Untreated sleep apnea can create chronic issues related to sleep, as well as increase the risk of certain complications such as high blood pressure, stroke and heart attacks. Considering the impacts sleep apnea can have on one’s health, treatment is impartial. In some cases, the solution lies with your dentist. Distinctive Dental Solutions assists those with sleep apnea and helps them achieve better dental health and overall health. Here are a few possible treatments and what to expect as you work with our team.
Treatments vary depending on the cause and symptoms of your condition. Not all forms of sleep apnea have the same causes. Depending if your sleep apnea is due to a chronic health condition or a structural issue, you may need to try a specific treatment. For instance, sleep apnea may be caused by a problem relating to the central nervous system. In some individuals, it’s a result of being overweight, sleeping on their back and more. These factors are all very important in diagnosing your sleep apnea, as well as finding a solution that works. Our team will discuss your symptoms in-depth and ensure your needs are taken care of.
With several options available, it may be hard to pick one. Our team can help you find a suitable solution that works for your symptoms and level of disease. Sometimes, symptoms can be alleviated by lifestyle changes, oral appliances or a combination of both. An oral appliance often helps in the case of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which happens when the airway becomes blocked by the tongue and soft palate.
An oral appliance closely resembles a mouthguard used by athletes. It’s removable and easy to clean. Most importantly, many patients find relief as it’s highly effective for OSA. Here’s what to expect:
As you use your oral appliance, you’ll likely experience a full range of benefits:
Generally, many patients report success as they continue to use an oral appliance, making it one of the safest and most dependable treatments for OSA.
If you believe you may have OSA and are looking for a solution, contact our dental team to learn more about possible treatments.
