Sleep Apnea Treatment for Better Health

Many patients who experience sleep apnea symptoms such as fatigue throughout the day, headaches upon waking, or falling asleep during waking hours can benefit from sleep apnea treatment. Making certain lifestyle changes and getting appropriate sleep apnea treatment can help you feel well-rested throughout the day and also ward off a number of health problems.

Signs Of Sleep Apnea

You may be diagnosed with one of two different types of sleep apnea: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or central sleep apnea (CSA). Some of the common symptoms of these conditions include:

  • Ongoing lack of quality sleep
  • Bouts of fatigue
  • Headaches upon waking
  • Drowsiness throughout the day
  • Loud snoring
  • Snorting or choking sounds

Are You At Risk?

Sleep apnea risk factors include being male, being overweight, and having a large neck size. If you have a family history of sleep apnea, you may be at risk for developing sleep apnea at some point in your lifetime. Patients with pre-existing conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), sinus issues, or any type of nasal obstructions are also at risk of developing sleep apnea at some point in their lifetime.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

Dr. Ariana may recommend wearing a mouthguard or other appliances to stop snoring and ward off the effects of sleep apnea. In many cases, lifestyle changes such as losing weight or changing sleeping positions can help. An oral device designed to improve breathing while sleeping may be worn every night to restore proper breathing patterns. Only some patients need to have surgery as part of their sleep apnea treatment plan. We can discuss all of the non-surgical and surgical sleep apnea treatment options during your consultation.
