An oral appliance for sleep apnea is often the best option for patients who struggle with traditional CPAP Therapy. If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and are looking for an alternative to CPAP, Oral Appliance Therapy might be the right fit for you.

How Does an Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea Work?

Oral Appliance Therapy offers relief by gently controlling your tongue and soft palate, keeping your airway open while you sleep. The oral appliance resembles an orthodontic retainer that fits comfortably in your mouth.  Designed for comfort, they are sleek and custom fit to you.

If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and looking for an alternative to CPAP therapy, contact Sleep Medicine Therapies.

Benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy

Successful Oral Appliance Therapy offers the same health benefits as traditional CPAP. With successful treatment you reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Additionally, daytime alertness, concentration, and emotional stability can be restored.

Many patients find Oral Appliance Therapy to be more convenient. There are no cords, no masks, and no noisy machine. Additionally, patients appreciate how easy it is to travel with their oral appliance. Unlike CPAP, oral appliances are small. They easily fit in a purse or carry-on bag.

Furthermore, successful treatment often benefits our families. After all, we are a lot more fun to live with when we are well rested.  A good night’s sleep increases our energy and helps us stay on task. Additionally, Oral Appliance Therapy means our sleep partners enjoy a quieter night’s sleep.
