Conditions we regularly diagnose and treat
Is obstructive sleep apnea common? If so, what is it?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep apnea, and it occurs when the airway becomes obstructed, resulting in a lack of air movement and patients suddenly waking and gasping for air. Millions of Americans suffer from it, and it can happen countless times throughout the night, increasing the risk for serious health conditions.
Which treatment options are available for sleep apnea?
There are several ways we can treat sleep apnea. These include:
- CPAP Therapy – Continuous positive airway pressure therapy is the most popular method of treatment for sleep apnea, as it is known to have proven results. It does use a machine and facial mask that pushes air into the airway to keep soft tissues from collapsing throughout the night. This makes it easier to breathe; however, its bulkiness and discomfort can be troublesome for some.
- Oral appliance therapy – Customized to fit each person’s mouth accordingly, oral appliance therapy relies on a device that is worn in the mouth and gently shifts the jaw forward. As a result, it prevents any obstruction to the airway, allowing air to flow freely.
- Surgery – It is unlikely that we will ever recommend a surgical option to treat sleep apnea; however, if all other treatment options prove unsuccessful, it may be the necessary next step.
What is the reason people snore?
To understand how snoring is treated, you must first know why it occurs in the first place. The explanation is simple: When the nasal or throat cavity is obstructed by relaxed throat muscles or the tongue, it makes it difficult for air to pass through, resulting in vibrations that produce a loud noise. This can disrupt your or your partner’s sleep patterns, which can lead to increased daily fatigue.
How can oral appliances treat sleep apnea/snoring?
The use of an oral appliance makes it possible to treat sleep apnea and/or snoring by moving your jaw slightly forward so that the soft tissues inside your mouth (i.e., throat muscles and nearby tissues) do not collapse onto your airway. This makes it possible for air to flow freely throughout the night so that you can get the sleep you need.
Are there other sleep disorders that are as common as sleep apnea?
Yes, there are many different types of sleep disorders, some of which include narcolepsy, insomnia, nocturia, and restless leg syndrome. To learn about the various kinds and how we aim to treat them, make sure to click the following link.
What can I expect during my initial visit?
Your first appointment will involve a careful evaluation and thorough consultation. A member of our highly skilled team will review your medical history and discuss whether any family members have suffered similar symptoms or conditions. We’ll also take digital images of your oral and facial structures to determine if there are any narrow airways or obstructions. Once we can identify the symptoms of your sleep issue, we will direct you to specialists within our office who will provide more thorough treatment. Should we discover that sleep apnea may be the culprit, you can expect to be recommended for an in-house or at-home sleep study.
