Sleep Apnea Treatment in Lansing
Non-Surgical Therapy for Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Sleep apnea is often under diagnosed. According to one statistic, 90 percent of sleep apnea patients don't even know they have a problem. Symptoms of sleep apnea include daytime drowsiness, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and memory loss, symptoms which can also be attributed to accidents at home, work, or even behind the wheel. Snoring is also a common symptom of sleep apnea. In fact, they have the same primary cause–obstructed airways.
In many patients who struggle with sleep apnea, the tongue or lower jaw will relax during sleep, blocking air's path to the lungs. Sleep apnea can also be attributed to having a narrow arch along the roof of the mouth. The sound you hear when someone snores is the sound of air trying to get through. This blockage is also what causes many sleep apnea patients to stop breathing.
Our doctors are specialists in sleep apnea-related conditions, and we work with patients from all walks of life, especially those who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea but refuse to wear a breathing apparatus like the CPAP because it’s bulky and uncomfortable.
We utilize a revolutionary, custom designed sleep appliance called a Moses appliance. It’s comfortable, less bulky, and helps expand the airways and reposition the tongue so that you breathe comfortably throughout the night.
