Sleep apnea treatment can consist of lifestyle changes, allergy treatment, or oral appliances. Lifestyle changes that can reduce sleep apnea include weight loss, quitting smoking, reducing pollen counts in the bedroom, or taking allergy medication.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Properly fitted dental appliances can treat sleep-disordered breathing including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Patients at PS Dental receive specially fitted oral appliances from Dr. Sepehri and come in for adjustments until they are having a comfortable night’s sleep.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP is a machine used for severe sleep apnea. The CPAP works to keep a patient’s upper airway passages open throughout the night, preventing apnea.
