There are a wide range of sleep disorders and each sleep therapy and treatment is tailored to your needs.
Taking steps to improve your sleeping environment and practices can promote healthier sleep. Examples include keeping a regular sleep schedule, having a bedtime routine, replacing a mattress or pillow, installing black-out blinds, or wearing earplugs.
Many sleep disorders have been linked to poor diet, too much caffeine, lack of physical activity, smoking and drug/alcohol use. One of the simplest sleep treatments, lifestyle changes can help improve sleep quality in a number of patients.
Patients with sleep disorders benefit from various sleep therapies, such as: cognitive behavioural therapy (CBTi), hypnotherapy or light therapy.
A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine is the most commonly prescribed solution for treating sleep apnea disorders. It provides a steady flow of air as you sleep, keeping airways open.
Oral appliances are designed to prevent grinding of the teeth during sleep (a sleep-related movement disorder). An oral appliance is molded for a custom fit. It is made by a sleep-trained dentist.
Depending on the nature and severity of the disorder, pharmaceutical medication may be prescribed under a doctor’s supervision.
