SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT IN BEAVERTON, OR

Snoring can be a source of embarrassment, and it can prevent your bed partner from getting a good night’s sleep. But it is also indicative of a much more serious condition called sleep apnea. The National Institutes of Health estimate that roughly 12 million Americans have sleep apnea, although many of these cases are never properly diagnosed and treated. This is very problematic, since sleep apnea can lead to serious health issues when it goes untreated.

If you believe you may be suffering from sleep apnea, it is important to seek treatment at once. Dr. Michael Negru understands the serious risks associated with this condition, and he can help you get the relief you need. Please call today to schedule a consultation at our Beaverton dentistry office.

The most common form of the condition is called obstructive sleep apnea. It is occurs when the soft tissue in your throat collapses and blocks your airway.
