What should I do to get treatment for my Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

What should I do to get treatment for my Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

To effectively address your obstructive sleep apnea issue, you may need to undergo either a Level 1 PSG study with an ENT specialist or a Level 3 Sleep Study using a home monitoring device to determine the specific condition and manage it accordingly.



Only after a proper diagnosis is obtained can the dentist help you choose the most effective device in preventing your tongue from blocking the air passage. These dental devices are easy to wear and are gentle, and are a good alternative to patients who want to avoid surgery.

Prolonged sleep apnea without seeking treatment could lead to a number of health problems including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, irregular heartbeat and heart attack, diabetes, depression and more.


What oral devices are available for treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

Here are some common oral appliances used in dental sleep medicine:

1. Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs): These devices reposition the lower jaw forward to help prevent airway obstruction during sleep.

2. Tongue Retaining Devices (TRDs): These devices hold the tongue in a forward position to keep the airway open and prevent snoring or sleep apnea.

3. Hybrid Oral Appliances: These devices combine features of both MADs and TRDs to provide a customized solution for individual patients based on their specific needs. It’s important to consult with a dentist or sleep specialist to determine the most suitable device for your condition.


At Cluny Court Family Dental, we predominantly utilise the Somnodent Fusion Flex and Avant devices for our patients as they are some one of most comfortable and easiest devices to calibrate.

Her goal for every child is to make their visit fun and relaxed. She feels most fulfilled when her patients have healthy, cavity free teeth, as she believes this will provide them a strong springboard to continue to care for their oral health into adulthood and old age. After all, eating is one of the greatest pleasures in life! She takes a holistic approach to dental care, as she appreciates the nuances in treatment options depending on a child’s overall health, development, behaviour, and social factors.
