Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Many people share the ongoing problems of snoring and sleep apnea. These conditions are caused by a narrowing or collapse of the airway during sleep. Oral Airway Dilator Appliances are devices designed to re-position the lower jaw so the air can flow freely. Use of these appliances reduces or eliminates snoring and can manage Sleep Apnea, leading to a quieter, more restful night's sleep.
The initial visit with Dr. Quintana is designed specifically to take a detailed history of the sleep disorder. The Sleep Study is then reviewed, followed by a thorough clinical examination that is specific to the head, neck, and airway. This examination is for preparation of the fabrication of the Oral Appliance. Following the examination and testing, Dr. Quintana will discuss the findings, and provide a review of the available oral appliances. A specific health management plan will be designed by Dr. Quintana in conjunction with your Sleep Medicine Physician.
