Sleep & Snoring Treatment Center
Patients at the Snoring Treatment Center at Jordan Valley Medical Center can schedule an appointment with an ear, nose and throat specialist for a comprehensive evaluation. During the appointment, a thorough snoring history will be taken, as well as a complete examination of the nose, mouth, and throat areas.
Following this initial assessment, more tests may be suggested. If sleep apnea is a concern, a sleep study and referral to a sleep specialist may be necessary. Patients who participate in a sleep lab study will stay overnight in a hotel-like setting with comfortable beds and private bathrooms. A polysomnogram (PSG) is used to track brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle activity, heart rate and rhythm, breathing depth and blood oxygen saturation. This test is also available in the comfort of your home.
The best course of treatment depends on a patient’s diagnosis, so the initial assessment at the Snoring Treatment Center is important.
Our team of specialists include:
- Sleep Specialists
- Oral Surgeons

How Much Sleep is Enough?
Pediatric Sleep Medicine
For infants, young children and adolescents, sleep disorders are prevalent and affect approximately 30 percent of this age population. Poor or inadequate sleep can lead to mood swings, behavioral issues (such as hyperactivity or depression) and cognitive problems that may impact children’s learning abilities at school. If you have a child who has difficulty falling and staying asleep, contact us to find out if he/she may be suffering from a sleep disorder. We take the time to carefully diagnose your child’s condition, provide comprehensive and individualized treatment, and work closely with you on any necessary follow-up care. If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD, depression or a learning disorder, please consider whether their sleep is contributing to their outward clinical issues. All children with neuromuscular disorders or chromosomal abnormalities (Trisomy 21 etc.) should also be evaluated for sleep disorders.
