Sleep Apnea Treatment at Boileau Dental Care: Improve Your Sleep and Quality of Life

At Boileau Dental Care in Edmonton, we recognize the significant impact that sleep apnea can have on your health and well-being. Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breathing during sleep, leading to disrupted sleep patterns and a range of health complications. Fortunately, our experienced team is here to provide comprehensive sleep apnea treatment tailored to your specific needs, helping you achieve restful sleep and improve your overall quality of life.

Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that affects millions of people worldwide. There are two main types of sleep apnea:

 

  1. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): This is the most common form of sleep apnea and occurs when the muscles in the throat relax too much, causing the airway to become blocked during sleep.
  2. Central Sleep Apnea (CSA): This type of sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to send the proper signals to the muscles that control breathing during sleep.

Regardless of the type, untreated sleep apnea can lead to a variety of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.

Our Approach to Sleep Apnea Treatment

At Boileau Dental Care, we take a comprehensive approach to sleep apnea treatment, focusing on addressing the underlying causes of your condition and improving your overall sleep quality.

 

Comprehensive Evaluation: Your sleep apnea treatment journey begins with a thorough evaluation by one of our experienced dentists. During this assessment, we’ll review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a comprehensive examination to determine the severity of your sleep apnea.

 

Customized Treatment Plan: Based on our evaluation findings, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and preferences. Your treatment plan may include a combination of conservative therapies and advanced interventions to effectively manage your sleep apnea and improve your sleep quality.

 

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy: CPAP therapy is a common treatment for sleep apnea that involves wearing a mask connected to a machine that delivers a continuous flow of air to keep your airway open during sleep.

 

Oral Appliance Therapy: For patients who are unable to tolerate CPAP therapy or prefer a less invasive treatment option, oral appliance therapy may be recommended. These custom-made oral appliances are designed to reposition the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep, reducing the severity of sleep apnea symptoms.

 

Lifestyle Modifications: In addition to medical treatments, we’ll also work with you to implement lifestyle modifications that can help improve your sleep quality, such as maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime, and practicing good sleep hygiene habits.

 

Ongoing Support: Our team is committed to providing ongoing support and monitoring to ensure that your sleep apnea is effectively managed and that you experience improved sleep quality and overall well-being.
