Sleep Apnea Treatment, With Dr. Mitch Conditt, Dentist, Fort Worth, Texas

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues, memory loss, impotence, headaches and a vast array of other problems.  Moreover, undetected sleep apnea can be responsible for job impairment and motor vehicle accidents, says Dr. Mitch Conditt, a dentist in Fort Worth, Texas, who treats patients for sleep apnea.

Depending on the severity of sleep apnea, treating it can be as simple as positional therapy or lifestyle changes, says Dr. Conditt.  However, the majority of the time the major treatment choices for sleep apnea include surgery, CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) or an oral appliance.
