Sleep Apnea

Many people who suffer from sleep apnea have no idea they have the condition. However, there are signs that point to it, which most suffers dismiss as being unrelated. Some of the typical signs of sleep apnea include:
  • Waking with headaches in the morning.
  • Feeling excessively tired during the day.
  • Snoring or choking when sleeping.
  • Inability to fall asleep without medication.
  • Waking up with a sore throat or dry mouth.

When it comes to the treatment of sleep apnea, no medicine or device has been as effective as the CPAP machine. The problem with this device, however, is that most patients dislike the mask and/or the noise the machine makes. More than 80% of patients who are prescribed CPAP machines do not use them.

If you are concerned you have sleep apnea or you have been diagnosed and want an alternative to the CPAP, you should look into Oral Appliance Therapy. This therapy used a custom-made appliance to help open the airway while sleeping. These appliances are small and comfortable, making them an excellent alternative to the CPAP.
