If you’ve been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you’re most likely already aware of how much it affects your day-to-day life. Fortunately, multiple treatments exist to manage or treat your sleep apnea. Daytime fatigue, trouble breathing, poor sleep, snoring, and other symptoms can be corrected with personalized care from our experienced oral surgeons. You don’t want to wait to be treated if you have sleep apnea; it’s more than just loud snoring and fatigue. Obstructive sleep apnea can harm systemic health, increasing complications or risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Seeking treatment from our specialized oral surgeons is the best way to ensure your long-term health. As one of the only practices in the North Boston area to offer such a comprehensive range of sleep apnea treatments, we can help you sleep better and enjoy a better quality of life through personalized and predictable care.
An oral appliance fitted to the mouth that keeps the lower jaw and tongue from falling backward during sleep, so the airways remain unobstructed.
An appliance worn as a mask over the nose that supplies a constant flow of air during sleep so the tissues and tongue do not block the airways.
Rearranging the soft tissue of the palate, throat, and uvula to increase the size of the upper airway and reduce the possibility of obstructive tissue collapse during sleep.
Using a minimally invasive dental laser to remove the uvula in the upper back part of the mouth to expand the size of the airways, reduce snoring, and improve airflow.
Targeted, controlled heating of the throat with a radiofrequency probe to cause scarring of the tissue that tightens loose tissues and widens the airway.
Realignment or restructuring of the upper and/or lower jaws and surrounding tissues to permanently enlarge the airways and throat.
