Many patients who struggle with sleep apnea may choose to visit a sleep clinic and undergo tests that last a lengthy period of time. However, these clinics can sometimes prove to be unreliable. They often involve bringing patients away from the comfort of their own home and place them in an unfamiliar environment, in turn making their results less accurate. We recommend that you consider taking a quicker and more comfortable screening for sleep apnea from Dental Sleep Medicine Hawaii.

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common health issue for both children and adults. This condition often occurs when your breathing becomes restricted by muscles that relax as you sleep, causing soft tissue to block your airway. Many other oral conditions can contribute to having an obstructed airway and hinder you from sleeping properly. Depending on your symptoms, you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea or other sleep disorders such as snoring and central sleep apnea.
