There are surgical and non-surgical solutions to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the upper airway is obstructed. When an airway is obstructed oxygen levels become lower, then, the throat obstruction clears and a flow of air starts causing a gasp. Some patient’s obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is worse than others, but can be easily diagnosed with an intraoral evaluation and or CBCT-Scan.
