Our treatments can help with sleep apnea, allergies and asthma, bedwetting, crooked or crowded teeth, hypertension, TMJ and snoring.
We diagnose and treat breathing and sleep disorders caused by airway restriction due to underdeveloped jaws. We can potentially help you with droopy eyes, speech issues, mouth breathing, snoring, TMJ pain, chronic tiredness, frequent sinus issues and allergies.
Our doctors have completed extensive training in the identification and treatment of patients suffering from poor sleep, sleep disordered breathing, and obstructive sleep apnea.
We use the SleepImage Adult Ring (SI PO2) for multi-night tracking. We supply the Ring and you simply apply the recorder when going to sleep and start a recording in the SleepImage App, each recording can be stopped at the end of the sleep period if doing multiple night studies.
Sleep apnea and the lack of restful sleep have a direct link to weight gain, obesity, and the inability to lose weight. When your body does not receive the rest it needs, it increases the production of Ghrelin, which is the hormone that makes you feel hungry. Your body also produces less Leptin, which is the hormone that makes you feel satiated. So, your hormones are telling your body it is hungry and never satiated, causing you to eat more than you might typically eat.
Seasonal allergies and asthma are often the result of improper breathing. Proper breathing is through the nose, which filters and humidifies the air you breathe. This filtration process protects your respiratory system, decreasing and preventing airway and lung inflammation.
Snoring occurs when a “partial” obstruction, or a constriction of the airway, causes the air you are breathing to become turbulent. That turbulence creates vibration of tissues in the nose or throat that we hear as snoring. The deeper stages of sleep often result in more relaxed tissues that surround the airway, which can increase snoring and potentially create obstructive sleep apnea.
