Sleep Apnea Treatment with Dr. Carollo

Obstructive airway sleep apnea is the most common form of this ailment. During the night, your airway may become obstructed by muscle and tissue that relax while you sleep. Hence, the snoring. When this obstruction interferes with breathing, your brain sends the body a signal to awaken in order to restart breathing. This may happen hundreds of times during a typical night.

When you come to Dr. Carollo for sleep apnea treatment, we’ll begin with an assessment and a questionnaire. If we determine that you have sleep apnea, then we will recommend solutions. For many years, the CPAP (Constant Positive Airway Pressure) machine was the only option. Many people find them to be uncomfortable. Today, thankfully, Dr. Carollo can fabricate an oral appliance designed to keep your airway open while you sleep. Wearing this, you and your bed partner can enjoy night after silent night of restful sleep.
