Looking for Sleep Apnea treatment in Adelaide?

Sleep apnoea is a disruptive and potentially serious disorder which affects breathing during sleep. At City Central Dental, we offer treatment for this condition to allow you to achieve a full, restful night of sleep once again.

WHAT IS SLEEP APNOEA?

Sleep apnoea – also known as obstructive sleep apnoea or OSA – is a condition where breathing momentarily stops during sleep, causing the sufferer to suddenly wake up from deep sleep to restore their breathing. This pattern can be repeated many times each night resulting in very fragmented sleep which can cause daytime fatigue and difficulties with concentration.

WHAT CAUSES OSA?

OSA happens because the muscles in the throat relax during sleep and reduce the intake of oxygen. The most common cause of this in adults is obesity or excess weight blocking the airway. Other risk factors include anatomical features such as a narrow throat or thick neck muscles, some allergies, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. In children, the condition is most likely to be caused by enlarged tonsils or a significant overbite.

WHAT ARE MY SLEEP APNOEA TREATMENT OPTIONS?

The team at City Central Dental can offer you a number of different treatment options to treat your sleep apnoea and help restore your sleep pattern. These oral appliances look similar to a mouth guard but are designed to open up your airways during sleep to reduce obstruction. These are ideal for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnoea or snoring issues.
