Additionally, emerging research shows that untreated sleep apnea increases your risk of suffering from a number of whole-body health issues down the road:
The good news is that there are treatments available to help you beat sleep apnea for good!
When you begin treatment, Dr. Vareldzis will give you a machine to take home so you can complete a sleep study in the comfort of your own bed. The data from this study allows Dr. V to make treatment recommendations that are scientifically supported and sound. We take the guesswork out of sleep apnea care.
Our team will take the time to review your treatment plans, explain them in detail, and answer any questions that you may have. We understand that sleep apnea treatment can seem overwhelming and complicated; we’re here to guide you through the process.
Let's be honest: CPAP just doesn't work for a lot of people. The oral appliances that we use to treat sleep apnea are more convenient, more comfortable, and more affordable than traditional CPAP machines.
