How to Treat Sleep Apnea

When you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, the soft tissues at the back of the mouth and throat will relax and droop when you sleep, blocking your airway. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this condition, but several sleep apnea treatments are available.

At Hudson Valley Sleep Solutions, an oral device will be specially designed to fit over your teeth and gently shift your lower jaw forward to keep the airway open as you sleep. This conservative, non-invasive treatment can help you sleep better than you have in years.

We provide multiple types of oral devices for sleep apnea. We can explain the different options and which may be best for you during a consultation. Why not schedule an appointment today?

A Variety of Options to Meet Your Specific Needs

Our goal is to help you achieve the best nights sleep you’ve had in years.  Once we determine the cause behind your condition, we’ll recommend the right Oral Device to solve the problem.

Hudson Valley Sleep Solutions provides the best solutions in the industry, including:

  • Snore Guard: If you suffer from loud snoring alone, we can provide specialized oral appliances to help reduce your snoring for a quiet night’s rest.
  • Respire Blue: This acrylic device repositions the jaws and has optional additional features for patients who sleep on their back, continue to snore, or suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.
  • Respire Blue EF: This specialized version of the Respire Blue uses highly advanced materials to produce a thinner device that provides more room for your tongue. Respire Blue’s optional additional features available.
  • Respire Pink: The Pink model is especially beneficial for patients who grind their teeth. It offers an ergonomic design that includes Herbst hardware, enabling us to advance the lower jaw forward while still allowing more free range of the jaws. Respire Blue’s optional additional features available.
  • Narval™ CC: Designed to hold the lower jaw forward, rather than pushing it, reducing discomfort for effective treatment.

The Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatments using Oral Devices

Oral devices offer a number of advantages over other forms of sleep apnea treatment.

Small and simple to use, these customized devices are easy to travel with and will not disturb sleep because of noise. This type of treatment enables patients who are intolerant of CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy to receive the vital care they need.

Oral devices can also be combined with CPAP treatment to provide more effective relief for your condition. Combining these two treatments can help you to experience reduced pressure and side effects from using a CPAP machine alone.
