If you’re worried about OSA, speak to the experts at TLC Dental Clinic. We can establish if this is an issue for you and treat it effectively. Early intervention may include recommendations in relation to diet, exercise, and better sleeping positions. If problems persist, we may consider Continuous Positive Airways Pressure (CPAP) for patients with moderate to severe OSA.
CPAP is the standard and most effective treatment for OSA. It involves wearing a mask to bed with air pumped through a tube to keep the airway open. It is, however, often hard to tolerate, and patients may prefer undergoing a surgical procedure instead.
Oral appliances can also be used to combat OSA. At TLC Dental Clinic, we can create custom-made appliances that are perfectly fitted for our patients.
