Dental appliances to stop snoring and treat sleep apnea
Thanks to modern dentistry and dental technology, many people can overcome snoring and sleep apnea, a potentially life-threatening condition that causes people to stop breathing repeatedly while they sleep. The gold standard for obstructive sleep apnea treatment was a special device called a CPAP machine, which stands for continuous positive airway pressure.
A CPAP machine consists of a special mask and tubing you wear during sleep to force your breathing passages open so you can breathe normally during sleep and stop snoring. The main problem with a CPAP machine is actually getting patients to wear the device during sleep. It is not the most comfortable treatment and it takes most patients a while to adapt to it.
A dental appliance that can change everything
Today, with the help of a specialized, custom-made dental appliance, sleep apnea patients and those who want to stop snoring, with or without sleep apnea, have an exciting new treatment option that can replace the CPAP machine with a simple mouthpiece that you wear comfortably while you sleep. Unlike CPAP, it doesn’t need a power source, special maintenance or parts replacement.
