What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?

The goal of sleep apnea treatment is to maintain normal breathing while you are asleep. For obstructive sleep apnea (the most common form of sleep apnea), this means keeping the airway open. To figure out the best treatment method, sleep apnea testing needs to be performed, which can be done in-office or at home. Once it has been confirmed that you have sleep apnea, Dr. Salava can devise a personalized treatment based on your symptoms.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

You may have heard of CPAP therapy, which is the traditional method for treating sleep apnea. CPAP machines force air into your throat to prevent the airway from becoming blocked; unfortunately, not everyone can tolerate the noises they make. A sleep dentist can offer a much quieter and more comfortable solution: oral appliances. Wearing one keeps your lower jaw in a forward position so that your tongue and the soft tissues in the back of your throat are less likely to collapse and block the flow of air.
