Sleep Apnea Treatment Without a CPAP Machine
Oral Appliance Therapy is the Proven #1 Alternative to CPAP
Thankfully, medical and dental professionals have joined forces in creating a much less invasive solution with oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy uses a small, custom made oral appliance that is similar to a mouth guard that you wear while you sleep. The device is specially designed to fit your mouth comfortably and to meet your individual needs.
Sleep apnea appliances are designed to gently shift the lower jaw forward, preventing the airway from collapsing and allowing you to breathe comfortably throughout the night. No more obnoxious CPAP machine. With oral appliance therapy, you are free to sleep, breathe, and travel comfortably without being tied to a machine or an electrical outlet.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common and dangerous health problem that can significantly increase your risk of developing heart conditions and other systemic diseases. It can even be deadly. Sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep, preventing you from breathing properly throughout the night.
