For Quiet, Restful Sleep

Crankiness, constant fatigue, bad breath — they’re all tied to the type of low-quality sleep that sleep apnea causes.

Dr. Lawson helps you achieve better sleep. From monitoring for sleep apnea to using custom-fitted sleep appliances to gently realign your mouth and jaws, your body will get the steady flow of oxygen it needs to reach deep, restful slumber.

You’ll feel better, think more clearly, and have the energy to get more out of every single day.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Basics

Some people prefer to speak with their primary care physician first, but you don’t need a referral to book a sleep apnea consultation with us.

In most cases, people with sleep apnea can be treated using either a sleep apnea appliance or a special breathing apparatus called a CPAP machine. In rare cases, treatment involves surgery.

At-home sleep apnea monitoring doesn’t collect as much data as a lab test, but is still effective (up to 91%) at accurately identifying sleep apnea while also being significantly more affordable.

In many cases, insurance covers some or even all costs related to sleep apnea. If you’re thinking of exploring sleep apnea treatment, you’ll want to talk to your insurance provider to see what coverage you’re eligible for.

Put sleep apnea to bed for good.

Wake up to quality sleep and better health with Dr. Jessica Lawson.
