Treatment for sleep disorders
After you have been examined by your dentist they may recommend you visit with a respiratory or sleep specialist depending on the severity of your condition. However, they may recommend certain sleep appliances like the CPAP which can alleviate your condition.
At Extreme Dentistry, we offer the CPAP appliance which is the most common medical treatment for sleep apnoea. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. This appliance works by wearing a mask over the nose which is connected to an air pressure hose which is adjusted to keep the airway open during sleep.
