What is the Sleep Clinic?

Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea can often be treated by a licensed dental sleep medicine dentist who may be the first to detect this disorder.

Several studies have shown that people with sleep apnea also often experience significant tooth wear and bruxism.

Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. It is best to consult a professional to analyze your situation and establish an appropriate treatment.

Treatment for sleep apnea

We can apply two treatments to treat sleep apnea:

– Mandibular advancement device (MAD): It is a treatment for mild and moderate cases and for patients who reject CPAP therapy if indicated by their doctor. It is an intraoral device composed of two splints made to measure for each patient who is placed to sleep. Through this device, it favors the advancement of the jaw to facilitate breathing.

– CPAP device: It is an air compressor that is placed with a flexible tube and a mask. It is used for the most severe cases of sleep apnea. This apparatus provides oxygen constantly and this forces the airways to remain open.

– Surgery: Surgery would be applied in those cases in which the previous treatments are not effective in improving obstructive sleep apnea. It would be in very serious cases. In this surgery, the tissue that is obstructing the airways is removed and, where appropriate, mandibular or bimaxillary advancement is made through orthognathic surgery.

At the first symptoms, the best thing to do is to go to the dentist so that he can assess your situation and advise the best treatment according to your needs. Lack of sleep or inefficient sleep can affect our day to day, having a worse quality of life, can develop high blood pressure, type II diabetes and depression. For this reason, it is important to detect these respiratory disorders once they present any related symptoms.
