Sleep Apnea Treatment in Carindale
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes a person to stop breathing temporarily while sleeping, then jolting them awake to gasp for breath. It can be quite trying on the patient, as it makes it incredibly difficult to get a complete, restful night’s sleep. It can be disruptive to your partner’s sleep as well. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to remedy the condition.
Treating Sleep Apnea without a CPAP Machine
While the traditional treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine – a device that helps to regulate breathing to keep it smooth and even throughout the night – you do have other options available to you.
In some cases, sleep apnea can be the result of imbalances or misalignment in the mouth. If this is the case for you, our dentists here at 1300SMILES Carindale may be able to correct any anomalies in your mouth to help bring everything back into proper alignment. Once your teeth and jaws are properly aligned, you may find that your sleep apnea problems have gone away as well. If you are still struggling with sleep apnea after dental treatment, we can refer you to a specialist who can assist you in getting fitted for a CPAP machine if needed.
