Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes you to stop breathing intermittently throughout the night. This disorder can be caused by various factors, and can cause you to snore heavily and stop breathing briefly many times throughout the night. This can result in many problems, including reducing the quality of your sleep and your overall health.

Snoring? Sleep Apnea?

Dr. Brooks and Dr. Todd Babineaux, as members of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, subscribe to the highest standards of patient care within this field.
