SLEEP AND SNORING
Our onsite sleep lab allows our patients the convenience of getting all their testing and treatment in one location. After the sleep study we can review the results with the patient and consider our treatment options. Plan A is always simple things like weight loss, exercise, sleep positioning, nasal steroid spray, breath rite strips, and even dental appliances. Plan B is usually some type of CPAP. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. It is a device that the patient wears (like a nose or face mask) that keeps the tissues from collapsing by continuously blowing positive air pressure into the nose. Plan C is surgery. This can vary from nasal airway surgery all the way to tonsil and palatal surgery and even involve the base of tongue.
