Sleep Apnea Treatment in Yardley

If you suffer from sleep apnea, it’s important to treat the issue. That’s because the condition can cause chronic sleep deprivation, and this can lead to fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating and other symptoms. Untreated sleep apnea can even increase your risk of developing heart disease. According to Sleepfoundation.org, the condition raises your risk of heart failure by 140%. This is one reason why you should strongly consider our sleep apnea treatment in Yardley.

Luckily, effectively treating your sleep apnea can dramatically reduce your risk of developing these complications. Furthermore, finding effective treatment could be as simple as going to the dentist. In fact, Yardley Dental Arts offers treatment for mild-moderate sleep apnea.

What Treatment Options are Available?

There are several ways that you can treat sleep apnea. However, the most popular treatment method is CPAP treatment. This therapy involves using a machine that creates positive pressure on the airways during sleep, and this helps to reduce the frequency and severity of obstructive apnea episodes. Luckily, we can prescribe CPAP machines that can offer effective treatment for sleep apnea sufferers.

However, sleep apnea can also be treated with surgery. Though, this is beyond the scope of practice for dentists. Furthermore, complications can be associated with surgical treatments for sleep apnea. However, CPAP machines are generally considered to be safe. Below is a comparison of surgical treatments for sleep apnea and treatment with a CPAP machine.

What Steps Can You Take to Improve the Effectiveness of Sleep Apnea Treatments?

There are a few things that you can do to improve the effectiveness of your sleep apnea treatment in Yardley. Here are a few tips that we recommend:

  1. Consider losing weight. Being overweight or obese can contribute to sleep apnea.
  2. Sleeping on your stomach or side can make episodes of sleep apnea less likely to occur.
  3. Quit smoking, and reduce your alcohol intake. Alcohol and nicotine can interfere with sleep, and this can make apnea episodes more likely to occur.
  4. Take up yoga and/or start an exercise routine. This can make it easier to lose weight. As a result, it can be very beneficial for sleep apnea sufferers.
