Our Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

At Hood Canal Family Dental, we offer a holistic approach to treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), providing personalized treatment options that cater to your specific needs and lifestyle. Let Dr. Downing and his team guide you on your journey towards healthier and uninterrupted sleep.

Custom Oral Appliance Therapy

We specialize in creating custom-fitted oral appliances approved by the FDA for treating sleep apnea. These easy-to-wear devices help to keep your airway open during sleep, providing an effective and non-invasive solution to sleep apnea.

Positional Sleep Therapy

For patients who experience sleep apnea or snoring mainly when sleeping on their back, we offer positional sleep therapy. Our techniques and advice can help you transition to side-sleeping, potentially reducing sleep disturbances.

Weight Management Program

Our team provides comprehensive weight management strategies for overweight or obese sleep apnea patients. Achieving weight loss can significantly reduce the severity of sleep apnea, leading to overall improved health.

Lifestyle Modification & Alternative Healing

We emphasize the importance of lifestyle changes and offer guidance on alcohol abstinence before bedtime. We also introduce patients to alternative healing methods, such as wind instrument playing, to assist in managing sleep apnea.
