Sleep Apnea Treatment in
Waukegan

At Waukegan Family Dental, we use oral surgery to help sleep apnea patients. Our surgical procedure seeks to remove the excess tissue in the throat that is vibrating and blocking the upper air passages.

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Waukegan

One surgical procedure is an Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). This procedure involves removing the excess tissue from the upper mouth and throat. This procedure is performed in a hospital under general anesthesia. Maxillomandibular advancement is another type of procedure used to assist with sleep apnea. This procedure involves the upper and lower part of the jaw. In this procedure, the jaw is moved forward from the rest of the facial bones.

This allows more room behind the soft palate, thereby reducing the obstruction. Finally, a Tracheostomy is a last-ditch effort when other treatments have failed. This involves the surgeon inserting a tube in your throat so you can breathe. It is covered during the day but opens at night while you sleep. All of the surgeries mentioned above are routine and very safe.

An incredible staff and dentist! My procedure was painless and it was so nice to have a doctor who is willing to not only explain what he is doing but also LISTEN to his patient! I will continue coming back to Dr. Saad and to his wonderful staff!

Dr. Saad is great at what he does! I had all four wisdom teeth extracted and he's very gentle and really cares about your pain. The receptionist is very friendly. I recommend this office BIG time.
