Sleep apnea can wreak havoc on your health, wellbeing, and quality of life. This condition is a sleep disorder in which your breathing stops and starts throughout the night, typically shocking you awake, gasping for air. If you have sleep apnea, you likely spend your days feeling groggy and lacking energy – you are not getting healthy, quality sleep. Our North Scottsdale sleep apnea surgery can resolve this condition and help you have a happier, more fulfilling life.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition that results in periodic moments of halted breathing during sleep. It is triggered by a relaxation of the throat muscles, often made worse by an obstruction in your nose, throat or mouth. Sleep apnea causes you to snore and wake periodically in the night, losing out on quality sleep, disturbing your partner, and placing stress on your body that can lead to high blood pressure and other issues.
What surgical options do I have for snoring or sleep apnea in Scottsdale?
There are several surgical options for sleep apnea in North Scottsdale dependent on your particular case. Each patient may have different points of obstruction that’s causing snoring and sleep apnea, which will result in a separate surgical procedure. The options for snoring or sleep apnea should be discussed with your surgeon, but include these surgical treatments:
- Maxillomandibular advancement
- Radiofrequency volumetric tissue reduction
- Anterior inferior mandibular osteotomy
- Genioglossus advancement
- Midline glossectomy and tongue reduction
