Sleep Apnoea Treatment

Sleep Apnoea Treatment at Doncaster Dental

At Doncaster Dental, we recognise that snoring can sometimes be a sign of a more serious health issue: Sleep Apnoea. This condition occurs when a person experiences interrupted breathing during sleep due to partial or complete blockage of the airways. Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and even diabetes.

Understanding Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

  • Normally, air flows through the nose and mouth, past soft tissues at the back of the throat, and into the lungs.
  • For individuals with sleep apnoea, these soft tissues partially or completely collapse, obstructing the airway.
  • Common symptoms include excessive daytime tiredness, choking or gasping during sleep, sore throat upon waking, morning headaches, poor concentration, memory deterioration, decreased sex drive, and anxiety or depression.

Diagnosing and Treating Sleep Apnoea

Sleep Studies: To accurately diagnose sleep apnoea, we conduct sleep studies. Our visiting sleep physician assesses your symptoms and recommends appropriate treatment.

Treatment Options:

  • Oral Appliance Therapy: Custom-made oral appliances fit over your teeth and are worn during sleep. They help keep the airways open.
  • CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Machine: Designed to maintain open airways during sleep.
  • Surgery: Rarely recommended and considered a last resort for specific cases.
