What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects millions of people in the United States. With obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) being the most common form, it occurs when a blockage forms in the throat, resulting in a person experiencing interruptions that include gasping or choking. This can happen once or hundreds of times each night, leading to chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of other serious health complications like stroke and heart attack.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

The treatment for sleep apnea can vary from patient to patient. While some individuals may benefit from continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment, which incorporates the use of a bulky device and mask that must be worn throughout the night, others tend to find help with the use of a customized oral appliance.

Designed for comfort and effectiveness, Dr. Partovi uses MAD, also known as mandibular advancement devices. A mouthpiece that shifts the jaw forward, it helps to keep the airway open so that snoring and sleep apnea symptoms dissipate, leading to deeper, more restorative rest.
