Some of the most common treatments now a days, with low level outcomes or undesirable side effects are CPAP Therapy and Snoring Devices. You can read more about the concept and effectiveness at the links below.
It is highly recommended to respond with an approach of long-term results and no side effects. You can go to the next link to read more about this Sleep Apnea Surgery..
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), helps people with Snoring and Sleep Apnea to breath during sleep. CPAP therapy increases air pressure in your throat to prevent your airway from collapsing.
Patients who use CPAP therapy feel they experience quality of life benefits from reduced snoring, reduced daytime sleepiness, less anxiety and depression, and an improved feeling of general wellbeing.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine published that the CPAP Therapy can improve a person´s quality of life and reduce their cardiovascular risk, but only so long as it is used for a minimun of 7 hours a night, and for the entirety of that person´s lifespan. Other recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded CPAP did not prevent cardiovascular events in people with moderate-severe Sleep Apnea and estabilished cardiovascular disease and only 42% of the participants had “good adherence” to CPAP, a minimun of 4 hours use per night.
This present review summarises that it can help the condition depending on the severity of the patients´ case, however if the patient has a low adherence to the therapy will not experience the expected results.
Snoring Devices can help people with Snoring and Sleep Apnea with breathing during sleep. Snoring Devices consist of two components which fit over the upper and lower teeth.
As your jaws close and your teeth come together, the Snoring Device pushes your jaw forward. This stretches the muscles supporting your airway, which may help to reduce breathing obstructions.
Snoring Devices are only recommended for treating Snoring and mild to moderate Sleep Apnea. More severe OSA requires ongoing treatment with CPAP therapy, or permanent resolution with Jaw Surgery.
Patients who use Snoring Devices might feel improvements to their overall well-being, from a reduction in their snoring, daytime sleepiness, anxiety, and depression.
But there are common side effects with Snoring Devices. These include dry mouth, tooth discomfort or pain, excess saliva production, jaw stiffness or soreness, changes to your bite, and the loosening of teeth.
There may be improvements to quality of life and cardiovascular risk with Snoring Devices, but these must be weighed against the potential for chronic jaw joint problems and limits in treating more severe OSA.
