Sleep disorder treatments

Surgical treatments

Maxillofacial surgery

This treatment is for patients with severe sleep apnea. During the procedure, the surgeon moves your jaw forward to expand your breathing space.

Palate Surgery

Palatal implants may be an option for patients who snore or have mild sleep apnea. During this surgery, small rods are placed in the soft palate of your mouth to prevent your airway form being blocked.

Upper Airway Stimulation

Upper Airway Stimulation is an FDA-approved, implantable, mask free treatment option for people with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. Inspire Medical Systems is the only company to offer UAS – the first-ever implantable device for treating OSA. Upper airway stimulation could be an option for patients who:

  • Have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea
  • Have concerns about sleep deprivation and lack oxygen while sleeping
  • Feel too tired to perform daily tasks 
  • Are not significantly overweight
  • Don’t benefit from a CPAP machine
  • At least 22 years of age

Non-surgical treatments

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)

is the most common—and most successful—treatment. CPAP is a device that blows air under pressure and pushes soft tissues aside during sleep. For those with mild sleep apnea, a dental device can be used to open the airway.
