The Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment

Get Proper Sleep

Without treatment, low-quality sleep can cause things like irritability, problems focusing, or even drowsiness when driving. But with proper sleep apnea treatment, you’ll be able to sleep properly again. You’ll feel rested after just 7-8 hours of sleep.

Improve Your Health

Sleep apnea treatment helps reduce your risk of health conditions like headaches, diabetes, heart attack and stroke, and more. You’ll be able to breathe properly and without interruptions at night, which is great for your overall health.

Feel More Energetic

Sleep apnea treatment can enhance your daily functioning by improving your quality of sleep. With better rest, you'll experience increased vitality and energy, allowing you to live life to the fullest without having to endure chronic exhaustion.

Comprehensive Sleep Analysis

At Everyday Orthodontics, we look at the whole picture by taking a comprehensive analysis of the airway, bite, and jaws. This is essential in understanding and treating sleep apnea, as these factors play a crucial role in maintaining proper breathing and sleep.

Network of Local Specialists

We work with a network of local specialists to help treat and diagnose patients with sleep apnea.

Sleep Better, Live Better with Jaw Repositioning Techniques

Sleep apnea often happens because of jaw misalignment issues. Our skilled team is experienced in the use of mandibular advancement devices. These special devices can help move your bottom jaw forward to open your airway and get you back to breathing easier.

The Sleep Apnea Treatment Process

Sleep Test And Diagnosis

First, you’ll need to see a sleep specialist for a diagnosis. You will undergo a sleep study, where you’ll stay the night at a special lab or bring home an at-home test. Your sleep specialist will use this information to diagnose you.

Treatment Discussion

Depending on your condition, your treatment recommendations may differ. Patients with minor apnea may just need an oral appliance from your orthodontist, while those with more serious apnea may need treatment like a CPAP, or sometimes surgery to correct the jaw position. Your sleep specialist will make the appropriate recommendation.

Get Help From Your Orthodontist

If your sleep specialist recommends an oral appliance, orthodontics, or oral surgery, our team is here to help. We will work closely with you and your sleep specialist to help you control and manage your apnea.

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How Does Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) Work?

Oral Appliance Therapy, or OAT for short, uses a special mouthguard. This mouthguard changes the position of your jaw when you sleep, which prevents oral tissue from sagging into your airway. This means that your breathing won’t be interrupted at night. OAT is ideal for patients with minor-to-moderate apnea.

What Else Can I Do To Treat Sleep Apnea?

Your sleep specialist and your orthodontist may make some lifestyle recommendations to help with sleep apnea. These may include quitting smoking, exercising, losing weight, avoiding alcohol (especially before bed), and sleeping on your side, rather than on your back or your stomach.

What Is A CPAP?

CPAP is short for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This is a type of machine that pumps a steady, gentle stream of pressurized air into your airway through a face mask. This stream prevents your airway tissue from collapsing, which prevents sleep apnea. CPAPs are usually recommended for patients with more severe apnea.
