Sleep Apnea Airway Evaluation
Do I have sleep apnea?
The gold standard for diagnosing sleep apnea is through a sleep study. However, airway evaluation is completed for every patient at their first consultation. Dr. Patiño visually inspects the oropharynx and evaluates the size of the palatine tonsils, ask about symptoms associate with sleep apnea, and uses our 3D CBCT images to visualize it. If there are significant findings, Dr. Patiño will refer you to have an evaluation with ENT.
