If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may have been prescribed a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.

While CPAP is a common treatment for sleep apnea, it can be uncomfortable and difficult to use for some people. If you are struggling with CPAP or are looking for a more comfortable and convenient alternative, oral device therapy may be a good option for you.

CPAP machines work by delivering a steady stream of air to the airway, which helps to keep it open and prevent sleep apnea. However, CPAP can be uncomfortable and difficult to use for some people. Some common complaints include:

=

Difficulty sleeping with the mask on

=

Dry mouth and nose

=

Sore throat

=

Difficulty traveling with the machine

=

Claustrophobic and PTSD issues

=

Hoses get tangled for active sleepers

If you are struggling to use your CPAP machine, you may be looking for a more comfortable and convenient alternative. Oral device therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that can be effective in managing sleep apnea and improving sleep quality. It involves wearing a small device in your mouth while you sleep, which helps to keep the airway open and prevent sleep apnea symptoms.

Oral device therapy is a non-invasive treatment option for people with mild to moderate sleep apnea. It offers a comfortable and convenient alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, especially for those who are not able to comply with CPAP therapy.

Oral device therapy works by holding the lower jaw in a forward position while you sleep, which helps to keep the airway open and prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the throat, which can cause sleep apnea symptoms such as loud snoring and frequent awakenings.

Oral device therapy has been proven to significantly improve sleep apnea symptoms, including oxygen saturation levels and daytime sleepiness. It offers a more comfortable option than a CPAP mask as it is custom fitted to your mouth, ensuring a comfortable fit and maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment.

The devices are discreet and silent, allowing for a more attractive option compared to a CPAP mask. They are also great for travel as they are low maintenance and can easily be tucked away in your luggage or carry-on.
Oral device therapy has better-reported treatment compliance rates compared to CPAP, making it a more attractive option for patients. It is a preferred treatment option among many patients and healthcare providers as it is non-invasive, comfortable, and easy to use.
