Sleep Apnea in Schaumburg, IL

The Cause of Your Snoring Could Be Life-Threatening

Is a Common Sleep Disorder Putting You at Risk?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious medical condition causing breathing to start and stop multiple times throughout the night or during sleep – and many people are unaware they even have it. With OSA, soft tissues in the back of the mouth and throat become relaxed, blocking the airway and ultimately putting you at risk for a number of health problems. Minimize your risk and get a better night’s sleep with sleep apnea treatment from Dr. Jignesh Patel.

Treating Sleep Apnea Improves Quality of Sleep and Overall Health

Traditionally, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy has been used to treat OSA, but patient compliance has suffered due to the noisy, clunky and uncomfortable facial mask and machine enabling this treatment. For those who are CPAP intolerant, Dr. Patel offers a simple, easy solution with The Moses® appliance – an intraoral device cleared by the FDA for snoring and OSA. Wearing The Moses® appliance is comfortable and convenient, as it fits snugly over the back teeth the keep oral tissues away from the airway during sleep.

Myrna's Thoughts on SDS

We saw Dr. Patel's picture and his staff in one of those clipper's magazines. There was just something about the picture that just brought you in. We made an appointment and came, and the rest is history. He's just the most warm, genuine person. He makes you feel good — his staff makes you like you're the only one here. He never makes you feel rushed. He never makes you feel uncomfortable. In one word, he's the best.
