Sleep Apnea Treatment
Just for a moment, perhaps a minute - maybe longer you stop breathing while you are sleeping. This can happen several times, even hundreds of times during the night. You wake up feeling tired and unrested. This is sleep apnea. You may be unaware that you are experiencing this problem since it does not always wake you from your sleep. If your bed partner complains of loud snoring or nudges you through the night because you have stopped breathing, it is time to see a professional.
Getting the proper diagnosis is the first step in treatment. The Central Park South TMJ Center is staffed by professionals who take the time to listen to your concerns and carefully diagnose your problem. If sleep apnea is suspected, you will need to participate in a sleep study. With that information in hand, The Central Park South TMJ Center team will work with you to find the treatment best suited for your particular situation. You may need an oral appliance or a positive airway pressure device. There are several methods of treatment for sleep apnea. The type prescribed for you will depend on the findings of your sleep study.
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)
- Sleep Studies
- Sleep Apnea Symptoms
- Sleep Apnea Causes
- Sleep Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
- Snoring and Sleep Apnea
