“Over 70 million Americans suffer from disorders of sleep and wakefulness with 2 million of those being children. An estimated 10 million Americans remain undiagnosed.”

Treating Sleep Disorders

Oral Appliances  |  CPAP  |  Improve Sleep Habits  |  Medication  |  Surgery

The Alabama Sleep Clinic fully integrates treatment into overall patient care. After your doctor diagnoses your sleep disorder, you will continue to receive service and support from not only your doctor, but the entire Alabama Sleep Clinic staff. This is especially true if you suffer from sleep apnea. At Alabama Sleep Clinic, we have in-house services for all of the equipment and supplies you'll need to conquer sleep apnea.

The first step to effective treatment is making an appointment to discuss your sleep problems with one of our doctors and possibly participating in an overnight sleep study. After your doctor has all of the information he needs to help you, your doctor and our staff will guide you through the process of getting the treatment you need.

The following sections outline a few of the possible treatment options for your sleep disorder. Select the links to read more information about each option.

Wear an oral appliance

Sometimes wearing a simple device in your mouth (an oral appliance) while you sleep will keep your airway open and help you get the sleep you need. We have a dentist on our staff to fit you for an oral device right here in our office.  [top]

Use a CPAP

The most common type of treatment for sleep disorders is a CPAP. This is a mask that you wear while you're sleeping to create the right amount of air to enter your lungs. We have a CPAP clinic in our office to help you get fitted for a device and provide any help you need with your CPAP.  [top]

Improve your sleep habits

Your doctor will suggest that you try to improve your sleep habits. Sometimes making simple changes in your lifestyle dramatically improves the quality of your sleep.  [top]

Take medication

Sometimes medication can help alleviate insomnia or other sleep problems. Your doctor will determine if this is a good option for you.  [top]

Surgery

Surgery is always a last resort, but sometimes surgery can be effective at solving your sleep problems.  [top]
