Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

There are a number of ways that sleep apnea can be treated, and no single solution is right for all patients. Your sleep apnea may be treated with the use of a CPAP machine, lifestyle changes, through surgery, or by using an oral appliance to open up the blocked airways. Lifestyle changes may be sufficient to help some with milder cases of sleep apnea, but more acute cases will often require medical involvement provided here at the Dental Sleep Center of Wellington.

Oral Appliances

Oral appliance therapy is a proven and highly effective treatment method for many sleep apnea cases, with success rates as high as 90%. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, oral appliances are now considered as the first and foremost treatment for mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. An oral appliance is a small, custom-made mouthpiece that fits comfortably into the patient’s mouth, and allows the patient’s airways to remain open while sleeping.

CPAP Therapy

The most commonly prescribed device for the treatment of sleep apnea is the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. This high-tech device can improve your quality of life and boost your overall health. The CPAP does all of the work while you sleep by increasing air pressure in your throat so that your airway remains open and unobstructed as you inhale. CPAP therapy is typically offered to patients who require a more advanced treatment method than oral appliances.
