Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway that causes persistent breathing interruptions during sleep. This can be caused by weak or abnormal pharyngeal tissues. OSA is becoming increasingly acknowledged as an independent risk factor for other health related problems such as hypoxemia, hypertension, stroke and cardiac diseases.
If sleep apnea is negatively affecting your quality of life, contact Desired Sleep to learn more about all of your options.
The consequences of snoring vary from no symptoms to severe sleep disturbances with detrimental consequences. Snoring is a common symptom of OSA. Not all people who snore have OSA, however almost everyone with OSA snores.
Desired Sleep has a 5 step care process to help manage sleep disorders which consists of an initial screening, a home sleep study, a medical diagnosis from your doctor, followed by treatment and consistent monitoring.
There are many treatment options for those who suffer from snoring or sleep apnea. Let’s help you discover what is best for you.
Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT)
Oral Appliance Therapy is one of the most common treatment options for snorers. An OAT custom-fit mouth guard can help a patient dramatically reduce and even eliminate snoring. By holding the jaw in an ideal position, the mouthpiece helps expand the upper airway and allows for smoother breathing.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
A CPAP ventilator is a device that administers mild air pressure continuously to keep the airways open in people who have trouble breathing on their own. CPAP machines can remarkably improve the quality of life and sleep for people with moderate to severe OSA.
Surgery will only be recommended as a final attempt to reduce the excessive soft tissue causing severe OSA when the Oral Appliance Therapy did not provide a solution to your sleep disorder. There are different types of surgeries available to treat sleep disorders, including Tonsil and Adenoid surgeries, palatal implants, Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), and Laser Assisted Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (LA UPPP).
