The Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Get Proper Sleep

Without treatment, low-quality sleep can cause things like irritability, problems focusing, or even drowsiness when driving. But with proper sleep apnea treatment, you’ll be able to sleep properly again. You’ll feel rested after just 7-8 hours of sleep.

Improve Your Health

Sleep apnea treatment helps reduce your risk of health conditions like headaches, diabetes, heart attack and stroke, and more. You’ll be able to breathe properly and without interruptions at night, which is great for your overall health.

Feel More Energetic

Sleep apnea treatment helps you feel more energetic and get through the day more easily. It will be easier to do things like exercise and lose weight. Proper treatment may also help restore your libido and improve intimacy, since sleep apnea is often associated with low sex drive.

The Sleep Apnea Treatment Process

Sleep Test And Diagnosis

First you will need to have a sleep apnea test for a diagnosis. An at home sleep apnea test is a comfortable screening tool that will help your doctor diagnose you.  A small device worn while sleeping in the comfort of your home will record information about your sleep health for your doctor to evaluate.

Treatment Discussion

Depending on your condition, your treatment recommendations may differ. Patients with minor apnea may just need a special retainer from a dentist, while those with more serious apnea may need treatment like a CPAP, or even oral surgery to remove some oral tissue. Your physician will review your sleep test results and make the appropriate recommendation.

Frequently Asked Questions

CPAP is short for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This is a type of machine that pumps a steady, gentle stream of pressurized air into your airway through a face mask. This stream prevents your airway tissue from collapsing, which prevents sleep apnea. CPAPs are usually recommended for patients with more severe apnea.

Your sleep specialist and your dentist may make some lifestyle recommendations to help with sleep apnea. These may include quitting smoking, exercising, losing weight, avoiding drugs and alcohol (especially before bed), and sleeping on your side, rather than on your back or your stomach.

Oral Appliance Therapy, or OAT for short, uses a special mouthguard. This mouthguard changes the position of your jaw when you sleep, which prevents oral tissue from sagging into your airway. This means that your breathing won’t be interrupted at night. OAT is ideal for patients with minor-to-moderate apnea.
