What are the available treatments for Sleep Apnea?
Once you have received a diagnosis for sleep apnea, Dr. Patel will provide you with a personalized treatment plan for your unique case. This may involve non-invasive treatment with our Fotona dental laser to gently tighten tissues in the throat and open the airways. We also offer custom-designed oral appliances, which keep your lower jaw and tissues in the right positioning to maintain an open airway during sleep. Minimally invasive and comfortable, these appliances are a good choice for treating mild to moderate OSA and an effective alternative for patients who are CPAP-intolerant.

With proper breathing restored during sleep, patients can receive the restful and rejuvenating sleep their body needs to be energized throughout the day and to maintaining good overall health and a healthy immune system. More than providing you with the necessary sleep quality, sleep apnea treatment helps ensure that your OSA does not cause long-term damage or affect your quality of life!
