Do you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?
Did you know that in the US, over 18 million individuals suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)? Sleep apnea not only causes sleep deprivation and general fatigue, but it can lead to serious health issues over time and can even become a life-threatening disorder if it remains untreated.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when the palate and tongue become sucked against the sides and back of the throat and blocks the airway while the individual is sleeping. This process disrupts the sleepers breathing pattern and causes them to abruptly awaken to clear the airway with a gasp.
Although there are many treatment options for patients with OSA, several of the options only temporarily address the issue with patients and can sometimes create more breathing issues for the patient.
With 96% to 100% success rate, Maxillomandibular Advancement Surgery (MMA) is the most successful OSA treatment option and is a permanent solution for the problem. MMA is a procedure performed by a Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon where the jaw bones are moved forward in order to allow better airflow for the patient.
