomes for patients.
