Why Patients Choose Dental Appliance Sleep Apnea Treatment Over CPAP
Based on the severity condition, your doctor may have recommended sleep apnea treatment using a CPAP machine, which requires you to wear a mask or nasal attachment attached to an air pump during the night to assist the passage of air into your lungs. CPAP treatment is considered the gold standard of care, but countless patients have a hard time using it on a nightly basis, chiefly due to discomfort.
If your CPAP machine is in the closet, never to be used again, you are still at risk of serious health problems. You must get treatment for your sleep apnea as soon as possible, and that’s where dental appliance therapy for sleep apnea can be a lifesaver. Don’t leave yourself at risk. Find out if dental appliance therapy for sleep apnea is right for you. And if you have a combination of sleep apnea and TMJ, you’re in the right place.
According to The Academy Of Dental Sleep Medicine, dental appliances for sleep apnea treatment can help keep your airway open, improve your sleep, restore your alertness, and revitalize your health. So, if you have sleep apnea, TMJ, or both, ask your doctor for a referral to our office, or call 888-560-6674 to make an appointment.
