Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle modifications are often the first step in managing sleep apnea. These may include weight loss, quitting smoking, and adopting positional therapy to reduce airway obstruction during sleep. Simple changes can have a significant impact on the severity of sleep apnea symptoms.

CPAP Therapy

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is a common and highly effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. This therapy involves wearing a mask connected to a machine that delivers a steady stream of air, keeping the airway open during sleep. CPAP therapy can significantly improve sleep quality and reduce daytime fatigue.

Custom Oral Appliances

Custom-made oral appliances are designed to reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. These devices are particularly useful for patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. At Thrive Dental & Orthodontics, we create personalized oral appliances that fit comfortably and effectively reduce apnea episodes.

Surgical Interventions

In severe cases where other treatments are ineffective, surgical options may be considered. Surgical interventions aim to remove or reduce tissue blocking the airway or correct anatomical abnormalities contributing to sleep apnea. Procedures can include uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), genioglossus advancement, or maxillomandibular advancement.
