Are you frustrated with your CPAP machine? While the most common treatment for sleep apnea is the use of a CPAP machine, many people have trouble sleeping with the machine and mask, so end up not using it. CPAP can be extremely effective, but not if the patient isn’t wearing it. Some patients even pull the mask off in their sleep, and have no memory of doing so when they wake in the morning.
Patients report that their CPAP has caused the following:
- Dry, stuffy nose
- Dry mouth
- Feeling of claustrophobia
- Irritated eyes and skin, including facial sores
- Difficulty sleeping
- Abdominal bloating
- Increased dreaming and nightmares
Our office offers an alternative treatment for sleep apnea so that you can throw out your bulky, uncomfortable CPAP machine. Our oral appliance gently aligns the tongue and supports the jaw in a forward position to allow airflow into your airway. Best of all, you don’t need the use of forced air from a CPAP.
Our oral appliance is custom fitted for you, like a sports mouth guard or orthodontic retainer, so it works seamlessly at night and won’t disrupt your sleep. It also eliminates snoring, so that your sleeping partner can finally get a good night’s sleep! When you commit to using the oral appliance every night, you’ll find that your symptoms reduce and your quality of sleep dramatically improves.
If you are fed up with your CPAP machine and are ready to try something better, find out if our oral appliance is right for you. Contact our office for a sleep consultation and start sleeping better now!
