Snoring & Sleep Apnoea
While snoring may be socially inconvenient, it can be a sign of a serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
There are now innovative non surgical and surgical treatments for snoring and OSA.
Dr Theo has a special interest in modern treatment which is tailored to the individual patient. He works closely with sleep physicians as well as sub specialist dentists to obtain the best results for his patients.
While CPAP may work for many people, those who don't tolerate it or who don't have sleep apnoea will likely benefit from surgical treatment. This may include nasal surgery to "unblock the nose", throat or tonsillar surgery or even tongue base channelling. Selecting the right operation for the right anatomical circumstances in individual patients is the key to success and Dr Theo has advanced digital video equipment which allows HD video assessment of the entire airway to determine the best treatment pathway.
