Can sleep apnea be cured?

Sleep apnea is not typically curable, but you can take measures to eliminate or treat the symptoms. For example, if your obstructive sleep apnea is aggravated by alcohol or stress, curbing your alcohol intake and seeking stress therapy may lessen your symptoms. In addition, if you’re obese, weight loss and a healthier lifestyle can help with sleep apnea symptoms.

We offer sleep apnea treatment in Mt. Pleasant, SC, to help you sleep safely and comfortably throughout the night.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea causes you to stop breathing several times during the night. This leads to daytime drowsiness, mood swings, and potentially dangerous health consequences, including hypertension, heart attack, and stroke.

The telltale sign of sleep apnea is snoring. However, if you live alone, you may not know you snore. For this reason, arranging a sleep apnea evaluation makes sense, especially if you notice daytime sleepiness, dry throat, and mood changes.

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Mt. Pleasant, SC

The most common sleep apnea therapy is the CPAP machine. But being cumbersome, the machine does not travel well, and some patients can’t get used to continuous air delivery.

Fortunately, there are alternative therapies like our custom appliance that fits over the teeth and keeps the airway open through the night.
