Steps to Identifying Your Sleep Apnea
During your consultation, Dr. Han will discuss your symptoms and conduct an oral exam.
He will look at factors like your weight and examine your throat, tonsils, and other tissue to see if your upper airway is especially narrow.
To officially diagnose sleep apnea, Dr. Han may recommend a sleep study, which can often be done at home.
DiagnosisYou will wear a monitoring device while you sleep that measures heart rate, blood oxygen levels, brain activity, and breathing patterns. The results will be submitted to a trusted sleep study specialist.
Oral Appliance Creation
If sleep apnea is confirmed, you will return to Dr. Han to be custom fitted with an oral appliance.
How an Oral Appliance Treats Sleep Apnea
The customized night guard has springs that gently move your lower jaw forward. This opens your upper airway to allow better airflow while you sleep.
Sometimes your tongue can block the back of your throat during sleep. Your night guard can also stop that potential problem from happening.

Other Kinds of Sleep Apnea
Besides obstructive sleep apnea, there are two other forms of sleep apnea:
Central Sleep Apnea
Central sleep apnea occurs when the muscles that control your breathing do not receive the correct signals from your brain.
Complex Sleep Apnea
This form of apnea develops when someone suffers from a combination of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
If you are diagnosed with central sleep apnea or complex sleep apnea syndrome, Dr. Han may be able to refer you to a local specialist in the area.
