Dr. Sheila Birth Can Help You
Sleep apnea can take a toll on your daily abilities and endanger your life. Dr. Birth is an expert in her field and can make sure you get the correct diagnosis and treatment, so you won’t have to worry about interrupted sleep anymore.
Our office features effective custom-made FDA-approved sleep apnea treatments created at our in-office lab. Whether you’re affected by sleep apnea, snoring, or both, Dr. Birth can help you.
Sleep Apnea Screening
The first part of getting your life back from sleep apnea is to ensure you have to correct diagnosis. Dr. Birth will conduct a thorough examination, ask questions about your lifestyle as well as sleep, and screen you using the Epworth questionnaire.
She’ll then use a digital scanner to take noninvasive impressions of your teeth. If you tend to snore loudly and persistently, she’ll use a 3D X-ray machine to measure your airways. Her in-depth screening process can determine the treatment that’s best for you.
Your Treatment Options
Dr. Birth recommends oral appliances for sleep apnea and snoring treatment, and it’s easy to see why. They’re portable and customized to you, so they’re comfortable as well as easy to travel with. The following appliances are offered by Dr. Birth:
- Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs): This type of oral appliance works by moving your lower jaw forward slightly. Moving the jaw forward can help to open up your airway and provide more room for air to pass through while you’re asleep.
- HERBST Appliance: Often used to help children’s lower jaws develop in a forward direction, these appliances can correct overbites before the mouth is fully developed.
- EMA Appliance: These appliances are designed to help treat TMJ issues and are flexible for maximum comfort. Elastic straps allow the fit of the appliance to be adjusted as necessary.
Sleep Well Through the Night
Sleep is a time of peace, and it can be for you again. Sleep apnea treatment can help to elevate your quality of life so you have the energy for people and activities you love.
