Sleep Apnea Diagnosing and Treatment

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep Apnea can lead to a host of comorbidities such as high blood pressure, increase the risk for stroke and cardiac issues, daytime sleepiness, coronary artery disease and increase risk for depression to name a few.  Thanks to our 3D technology we are able to treat and help diagnose sleep apnea.  Our technology will scan the airway, send the patient home with a sleep monitoring device, have the sleep study read by a qualified physician, and fabricate the sleep appliance for our patients.  We can do it all in the comfort of our office!
