Sleep apnea treatment

Sleep apnea treatment

If you or a loved one snores, the problem can be more than just a social embarrassment. It could mean that they suffer from a disruptive condition known as Sleep Apnoea .

Historically those who were afflicted with the condition were left to live out their restless lives without a snoring treatment solution. Some holistic dentistry clinics today have snoring treatment solutions that can help alleviate some if not all of the symptoms and let you sleep deeply and peacefully through the night.

Dental Devices

Holistic Dentistry Sydney

For mild to moderate sleep apnoeics, treatment for sleep Apnoea may be a dental device such as a mandibular advancement device/splint (MAD or MAS). Dental devices are most effective for treating mild to moderate sleep Apnoea. They work to open your airway by bringing your lower jaw, tongue and associated soft tissue forward during sleep, this appliances maintains the patency of your airway and thus greatly reduces or eliminates the snoring and apnoeic events.

When considering this form of snoring/sleep apnoea treatment it is very important to get a consultation and be fitted in an accredited dental clinic with advanced training in sleep apnoea, and to return for regular visits to prevent any dental problems from occur. The appliances may also need periodical adjustment to help secure a better fit and ensure optimal efficiency.

About CPAP

For the severe sleep apnoeic, the most common current sleep Apnoea treatment, CPAP (or Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure), is a device that involves a mask, tubes and a fan.

The devise uses air pressure to maintain a patent airway whereby the continuous motion enables air to pass unobstructed through your airway, resulting in diminished snoring and helping to stop interruptions to your sleep.CPAP therapy offers a considerable boost to energy levels in the day for most patients, while also boosting their overall health.

For the most effective treatment, your CPAP device must be used whenever you sleep, even for short naps. While CPAP will not totally cure you, this non-invasive form of therapy is a safe and effective snoring treatment. New CPAP devices are lighter, quieter, and more enjoyable to use, so if you’ve previously tried a machine in the past but gave up on treatment due to discomfort, call us to see what advancements have been made.
