Dr. Roubal and his staff are passionate about helping people who suffer from Sleep Disorders and recognize the symptoms before they turn into serious consequences. Snoring is the most physically noticeable precursor to identifying a person with Sleep Apnea. It is important to realize that most people with Sleep Apnea will snore, however, not all snorers have Sleep Apnea. Snoring is defined as an obstruction in the airway that can cause loud sounds and vibrations. Unlike snoring, Sleep Apnea is a disruption in the airflow that will prevent a person from breathing periodically throughout the night (sometimes several hundred episodes a night). Consequently, sleep apnea can be identified through snoring, but it is a far more dangerous problem if left untreated.
Above are oral appliances that can be used to treat sleep apnea and snoring.
Many of our Sleep Apnea patients experience snoring, tiredness or fatigue, frequent sleep disruptions, morning headaches, changes in mood or behavior, memory loss, choking, or gasping for air in the middle of the night. Whether this is a problem that developed over time or has recently entered your life, we realize that these symptoms can often disrupt your lifestyle.
If you experience any combination of the issues above and have been given medication to mitigate these symptoms, we encourage you come see us to treat the source of the problem to promote complete healing.
