If it is left undiagnosed or untreated, sleep apnea can cause a number of health problems and issues including heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. Bellevue dentist Dr. Lee and the team at Overlake Dental offer sleep apnea treatment options for patients diagnosed with this condition, and can put together a customized treatment plan to ensure you enjoy a higher quality of sleep.
Sleep apnea is a very disruptive and potentially dangerous condition that may require making lifestyle changes, using an oral device at night, or undergoing surgery.
Sleep Apnea Treatment Options
Dr. Lee will recommend a sleep apnea treatment plan based on the severity of the condition and the type of sleep apnea you have. If you are noticing signs and symptoms of sleep apnea, such as fatigue throughout the day, difficulty staying asleep, and headaches upon waking, you may have undiagnosed sleep apnea.
Our treatment options include using an oral device while sleeping, making lifestyle changes, and — in more severe cases — undergoing surgery. The oral device may be necessary to keep the airways open while sleeping. We offer this device as part of a sleep apnea treatment plan and can explain how it works in more detail during your visit.
