Most people fail to realize that sleep apnea is often caused by misalignment of the jawbone, which can lead to obstructed breathing, snoring, and other problems. Dr. Fathimani is a world-renowned oral and maxillofacial surgeon who uses cutting-edge surgical techniques to address the structural root cause of sleep apnea and work with you for a personalized sleep apnea treatment in Lone Tree.
The Connection Between Your Jaw & Sleep
Misalignment of the jawbone is one of the primary reasons for obstructive sleep apnea. When your jaws are not aligned properly, the soft palate can collapse and the tongue can block the airway, leading to breathing difficulties in your sleep. If you’re suffering from severe sleep apnea, surgically repositioning the upper and lower jaw to increase the size of the airway can provide significant relief. Dr. Fathimani offers orthognathic surgery as a last-resort option if all other sleep apnea treatments fail to yield sustainable results.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea:
- Loud and persistent snoring
- Pauses in breathing
- Choking or gasping during sleep
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Waking up with a headache
- Trouble staying asleep
- Feeling irritable or angry
- Depression and fatigue
- Memory problems
In most cases, patients suffering from sleep apnea fail to notice the most obvious signs because they don’t recall their lapses in breathing. That’s why most people with sleep apnea are notified by their sleep partners or roommates about loud snoring. If you notice the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea, you must schedule a consultation with Dr. Fathimani.
Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea
During your consultation for sleep apnea treatment in Lone Tree, Dr. Fathimani will assess your maxillofacial region, analyze the jawbone positioning, and perform a skull x-ray to determine if there’s a structural obstruction responsible for your symptoms. He may perform a naso-pharyngeal exam using a flexible fiber-optic camera and order a sleep study. After a thorough evaluation, he will curate a personalized sleep apnea treatment plan.
