1 in 5 adults in this country are currently suffering from sleep apnea. Chances are if you don’t suffer from sleep apnea, you are still effected by it in some way either via a spouse or family member. If not treated properly, and correctly, it can lead to a wide-range of long-term health consequences including stroke, heart disease, depression, and even death. It can even take away 15 years of your life.
While there might not be a way to fully cure sleep apnea, there are ways to effectively treat it. Here are some of the more common treatments that we offer:
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
The most common way to treat sleep apnea is with a CPAP machine. CPAP machines send a constant flow of airway pressure to your throat through a mask to keep your airway open and stop pauses in your breath while you sleep.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a mouth guard or retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position, maintaining an open upper airway. It is a custom, easy to wear, and comfortable alternative to CPAP devices.
