Sleep Apnea Treatment

For decades, the standard sleep apnea treatment was a CPAP machine, a device that kept the airway open by emitting a constant stream of air through a mask worn over the face. However, the mask could be bulky and uncomfortable, and the machine itself produced a droning noise that could make falling asleep difficult. Instead, Dr. Rivera can create a custom oral appliance that fits over your teeth like a mouthguard. It gently shifts your jaw forward to keep your airway open and unobstructed throughout the night.

 

At-Home Sleep Testing

Traditionally, testing for sleep apnea meant traveling to a special laboratory and having to spend the night in an unfamiliar place. Fortunately, Dr. Rivera can make the process much easier with at-home sleep apnea testing. She’ll provide you with a device equipped with a number of sensors that you’ll wear to bed, which will monitor your heart rate, oxygen saturation, time spent snoring, and other vital information that can help a sleep expert diagnose sleep apnea.
