Sleep Apnea Appliance Therapy

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which a person’s breathing is disrupted during sleep. People with sleep apnea stop breathing for ten seconds or more, and this can occur hundreds of times nightly. Patients who visit miVIP Surgery Centers for a procedure like UPPP, Uvuloplasty or adenoid removal will not only sleep better, but also prevent serious health problems. Sleep apnea first became the subject of widespread attention and research about 30 years ago. Since then, treatment options have advanced significantly. Unfortunately, there are still a high number of people who suffer from the condition.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 50 million Americans have sleep or wakeful disorders, while the National Sleep Foundation reports that upwards of 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Many victims are not even aware that they have the condition.
