Welcome to TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland. We are dedicated to providing exceptional care and treatment for individuals suffering from sleep apnea. In this section, we will explain what sleep apnea is, discuss treatment options, and demonstrate how our center can assist you in finding relief.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep. These interruptions, known as apneas, can last for a few seconds to several minutes and occur repeatedly throughout the night. The two primary types of sleep apnea are obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): OSA is the most prevalent form of sleep apnea. It occurs when the muscles in the throat relax, leading to a partial or complete blockage of the airway. This obstruction restricts airflow, resulting in disrupted breathing and temporary awakenings during sleep.

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA): CSA is less common and differs from OSA. It happens when the brain fails to send appropriate signals to the muscles responsible for controlling breathing. As a result, the individual experiences lapses in breathing without any physical blockage in the airway.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea:

Effective treatment for sleep apnea is crucial to prevent potential health complications and restore quality sleep. Our center offers comprehensive treatment options tailored to address your specific needs. Here are some common approaches we employ:

  • Oral Appliance Therapy: This non-invasive treatment involves using a custom-fitted oral appliance that helps reposition the jaw and tongue, keeping the airway open during sleep. The appliance is comfortable, portable, and an excellent alternative for those who cannot tolerate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.
  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): CPAP therapy utilizes a machine that delivers a constant flow of pressurized air through a mask worn over the nose or mouth. This air pressure helps keep the airway open, preventing apneas and ensuring uninterrupted breathing throughout the night.
  • Combination Therapy: In some cases, a combination of oral appliance therapy and CPAP may be recommended to maximize the effectiveness of treatment. This approach can be beneficial for individuals with complex or severe sleep apnea.

This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients.
