Do You Find Yourself Falling Asleep on the Job?Have you been diagnosed with sleep apnea? Do you fall asleep during waking hours or snore loudly when you sleep? If you already use the CPAP device, you may be frustrated with the bulkiness and inconvenience to use it or carry it with you when you travel. The CPAP device is the traditional solution for sleep apnea. It is a machine that pumps air into a mask that fits over a patient’s nose or mouth. Wearing a mask throughout the night is uncomfortable for many people, so they stop wearing it.
We have a different solution to this problem – a small, acrylic oral appliance that fits over your upper and lower teeth. It will gently realign the position of your jaw and tongue, allowing air to flow into your lungs while you sleep. It has been very successful in 90% of patients. It is easily inserted or removed and easy to carry along when traveling. Give us a call today if you have this problem, so you can start getting a good night’s rest.
