TREATING SLEEP APNEA
When treating sleep apnea at our Scottsdale practice, we will look closely at the root cause of your sleep disorder as well as the various structures of your breathing passageways. No two patients are alike, so the treatment for your case of sleep apnea needs to be tailored to your situation. Dr. Batoon will go over these matters in great detail during your visit so you can make a well-informed decision.
Dr. Batoon explains the benefits of an oral appliance to treat sleep apnea in the video below:
CPAP MACHINE FOR SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT
The CPAP machine is one of the most well-known treatments for sleep apnea. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. When used, the CPAP machine will maintain continuous airflow in your breathing passageways while you sleep. The result will be a full night of uninterrupted rest.
SURGICAL TREATMENTS FOR SLEEP APNEA
There are a number of different surgical options for addressing sleep apnea, including nasal cavity surgery, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), mandibular maxillar advancement (MMA), and pillar palatal implants. These surgeries can correct a deviated septum, remove or alter obstructive soft tissues in the oral cavity, or even adjust the position of the upper and lower jaw to improve overall airflow.
DENTAL AND LIFESTYLE TREATMENTS FOR SLEEP APNEA
Non-invasive dental appliances can be used to help improve your breathing passageways. These dental appliances include the mandibular advancement device (MAD) and the tongue restraining device (TRD). Many times you will also be asked to make some behavioral changes to help reduce certain risk factors for sleep apnea as part of your treatment.
