Sleep Apnea Treatments

You may know a little about sleep apnea, the condition that refers to periods of stopped breathing during the night. You may even know someone with the condition, or be a sleep apnea sufferer yourself. Despite the dangers of this condition, the good news is that the treatments available for sleep apnea continue to improve as research and development progresses.

Treatment for Sleep Apnea
There are many treatments available today. The treatment that will offer the best results can vary greatly by patient. In many cases, it is a combination of treatments that offers relief. The treatment plans are created to meet each apnea patient's unique needs and based on their symptoms and medical history.

Therapy to encourage safe breathing may include:
  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device, or CPAP to regulate airflow
  • Behavioral or lifestyle changes, such as weight loss, exercise and diet
  • Surgery
  • Sleep habit changes
  • Medications
  • Dental appliances
  • And many others!

If you or someone you know suffers from sleep apnea, find out more about the latest treatments and therapies. Send me an e-mail for more information on current treatments available in sleep apnea dentistry.
