Sleep Apnoea Treatment

Here at Albany Dental, we provide effective sleep apnea treatment from our Gosford dental clinic. If you’ve noticed you’re having difficulty sleeping, there’s a chance you may be experiencing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

OSA can affect people of all ages and typically causes you to develop snoring issues and struggle for energy throughout the day. This condition can severely impact your health and quality of life and should be taken seriously.

How can a dentist help? Sleep apnea can have big implications on your teeth, including gum disease or worn, cracked or broken teeth. This is because sleep apnea patients tend to breath through their mouth while sleeping, which can cause dry mouth and cause tooth decay, gingivitis, mouth sores and more.

If left untreated, it can increase your risk of general health problems.

Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sick and tired of being kicked out of the bedroom for loud snoring? Albany Dental provides specialist sleep apnea treatment to get you off of the couch and back into bed. Allow us to work alongside you to establish a detailed report of your symptoms through comprehensive discussion and testing.

Our professional team can devise a treatment plan tailored to your condition, requirements, and budget.

Early detection and correction of OSA is essential in preventing further health issues such as:

Reliable CPAP Alternative

If you have previously been diagnosed and treated for obstructive sleep apnea, your medical provider may have issued you with a CPAP machine. While CPAP machines are commended for their effective treatment of OSA, many patients struggle to use them regularly, limiting the devices’ efficiency.

If you are having difficulty using your CPAP machine as often as advised, please feel free to reach out to the team at Albany Dental. We can offer various alternatives such as mouthguards or other anti-snoring appliances, working together with your doctor and your sleep physician to find a suitable solution.

We also provide general dental treatments to restore the condition of your teeth as a result of sleep apnea. For more information regarding sleep apnea treatments or our other dental services, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 02 4324 1181.

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

The most common sleep related breathing disorder (Otherwise known as Obstructive sleep apnea or OSA) is when the muscles supporting your tongue and soft palate relax, it causes the upper airway to close while sleeping.

It is not uncommon for someone to experience dozens, if not hundreds, of breath-holding (apnea) and restricted breathing (hypopnea) events through the night.

As each episode occurs, the body is deprived of oxygen and carbon dioxide increases in the blood. In response to the buildup of carbon dioxide, the brain rouses the body to resume breathing – hence the sleep disturbance.

Not everyone with snoring issues has OSA. However, suppose you are experiencing other symptoms such as insomnia, hypersomnia, headaches, or thunderous snoring. In that case, we advise that you contact our team at Albany Dental for a consultation.
