Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

There are a number of options for helping prevent or stop snoring and other symptoms of sleep apnea.  Treatment depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the patient’s symptoms, his or her medical and health history, and the cause(s) of his or her apnea.  Dr. Beshar provides the following sleep apnea treatments for patients in Manhattan, NYC and outlying communities.  Contact our office today for more information on our services.

Positional therapy – Pillows and other props (positional therapy) can be an effective solution for mild sleep apnea, since the props help patients sleep in positions that can stop snoring.  The props help prevent the tongue, airway muscles, tonsils, and other tissues from blocking the breathing airway during sleep.

Appliance therapy for snoring and sleep apnea – Small dental appliances worn in the mouth while sleeping help keep the breathing airway open.  The appliances push the lower jaw forward and/or prevent the tongue from falling over the airway, thus helping prevent snoring.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure – Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) involves blowing gently pressurized air through the breathing passages.  The treatment expands the airways and can prevent snoring and apneas.  CPAP is usually reserved for moderate or severe cases of sleep apnea.

Weight loss and other lifestyle changes – Being overweight, and consuming alcohol and certain medications, can cause or worsen sleep apnea symptoms.  Accordingly, certain lifestyle changes, including losing weight, can minimize sleep apnea symptoms and help patients stop snoring.

Sleep apnea surgery – In severe sleep apnea cases, surgery may be an effective way to open the breathing passages and prevent snoring.  Sleep apnea surgery involves removing tissue from the airways and/or securing it with small polyester rods, thus preventing obstructions.
