Frequently Asked Questions
How do you fix sleep apnea?
For milder cases of obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Bayless will recommend lifestyle changes to help diminish symptoms. These simple changes may include:
- Losing weight
- Exercising regularly
- Minimizing the amount of alcohol you drink
- Limit tobacco use
- Use a nasal decongestant or allergy medication at night
- Sleep on your sides and avoid sleeping on your back
If these techniques don’t help your sleep disorder, we will provide you with an oral appliance to help.
Do dental devices for sleep apnea work?
An oral dental device is custom-made for patients with sleep apnea and helps to position the lower jaw slightly forward and down to open up the airway. These devices are simple, portable, and silent, being a more preferred method of treatment compared to CPAP.
You can speak with Dr. Bayless during a consultation so he can answer any questions you may have regarding oral appliance therapy before moving forward with treatment.
