Breathe Easily With Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea occurs when you experience pauses in breathing while you sleep. People with severe sleep apnea can experience these apnea episodes more than 30 times an hour. On an average night of sleep, this means you’ll stop breathing hundreds of times a night!

This takes a mighty toll on your body. There’s no way these pauses in breathing aren’t affecting your sleep, which in turn can affect your personal and work life.

There are two types of sleep apnea:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type of apnea, occurs when soft tissue is blocking your airway.
  • Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to send signals for you to breathe during sleep. CSA accounts for less than 10 percent of all sleep apnea diagnoses. Many times, when the airway is opened, the central sleep apnea portion is eliminated.

The Sleep Apnea Center of Novi has solutions for both, including CPAP and oral appliance therapy. The oral appliance is our most popular treatment due to its comfort and convenience. Because it’s comfortable, it will not disrupt your sleep like the CPAP machine. It eases your jaw into a position that keeps you breathing easily all night.
