What is sleep apnea?

Do you feel tired next day despite sleeping in the night? Sleep apnea could be the reason. Sleep apnea is the medical term for a disorder where the body involuntarily stops to breathe when in deep sleep. Our body experiences a lot of discomfort in its state of rest if you have sleep apnea. The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Sleep disorder specialist:

Sleep apnea if undetected and untreated can lead to many complicated health issues like heart disease and depression. So it is extremely important to consult a sleep disorder specialist, especially Dr. JC Goodwin of Sleep Effect Center for Apnea Management in Flagstaff and Prescott Valley, for a check up.

The CPAP treatment method:

The oldest known method to deal with sleep apnea is the CPAP machine/Continuous positive airway pressure machine. This is however a very inconvenient treatment method. Most people opt out of treatment due to the high level of discomfort.

CPAP Alternatives:

Sleep Apnea Specialist for Flagstaff and Prescott Valley specializes in alternate methods to treat sleep apnea.

  • They also offer Positional Therapy that includes alteration in sleep position. These methods are known to help a patient overcome sleep apnea in the most natural method possible.
  • Surgery is recommended by oral and maxillofacial surgeons for some cases. These surgeries are conducted to treat the upper airway obstruction and can be minimal invasive or major depending on the severity of the case.

The most effective alternative:

OAT (Oral Appliance Therapy) or OAT involves fitting removable and customized appliances in your mouth that helps regulate your breathing and reduces snoring. This treatment method was pioneered by Dr. JC Goodwin who established Sleep Effect Center for Apnea Management.

Advantages of OAT:

  • CPAP averse patients find it easier to opt for OAT.
