Get Rid of Your CPAP
Research has shown that for patients with mild to moderate Sleep Apnea an oral appliance can be as effective as CPAP therapy.
Candidates for Oral Appliances include patients with diagnosed Sleep Apnea and who might prefer the convenience of an Oral Appliance as opposed to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). These include:
Those who for various reasons can't or won't wear their CPAP
Those who do not respond to CPAP therapy
Patients that are not appropriate candidates for CPAP
Patients who fail treatment attempts with CPAP
Patients who have failed treatment with behavioral measures such as weight loss or sleep position change.
This small plastic device fits in the mouth during sleep like a sports mouthguard or orthodontic retainer. Oral appliances help prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat, keeping the airway open during sleep and promoting adequate air intake. Oral appliances may be used alone or in combination with other treatments for sleep-related breathing disorders, such as weight management, surgery or CPAP.
