Sleep Apnea and Snoring Devices

A practice dedicated to the developing science of airway health and the factors which lead to sleep problems in adult and child patients.

Sleep apnea is a dangerous medical condition because it can stop your breathing while you sleep. This can lead to several severe health issues.

Many people use CPAP machines to treat sleep apnea and snoring. However, they often find them very uncomfortable and often stop using them because they are very difficult to fall asleep with and cause irritation.

Our highly experienced dentist, Dr. Safavi, has been helping people with sleep apnea and snoring issues for many years. We will provide you with a unique treatment plan that will help you eliminate your snoring and sleep apnea once and for all.

What is Sleep Apnea and Snoring?

Snoring happens when air can’t flow properly through your mouth and nose during sleep, causing a loud, disturbing noise.

This problem frequently occurs due to weak muscles in the tongue and throat. The throat and soft tissue being too large can also cause it. Additionally, the soft palate and uvula being too long can contribute to this issue.

Sleep Apnea is a severe medical condition where breathing stops and starts repeatedly during sleep. Three types of sleep apnea conditions exist: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), and Mixed Sleep Apnea.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder where your throat muscles relax and block your airway while you are trying to sleep. Our expert dentist can treat OSA after studying your case thoroughly.

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) is a condition where your brain doesn’t send the proper signals to your muscles that control your breathing.

Mixed Sleep Apnea is a combination of both OSA and CSA.

Both conditions can significantly impact your sleep quality and overall health. Our highly experienced dentist can provide or educate you about various snoring and sleep apnea treatment options. The treatments include sleep apnea mouthpieces, inspire sleep apnea treatment, and QuietNite.

Sleep Apnea and Snoring Devices

We sometimes use snoring and sleep apnea devices for your sleep apnea treatment. These devices aim to keep your airway open during sleep and reduce breathing pauses caused by sleep apnea and snoring. These devices improve your sleep quality and reduce your overall daytime tiredness.

Types of Snoring and Sleep Apnea Devices

Dentists and sleep specialists use various dental appliances to treat Sleep Apnea and snoring based on your unique situation.

  1. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Devices: This is the most common treatment for mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The CPAP mask goes over your nose or mouth. It blows air gently to keep your airway open while you sleep. CPAP devices are usually very uncomfortable to wear, and most people stop using them altogether because of their discomfort.
  2. Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs): These sleep apnea mouth guard-like appliances maintain the lower jaw forward during sleep. This custom-fitted device helps keep your airway open, preventing snoring and sleep apnea.
  3. Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSDs): These keep your tongue in front of your airway to prevent it from blocking the airway by moving back.
  4. Nasal EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) Devices: These are small devices placed over your nostrils before sleep. They help in pressure setting the airway and keeping it open.

 

These devices can help with sleep apnea and snoring, improving sleep and health. Consult our highly experienced dentist at Aligned Healing to determine the most suitable device for your condition.

Choosing the Right Device For Your Snoring and Sleep Apnea Treatment!

Choosing the correct device to treat your snoring and sleep apnea can significantly impact your quality of sleep and overall quality of health. Here are some key factors to consider when selecting a device:

  1. Severity and Type of Sleep Apnea: The extent and kind of sleep apnea you have, whether Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), or Mixed Sleep Apnea, often dictate the device you need. People use CPAP sleep apnea machines for mild to moderate sleep apnea, but these devices are very uncomfortable to wear.
  2. Comfort and Fit: Comfort is crucial in maintaining compliance and ensuring consistent use of your device. It is very important to consider the fit and feel of the device, whether it’s a full-face mask, nasal mask, or oral appliance for sleep apnea. Remember, discomfort or annoyance will make a big difference in being able to consistently use your device.
  3. Lifestyle and Sleeping Habits: Your lifestyle and sleeping habits should also be considered. For example, a portable device might be best if you travel frequently. Additionally, your preferred sleep position—side, back, or stomach—can influence the type of device that will work best for you.
  4. Existing Health Conditions: Certain health conditions, such as respiratory or cardiac problems, might influence the type of device you can use.
  5. Budget: Finally, the cost of the device is a significant factor. Health insurance covers some devices but does not cover others. Compare costs and insurance coverage before making a decision.

To choose the suitable sleep device, consult our skilled dentist to ensure it suits your needs. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Safavi, can diagnose and guide treatment for your sleep problems. Sleep apnea can be dangerous; never take the risk by treating it yourself.
