Sleep apnea shouldn’t have control over your quality of life. If you are suffering from sleep apnea, look no further. Our team is going to show you treatment options you can consider for your condition.

Have it be known, there are ways you can treat mild cases of sleep apnea right at home. Losing weight, avoiding sleeping pills or alcohol, changing the way you sleep or quitting smoking are beneficial behavior changes you can make to treat sleep apnea.

CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is a popular sleep apnea treatment used by thousands. This non-invasive treatment is a mask that covers your nose that supplies a continuous air stream through your nose to keep your airway open while you sleep. There are several different CPAP machines on the market today for you to choose from.

If you visit your dentist for sleep apnea, they may recommend a dental device to treat your condition. These devices are made specifically to keep the airway open while you sleep. Make sure your dentist has expertise in treating sleep apnea before making a decision.

Surgery is another option for those suffering from sleep apnea. These surgeries will only be used to treat sleep apnea if you have a deviated nasal septum, enlarged tonsils or a smaller jaw that is causing the throat to become too narrow. Consult with your doctor about your options.

If you are considering sleep apnea treatment, consider visiting your dentist or doctor. They will be able to help you have a better night’s sleep. Please give us a call today with any questions or concerns about dental sleep apnea treatment by calling 208-888-3311 .
