Sleep Apnea Treatments in Helena, MT

Sleep apnea, characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep, can lead to significant health issues. This condition occurs when muscles relax, causing the airway to close due to gravity. The resulting short-term suffocation places a strain on the body, potentially leading to heart conditions, memory loss, mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, and hypertension. While solutions like airway surgeries (tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, or maxillofacial surgery) and CPAP devices are common, they might not suit everyone. For those seeking alternative treatments, Melton Dental in Helena, MT offers a comfortable and effective solution. Dr. Sean Melton specializes in crafting custom-fit nighttime guards designed to alleviate sleep apnea symptoms. These guards are a simple, comfortable, and effective way to improve your health and wellness, providing much-needed relief for those struggling with sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea treatment with Dr. Melton at Melton Dental utilizes what is referred to as oral appliance therapy (OAT), which can be quite an effective treatment for sleep apnea. It's a custom-made device that fits in your mouth at night. It is often compared to a mouth guard for athletic events or even a retainer. The major difference is that instead of protecting your teeth from trauma, it gently pulls the jaw into a forward position to keep your airway open. There are more than a hundred unique versions on the market so Dr. Melton will work together with you to be certain to get the right one for you. This will be determined after he conducts an assessment of your jaw, tongue, airway, and teeth. You will also have oral x-rays performed so that Dr. Melton may create impressions of your teeth for your oral appliance.

At Melton Dental in Helena, MT, a variety of sleep apnea treatments are offered, each designed to bring relief and enhance the overall wellness of individuals suffering from this sleep disorder. Some benefits of sleep apnea treatment include:

  • Boosted wellness
  • Boosted oxygen numbers in the body, leading to better organ function
  • Reduced risk of stroke, heart disease, and high blood pressure
  • Reduced snoring, resulting in better sleep quality
  • Minimized likelihood of car accidents and better safety while driving
  • Improved moods

I had an emergency during a holiday weekend and they were the only office between Helena and Bozeman that would help. Since that time, I’ve been going to Dr. Melton. He’s thorough and makes sure there is no pain during procedures. His staff is wonderful too. Highly recommend!

If your breathing was interrupted numerous times every day from your own airway being blocked, you would ask for medical advice straight away. But when the same thing occurs during your sleep, it can be all too simple to put off because you won't remember it when you wake up. If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, then we encourage you to arrange for an appointment at Melton Dental at your earliest convenience.
