Sleep Apnea Treatment
Are you ready to enjoy the positive effects of sleep apnea treatment? With an oral appliance or one of our other CPAP alternatives, you will notice significant improvements to your quality of sleep and daily activities. Benefits of sleep apnea treatment include:
- Improved sleep for you, your bed partner, and your family members.
- Increased and easier flow of oxygen to the brain.
- Reduction or elimination of snoring.
- Decreased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
- Elevated mood and more level emotions.
- A happier, healthier, and more energetic life.
For the sake of your general health and wellbeing, it’s imperative that you seek treatment for any recurring symptoms of sleep disorders.
The CPAP Mask
The most common sleep apnea treatment is the CPAP machine. While this device works for some patients, we have found that many individuals struggle with it. Some patients find it bulky, uncomfortable, and not worth wearing. Some patients even cease treatment, which is dangerous.
Because of the difficulties that can be associated with this sleep apnea treatment, Montz and Maher Dental Group focuses on CPAP alternatives. Treatments like the oral appliance for sleep apnea may fit more easily into our patients’ busy lives.
As a result of this focus, we’ve helped dozens of patients enjoy a life free from the harmful effects of sleep apnea.
The SomnoDent Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea
One of our favorite CPAP alternatives is a custom-made oral appliance for sleep apnea. There are a variety of these on the market that will keep your airway open while you sleep. We use SomnoDent oral appliance for sleep apnea treatment.
Before resorting to drastic measures like sleep apnea surgery, the oral appliance is our first line of treatment. These appliances are designed with your unique teeth and bone structure in mind. They keep the position of the jawbone forward and open, promoting free and easy airflow throughout the night.
To rapidly reduce your symptoms, you should wear your appliance each night, just like an orthodontic retainer or mouthguard.
Simple Lifestyle Changes
Some patients don’t end up needing CPAP masks or oral appliances to see improvement to their symptoms. Many see results after implementing lifestyle changes, such as avoiding alcohol or muscle relaxants.
Other patients see improvements when they lose weight, quit smoking, or change their sleeping positions. With the help of our team’s assessment of your personal symptoms, you can determine which treatment options are best for you.
Other CPAP Alternatives
In some cases, we may suggest other CPAP alternatives for optimal sleep apnea treatment, including APap, BiPap, tongue-retaining oral appliances, nasal surgery, or other surgeries. Our suggestions will all depend on your unique needs, goals, and circumstances.
