If someone you love has been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, then you likely already know that treatment for sleep apnea can be incredibly important to your significant other’s overall health, including his or her temperament and ability to concentrate. Unfortunately, have you grown tired of the loud sound of your significant other’s CPAP machine at night? For many loved ones, the noise caused by the motor of a CPAP machine can be just as annoying as the loud snoring once was. While CPAP machines are commonly recommended to patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, the great news is that they are not the only way to effectively treat OSA. In fact, your dentist might just be able to offer a fast and effective treatment alternative!
CPAP Machines Aren’t the Only Way to Treat Sleep Apnea
In spite of their popularity, CPAP machines are not the only way to address sleep apnea. In fact, many patients find that less invasive alternatives provided by their dentist can be just as effective and even more comfortable for them and loved ones sleeping nearby.
Sleep appliances are a simple and silent treatment option, for instance.
Enjoy Better Sleep and Less Cumbersome Treatment
Custom sleep appliances are similar to the kind of mouthguards used to help aid in orthodontic treatment, and also to protect teeth during sporting events. That said, sleep appliances work by keeping soft tissues from blocking one’s airway as he or she sleeps.
If you are ready to find out if a sleep appliance could be a less invasive and quieter alternative to a CPAP machine, talk to your family’s dentist.
