Burke dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban utilizes WatchPAT™, a noninvasive and incredibly accurate device for diagnosing sleep apnea. WatchPAT is worn around the wrist and uses finger-mounted probes to detect subtle changes in the autonomic nervous system during sleep. Not only is this process much more comfortable than other diagnostic methods, it is performed in your own home where your sleep patterns are more likely to be natural. This provides us with raw data about what is actually happening under your normal sleeping circumstances, better enabling us to find the right treatment for your condition.
If you believe you are suffering from sleep apnea, please call our Burke, Virginia office at 703-323-8200 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Marzban.
Why Treat Sleep Apnea?
Left untreated, sleep apnea can result in discomforts such as frequent morning headaches, excessive daytime fatigue, and a general feeling of restlessness. What’s more, sleep apnea can cause memory problems, uncontrollable mood swings, extreme depression, and heightened anxiety. In some cases, this condition can also increase risks for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and coronary artery disease.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of sleep apnea, please contact Pamela Marzban, DDS to schedule a treatment consultation today. Dr. Marzban serves all of Fairfax County from our office in Burke.
