Treatment for sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts while you sleep. This can occur due to excessive relaxation of the muscles in the throat, which can block the airway.

Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, frequent awakenings during the night, daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, among others.

Treatment for sleep apnea may include lifestyle changes, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy devices, surgery, and more.

Orthodontics can correct the alignment of the teeth and jaw, which can improve the airway and reduce snoring in some patients.

In addition, orthodontics can help reduce stress on the jaw and temporomandibular joints, which can improve sleep comfort and reduce pain and inflammation in the jaw and neck.

It is important to note that orthodontia alone is not a treatment for sleep apnea, and patients who suspect they have sleep apnea should speak with a sleep medicine specialist to determine the best treatment plan for their situation. specific.
