Sleep Apnea Treatment

Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT)

For mild SDB conditions, Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) can sometimes be used. This form of therapy involves the use of a specialised appliance, something like an orthodontic splint, custom-made by a specially trained dentist.

The splint (commonly known as a mandibular advancement splint or MAS) is designed to hold the mandible (lower jaw) and connected tissue forward and clear of the airway.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

Positive Airway Pressurisation (often referred to as continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP) is the gold standard for treatment of sleep apnea and is typically recommended for more serious sleep apnea conditions.

CPAP works by introducing gently pressurised air into the patient’s airway via a comfortable mask attached to a small pump. Positive airway pressurisation does not breathe for the patient – it simply acts as an ‘air splint’, which holds the soft tissue in position and stops it from collapsing and blocking the airway.

Some people dislike the idea of having to use CPAP and convince themselves they cannot tolerate it. Countless patients have now been successfully treated with airway pressurisation therapy – and few, if any, would choose to stop using this wonderfully effective treatment method.

If this form of treatment is prescribed, our highly experienced Sleep Therapists can take care of you in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Importantly, they will continue working with you until your breathing has been restored to normal, healthy patterns.

Ears Nose Throat Surgery (ENT)

In some cases, Ears Nose Throat (ENT) surgical intervention is required. However, this is generally considered a treatment of last resort because the procedures are painful, non-reversible, not always effective and may even prevent the effective use of other forms of treatment at a later date.

Typically, surgery will only be recommended if there are significant obstructions in the oral or nasal cavity, such as enlarged tonsils or turbinates in the nasal passages.

When this form of treatment is required, Sleep Clinic Services can refer you to an expert ENT surgeon who can help. Otherwise, contact your GP to discuss which option is most appropriate for you.
