Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Are you struggling with snoring or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)? We understand the impact these conditions can have on your life, and we're here to help. At BreatheSleepMD Clinic, our mission is to provide expert guidance and tailored solutions to alleviate your sleep problems.
Understanding Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a prevalent sleep disorder that occurs when the muscles in the throat relax excessively, leading to temporary airway blockages. These blockages result in brief pauses in breathing during sleep, often accompanied by loud snoring, choking, or gasping. The consequences of OSA include disrupted sleep patterns, daytime fatigue, and potential health risks.
Accurate Diagnosis for Personalized Treatment
Our team of experienced specialists at BreatheSleepMD Clinic utilizes advanced diagnostic tools, including comprehensive sleep studies (polysomnography), to accurately assess the severity of your condition. We analyze various factors such as brain activity, heart rate, and more to create a precise profile of your sleep.
Effective Management Strategies for OSA
Once diagnosed, we work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan. Our range of effective management strategies includes:
- Lifestyle Modifications: Our experts provide guidance on practical lifestyle changes such as weight management, reducing alcohol and sedative use, and adopting healthier sleep habits.
- CPAP and BiPAP Devices: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) devices are proven solutions. They maintain an open airway during sleep, ensuring uninterrupted breathing and quieter nights. - https://www.sleepfoundation.org/cpap
- Inspire Therapy: Inspire therapy is an innovative surgical treatment for OSA. It involves the implantation of a small device under the skin near the collarbone. This device stimulates the hypoglossal nerve during sleep, preventing airway collapse by gently moving the tongue and other throat tissues forward. It's a promising option for individuals who do not respond well to CPAP or cannot tolerate it. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQJOLoKrFmI
- Oral Mandibular Advancement Devices (OMADs): OMADs are custom-made dental appliances that resemble mouthguards. These devices are designed to reposition the lower jaw and tongue slightly forward, which helps keep the airway open during sleep. OMADs are a non-invasive alternative for individuals with mild to moderate OSA or those who prefer an option other than CPAP.

Snoring often precedes OSA and can disrupt your sleep as well as your partner's. Common causes of snoring include obesity, nasal congestion, alcohol consumption, and sleeping position. At BreatheSleepMD Clinic, we address the underlying causes of snoring to improve sleep quality.
