Evaluation of Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Loud snoring does a lot more than just irritate your spouse. It could be a sign of more serious health problems. Our sleep specialists in Weston will collaborate with you to ascertain whether your snoring is a result of an underlying sleep issue. 

Frequently, snoring serves as an indicator of sleep apnea, a sleep disturbance that leads people to start and stop their breathing throughout the night. If this condition remains unaddressed, it can pose a significant risk.

Heavy Snoring Can be a Sign of Serious Health Problems.

During your evaluation, your otolaryngologist in Weston will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the nasal passages, oral cavity, throat, palate, and neck. In certain instances, a sleep study conducted within a controlled laboratory setting might be essential to gauge the severity of the snoring and its potential implications for the individual's well-being.

The Inspire® Procedure

The Inspire system employs an implant to enhance the sleep quality of individuals grappling with sleep apnea. What sets Inspire apart is its customizable functionality, allowing you to turn it off and on as needed. 

As you prepare to sleep, activating the Inspire device initiates the gradual opening of your airways. Upon waking, you can easily deactivate the device with the touch of a button.

CPAP Prescription and Monitoring

A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) apparatus is worn during sleep to alleviate sleep apnea and mitigate its effects. To acquire CPAP machines in the United States, a prescription is mandatory. 

At SFENTA, we are equipped to assess your symptoms and determine the appropriate treatments. We’ll help you choose the right CPAP machine and offer maintenance guidance, ensuring you can maximize its benefits.

Sleep Apnea Surgery 

In situations where non-surgical remedies fall short in alleviating sleep apnea, surgical interventions might become the optimal solution. SFENTA presents a range of sleep apnea surgeries intended to widen the air passages and facilitate smoother respiration. Furthermore, we provide two implantable devices designed to effectively address sleep apnea symptoms through surgical means. Your doctor will work with you to find the right treatment for your unique needs.
