Frequently Asked Questions
How do you stop sleep apnea symptoms?
For mild cases of obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Brown will recommend simple lifestyle changes to help alleviate symptoms, such as:
- Lose weight
- Exercise & eat a well-balanced diet
- Cut back on drinking alcohol
- Limit tobacco use
- Use a nasal decongestant or allergy medication at night
- Avoid sleeping on your back
If Dr. Brown notices you need additional treatment, she will recommend oral appliance therapy as a more comfortable alternative to CPAP.
Do dental devices for sleep apnea work?
Yes! An oral appliance custom-made by dentists can help move the lower jaw slightly forward to open up the airway for patients with sleep apnea. These dental devices are convenient, comfortable, and silent, which is known to be a more preferred method of treatment compared to CPAP.
