What is causal sleep apnea therapy?

Sleep apnea surgery (surgical relocation of the upper and lower jaw with rotation) is the only treatment method that eliminates the causes of obstructive sleep apnea. After the operation, the symptoms are reduced or they usually disappear completely and you can sleep soundly through the night again. This also benefits your partner, as they are no longer disturbed by each other's snoring.

How does causal therapy work?

These are the advantages of causal sleep apnea therapy compared to CPAP therapy

No breathing pauses

By moving the upper and lower jaw forward, the airways are cleared by moving the tongue, the soft palate and the hyoid bone forward as well. Both apneas (cessation of breathing) and hypopnoeas (reduction of respiratory flow) are thus eliminated. The treatment can lead to a cure.

No sleep laboratory visits

By advancing the jaws, the airways are sufficiently opened permanently and thus sleep apnea is cured. Annoying sleep laboratory visits are now a thing of the past.

No more CPAP

By freeing the airways, an adequate supply of oxygen is ensured, so that most patients can completely dispense with the CPAP breathing mask / oxygen mask immediately after surgery for sleep apnea.

More upright posture

A narrowing of the airways not only means a poor night's sleep, but also a poor oxygen supply during the day. Sleep apnoeics tend to unconsciously stretch their head forward to keep the airways open. This causes severe tension and pain in the neck, shoulders and back. The widening of the airways also significantly improves posture.

No more dental splints necessary

Protrusion splints (snoring splints), which force the lower jaw into a forward position during sleep, can help many sufferers. However, the jaw joints are severely affected and cause severe pain over time. After sleep apnea surgery, the airways are dilated and open. Symptomatic therapy is no longer necessary.

Better appearance

By moving the upper and lower jaw forward, the skin is tightened and the complete face looks more natural and younger. Wrinkles are tightened from the inside. Due to the good oxygen supply, dark circles are reduced and the face regains a healthier colour.

Air supply even when awake

Obstructive sleep apnea means: Affected people have breathing pauses during sleep due to a narrowing of the airways. But the airways are also narrowed during the day and breathing is difficult. Most sleep apnea sufferers do not notice this, however, because the body gradually gets used to it. Although apnea does not occur when the patient is awake, at least the flow of air is reduced. By eliminating the cause of obstructive sleep apnea through causal therapy, the airways are also open wide enough during the day to ensure a sufficient supply of breathing air.

Marriage bed again at last

Not only sleep apnea sufferers suffer from poor sleep quality, but also their own partner. Many report that they feel disturbed by the noise of the CPAP mask during sleep. It is not uncommon that the person sleeping next to them then decides to move out of the shared bedroom. After the cause has been eliminated through sleep apnea surgery, positive pressure ventilation becomes unnecessary. Thus, separate bedrooms are a thing of the past.

No deformation of the face

Every sleep apnea patient who has been treated with a CPAP mask for several years knows it: The face begins to deform. It usually starts with impressions that do not disappear during the day and gets worse from year to year. Both jaws, which naturally receive horizontal growth spurts, are pushed backwards and squeezed. The result: the airways narrow all the more. By eliminating the cause with our causal therapy method, the breathing mask is no longer necessary and the airways are sufficiently widened.

More upright head posture

People with narrowed airways are not only prone to obstructive sleep apnea, but also to hyperextension of the head. This constant malpositioning of the head also affects other parts of the body. Through a bimaxillary advancement with CounterClockwise rotation, the narrowing of the airways is eliminated and the body usually regains its optimal posture after a very short time. Here is a clinical example.

Cardiovascular risk at normal level

The risk of cardiovascular diseases is many times higher in sleep apnea patients than in non-affected patients, despite CPAP therapy. By eliminating the cause with the bimaxillary advancement with rotation, the cardiovascular risk decreases to a normal level.

Tinnitus is reduced

Both regular snoring due to sleep apnea and misalignment of the jaws can be the cause of tinnitus or at least promote this condition. By simultaneously correcting the skeletal jaw malposition and by widening the airways, two possible causes of tinnitus are eliminated.

The airway before and after sleep apnea surgery (bimaxillary advancement with CounterClockwise rotation)

By advancing both jaws, the obstruction (narrowing) of the airways was corrected. After the sleep apnea operation (bimaxillary advancement), there is sufficient space in the airways and this patient no longer has breathing pauses during sleep. With sleep apnea therapy, those affected benefit from numerous advantages and increase their quality of life many times over.
