Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Sleep apnea is a sleep-related disorder that affects how well you breathe at night. For patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, we offer a simple oral device that helps to open up the airway. This makes it easier for you to breathe, which results in a more restful night of sleep. You will even find that treating your sleep apnea help to reduce and eliminate loud snoring.

Why might Sleep Apnea Treatment be needed?

Sleep apnea can get in the way of you living your best life. You might feel exhausted no matter how much you sleep. You may find that you continually get up throughout the night gasping for breath. Patients with sleep apnea may even experience loud, disruptive snoring and bruxism (teeth grinding) while they’re asleep.

Who is a candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea can benefit from the treatment option we offer. When most people think of sleep apnea treatment, they automatically picture a CPAP machine. If your sleep apnea isn’t severe enough to warrant a CPAP machine, you will more than likely benefit from having this type of oral device made for you. We will review your health history to determine if this treatment option is right for you.

What can be expected during Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Sleep apnea treatment begins with a consultation so that we can get you and your unique needs. We then take impressions of your mouth and teeth to make a new oral appliance. The appliance is fitted so that it is comfortable and effective. This appliance works by keeping the airway open so that it is easier for you to breathe throughout the night. You should wear the device every time you go to sleep in order to effectively treat your sleep apnea. We can replace the device as it begins to show signs of disrepair and damage.

If you suffer from sleep apnea and are looking for a convenient treatment option, call us today so that we can get you into our office for a consultation.
