Sleep Apnea Surgery
Snoring and Sleep Apnea significantly impacts sleep, mental function, and overall health, and affects ever-increasing numbers of our population.
How we treat Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Depending on the severity of your Sleep Apnea, we will provide you with the best options available to you. This can range from simple lifestyle changes through to permanent corrections with Jaw Surgery.
The primary cause of Sleep Apnea in most people, are obstructions to breathing resulting from the structure of their jaws, face or airway.
Lifestyle factors can exacerbate Snoring and Sleep Apnea. This might be from increased fat around the neck due to weight gain, or reduced airway muscle tone from consuming sedatives or alcohol.
Small or narrow jaws, crowded or misaligned teeth, previous Orthodontic treatment, or impacted Wisdom Teeth, all point to a predisposition towards Snoring and Sleep Apnoea.
The structure of your face is unique to you. Before embarking on your treatment journey, we will assess you with unique 3D Modelling of your jaws and face to work out the finer details of your treatment.
This will give you a complete understanding into the detailed workings of your condition, and will give you the information and insight you need to make an informed treatment decision.
