Sleep Apnea Treatment – Airway
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
If you have sleep apnea, you already know the problems that come along with the disorder. Not only do you feel exhausted and lethargic throughout the day, but you may feel depressed and overly anxious because of your sleeping problems. Sleep apnea affects the way that you breathe throughout the night, causing you to wake up regularly because the upper airway is being obstructed. Rather than use a bulky and uncomfortable CPAP machine, many of our patients benefit from a simple oral device that’s worn at night.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment needed?
If left untreated, sleep apnea symptoms can continue, and you may experience other health problems as a result of the disorder. Because you’re unable to get a full night of rest with sleep apnea, it can have an impact on every part of your waking life. Treatment is needed to effectively put an end to these symptoms, so that you can get back to your family. If you’ve been putting off treatment because you don’t want to use a CPAP machine at night, we offer a simple device that is worn similarly to a mouth guard.

Who’s a good candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Dr. Joita Ghosh will perform an examination prior to any treatment being administered. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, you’re probably a good candidate for this oral device. The appliance is made just for you, so it’ll fit comfortably and easily. To ensure the fit stays perfect, the appliance can be remade at any time if it shows signs of wear and tear.
What can you expect with Sleep Apnea Treatment?
We begin the process by taking impressions of your teeth and mouth. These will be used to create a device you’ll need to wear to effectively treat the sleep apnea. If the appliance needs to be adjusted, this will be done at your appointment to get the device fitted properly. You should wear it each night, as it helps to keep the upper airway open, allowing you can breathe easier. With regular wear, the oral device is effective in treating your sleep apnea symptoms.
