Sleep Apnea Treatment
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that affects millions of people worldwide. There are many factors that can contribute to the condition, but it generally involves the soft tissues at the back of the throat collapsing over the airway. This causes a patient with sleep apnea to have short disruptions in their breathing at night. In order to correct the problem, we recommend wearing a sleep apnea oral device.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment needed?
If you don’t treat your sleep apnea, the condition can eventually affect every aspect of your life. You might be too tired to function during the day, which can get in the way of your career and family life. You might even be disruptive to your family, since the snoring can keep them up all throughout the night. The best way to improve the quality of your sleep and life is for you to wear a device each night that keeps the airway properly open.

Who is a candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
We can examine your mouth and throat area as well as talk about the symptoms you’re experiencing. We will review your health and medical history to determine if treatment is right for your needs. The treatment we have available is best for individuals who have mild to moderate sleep apnea symptoms. If you have more severe sleep apnea, it is typically best to seek out more aggressive treatment options.
What happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?
After Dr. Varadi reviews your sleep apnea history and sleep test results, he will make a digital scan of your teeth to fabricate a set of 3D virtual models that are sent electronically to the lab to make your custom sleep appliance. The sleep device works by gently holding your lower jaw forward to keep the airway open. The key to an effective yet comfortable experience is that ability to incrementally fine tune the appliance and Dr. Varadi will work with you for a quiet night of restorative sleep.
