Patients with snoring problems or other symptoms of sleep apnea in Virginia Beach, VA and the Tidewater area, are now invited to receive treatment from Drs. Melvin Ford, Klaus Guter and James Gray. In addition to non-surgical treatment methods, Drs. Ford, Guter and Gray also offer sleep apnea surgery for those whose symptoms are best treated with more aggressive methods.

Drs. Ford, Guter and Gray encourage patients who think they may have sleep apnea in Virginia Beach, VA, to schedule a consultation. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring and daytime sleepiness, even after seemingly receiving an adequate amount of nighttime sleep. Depending on the cause and severity of symptoms, Drs. Ford, Guter and Gray may recommend that patients wear specially designed sleep devices or make certain lifestyle changes to reduce their symptoms. In more severe or complex cases, sleep apnea surgery may be required in order to open up the patient’s airway and allow them to receive enough oxygen to support healthy nighttime sleep patterns.

Sleep apnea surgery is also referred to as orthognathic surgery, and is performed when the jaw is not properly aligned and the teeth do not line up as they should when the mouth is closed. A side effect of a misaligned jaw is the inability to maintain an open airway while lying down. This can make it difficult to breathe properly and can lead to inadequate nighttime sleep. Drs. Ford, Guter and Gray can correct the condition by performing jaw correction surgery in the Tidewater area.

Patients suffering from symptoms of sleep apnea in Virginia Beach, VA, including chronic drowsiness and snoring, are urged to receive treatment in order to improve their quality of life. Those who do not seek treatment for their symptoms could be at a higher risk of stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure and heart failure. Patients can schedule a consultation with Drs. Ford, Guter or Gray by calling their practice in Virginia Beach, VA.
