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!

What Our Patients Say

One day during my morning prayer and meditation I had to look up the word honorable. The word is rich in meaning and implies the purest, highest, noblest kind of goodness. Honorable means “lovely”, “winsome”, “gracious”, “noble” and “excellent’. Your name, Winsome, definitely describes your character and your practice. God bless and keep you!!!

Dr. Ward, I want you to know how much I appreciate the care I have received here. I am so happy with the improvement in my gums, and it is because of your emphasis on preventive oral care. It has made a huge difference, and I thank you.

Beginning in 1995 Dr. Ward took over my dental care. She has proven to be as painless as I believe possible. My bridges have performed perfectly. My extractions have been very few, and my partial is working without incident. I recommend that anyone needing dental work consider using Dr. Ward.

Rudolph Hughes

Since having my first traumatic experience as a 9 year old with an army dentist I was always anxious about going to the dentist; my muscles would get tense, and I would grip the arms of the dentist chair, anticipating the worst.
But what a difference Dr. Ward has made in my previously harrowing experiences with dentists. With her calm caring manner and soothing touch, I actually became more relaxed in the dentist chair. What a relief!

Then as a bonus, there are times she would softly hum a tune which even makes me more calm, like a mother soothing an anxious baby – I guess I must have been a big baby when it came to dentists, but not anymore! Thank God for Dr. Ward! And her friendly staff aren’t too bad either.
