Sleep Apnea Services
Often going undiagnosed, sleep apnea is a very common disorder involving pauses in breathing or taking shallow breaths while you are sleeping. These pauses can last seconds or minutes and can occur up to 30 times in a hour. After these pauses, breathing can suddenly revert to normal and often does so with a loud snorting sound, waking affected people up and leading to poor sleep patterns.
Home Sleep Study
To help us determine whether you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, we offer a take-home digital device that you can wear with no significant discomfort. The device analyzes your sleeping patterns and can help us to diagnose the obstructive sleep apnea. If it results that you do have OSA, Dr. Hutto may be able to treat it easily and conservatively with a bespoke oral appliance.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring Appliances
If testing reveals that you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea or excessive snoring caused by over-relaxing mouth and throat tissues obstructing your airway, we may treat this by offering a custom-designed oral appliance. This appliance will help prevent any airway collapses by supporting your jaw and keeping your airway open at all times during sleep.
