Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Are you struggling with sleep apnea and looking for effective solutions? At Blue Turtle Dental, we specialize in treating obstructive sleep apnea treatment in Redwood City and Palo Alto and helping you achieve a good night’s sleep.

Understanding the Causes of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can have various causes, including obesity, nasal congestion, and structural abnormalities. Generally speaking, the muscles that support the soft tissues in your mouth, including the tongue and the soft palate, relax obstructing the airway and leading to the narrowing or closing of the airway. This causes breathing to be cut off momentarily causing pauses in breathing. This causes you to rouse up several times from sleep and prevents you from getting a good night’s sleep.

Over time, this can affect your physical health, your productivity, and your mental health.

Our team of experienced dentists will thoroughly evaluate your condition to determine the underlying cause and develop a personalized treatment plan with the best sleep apnea solutions in Palo Alto and Redwood City.

We understand that comfort is crucial when it comes to using oral appliances for treating sleep apnea. That’s why we specialize in creating custom-made mandibular advancement devices that are designed to fit comfortably and effectively treat your condition.

Mandibular advancement devices are custom-made oral appliances that help to snore and sleep apnea by gently moving your lower jaw forward and preventing the soft tissues from obstructing your airways. They consist of moldable thermoplastic trays to comfortably fit your upper and lower teeth. They also come with hinges or elastic bands to control the level of adjustment of your lower jaws. Typically, the advancements happen in 1 mm increments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) are very effective for moderate to severe sleep apnea. They work by delivering air pressure, which is slightly higher than the surrounding air pressure, through a mask. The pressure keep your airways open and prevents sleep apnea and snoring. Although very effective, they can be tedious and uncomfortable to use.  In contrast, oral devices like the mandibular advancement devices, are easier to use and are usually highly effective for moderate sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea and snoring can result from obesity, nasal congestion or structural deformities. Milder cases of sleep apnea that result from obesity or smoking can be improved upon by lifestyle changes, such as weight loss or quit smoking. If nasal allergies are the cause for sleep apnea, then allergy treatments can alleviate symptoms. However, if lifestyle changes do not improve your symptoms, talk to our trained team for custom made mandibular advancement devices that can help you manage your sleep apnea.

There are over-the-counter (OTC) and custom oral devices to help with sleep apnea. generally speaking, there are three options available to you:

Boil and Bite Devices – These devices are available without prescription and are made of moldable upper and lower trays. Patients can self-customize the device by placing it in hot water and biting down to mold the trays to their dimensions, hence the name boil and bite.

Semi-custom Devices – You receive an at-home kit with instructions to take your dental impressions that you then send to the manufacturer who then creates a customized mouthpiece. However, if you need adjustments, you will have to request a new kit and go through the process again.

Custom Devices – Your dentist will take precise impressions of your upper and lower teeth and send them to the lab to create a complete custom mouthpiece. Since the impressions are taken by your dentists and adjustments are included, custom Mandibular Adjustment Devices (MADs) work the best for obstructive sleep apnea.

Insurance coverage for sleep apnea treatments varies by your insurance provider’s policies, your geographic location and your treatment prescription. However, generally speaking, most medical insurance covers sleep apnea oral treatment. Please check with your medical insurance and your dental insurance provider to get the details coverage.

At Blue Turtle Dental we also offer great financing options for dental procedures, including sleep apnea devices. Pleas ecall or text us at 650-503-6777 to discuss details.

For severe sleep apnea, there are surgical options that include tissue removal & shrinkage, jaw repositioning, implants placed into the soft tissue, nerve stimulation or creation of a new airway, also known as tracheostomy.
