Can't wear CPAP
Now there is an effective way to control snoring and obstructive sleep apnea without resorting to cumbersome CPAP devices. A small device, similar to an orthodontic appliance, can be an alternative to cumbersome CPAP machines and, in some cases, be the first choice for treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is generally considered the mainstay of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. However, in almost half of the cases where it is prescribed, it is poorly tolerated or simply rejected due to its cumbersome and intrusive nature.
Other objections include:
- Nasal Congestion
- Sinus Problems
- Skin Irritation
- Mask Leaks
If you or a loved one snores or has had difficulty wearing their medically prescribed CPAP, we have had the years of experience necessary to offer a unique dental solution. We are happy to consult with those who feel that they are having a problem with snoring or sleep apnea but have not been diagnosed and as well as those who are unable or unwilling to wear a CPAP unit. We also work closely with other dentists in the area and with family physicians and sleep specialists.
