With our custom-crafted oral appliances, similar to the kind we provide for TMJ disorders, you will enjoy the benefits of better sleep without many of the limitations and drawbacks of a standard CPAP machine. Here are a few of the reasons why:
- How It Works – A CPAP machine works very well to treat sleep apnea symptoms. But it requires you to wear a mask over your nose and mouth so that air continuously moves through your airways. An oral appliance is a mouthguard you wear while you sleep that keeps your jaw in an ideal position for sustained, easier breathing all night long.
- How It Feels – Because an oral device doesn’t involve pressurized air, you won’t experience the same uncomfortable morning symptoms, like a sore throat or dry mouth, that often come with a CPAP. Also an oral appliance fits comfortably inside your mouth, not over it like a CPAP mask.
- How It Fits Your Life – An oral appliance fits in the palm of your hand so you can easily incorporate it into your lifestyle. There is no unwieldy CPAP machine, no cumbersome cords or batteries, and no high-maintenance hose and mask.
Sleep apnea symptoms are so much more than uncomfortable annoyances. They can have a profound impact on your quality of life and your overall health. Don’t let this disorder continue to rob you of essential rest, intimacy with your partner, or the great health and energy you need to thrive.
