Sleep Apnea Treatment with a Holistic Touch

Sleep apnea is a common yet serious condition that disrupts your breathing during sleep, leading to poor rest and various health issues. At Elevate Dental Wellness in Basalt, CO, we offer holistic sleep apnea treatments focusing on non-invasive and natural remedies, ensuring a better night’s sleep and improved overall health.


Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the back of your throat relax excessively, causing partial or complete airway obstruction. This interruption in breathing can lead to fragmented sleep, loud snoring, and daytime fatigue. Traditional treatments often involve Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines, but many patients seek alternatives that align with a holistic approach to health.


Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea Treatment

One effective holistic treatment option for sleep apnea is using oral appliances. These custom-made devices are designed to keep your airway open by repositioning your jaw and tongue. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we create custom oral appliances that fit comfortably and help maintain proper airflow during sleep. These devices are non-invasive, easy to use, and offer a more convenient alternative to CPAP machines.


Natural Remedies for Better Sleep

In addition to oral appliances, we recommend several natural remedies to complement your sleep apnea treatment:

  1. Lifestyle Changes: Incorporating regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime can significantly reduce sleep apnea symptoms. These changes promote better overall health and can lessen the severity of airway obstructions.
  2. Positional Therapy: Sleeping on your side instead of your back can prevent the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the airway. Special pillows or devices that encourage side-sleeping can be beneficial.
  3. Diet and Nutrition: Consuming a balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help reduce swelling and congestion in the airways. Foods high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids support respiratory health.
  4. Essential Oils: Essential oils, such as lavender and eucalyptus, can help open airways and improve breathing. Using a diffuser in your bedroom or adding drops to your pillow can enhance your sleep quality.


NightLase® Therapy: An Innovative Solution

At Elevate Dental Wellness, we also offer NightLase® therapy, a cutting-edge treatment that uses laser technology to reduce the effects of sleep apnea and snoring. This non-invasive procedure involves gently heating the tissues in the throat to stimulate collagen production, tightening the tissues, and opening the airway. NightLase® is a safe, painless, and effective alternative for patients seeking holistic sleep apnea treatment without surgery or CPAP machines.
