Sleep Apnea Treatment

There are several reasons you might have occasional episodes of insomnia, from an uncomfortable mattress to difficulty disengaging from a stressful day. But if you rarely get a good night’s rest, you might have sleep apnea.

Fortunately, our South Elgin, IL dentists can help you get relief. They’ll do an exam, review your medical history, ask questions about your sleep habits, and perform a Mallampati test to measure the size of your airway. They can also work with a sleep doctor, if necessary. After you have been diagnosed, they’ll develop a custom sleep apnea treatment plan.

Treatment usually involves an oral appliance and/or a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. With sleep apnea treatment, you’ll:

  • Get a restful night’s sleep
  • Stop suffering from symptoms like dry mouth, sore throat, headaches, and irritability
  • Be more alert and function better throughout the day
  • Lessen the chances you’ll suffer from related problems such as high blood pressure

To schedule a sleep apnea consultation, call 630-883-0970.

Get Relief With Common Sleep Apnea Treatments: Oral Appliance & CPAP

Sleep apnea causes frequent pauses in breathing, which can make you feel fatigued the next day. Sleep apnea also has been linked to conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Depending on the severity of your condition and the type of sleep apnea you have, our dentists may recommend an oral appliance and/or a CPAP machine to relieve your symptoms. The appliance works by gently shifting your jaw into a position that keeps your airway open while you sleep. A CPAP machine works by blowing pressurized air through your airway so it won’t close.

While oral appliances work well for mild or moderate cases of sleep apnea, a CPAP machine may be a better choice if you have a more advanced case. Oral appliances are also good alternatives for people who can’t get used to wearing a CPAP machine, which includes a face mask.
