Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Millions of people suffer from sleeping disorders. We successfully treat many of these conditions, including sleep apnea and snoring. Generally, treatment options are not too painful or uncomfortable, but may take some getting used to.
Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing, or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep. Each pause can last from about ten seconds to a few minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more per hour.
Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures, due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. In some cases, the sound may be soft and not too disturbing. In other cases, however, snoring can be loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep may also be an early sign of sleep apnea.
