Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person stops breathing for short periods of time during their sleep. It can cause fatigue, irritability, morning headaches, memory trouble, high blood pressure, and other health issues. If a sleep study has determined that a person has sleep apnea, Dr. Torrado can create an oral appliance that can be worn at night. The goal of the appliance is to push the jaw forward, opening the airways, in order to breathe easier.
